Chihuahuas battling Great Danes is the cutest mismatch in history


Pick on someone your own size—or not.

Dogs, it must be admitted, have more important things to worry about than their relative size: chewables, hole-digging, and unusually pungent scents, to name but a few. So is it any wonder that we sometimes see squabbles between the very smallest and toweringly giant breeds?
