The little chihuahua was getting nervous. The older, bigger dogs were starting to bark and people were beginning to notice. She wanted to do something but, not being very smart, didn't know what, so she started hiding in her office, coming out only when absolutely necessary. (Like when she needed the fire hydrant.)
Chihuahua knew she needed help. She hired a whole bunch of little dogs to work for her, dogs who pledged eternal loyalty. They took her side and her word. They did her bidding. They kept her safe a little longer.
