Ithink Mexican Chihuahua is a reference to a well-known urban legend.
The story usually is that a married couple goes down to Mexico on vacation,
and they find what appears to be a small stray dog.  They decide to make this
dog their pet, so they take it back to their home in the US.  They take it to
a vet for shots, but they are informed that this "Chihuahua" is actually a
very large rat.
