WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) – Two cute chihuahuas, a motorcycle, and a popular social media app; that’s what it took for a couple of Wichita dogs to amass a worldwide following.
For two small dog’s Mama and Butters know how to make an entrance as they get around in style for millions to see on their social media on their bikes.
Jesus Carrasco, Mama and Butters owner, said boredom from being cooped up during the pandemic was how he came up with the idea.
Carrasco said, “Started off with the Jeep and they liked that, and then we went and got another bike after I sold my other one and this time I went with a Harley and they wanted to go, so we were like how do we get them to go with us. We just bought a harness and started with some cheap Amazon goggles.”
Momma and Butters now ride fully equipped with helmets.
He said, “The helmets come right off and luckily I’ve got lucky enough, they ended up fitting their snots, so some work did have to go into the helmets like putting another helmet in there and then creating a little nose shield, but yeah they fit.”
Carrasco also said it didn’t take much convincing to get the dogs to go along for the ride.
“Whenever I grab my bag like I did this morning. I was just like ‘you can go for a ride.’ He jumps in his bag already and ready to go and I just load her up and they’re excited. They go everywhere with us. We just had a newborn baby, so right now, they’re all starved for attention,” he said.
Jesus said he has to credit his girlfriend for the following they have acquired.
“My girlfriend’s idea. A lot of this actually was her idea of her. When we got our first 50k, we were like, wow, that was just crazy. TikTok has kind of been a lot of fun,” said Carrasco.
The two are getting millions of views worldwide, but they’ve also got plenty of fans with their little helmets here in Wichita.
Carrasco said, “We usually try to stop for some people if they have kids and let them pet them.”

Carrasco said he’s looking to involve more of his family in the videos as they continue to grow this adventure.
