Ah Chee Wawa! Chihuahua Fever Hits Hollywood

Ah Chee Wawa!

These little dogs have come a long way from first hitting it big as the famous face for Taco Bell. Since than these pups have been stealing the hearts of animal lovers everywhere with their tini tiny features and large personalities.

On October 3, 2008, these pocket pooches will be taking the next big step towards worldwide dog domination with the Disney film Beverly Hills Chihuahua. With names like Drew Barrymore, Andy Garcia and George Lopez lending their vocals to these part animal part digitally generated pups, this film is sure to bring in packs of pup loving fans.

I am on the ropes regarding the storyline. This film does not follow the life of a normal house pet, instead you tag along with Chloe who is a pampered Chihuahua from Beverly Hills who somehow finds herself in the mean streets of Mexico.

Is it believable? I live an hour away from Hollywood and while it's not far from the truth (I have witnessed dressed up pups being rolled down the streets in strollers), the film definitely will appeal to Disney's younger viewers.
