    Taco Bell Dog Passes Away-RIP Gidget

    She charmed millions without ever saying a word and managed to make fast-food tacos adorable. Gidget, the Chihuahua best known for her Taco Bell ad campaign (and her famous overdubbed tagline, "Yo quiero Taco Bell"), died from a stroke on Tuesday night at age 15.

    Thanks for the video SuziQ,

    Brings back memories from when my boy's were young and just loved to watch the commercial's. They would say Mom, the Taco Bell dog is on! Their friends who came over would imitate parts of the commercial. One Halloween, a friend of the boys, wore a home-made Taco Bell dog costume.

    I'm going to show them the video you posted when they come home!

    RIP, Gidget.

    I thought she was precious and loved the commercials.

    Awww....Gidget charmed many into patronizing Taco Bell and loving Chihuahuas! Which is how I came about aquiring my dear 11 year old chi-jack russell mix. (I couldn't afford a purebred) I now have a chi-pom mix too. My home is a halfway house for wayward half chihuahuas!

    RIP Dear Gidget. You made a wonderfully happy impact on society!
    ...and be sure your sin will find you out.

    Gidget made me fall in love with Chihuahuas as well. I have a Chorkie (Chihuahua and Yorkie).

    Hahaha! I love it! Mine are the smartest dogs I've ever had, especially the Chijack. My Chipom is very loving, yet feisty! Woe be unto anyone who darkens this door.......

    Mine doesn't have a clue how little he is, he picks on my half lab half Rhodesian Ridgeback. Good thing the big dog is a wimp.

    RIP Gidget- You made me fall in love with you. You were one of the most charming dogs I have ever seen.

    I loved this little Chihuahua. I think everyone adored you.

    So sad.


    You will be missed by all animal lovers...

    RIP Gidget. I once had a Chihuaha named Judy who looked like her and knew several chihuahas named Taco after these commercials came out.
