Virgin America's Operation Chihuahua is a Silly but Good Idea

Remember that little dog craze? Oh ya, it is still going on. I never got it, but evidently everyone else in the world did. But now there are too many little dogs, and not enough homes. Enter Operation Chihuahua.

Teaming with Virgin America, various animal rescue programs aim to decrease the substantial chihuahua population on the West coast by flying them to new homes on the East coast. The animals participating in Operation Chihuahua will have the bill footed by the airline. The idea of an airplane filled with chihuahuas is almost too much for me to take.
