A fond “adios” to the Taco Bell Chihuahua

tacobelldogGidget, the Chihuahua best known for her Taco Bell ad campaign, died from a stroke on Tuesday night at age 15.

“She made so many people happy,” Gidget’s trainer, Sue Chipperton, told  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,” said Chipperton – and entertaining at shoots when her trainer brought her along.

In addition to serving as Taco Bell’s spokesdog, Gidget had roles in a commercial for the ’90s edition of Trivial Pursuit and as Bruiser’s mom in Legally Blonde 2.

Chipperton said Gidget was a natural ham who enjoyed her time before the camera.

“One time, I kid you not, she actually pushed her stand-in out of the way because he was still there when she arrived on set,” Chipperton recalled. “Gidget always knew where the camera was.”

I am so sorry for your loss. I know what it is like to loose a loved one. I have a 1 year old chi and don’t know what I would do without her.
