On June 2nd, the SF SPCA and 7x7 staged the second annual Whole Enchihuahua on a bright, blustery day in San Francisco's Dolores Park. The event brought together pet lovers, adoption agencies, and rescue groups to call attention to the mighty chihuahua—one of the breeds most in need of rescue.

Frida Kahlo and Other Dog Costume Awesomeness from The Whole Enchihuahua in Dolores Park

Lookin' good, SF chihuahuas! The contestants in this year's The Whole Enchihuahua dressed to the nines and strutted their stuff down the runway at Dolores Park last Sunday.

The winning costume went to Frida Kahlo (above). Her doggie unibrow is truly something else.

The Whole Enchihuahua: A Cinco de Mayo Chihuahua Party in Dolores Park This Sunday

You wouldn't know it from Taco Bell commercials and perezhilton.com, but California chihuahuas have hit some rough times. The Golden State has a massive overpopulation of chihuahuas, so much so that Virgin America has chartered flights of them out of California to New York for adoptions, where they're apparently in higher demand.

With Cinco de Mayo around the corner, 7x7 and the SF SPCA are doing what we can for the little guys by throwing them a party in Dolores Park this Sunday, May 1. We're calling it The Whole Enchihuahua because it's big time. We're talking a chihuahua meet-up and adoption booth,  a Cinco de Mayo-themed doggie costume contest, SF mariachi band Trio Sol de America and all your favorite Off the Grid food trucks.
