R.I.P. THE TACO BELL CHIHUAHUA
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.
“She made so many people happy,” says Gidget’s trainer, Sue Chipperton. PEOPLE met both Gidget and Sue at a Hollywood animals photo shoot in February, where the pup was a consummate pro and delighted the crew with her playful nature.
Yo quiero... one more day with her in our lives. **sob** But Gidget will live on! Both in our memories, and in one final selfless gesture to Taco Bell when her remains get ground up and added to a “beef” Burrito Supreme.
They also found her replacement his name is Diego check him out ...
