Put Your Paws Together for National Pets in Film Day

Cats and dogs have been on the big and small screens since the early days. June 19 is National Pets in Film Day, which was created to promote compassion for animals. So what better time to talk about pets and movies? Grab your popcorn and read on!

Lassie's a Lad
Although Lassie was a girl in the TV series and movies, this heroic pup was actually played by a boy named Pal. Male collies tend to have thicker coats, which look better on camera.

Mr. Bigglesworth's Breed
In the Austin Powers movies, Dr. Evil's famous feline Mr. Bigglesworth was a Sphynx cat. The Sphynx is considered a hairless breed and is known to love cuddling for warmth.

Many Marleys
The touching film Marley and Me covers 14 years in the life of the title dog. To make the film, the director used yellow labs at different ages to play him – 22 in all!
