Singing Sensation and Pop Diva Mariah Carey has announced that she will become a proud mother this week of a new breed of dog. The multimillion selling artist has broken with tradition and asked for the help of genetic engineers to create the unique pooch. The dog which is a genetically modified cross breed of a chihuahua and a common English garden vole measures four inches from head to tail and is 95% blind. It is currently finishing its final stages of development in a test tube in San Diego, California.
Dr Evelyn Longlegs Chief of Bioscience at BioAnimals Inc. feels that this new breed of dog named 'The Mariah' will revolutionise household animals. "This darling little animal is a marvel. It is self sufficient and makes no back door mess, it is the perfect companion for any super celebrity with a busy schedule and it fits right into your purse." claims the scientist.
It is unknown whether this breed of animal will be mass produced for sale to the general public in time for the holiday season. "I feel that thousands of children would benefit fro this revolutionary animal. they can have the responsibility of owning a pet without actually having to do anything for it." explains Chris Kris of Petworld USA. "It would be a terrible shame if the animal was not available in stores by christmas."
With a selling price of $2bn 'The Mariah' is expected to be a pet of the elite and it has been rumoured that Bill Gates, The Queen of England, Pope Benedict and The Olsen Twin on the Left have all ordered one.
Mariah Carey refused to comment, however a statement was released from her recording label. "Mariah is delighted that she will be the first owner of her namesake animal. She's just ecstatic about it and couldn't be any happier or pleased with the situation. It's such a reward to her for her recent charity work in Africa." revealed Linzi Lenzo. However top brasses in congress are said to be concerned as it is rumoured that the dog can induce hallucinogenic effects if licked, which may infringe drug legislation
The music industry is bracing itself for Mariah's forthcoming album ‘Hot Box', which is believed to be entirely dedicated to the little guy. We look forward to its arrival.
