    Gidget is dead... RIP

    Gidget, the famed Chihuahua who appeared in Taco Bell ads, died Tuesday at the age of 15.



    Karen McElhatton, Gidget's owner, tells Usmagazine.com the dog was with her trainer, Sue Chipperton, watching television when she began making "strange noises" and suffered a stroke.

    Before the dog's death, "She had a good day and was running around as normal," McElhatton tells Usmagazine.com. "We're happy that she was very well off right until the end."

    Gidget -- whose "Yo Quiero Taco Bell" spots debuted in September 1997 -- also had a cameo in Legally Blonde 2, in addition to appearing in other TV spots.

    We enjoyed working with Gidget, and she will be missed by many," a Taco Bell spokesperson tells Us in a statement. "Our deepest sympathies go out to her owners and fans."

    The dog had an exceptionally happy life, her owner says.

    "She lived like a queen," McElhatton tells Us. "She had a great life. We're very sad. She's a wonderful little dog."

    McElhatton tells Us the dog will likely be cremated.

    Adds McElhatton: "She was old. Of course, we were hoping she'd be around for a few more years, but if you have a dog that lives that long, you can't really complain."
    "Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack. -- Gen. George S. Patton

    One very special "Gidget Chalupa" will be made in her memory...

    Amen. Couldn't have said it better, my friend.

    RIP Gidget.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Now that was a movie that belongs in the "horror" thread. And to think, it was a made for tv movie!

    No, I had that thought too, and was wondering why there wasn't more replies (when I first saw the thread, I think there was one)!
