San Diego woman strips to bikini to look for her chihuahua

Refuses to dress till she finds her Chispita

Build a business case: developing custom apps

A San Diego woman has done absolutely nothing for her hopes of finding her beloved chihuahua after pledging to strip and stay stripped until the mislaid canine is found.

Arlene Mossa Corona spent yesterday morning in a white bikini top and purple bottoms parading round the intersection of La Jolla Village Drive and Gensee Avenue in San Diego yesterday. All the while she was waving a placard with a picture of her little Chispita.

Her Chispita is so precious to her, MSNBC reports, that she has said she is prepared to miss her family Thanksgiving to continue displaying the placard.

The University of California San Diego student also said she would not eat until her chihuahua turns up. Which is worrying, as the bikini makes it clear she doesn't have a whole lot to fall back on.

Local TV paid tribute to her efforts, particularly in the "chilly" 50 degree weather.

Corona was driven to desperate measures after trying all the usual channels – ie, calling the dog pound, and then employing a pet psychic.

She said that a maintenance worker at her apartment complex thought he had seen a "girl" take the lost chihuahua.

Corona speculated that the dog-napper may be too scared to return it – as if there's anything remotely worrying about a woman who employs a pet psychic and parades in her scanties at a busy intersection. ®
