July 23, 2009 — Santa Monica, CA. The reporters here at Thank God For the Internet know Americans are still struggling to cope with the loss of some of the country’s most loveable people. In the past few weeks alone, Americans have suffered through the passing of Ed McMahon, Farah Fawcett, Steve McNair, Walter Cronkite, and Michael Jackson to name a few. But late Tuesday night, the country suffered another devastating blow.
Gidget, best known as the Taco Bell dog, died of a stroke at the age of 15, which is approximately 85-years-old to us humans. We hope you’ll observe a moment of silence in Gidget’s honor – she was a good girl. We leave you with this classic commercial, which clearly show’s how talented the loveable pooch was. The world has lost another hero. Rest in peace, little buddy.
