Agency Euthanizes Ellen's Dog Out Of Spite
Distant cousins?

PASADENA (CAP) - Mutts and Moms, the pet adoption agency that got into a very public spat with talk show host Ellen Degeneres over a dog Degeneres adopted and then gave to her hairdresser, has had the dog euthanized "to show Ellen she's not the boss of us," said Mutts and Moms proprietor Melena Butkis.

"Ellen thinks just because she's famous she can go giving away dogs willy nilly to whomever she wants," said Butkis. "Today it's her hairdresser, tomorrow she's turning them over to crack whores." Crack whores make notoriously poor pet owners, noted Butkis.

Mutts and Moms has come under fire for its stringent adoption policies and for removing the dog, "Iggy," forcibly from his new home as his new owners, including an 11- and a 12-year-old girl, watched in horror. But it was for Iggy's own good, says Butkis. "I'm fairly sure they were going to eat him," she said.

Ellen took to the airwaves to plead her case, leading to several threats against Butkis and her business. That's when Butkis decided to destroy the dog.

"It's unfortunate it had to come to this, but it's all Ellen's fault," said Butkis. "When you come right down to it, it's like she's the one who gave Iggy that lethal injection. Although I'm the one who actually got to do it, so it's sort of a win-win."

When reached for comment, Ellen could not be understood through her inconsolable sobs, which were being filmed for later broadcast. But her wife, Portia de Rossi, pledged to head down to Mutts and Moms with Melissa Etheridge and Sarah Gilbert and "kick some Mutts and Moms ass" while the Indigo Girls watch the door for cops.

Meanwhile, Carol Federman, president of the Ellen Fan Club, said her membership is livid and that Butkis will be fortunate to get off with just death threats. "She's lucky we haven't come down there with torches and pitchforks, like we do every Friday at Anne Heche's house," she said.

But Butkis remains resolute. "I'm sure I did the right thing," she said, noting that she'll kill as many animals as she has to in order to keep pets out of the hands of Ellen's hairdressers.

"I mean, look at Ellen's hair," she said. "Clearly this woman has terrible judgment."
