Every girls' choir needs a gang of guard dogs

Chihuahua in a basket

Chihuahua in the Piazza San Marco

A few weeks ago, Cheryl ran across three Chihuahas in baskets who were acting as guard dogs and mascots for a German school choir near the Rialto Bridge. While the girls sang, the dogs sat in their baskets, defending the purses, backpacks, and other items that the singers had piled up behind them during an impromptu arcade concert.

Below is a short video of the concert's highlights, with a cameo appearance by one of the Chihuahuas. (The dogs' names are Daisy, Dory, and Dusty, three monikers that alliterate with "Don't mess with me.")
