Gidget, Taco Bell Chihuahua, dies

tacobellchihauhuaAnother beloved celebrity gone.

The cruel summer of death marches on, this time claiming a beloved star of the small screen. Gidget, the Taco Bell Chihuahua, died from a stroke on Tuesday night in Los Angeles. She was 15 (105 in dog years.)

“She made so many people happy,” said Gidget’s trainer, Sue Chipperton.

According to People Magazine:

The mostly retired actor lived out her days laying in the sun – “I like to joke that it’s like looking after a plant,” says Chipperton – and entertaining at shoots when her trainer brought her along. “Gidget,” says Chipperton, “always knew where the camera was.”

  1. While i never got to meet dear Gidget, I did get to work on a Taco Bell commercial with a Godzilla tie-in in 1998. Ask me to do my Roland Emmerich imitation of the Taco Bell dog (voice) someday…

  2. I didn’t catch the tabloids lately. Did they run front page headlines about “Gigdet’s Brave Last Days” or “Gidget’s Brave Battle?”

  3. I just heard a story on NPR that said Gidget was euthanized! How could People leave that out?! Something to hide, Taco Bell??? I expect an entire hour about this on Larry King tonight.

  4. So when is the memorial at Staples?

    You know, if we got all the Chihuahua owners in LA to join in, we’d have almost as many as MJ :)

    reg & loki (yeah, he’s a wawa, but he’s from the shelter not a pet store:)
