ever wonder how the popular “chihuahua song” originated?
the song “chihuahua” was recorded in 2002 by swiss artist dj bobo. it was the first single from his tenth album, visions, and was released in late 2002 and early 2003 in many countries.
it was his most successful single, topping the charts in france and switzerland and became one of the summer hits of the year. it is also known as dj bobo’s signature song.
most of us would be excited to see our best friend in a movie, but lynnie bunten has mixed feelings about beverly hills chihuahua.
“i’m looking forward to the movie, but I’m not looking forward to the result,” says bunten, head of breed rescue for the chihuahua club of america.
sadly, she speaks from experience. whenever a chihuahua has been featured in entertainment in the past, it’s been followed by a spike in the number given up by people who didn’t realize what they were getting into.
“chihuahuas shouldn’t be mistaken for people or celebrities”
it’s easy to fall in love with movie stars, especially when the stars are perfectly trained by professional handlers like the glitzy darlings in disney’s oct. 3 release.
remember, the dogs are playing roles. the real-life personalities of various breeds might not be what you expect. in the case of chihuahuas, don’t think laid-back lap dog just because they’re small. read the chihuahua breed standard carefully, particularly on temperament.
chihuahuas are feisty, independent and driven, but because they’re little, people treat them differently. that can mean trouble.
