your winners, lollipop and yum yum as santa and mrs. claus!
congratulations to lollipop and yum yum’s mommy teresa costanzo from highland mills, new york! we are thrilled to inform her that lollipop and yum yum’s christmas picture was the favorite in our voting poll for the 2013 famous chihuahua christmas picture contest!
what makes lollipop and yum yum’s christmas picture so special?
the outfits and display for this photo was done for a rescue charity event and were hand made by teresa! teresa is a huge supporter of rescue charities and has a wonderful facebook page that promotes animal rescue and features lollipop and yum yum wearing cute chihuahua clothes!
and get this, lollipop is a rescue chihuahua! she was found abandoned at a construction site in texas and when her previous owners were contacted, they told the vet to put her down as they didn’t want to pay for the double hernia surgery she needed. the charity that rescued lollipop decided to run a fundraiser on facebook and raised the money for her surgery. after her recovery, they posted her adoption picture and teresa fell in love with little lollipop at first glance! she knew she just had to have her … and the rest is history!
both lollipop and yum yum bring such joy and happiness into teresa’s life and the lives of all their facebook fans. their adorable pictures always bring cheer to everyone who views them, not to mention the fact that they are so dang cute, you just can’t help but fall in love with them!
nonetheless, when it comes right down to it, these two little darlings are on a mission to fund raise as much as possible to help animals in need. all the events they attend promote and help animal rescue and for this, we applaud teresa for doing such an incredible job of making a difference in this world filled with economic hardship and animal neglect.
