Today, the clouds parted and delivered unto us this ray of pure joy: a litter of adoptable puppies named for Taco Bell dishes. My exact words to Takeout editor-in-chief Kevin Pang this morning: “If you don’t let me write about a dog named Fiesta Potatoes, I will quit this job.” So here we are.

Thank you, Oklahoma City’s KOCO News, for the best story to come across my desk in weeks. A few of the puppies have reportedly already been adopted, and I assume that the remaining dogs in Taco Belle’s litter—Gordita, Bellegrande, Cinnamon Twist, Crunchwrap, and Doritos Loco—will soon be headed to their forever homes, too.

Who wouldn’t want to wake up snuggling a Doritos Loco every morning?

Has anyone ever actually kept the name of a dog they adopted? Especially a puppy? I could see it if the dog was old enough to know its name well, but those puppies don’t recognize those names, so I would bet that almost all of them get their names changed by their new families.
