    We have recently had a lot of people die on the news lately, but one thing many have probably overlooked is the death of a fine mascot

    I used to make jokes about the Taco Bell dog, but I take it all back now. It doesn't say there but he passed away yesterday, on the 22 of July, 2009.

    Strokes are quite common in dogs and he was old 15 years is quite old for most small dogs. Rest In Peace my friend you deserve it.

    No man, that dog was a legend. But that's what I'd expect to see from someone who's never seen the commercial or had a pet before.

    Still even though it was a dog it was also an icon.

    Actually I didn't want it to sound that bad but it just kinda rhymed.
    But anyways, does the fact that it is an animal lessen the sadness to people(I'm not sad, we don't even have Taco Bells here!) than if it was a person?
    Even if it was just a tool?
    AND WTF @ the spoiler tag. [​IMG]

    he only had the spotlight for a short time anyway

    Nah, not really. Sad though. I loved that little dog. R.I.P. little dude.

    Speaking of Taco Bell... I want to try wolfing down a Hot Volcano Taco AND Burrito consecuitively.

    Whoever loves the Bacon and Potato Burrito say I LOVE THE BACON AND POTATO BURRITO +1!

    I LOVE THE BACON AND POTATO BURRITO +1!

    Well I can't really grieve for pets since its not really a whole big thing. So RIP TB mutt. I wonder how Inuyasha is taking all of this since he's a temper youknow.
