University City Bikini Lady Reunited with Her Missing Dog

Some commuters who drive in the University City and La Jolla area may be crestfallen to learn that the bikini-wearing lady who was waving signs last week has found her dog. Someone dropped off Arlene Corona's chihuahua, Chipy, at the animal shelter on November 30.

Corona reportedly occupied the intersection of La Jolla Village Drive and Genesee Avenue for six days. Last week she told Fox News, "I'm willing to stand and freeze and starve outside in my bathing suit from 8 a.m. to, like, 6 p.m. every day until I get [the dog] back.”

ABC News and Inside Edition are among the national media outlets that reported Corona’s story. A November 24 report on twolittlecavaliers.com mentioned that Corona had gone to a pet psychic before taking to the street. The website also featured a prominent picture of her standing on the median of the intersection holding a sign.

Corona, a UCSD student, started her intersection campaign the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and gave up celebrating with her family.

It was first reported that a maintenance worker said he saw a girl snatch the dog at Corona's nearby La Jolla apartment building and that it was an eighth-grader who turned it in to the animal shelter.

As this story was being posted, ABC News was reporting that a high school student convinced a school nurse to turn in the dog.

I suppose for those ladies who may not have the best figure to flaunt along the roadside, this might work:

Hold a sign alongside the busy street that promises:

"WILL NOT WEAR MY BIKINI, IF MY DOG IS RETURNED!"

Dec. 2, 2011

I am so glad her dog was returned, these are family members for many of us.....if a school nurse pilfered the little Chi then she should be fired....

Dec. 2, 2011

I don't think it was the nurse that stole the dog. I think it was the high school kid who probably confessed the crime to the nurse at school and the thieving student asked the nurse to turn the dog in for her. I have to hand it to that bikini lady-what she did took a lot of nerve, chutzpah, and got her the results she wanted-her dog back!

Dec. 3, 2011

I don't think the girl was trying to find her dog so much as she was using her missing dog to show off her body in hopes that fame would find her....and to a certain degree, it worked. She got her 15 minutes. I don't think we've seen all we will of the hottie and/or her warm, furry, pet.

Dec. 3, 2011

You think she is a hottie???? Hmmmmm.

Dec. 3, 2011

the dog certainly was pupster!!...hahahahaha :-O)

Dec. 3, 2011

Oh, that little Chi was a hottie nan! I agree 100%.

I love all dogs......

Dec. 4, 2011

I take that last comment to mean that perhaps the bikini lady may well really be just auditioning for a role in an adult film? Maybe, but she should try and finish her studies at UCSD first! Even though there are no good jobs out there, her talent at self-promotion could land her a XXX starring role in the next "Have You Seen My Chippy?" Or "Commuter's Cutie."

Dec. 4, 2011

Oh, I think she will get picked up by a marketing firm that recognizes someone with a talent for getting attention on the product, and devising a way to get the public to work for you. You have to hand it to her--her method worked! She knew how to work it.

Karen says: That's awesome! Yay for her.
