EVERYONE thinks their beloved pet dog is special. Although the lazy little bastard hasn’t achieved even half as much as some of these famous dogs.
Lassie, from Lassie
The quintessentially helpful movie dog, alerting its owners to fires, storms and people trapped in mines. This dog performed every function of the emergency services. Your dog, on the other hand, often appears to be confused by its own farts.
Beethoven, from Beethoven
The St. Bernard in Beethoven essentially becomes the surrogate father of a family of three and helps break up a crime syndicate dealing in stolen animals. The next time you’re washing your mutt’s piss from your carpet, stop and consider just what it’s bringing to the table.
Toto, from The Wizard of Oz
Toto not only helped free his owner from imprisonment but also revealed the Wizard of Oz to be little more than a con artist. Without wishing to cast aspersions about your dog’s abilities, if you do ever end up imprisoned, it’ll be a frustrating wait if you’re expecting your hound to come and free you.
Buddy, from Air Bud
Look, you may have a certain fondness for your own dog, but look at it now – perhaps licking itself – and ask: ‘How many slam dunks has my dog performed in its life?’ The answer is ‘none’. Your dog therefore can’t even hold a candle to Buddy and his on-court exploits.
Jack, from The Artist
This dog was, in many ways, the emotional glue that held one of the most acclaimed movie’s of the 2010s together. As a result the movie won five Academy Awards. Your hound almost certainly doesn’t even have an IMDb page, let alone one as decorated as this terrier’s.
