Did you see "Up?"

If you did, you may be familiar with the doggie character of Dug. My sister saw the movie before we did and swore that we would see a dog in the movie that "was Gonzo."
Well, having seen the movie, I now agree. If the writers had met our boy, they couldn't have done a better job writing Dug's character to match Gonzo's.
Two scenes in particular are dead on perfect. Dug says, upon his first meeting with the heroes, "My name is Dug. I have just met you, and I love you." which is exactly how our boy reacted when he met my husband at the Humane Society. The other scene is after Dug has been called a bag dog, he shows up at the front door and says,"I hid under your porch because I love you." Spot on perfect.
Although the line would be outright creepy if it were delivered by Christopher Walken. Imagine it: "I hid under your porch because I love you." Ecssshh! Instant skin crawl.

Good Boy, Gonzo. Know any squirrel jokes?
More to come, so come back if you're interested.
