I constantly see people walking around Portland with their dogs off leash and I wonder to myself, “Do they care about their dog at all?” It’s one thing to let your dog off leash in a confined open area like a large dog park or vast acreage far from traffic but on Hawthorne? Really people? I think that some of these people... Read More

I was a little too young to really remember Spuds MacKenzie but it feels like I always knew him. Actually him was a her, Spuds MacKenzie’s real name was Honey Tree Evil Eye and was from Malvern, PA. I really like the Spuds Mackenzie ads and they really remind me of the 80’s, I wish they still created ads like these today.... Read More

The Peanuts movie comes out today and, like most people, I love Snoopy. I grew up with the Peanuts gang and always had a particular fondness for Snoopy. Charlie Brown was kind of a bummer but his dog Snoopy always could be relied on for some comic relief. It seemed like every Christmas growing up, at some point “A Charlie Brown Christmas”...

Frankenweenie is a really sweet stop-motion animated film by Tim Burton released in 2012. I hadn’t seen Frankenweenie until a few days ago and I really enjoyed it. It’s obviously a parody of the classic Frankenstein but it didn’t really feel that way. The story was well done and I found myself caring for the characters especially the dog Sparky, who met...

Halloween is approaching and we wanted to feature some dog stars from some seriously scary movies. Here we have Precious from Silence of the Lambs, the beloved Bishon Frise of serial killer Buffalo Bill. Silence of the Lambs is one of my favorite movies of all time, the amount of memorable quotes is ridiculous. That little dog maybe a little creepy but... Read More
