So said the mayor of Saskatoon, Don Atchison. With those words, the city of Saskatoon went on to ban annoying little dogs.
From The Lapine:
While bans on pitbulls are increasingly common, Saskatoon has become the first city in the world to ban dogs under 5 pounds (2.27 kg) because they are “noisy, annoying and not really dogs.”
In a split-vote decision, City Council passed the by-law to shut the city gates to a long list of dogs that are commonly referred to as “Purse Dogs” because they fit in a handbag…
The usual suspect is of course being blamed for the proliferation of SLYDs:
Heiress Paris Hilton is discredited with making “Purse Dogs” a fashion must for twentysomething A-listers, being photographed thousands of times with miniature pooches peeking out of her name-brand bags. TMZ Celebrity News ran seven clips (December 15, 2012) of Hilton being unable to remember the name of her Purse Dog, and it is reported she leases the Teacup Rescue Doggettes by the half dozen….
Visitors to Saskatoon will be allowed to bring their “dog” as long as they have obtained a “Undersized Canine Temporary License.”
