All Time Best: Movie With A Talking Dog

All Time Best Movie Moments

I love dogs. I’m think they are the most entertaining and fascinating animals on the planet.  So much personality.  Always happy to see you.

Whenever I’m around dogs, I can’t help but wonder what they are thinking.  Most of the time, I give them a voice and say it out loud.  It’s often funny (and annoying perhaps) but it’s a curiosity I’ve had for a long time.

Enter the movie industry.  There are literally billions of movies out there that feature talking animals.  900,000+ of those are about dogs.

For me, it all began with:

The Adventures of Milo & Otis

I still can’t watch this clip without laughing.

Otis is hands down one of the best talking dogs ever.

Today, most dogs in movies have moving mouths and voices but Milo & Otis didn’t have that luxory.  I believe it’s an advantage.  Dudley Moore narrates for both title characters in this classic.  As you may have guessed, I’m a fan of Otis the Pug.

The Adventures Of Milo & Otis

Milo & Otis is the type of movie that sticks with you.  A perfect movie for kids and frankly the kids who grew up with it.

It’s a simple story about friendship featuring one of the best ‘talking’ dogs of all time.

Fantastic movie.

PS: I’m pretty great friends with a dog named Mylo.  Big fan of that little guy.
