Give Up the Chalupa for the Taco Bell Dog

Posted by Pixelhead

Yesterday on Twitter, I first heard that the beloved Taco Bell dog had passed…so sad..he or she was the primary reason I have devoured so many chalupas.

So in honor of the Taco Bell mascot, I thought I would offer up my dog Sugar(I decided to start calling her Taco..she doesn’t care as she is pretty deaf)as the new Taco Bell mascot.


What do you think, would you vote for Taco?

Sugar (Taco) seems like a really sweet dog- you sure you want her followed around by paparazzi and fed Mexican food? My senior beagle Charlie would try out, but spends most of his time snoozing! :-)

Taco’s very cute and all, but I think it might be too late for the Taco bell dog thing to return. We loved him/(her?) and I don’t think the world can withstand the heartbreak of possibly losing them again!

Or at least I can’t anyhow :)

It was pretty sad to hear about the taco bell dog. I mean it’s been with us for so long it seems weird to see it gone.

How funny… I think that Sugar could defiantly make the grade.

Paul, my daughter was away at camp, and was mad at me when she heard me calling her Taco….I might have to work on a better video..maybe I make one that makes her look like she is talking.

It could work. But I wouldn’t advice you to do anything your daughter doesn’t approve of. I remember my daughter had a goldfish she called Glub. As a surprise, I bought her another one and put it in the tank. When she cam back from school, she was furious. I couldn’t imagine why. Apparently, Glub did not like strangers!!!

Yes it was a sad day but I think Sugar is a lovely little dog and would be an apt replacement for the much missed Taco Bell dog.

That was quite a pledge you made there, but Sugar definitely didn’t seem interested in your proposition, and as for her going on a diet – Sorry, but I just can not see that! Very noble of you to offer though!

Ah yes the Taco Bell dog. I wonder if all those tacos he ate ended up hurting him. Could it be that fast food is not good for us?! I liked the dog and I’m sorry to see him go.

It is sad to hear of the passing of the Taco Bell dog. While your offer to replace it with your pooch is generous, I can’t see her being passed off as Gidget the Chihauhau. They will propably get a doppelganger Chihauhau or change their tack a bit. On the subject of fast food icons it would be nice if Ronald mcDonald could die off, won’t it…

Dodie, she is up for it too. I’ll have to post the video of Taco getting her teeth cleaned in preparation for her stardom.

It feels like something just went missing in the world when I heard about the passing of the Taco Bell Dog. I’m so glad you’ve stepped to the plate and offered up the perfect replacement(Sugar).

Kind of sad actually, both that it made me a little sad and that it seems that dog was some part of my childhood.

Taco’s got my vote. A word of advice: I fed my dog a burrito from Taco Bell once. I regretted it for 2 nights.

You have a really cute dog. Me , i am a shih tzu. Recently, i ate some bad treats and had very bad tummy pain n constipation. My sister another shih tzu ate the same treat from my mummy and she was admitted to the hospital for IV Fluid drip. The manufacturer wont take responsibility and cannot be bothered. We posted on a blog and hope to have as many comments from dog lovers to stop this manufacturer from killing more dogs like us. Pls view this blog http://www.dogpetgroomingsupplies.com/pet-bonding-with-owner/watch-your-pets-treats
and leave some comments. TQ

Awww too sad.
I love dogs a lot, Sugar must be replaced to be the mascot.
I think she’ll love it. I certainly vote Taco for sure.

I know years ago the taco bell advertising strategy was the little chihuahua, what ever happened to that? Surely if the dog died, they would have been able to find a perfect match to replace it, right?

I would definitely vote for your little girl as the taco bell dog! What a cutie! And she can sing– that gives her extra points! :)
