Ready to Walk the Red Carpet
The Academy Awards are coming soon and I hear chatter about it everywhere I go. Admittedly, I'm not privy to much starlet intel, but I know one thing. Whenever I need to learn something, if I ask enough people, I'll get some answers.  So now it's your turn to hand over the info. In exchange for Academy Award trivia about pets, I'll hand out some great prizes. 


Let's lay down the rules, lay out the prizes and then we'll get going. You guys will have through Monday, February 20 to offer up the best tidbits of Academy Awards pet trivia in a comment. Enter as often as you like, but keep these rules in mind:

  • Each comment MUST BE pet-related trivia regarding the Academy Awards and/or the movies/movie industry. My judge's decisions are final on this contest, so keep to that simple rule so you're not wasting your time.
  • Each and every entry must include your contact information via Twitter, email or blog url. No contact information= No prize. :(

You can help me make this contest even more fun by tweeting the contest. However, you cannot win unless you have posted at least one comment with Academy Award pet trivia here at the blog. Here's a sample tweet:


Love Academy Award #pet trivia? Join @AllThingsDog 4 fun & prizes in a pet trivia #contest around the theme of the movie world http://ow.ly/8XClN


What can you win?


© Carrie Boyko
Replendish will Serve the Whole Fido Family
First Place: For the multi-pet family, a jumbo Replendish, 2.5 gallon water container and bowl by Petmate that filters water for healthier hydration. This waterer is ideal for households with multiple pets and larger dogs, as well as outdoor water storage to assure ample volume for thirsty, active fidos. If used outdoors, I advise the Replendish be placed in a shady area off the ground to keep ants at bay.

I Think I Can; I Think I Can...
Second Place: Three winners will each receive a bag of Terra Paws freeze dried sweet potato treats. These treats have been a hot item in our Twitter Parties and this is the last of the stock. Don't miss out because there won't be any more anytime soon.


Terra Paws are so good that Oliver had to show off his yoga dog concentration and focus in this photo. He's got Terra Paws on his paw and had to wait permission to snack. Good boy, Oliver!



Third Place:  Three winners will get an attachable leash dispenser for their poop bags, something that every dog owner needs. Your prize will come with 1 roll of bags included. If you share your pup's breed/mix and weight, I may get generous and include an All Things Dog Blog bandana in your package.


Winners will be announced Tuesday, February 21. Let your pursuit of trivia and treasures begin!

PS. For those of you who are really into the Academy Awards, I hear that The Tiniest Tiger will be in one of the secret rooms at the Academy Awards, tweeting and giving away a special hipster bag from his site. You can learn more by visiting here.


No purchase is required to enter this contest. It is open only to U.S. residents. Prizes have been provide for review, as conference swag and as a promotional courtesy. I have not been compensated to give these items away.

In the movie Up from Disney:
The dogs check their communication similar to the Rebels on the start of the attack on the Death Star. Though instead of "Red Leader, standing by," it's "Gray leader, checking in," due to the fact that dogs are colorblind.

Terry, a female Black Cairn Terrier, is best know for her role opposite Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz. Under the guidance of her owner, Carl Spitz, Terry acted across from Shirley Temple in the movie Bright Eyes.

In all Terry went on to act in 14 movies. The Wizard of Oz was Terry’s 3rd film. It was also the one that increased her star power. She made $125 a week for her performance, a larger sum than many of the human actors on the film. Indicative of her significance to the film is her attendance at the grand opening at Grauman’s Chinese Theater.

Did you know Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey 1993 The Himalayan cat Sassy, the golden retriever Shadow, and the American bulldog Chance...Played by (in order) Tiki Rattler and Ben (dog) Also Wishbone, yet another Jack Russel Terrier

Wishbone could talk in the old-school way that Milo and Otis and the Homeward Bound dogs could talk: a voiceover was simply added over the dog just kinda standing there. No fancy CG moving mouths here!! I love these movies!

Petey, was also an American Bulldog, and such a character dog was also featured long before the TV series, Little Rascals, in short films in movie theaters, know as Our Gang Comedies. The selection for the kids' dog was a no-brainer back then as Bullie Breeds, including the type (no-such breed) known as the Pitbull today, was a real family favorite as a family pet due to their lovable personality, their loyalty, and their wonderful disposition with children. Speaking of the latter, in Victorian England, Bullie Dogs were favored to keep watchful care over children in their nurseries...

Nana, the dog from Peter Pan, is a relative of the Newfoundland breed, which are entirely balck in fur, who is also related to the Great White Pyranees (yes, all white coat), but was actually the third in relative lines called a St. Bernard... All of these breeds are large of skull, large of frame, thick of fur including their plummed tails, a slight flop to their ears, broad of face & are all originally from cold mountain climates; their distant relatives, but a bit smaller of frame, is the Swiss Mountian Dog which is tri-colored of mainly black color with markings of rust & white, especially distinctive around the face...
