this is a living list as many dogs have and will speak to me forever
  1. Beau, my childhood dog
    0c300be6 f9f8 4806 b6bd f21827fd955c
    The best thing since sliced bread. Even dog skeptics like @xtineengels were all about him. Everyone thinks their dog is the best but this is actually true!!! A golden golden. Often cited as the purest relationship I've ever had with a male
  2. Dodger from "Oliver and Company"
    46679760 1493 447c 8c33 a5e8d4d2dbdc
    One of many cartoon animals I had the hots for as a child. Voiced by Billy Joel!
  3. Georgette from "Oliver and Company"
    D01bfb5a 55cb 456b a240 78b86ea29fa6
    How I learned that perfect isn't easy but it's me. Voiced by Bette Midler!
  4. Air Bud
    B03d0a67 c93e 4d4a b14a bf7609c0ee5c
    This dog also played Comet on "Full House." I still think about him
  5. Hot dogs
    645cd395 c8b6 433b 8229 4ad1e70c63fe
    A great food and also I learned what sex was bc I saw an animation on "Blind Date" of a hot dog going into a donut in 5th grade. Hot dogs have meant a lot to me
  6. When George Bailey says "I wish I had a million dollars! Hot dog!" in "It's A Wonderful Life"
    218f4d8b 77ee 4bc4 a09e 1a2b0e47345e
    The best movie of all time really. Reminds me of holiday treats and warm blankets at my childhood house. George Bailey is a fox
  7. "Reservoir Dogs"
    A25eacb0 a09e 44b1 a7d1 ea6c4d398241
    The first Tarantino movie I ever saw (when I was like in elementary school bc my parents were ~chill~) Gave me life, gave me Steve Buscemi
  8. The Black Dog
    6f6ea411 a2a1 4206 9af1 22898a31dfda
    The store on Martha's Vineyard. Growing up in Massachusetts, the Black Dog t-shirts taught me about personal brand and status. If you had a Black Dog shirt you were officially ~classy~ Obvi I had one, I hadn't even been to Martha's Vineyard I just made my mom to get it for me
  9. Big Dog
    9ddaedda 0645 41ff 9d28 6f2da83d3f19
    I have such vivid memories of this look. Another lesson in personal brand. If you wore a Big Dog shirt you were officially ~a snarky dad~
  10. Snoop Dogg @snoopdogg
    Bfa347c7 ed83 4563 9677 82d1212e9cd8
    "Drop It Like It's Hot" was my ringtone for a while!! It let people know that I wasn't a square
  11. Dutchess the Blind Therapy Dog
    4661f61b 1dea 4f5e ab8f 633bf7e78328
    The best dog Instagram in my humble opinion. The happiest dog ever despite her handicaps. ❤️ her
  12. Taco Bell Chihuahua
    Aec06322 efa7 4f7f ab9f c7de80074839
    Brought me tacos, brought me joy, and the guy who made these commercials gave me a college scholarship for real!! Have a lot to thank this pup for
  13. Jack the Bulldog
    Cccb0109 9973 49bb 9b9a 1e987de09383
    The Georgetown mascot. My dad went to Gtown and got me a stuffed version for my bday. I pushed it through the fence onto the White House lawn and a secret service guy had to give it back to me. Then I left it on an airplane and I'm still bummed
    5d868822 f433 410b beef 2719d28ef4e7
    Used this in eighth grade when I thought I was too cool for everything mainstream, including Google. Introduced to me by a boy who would later get very into Ron Paul which is such consistent branding on his part
  15. The three B's: Benji, Balto, Beethoven
    A5e2211c 0bba 40c6 b030 28bf07000ceb
    Inspiring movie dogs of my childhood. I was very freaked out by the scene where Thora Birch almost drowned in the pool and the Beehtoven saves her. Even more freaked out by Debi Mazar in Beethoven 2!!! Wanted to go to Alaska to see the real stuffed Balto. Was watching Benji when I found out Princess Diana died. Before that I didn't know who she was
  16. Sirius Black
    E2976c08 f25e 420c 9d9b 448a944420b9
    Not the coolest as a dog but overall, a top 3 HP character and the death I took the hardest in the books. Bought his wand in HP world
  17. Barkley the dog from "Big Bird Goes to China"
    B3890424 10b0 4cf2 9109 66e7bd5a4f69
    Taught me all about how cool China is! Was very psyched and a little scared of him as a child. He was very large and unpredictable!!!
  18. Uggie the dog from "The Artist"
    Af96ffb5 1112 47b2 a0bc a1105366ec68
    Made me think there should be dog Oscars, took his death hard. RIP
  19. Doge
    35685688 3a6e 4c95 9e65 165604d00db5
    One of few memes I've ever been really on board with. I still have a Doge version of the game 2048 on my iPhone, which is probably the most 2013 thing that ever happened
