As unlikely couples go, these two are right up there.

Fifi the Chihuahua and Bashar the python have become firm friends after being brought together by their professional belly-dancer owner.

Paula Staunton, 48, already had nine-year-old Fifi when she adopted Bashar and another python called Xena, to use in her performances.

She hoped they would get on, but nothing prepared her for the close friendship the two have developed.

One day Bashar will realise that there's something bigger and tastier than a measly mouse.... then BAM! Fifi is gone.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Methinks the python is lulling the chihuahua into a false sense of security and keeping some "food" in reserve for a rainy day.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

Yeah, pets or not, a python is a wild snake with feeding instincts.

I think a time will come when the python is extra hungry(they DO grow) and the poor dog will be it's meal.

SHAME on the owners for allowing such a relationship. There is a VERY clear danger here for the dog.

I wonder if animal control could step in and seperate the two before something, inevitably, bad happens.

I have to agree, the second the snake is big enough...the dog will be toast.

Dog? Less than a rat to me.

When that poor snake eats that horrible excuse of any justifiable creature I hope she doesn't mutilate it.
