World goes gaga over Chihuahuas

I just heard about this Paris Hilton Syndrome and thought it’s about her fashion statement. Partially yes. It’s not just about her fashion statement, it’s about her Chihuahua which has made people to call Paris Hilton Syndrome! I heard that people in the US are looking out for Chihuahuas, fashionable Chihuahuas to say the least.

The small trendy dog with pointed ears and oversized eyes is taking up space to a degree never seen before. Stars own them and people are going crazy to own them as well.

Celebrities like Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Hillary Duff and Mickey Rourke are often seen in public sporting Chihuahuas. Actress Reese Witherspoon’s character in Naturally Blond also had a Chihuahua called Bruiser.  These people have helped turn the breed into a fashionable accessory.


I wonder, if people really care for those tiny animals. They might think that Chihuahuas are small and can fit into a handbag that they would have a cool companion. But they should also think that having a dog means giving it a lot of care and training or that the breed is susceptible to sickness and costs a lot of money to keep healthy. They might not feel the pinch of having such breeds till they get high veterinary costs which can ruin the fun of having them at home.

I always love dogs and have them around. It’s been my dream that my children should also grow around them. But I make sure that I don’t blindly imitate any celeb to have a dog. I keep in my mind my needs and necessities before owning one. People should think if they have enough space, time and not the least good financial condition to support dogs if they get any foreign breeds.
