Yup, we're in love. Meet Yogurt the Pirate Dog, a female Chihuahua that's one eyeful of happiness. This sweet pup has taken Instagram by storm, giving our favorite kitties stiff competition on the total cuteness factor. If you haven't had a chance to meet this special pup, here's an introduction to the adorableness.
Here's a seriously cute Chihuahua (and his owner) doing a bit of yoga together on a sunny afternoon. Yes, we love that he's speaking Italian and it sounds wonderful, but the little pooch steals this short with his version of doga. Watch the sweet video, which may inspire you to take a yoga class — and bring your pup along, too.
There are so many lil pups at shelters in the Bay Area that staffers have to take matters into their own hands and find other locations to hold the pooches. One Oakland shelter plans to charter a plane to airlift tiny pups to other states where they'll be more likely find homes (like that T'giving mission) and volunteers there have already driven over 100 Chihuahuas to shelters in Oregon, Washington, and Arizona.
Why all the extra effort? Well, bitty dogs are still in demand for many regions, and it's better to place as many pound puppies in happy houses, no matter the state. Are you surprised to see this breed pass pitties on the commonly found list?

Hola, Papi! The loveable, rescued star of the original movie is back on set to film Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2! I can only guess what trouble the tiny pups will nearly escape from (fingers and paws crossed) this time, but I'm willing to bet there still won't be any scrimping in the fashion department.As you may remember, even though the other main canine stars like Chloe and Delgado had many furry understudies, just one pooch — real name, Rusco — played Papi who found a new friend and forever home with one of the flick's trainers.

Someone's a big brother — and it's Heart-Kun! Check out this new puppy born to the same parents in an awww-dorable slideshow!
Arguably one of the most recognizable commercial celebripups, she's best known for a voice that's not her own. The infamous male voiceover of "Yo Quiero Taco Bell" starred none other than the female Gidget, whose huge ears and bright eyes charmed a country in the late '90s, despite the controversial ad campaign itself.
Now, sadly, PeoplePets.com reports that the 15-year-old Chihuahua suffered a stroke on Tuesday night and lives no more. Although Gidget was "mostly retired," she would still accompany her trainer, Sue Chipperton, as recently as a February "Hollywood Animals" shoot for People:
Gidget's happy to sleep for 23 hours and 45 minutes a day. She'll lay outside when it's 105 degrees. I like to joke it's like looking after a plant.
Seems like she lived a happy life right up to the end, just relaxing and hiking but her alert expression always knew where the camera was — rest in peace, little superstar!
Yup, that's the real name of this adoro puppy who it literally pains me to look at. Seriously though, Savvy must think I'm ill from my gasps and moans over here.
I've got a soft spot for all baby animals, and this lil guy happened to pop out smaller than his siblings in Scotland. Thought to be one of the smallest dogs ever born in the UK, Tom Thumb is just two inches short – make that long – of a world record. At only three weeks old, if he stays this small in coming months, who knows where the title will go . . .
Since the passing of Loki last week, Mickey's remembered his beloved Chihuahua with a special charm necklace. We've heard him talk about how much he loves his many animals and now we're seeing another pal come out to play.
Meet Jaws, his latest partner in crime – they're on the road again! This white Chihuahua got his name because, when Mickey rescued the pup and went in for a kiss, the dog gave him two stitches in the face. He took him anyway saying, "You gotta give 'em hope."
Aww, I'm glad to see Mickey bringing one of his other favorites along for the ride and wish we could catch more glimpses of all of them. Sadly, most airlines have a one-pet-per-passenger rule for in-cabin travel but I'm betting and hoping we'll see much more of this Chihuahua.

Although Loki couldn't walk the red carpet since Mickey Rourke's beloved Chihuahua passed away last week, I did spot a familiar face on that necklace.
Seems not only does he keep this pup close to his heart, he wears her face on a charm around his neck. Since he didn't pick up a golden statue last night, I also noticed his necklace at the weekend's Independent Spirit Awards, when he nearly teared up mentioning his "baby."
