I think the only way it would be homicide is if someone put in poison or the wrong, thing, he was using. Was he taking pills? Maybe someone put in the wrong pill on purpose. Was it medicine? Then someone would put poison in it.

I don't believe it was a homicide.

Taco Bell Chihuahua Dies at age 15

Postby nightwheel » Thu Jul 23, 2009 2:27 am

Source: US Magazine
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."

Sad to hear that iconic dog has passed on. Gidget will be dearly missed.
Will have to come up with a new signature. Stargate Worlds was canceled a long time ago.

Ugh, this seems a bit random. Haven't heard about that dog in a few years, kind of a shame, but I kinda don't see the significance. She was pretty old as well, especially for a Chihuahua.

That's a pretty long time for a dog. Farewell to yet another pop culture icon.

Geez, what's with the celebrity deaths lately? And now a dog, too?

I remembered watching those ads while creating my 'Beverly Hills Ninja Cop Chiwhawhat' mash-up last year, she was adorable in those!

"Yoqueiro Taco Bell!"

RIP Gidget. :-(

So, for real this itme? =/ I've heard all the rumors at schools for years, but to hear it truly happened is depressing. (Yes, I realize I'm a bit late)

Aww, I hate it when actors with actual acting abilities die! I still can't forget Paul Newman. :cry:

Great actor, it's sad to see him go.

He did one of the voices for Alpha and Omega, so I guess that will be his last film.

I'll always remember him best for his role in Blue Velvet - in particular his impassioned Heineken condemnation.
