It’s day 2 of Pet Week – a week-long celebration of JoeyBear turning 2! Today we talk about movies featuring dogs I loved growing up!!



Admittedly, I don’t remember much from the classic movie but I remember falling in love with this collie! Definitely need to re-watch this! Also, look at how cute Michelle Williams was a… lass!


In the original 7 Lassie films, a collie named Pal played the lead. Apparently for the TV series, they kept it in the family and cast Pal’s descendants to play Lassie!

Milo from The Mask is so iconic!! Isn’t he the cutest wearing the mask?!?!?!!?!?! Jack Russells are so adorable, my friend Cholo has one named Pogo and he jumps VERY high!!



Beethoven got so famous, it spawned 6 sequels!! I remember the hamburger-eating contest in Beethoven 2!! Hahaha!



Petey is the American Pitt Bull Terrier part of the He-Man Woman Haters Club from one my favorite movies, The Little Rascals which celebrated its 20th anniversary just recently!

Hachiko is known as the most loyal dog ever. He is an Akita from Japan and though I haven’t seen the original Japanese movie, I did watch and cry my heart out while watching the American one starring Richard Gere.

During his owner’s life, Hachikō greeted him at the end of each day at the nearby Shibuya Station. The pair continued their daily routine until May 1925, when Professor Ueno did not return. The professor had suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and died, never returning to the train station where Hachikō was waiting. Each day for the next nine years Hachikō awaited Ueno’s return, appearing precisely when the train was due at the station. (via Wikipedia)

They put up a shrine for him in Shibuya station and I visited it when I went to Japan!♥ Please try to un-see my tiyan in this pic.


Lady and The Tramp


Ah, the classic poor boy – rich girl love story retold in a dog setting. Who can forget the famous spaghetti scene?!

Slinky Dog


Toy Story’s resident dog… toy! He’s a dachshund – very apt for a slinky toy because they’re very long dogs! We used to have a beautiful long-haired dachshund named Coolie who died a few months after my dad passed away :( My BFF Candy has a short-haired one named Schublig Bunless and is very very cute as well!!



Zero is the most adorable ghost dog with his glowing pumpkin nose, very much patterned after Rudolph. He is owned by The Nightmare Before Christmas’ Jack Skellington!

Note: I refuse to watch Marley and Me because I don’t think my heart can handle it. Who are your favorite movie dogs?

    Hachiko is definitely my top fave. I also like wishbone, he’s from a tv series, tho : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAs7sH2d_6I
    so sweet of you doing something like this for your fur baby, hope you wont neglect joey once you get married and have kids on your own, because you know, priorities will definitely change, that’s my first thought when you announced you’re engaged. hehe!

      Yeah I feel like I’m the only person who didn’t watch Wishbone. Omg that title though!!! Bark To The Future! I am so stealing that. Hahahahaa! OMG OF COURSE NOT. I am delaying having children BECAUSE of my bear! Hahaha! Well, not really. I just feel like I’m in no hurry to have kids because I seriously see Joey as our first baby. Don’t worry about it ;)

      My family attended the premiere for that movie when I was a very little girl. They kept announcing they were having technical difficulties and after an hour we decided to leave nalang cos it was getting too late for the kids hahaha so it’s always been an inside joke for the family cos sobrang flop ng Airbud premiere na yun!! So, there, I haven’t seen it yet. Haha!

    My favorite dog is Patrasche from A Dog of Flanders, I’m not sure through kung naging movie sya basta I just remember na pinapanood ko ang Tagalog Tv series nya noon with my late lolo. Sobra nakakaiyak rin like Marley & me :(

    Hi Saab! I loved Hachiko, and The Tale of Mari and the Three Puppies. Super heartbreaking but it made me love my dog more. =)

      I haven’t seen The Tale of Mari and The Three Puppies. If it involves a dog’s death ayoko panoorin!! :(

    Marley and me. Super nakakaiyak sya pero worth it yung luha mo eh. Its amazing how human loves their dog so much that dogs sense it and love their human in return!!
