TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (7)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of the Associated Press via the San Francisco Chronicle (from Monday, March 28; link good at time of posting):
Mail carriers said they were recently unable to deliver mail to homes along a section of Guyer Street in [Hobart, Indiana] because of a 4.5-pound Chihuahua named Bobo.

"The little Chihuahua was 10-foot tall when he was on the street," said Florence Page of the Hobart Humane Society, which picked up the dog twice for running loose. "It's kind of comical, you know, but after a while it's not any more."

. . . .

Hobart police officer Ron Schalk said he had no option but to cite [the dog's owner] for allowing the dog to run loose.

"The biggest thing I was concerned with is there were a lot of residents that week who couldn't get their mail," he said. "The little Chihuahua was running around being aggressive and trying to bite people's ankles."
