It's disturbing to look at it directly.

The Doberhuahua. SLYT Pepsi Blue. Likely you'll forget the product inside of two minutes.

Who approved that weird, weird ad for that particular product? Weird.

Is this the superbowl ad thread? This year's Clydesdale commercial (although I think there might be another one as well).

That doesn't make me want to buy an Audi, it makes me cry for Mendel.

True story: someone I worked with back in high school had a chihuahua and her daughter had a great dane, and they somehow managed to get the two to breed with each other and they had a bunch of medium dane puppies.

You remember that scene from The Mask when the dog puts the mask on? That's what this reminded me of.

SLYT Pepsi Blue

Come on. Seriously?

Of course, what would really happen is you would just have a really, really, really nervous medium sized dog. Or, you know. A Min Pin.

I approve of that weird, weird ad. Fuck the product.

It acts like my Chion.

Nasty little bastard until he decides he likes you. When my wife and I went to see him at the shelter the lady handling the visitation was like: "Now, he may be a bit tense and try and snap - are you okay with this?"

My wife most certainly was since she fell in life with his damnable squirrel ears. (Hard to see in this picture - http://i.imgur.com/N2xHY3k.jpg)

We still joke though whenever he's in full attack mode - "Are you sure you want to see him? He may go back in time and kill your family"

YOU HAVE A CHIHUAHUA LION?

Oh god no.. then he would be lazy and not attack anything!

He's a demon Chihuahua Papillon Time Travelling Contract Killer. Don't let the picture fool you - he was in pain that day and on medicine. Don't let his ability to velcro snuggle in the middle night put you at ease. The second you let off your guard he'll be at your throat waiting for the command from unseen masters.

Do not look at the dog. Do not look at the dog park.

For the record, an actual Doberhuahua looks like this.

True fact: directly quoting Scrappy Doo is listed as a crime against humanity.

Sarah Maclachlan's cameo completely makes up for every time I've had to look away from that damned cruelty commercial.

Somehow I'm reminded of Mars Attacks.

I want to see the chihuadober.
posted by mule98J at 11:28 AM on January 30


Tragically, chihuadober's heads tend to easily explode when their heart rates go up since the rest of their arteries are full-sized and only the head is miniature.

I want to see the chihuadober.

I have met a dachsundober. Which mixed the worst of both breeds, temperament wise.

And, it would seem, involved either a ramp, a ditch or a crane in the production.

Speak for yourself, snooty pants. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I'm sure it would go down fine in the UK (or a slightly culturally retuned version)

I actually was considering adding "...and therefore snooty about this kind of thing." But then I had to stop goofing off on the internets.

I once met a dog that was a chihuahua crossed with a pit bull. It basically looked like a puppy pitbull but was full grown. Nice dog.

I'm sure somewhere out there is a chinupacabra cross that is just as cute as these and just as evil.
(never knew a chihuahua that didn't pee on the floor at one time or another)

Growing up I had a Chihuahua-Labrador mix dog. He was black, about the size of a Beagle, with floppy ears, a thick water-repellent coat, a rounded head, and big worried eyes.

The Lab side made him horribly ashamed whenever his Chihuahua side snarled at horses or ate the garbage.
