It’s National Dog Day and we would like to take this opportunity to feature our new favorite dog, Dante. Dante is a Xolo dog that will appear in Disney•Pixar’s animated feature Coco when it comes to theaters on November 22. If you haven’t yet seen the trailer for Coco, you’re going to want to check that out ASAP, because it. Is. Gorgeous. You should also read more about the amazing voice cast and characters. But today, we are focusing on one character who has already stolen our hearts. Let us count the ways in which we love Dante:
Um, this is the cutest thing we’ve ever seen.
He’s obviously a good friend.
We can tell from the latest Coco trailer that Dante is the kind of pal that will stand by you no matter what.
Just look at that commitment. Dante isn’t afraid to take a leap, and go where most dogs wouldn’t wander. He’s on a mission to catch that bone and no one can stop him. Respect.
This is literally us anytime someone tries to take a bite of our food.
He makes us feel so happy.
Dominant emotions after seeing this adorable moment: joy, delight, wonder, cheer, gratitude.
Look at how adoringly he looks at Miguel in this moment. Hopeful and sincere; ready to follow Miguel anywhere. On that note …
He’s always up for an adventure.
The above delightful journey is called “Dante’s Lunch – A Short Tail,” which we were treated to earlier this year. We can’t wait to see more of Dante in Coco!
As an extra bonus on National Dog Day, take a look at the real Xolo dog who had a grand adventure on the Pixar campus:
BRB, going to cry tears of joy until further notice. It’s a great day to be a dog person. Happy National Dog Day!
