This chihuahua living under the staircase like Harry Potter has become internet famous
There are many reasons to be jealous of Harry Potter, but being forced to live in a cupboard under the stairs in his aunt and uncle’s house is not one of them. However, if Harry’s staircase bedroom looked anything like the one a retired teacher in Georgia built for her chihuahua, I would be so down.
Betty McCall from Rochelle, Georgia adores her 4-year-old chihuahua, Poncho, so much that she gave him his very own bedroom. The tiny room is located under the stairs and includes a tiny brass bed, a tiny dog painting, and a tiny dresser for all of Poncho’s tiny belongings. McCall’s nephew, Will Rigdon, discovered the bedroom under the stairs during a holiday visit and posted photos of Poncho’s little Harry Potter-style palace on Imgur.
The gallery has since gone viral and has been viewed over 195K times. McCall was interviewed by Buzzfeed, and told them that Poncho “gets nervous and snippy” around company and loud noises, so he often escapes to his room. And he even sleeps there at night.
McCall even said that the room is small enough to keep Poncho comfortable but big enough for her to get in there and clean and vacuum.
Does this mean Poncho is destined for amazing and magical things? Maybe, and maybe not, but he’s a dog who has his own bedroom, so he clearly has it made already. Way to be, Poncho.
