Popular culture’s most amazing dogs
The Vodafone pug
He’ll find you true love, follow you when you go fishing, dote on you, curl up next to you at night, and stand guard while you canoodle with a love interest. Man, with dogs like these, who needs networks?
Odie from Garfield
Eternally panting, unfalteringly joyful, infinitely enthusiastic, naive, hopeful, energetic: We can’t get enough of him, even as he’s constantly getting one- upped by the sulky, scheming Garfield.
Muttley from Whacky Races and The Perils of Penelope Pittstop
Question: What’s more awesome than a dog who sits shotgun in a race car? Answer: A dog that sniggers deviously every time you screw up.
Tuffy from Hum Aapke hain kaun
Tuffy earns his stripes umpiring cricket matches and deciphering that Salman Khan is in fact, the real groom. Of course, he thinks of doing the last bit an hour before the wedding when he could have picked any moment during those long months spent picking sarees, sending out wedding invites… well, the umpiring bit is so cool.
Snoopy from Peanuts
How many dogs do you know write books, are World War I Flying Aces and have an alter-ego called Joe Cool? Just the one.
Snowy from Tin Tin
An inquisitive if slightly cowardly white Wire Fox Terrier, Snowy accompanies Tin Tin in his adventures. He helps him solve mysterious and sometimes even gets super drunk and delirious. Hey, a dog’s gotta do what a dog’s gotta do.
Fang from the Harry Potter series:
He’s full of disobedient, happy doggy-love and he slobbers absolutely everywhere, in sickness and in health, in good times and bad. Cheers.
Dug from Up
A golden retriever that can talk. Yup, that’s right; Dug has a special collar that translates his barks into human. Affectionate and joyful, only squirrels can distract him.
