Famous Teacup Chihuahuas
Chihuahuas including the nowadays often searched for teacup chihuahuas have risen to fame on many occasions throughout history and modern times. Teacup chihuahuas have been on the big screen in movie theaters, on the laps of celebritys and as mascots for fastfood companies just to mention a few.
Lately, probably the first that comes to mind for many is Tinkerbell Hilton, the teacup chihuahua pet of Paris Hilton that even wrote her own diaries. She was bought originally from a greek breeder, reportedly for somewhere close to 4000 USD and went on to star in all three seasons of The Simple Life, the 30-minute TV reality show.
Another teacup chihuahua is Bruiser who made it to the big screen as the pet of Elle Wood, played by Reese Witherspoon, in the Legally Blond movies. Bruiser makes the trip from fashionable Beverly Hills to the university world of Harward Law School. The movie was released in july of 2001 and followed by a sequel two years laters where Bruiser again was on the movie cover and obviously starred in the film.
Teacup chihuahuas or at least chihuahuas in general have also made it into business big time. Chihuahuas are commonly associated with Mexico and so is fast food chain Taco Bell. So in the later part of the 1990s the Taco Bell Chihuahua Gidget hit the commercial world with a slam. In commercials for the company Gidgets speaks through special effects and goes ordering tacos. This character grew so popular that it spawned toy production and started a subculture of its own.
If we take the step from the real world to the cartoon one we find someone who resembles a teacup chihuahua, but sometimes it is hard to tell if he has the required size for a teacup chihuahua. Of course we are here talking about Ren Höek, the partner to Stimpson J Cat in the Ren and Stimpy lineup. The former is a somewhat neurotic character that often found ways to be not so nice to his fellow character causing parents to be critical about the whole series. Ren is often considered mexican and was originally inspired by a postcard of a chihuahua in a sweater.
Last, but definitely not least, we should mention Wheely Willy, the inspiring motivator. He is seemingly a little big to be a teacup chihua but he really deserves mention. Abonded and injured at early age he was not able to walk on his own until his new owner found him sort of wheelchair for his back legs and now he visits hospitals and has been the subject of two books bringing inspiration to the people he meets.
