Being a spoiled, pampered lap dog is a pretty good life, but what happens when a celeb Chihuahua is dognapped? Kidzworld gets our paws dirty with Beverly Hills Chihuahua.

Dog’s Life Deluxe

Chloe (voiced by Drew Barrymore) is a spoiled rich Chihuahua who lives with her owner in posh Beverly Hills. Chloe gets pedicures, goes to the doggy spa, and wears a collar made of diamonds. Her life is pretty sweet, except for the pesky landscaper’s dog, a dirty, lower-class male Chihuahua named Papi who won’t leave Chloe alone to bask in the sun. When her mistress gets called away for work in Italy, and her regular dog nanny isn’t available, Chloe is left in the care of her owner’s niece, Rachel, who doesn’t care much about Chloe—or anyone but herself.

Perro Perdido!

When Rachel decides to take a trip to Mexico with some friends, she takes Chloe with her, leaving the little pooch in the room with some gross dog food from a can while she and her friends go dancing. Chloe makes a run for it, but before she knows what’s happening, she’s kidnapped for use in illegal dog fighting matches. At the fights she meets the German Shephard Delgado, who escapes and saves her when she’s set to fight against El Diablo—the meanest dog around. Realizing that this delicate doggie hasn’t ever had to fend for herself, Delgado reluctantly agrees to help Chloe get back to her life in Beverly Hills.

Tiny but Mighty

Meanwhile, Rachel has decided she has to get her act together and go find Chloe. At the same time, the landscaper, Sam, and his dog Papi find out Chloe is missing, and go to Mexico to try and help. While the three of them (and some stray dog friends) look for her, Chloe and Delgado are lost in the desert. They’re about to get attacked by some Mountain Lions when they’re saved by some very unlikely rescuers—let’s just say they look an awful lot like Chloe. But with El Diablo hot on their tail, and her owner due back to arrive any minute, the question is whether Chloe is tough enough to get out of this mess and realize what really matters, and whether the humans around her will figure things out in time!

The Bottom Line

Like most Disney movies about dogs, this one’s full of some great characters and moments. Beverly Hills Chihuahua is like Lady and the Tramp and 101 Dalmatians blended together—full of chases, escapes, and the struggles for dogs from different backgrounds to figure out who they really are and what they care about. It’s hard not to smile, laugh and cry along with Chloe and Delgado, and it’s also hard not to want a dog or five of your own once the movie’s done!

I can't believe no one's made a topic about this, or at least one that I've seen. It had some in tears, and it was all over the anime/cartoon/nerd world. For people who watch the Legend of Korra, what did you think about the finale? Are Korra and Asami and item? Do you think it adds up? One of the creators, Brian Konietzko, confirmed that Korrasami was canon. I just feel bad for Mako that both of his girlfriends ended up going for each other.
