The Dragees Hunter

The crocodile hunter aint got nothing on the … DRAGEES HUNTER!

After reading my monologue on the sad fate of endangered “silver balls” in California, K and her dog CoCo were on a mission to help this California native procure some extinct cupcake decor known by its scientific name – dragees.

CoCo’s mission impossible (should she chose to accept it) is comparable to a st. bernard in deep mountain snow with a brandy barrel strapped to his neck searching for lost travelers. Except CoCo is a 4 lb (we can’t confirm or deny this though since all women lie about their weight right?) chihuahua, that wouldn’t tolerate anything strapped to her neck, looking for an inanimate decorative sprinkle. Meh… same difference.

As the message via doggy treat disintegrated ie she ate it (hey thats how spy dogs roll so they don’t leave a paper trail duh?!) CoCo put on her hooded cammies and set off on her mission. Her keen sense of smell was what made her double 0 status and this mission was no different. Her rapidly vibrating nose lead her to the local market around the corner. As she kept her distance from market shoppers, hiding behind shelves, dodging shopping carts, she headed directly for the baking aisle. Imagine her surprise when the dragees shelf was empty. RUFF?? Coco exclaimed!

After 1 week of searching the mission was aborted (chihuahua’s got a union, who knew??) and the dragees are still no where to be found. Sources tell me that Tom Cruise is being recruited but his $20M going rate is a pretty steep price.

 Who will take on the mission next?

** No chihuahuas were hurt in the making of this entry.

  6. KRMWV, I agree a chihuahua kickback is definitely due but do you really wanna take on the “Chihuahua for their fair share of bones, baths and rub downs” union? I didn’t think so…
