64. ironic, because a few years ago, i distinctly remember
an NPR story on how huge the boom was on Chihuahua breeding in California...There were actually small-scale farmers ditching their crops and building kennels because the Paris Hilton boom had pushed prices to the moon...

A few years later, we are seeing the residual effects of overbreeding and flooding the market...
