11/22/2002: The Petersburg Orchid



This is a Petersburg Orchid, a toy breed of dog that weighs in at about 4 pounds and costs around $1000. In Russia.

It's a new breed, possibly a mix of a yorkie and a stalk of broccoli.

It's been one of Yahoo!s Most Popular images this week, which probably indicates that a lot of people saw the thumbnail and just had to see what the hell it was.

The nice thing about this turn of events is that the Russians are becoming interested in small dogs specifically because they are bourgoise. In the Communist USSR, only larger dogs were in favor. Now a dog can be something that only returns love and doesn't have to be a working dog.

I would buy one of those in a second. I like dogs pretty okay, but man... I bet you could teach it to use a litter pan and everything. It'd be like a mini-cat... only a dog.

My roommate has a 2.5 pound chihuahua that uses a litter box and prefers cat food. You'd swear she actually is a cat.

I think I'll get one of these. Then I'll make a little basket with a harness, kind of like you see on elephants, and put it on my St. Bernard. Then the little toy dog can ride around like, um, like one of those guys who rides around on elephants.

What are those guys called? It's on the tip of my tongue, or the tip of my brain anyway.

Cats will play with and kill roaches.

Dumber cats will eat them.

Does pet ownership make more sense to you now?

Perhaps one day, we will be the pets of a greater being...remember the song "Pets" by Porno for Pyros?

That's because you're obviously a sociopath who is unable to understand how a human being could fashion an emotional link to an animal(or, another human for that matter).

Locking someone in your house for years on end and feeding them dry cereal and occasional trash seems odd to you? Freak!
