We love dogs. They’re kind of the best. Here are a few examples that prove our point.
1. Dug from Up
He’s loyal, brave, and—squirrel!
2. Nana from Peter Pan
She’ll tuck you in AND carry your tray of tea on her head. Even practically perfect Mary Poppins can’t do that. (We still love you, Mary!)
3. Maximus from Tangled
Ok, so Maximus is a horse. But according to the Tangled animators, he was modeled after a dog, and that’s good enough for us. Also, he’s willing to run an army in exchange for apples. So, that’s pretty cool.
4. Rowlf from The Muppets
He’s a dog. Who can play the piano.
5. Zero from The Nightmare Before Christmas
Zero can fly, his shining nose saves Christmas, and he’s a ghost. Awesome.
6. Percy from Pocahontas
His no-nonsense attitude and taste in collars is unparalleled.
