Sorry if this was already posted.



MASONVILLE, Colo. — Zoey is a Chihuahua, but when a rattlesnake lunged at her owners' 1-year-old grandson, she was a real bulldog.

Booker West was splashing his hands in a birdbath in his grandparents' northern Colorado back yard when the snake slithered up to the toddler, rattled and struck. Five-pound Zoey jumped in the way and took the bites.

"She got in between Booker and the snake, and that's when I heard her yipe," Monty Long, the boy's grandfather, said Thursday.

The dog required treatment and for a time it appeared she might not survive the bites she suffered earlier this month. Now she prances about.

"These little bitty dogs, they just don't really get credit," Booker's grandma Denise Long told the Loveland Daily Reporter-Herald.

what makes u think that?
Because the story as it was posted last yeaqr had grandma saying her little dog was bitten by a rattlesnake and somehow survived even though they never took it to the vet. Not likely. Add to that her statement that "These little dogs don't get enough credit" seemed to indicate she had an agenda. Finally, their's no proof it happened whatsoever other than grandma's word.

I heard the Secret Service is going to use Chihuahuas in Presidential detail. I understand they also take bullets to protect.
