Chihuahua pees on backpack, causes NY bomb scare


Didja hear the one about the Chihuahua and the bomb scare? The Seattle Times did. See, there was this little dog who peed on someone's backpack during a bus ride. Can you blame him? He was just a tiny thing with a tinier bladder on a long ride on a big bus.

The backpack's owner was a 19-year-old named Melvin who was on his way to a New York courthouse. He stashed his peed-upon backpack in some nearby bushes while he was inside, but oops! A sharp-eyed retired cop spotted the bag and called security.

Stop me if you've heard this one before.

So anyway...

The bomb squad was ultimately called in. Officers used a robot to determine that the bag didn't contain anything harmful.

Melvin got off with a warning. The Chihuahua probably got off with a scritch under the chin and a Snausage.

The only loser was the backpack.
