Pug Valentine's Day

The RAAA pug tries to find love on Valentine's Day.
Thanks to the Canandian company Rhidian Art and Animation for this little icon of love.

Monkey Bone

Brendan Fraser plays a cartoonist in a coma who tries to get an exit visa from Death - played by Whoopi Goldberg. And of course, Death just couldn't do her job without a Pug sitting on her lap.

See how Snuff (in the backgroud) completely ignores Fanny and her cookie - an amazing performance

Mansfield Park

This is the 1983 BBC version and - hands (paws?) down - the pug gives the best performance. He even gets a credit, "Snuff" (which he very well should considering how he upstages everyone else). Best of all his big moment comes in Episode One so you don't have to watch the rest of it.

Hal Holbrook hauls his pug out of the bucket

Men of Honor

Men of Honor stars Cuba Gooding Jr. and Robert De Niro. It is based on the true story of Carl Brashear who was determined to be the first African American Navy Diver.
Navy Diving School captain, Mr. Pappy, won't leave his watch tower so his pug travels up and down by bucket.

You have to watch closely to see the pug

(Hint: he's not hanging out with Kong on the mountaintop)


King Kong

This is the second movie of director Peter Jackson, that has a pug. The first one, "Heavenly Creatures" is in the pug movie archives. I think the Oscar winning director is a pugalugger at heart (I guess he couldn't find a spot in the Lord of the Rings; although I think if a Hobbit were to have a dog it would be a pug).
Anyway, sit back, play "spot the pug" and enjoy the movie.

Cats & Dogs

"There's a secret war being waged in the homes and neighborhoods of Earth that the humans don't even know about; an eternal struggle between two great armies: the Cats and the Dogs. The film follows a Cat's plan to destroy a new vaccine, that if developed, would destroy all human allergies to Dogs, and the Dogs' efforts to stop the Cats." Watch for the Drill Sergeant Pug.

The Great Race

"Professional daredevil and white-suited hero, The Great Leslie, (Tony Curtis) convinces turn-of-the-century auto makers that a race from New York to Paris (westward across America, the Bering Straight and Russia) will help to promote automobile sales. Leslie's arch-rival, the mustached and black-attired Professor Fate (Jack Lemmon) vows to beat Leslie to the finish line in a car of Fate's own invention."
Excerpted from the Internet Movie Database

Jack Lemmon plays 2 roles - Professor Fate and Prince Hapnik. It is the fun loving Prince that has the bed-hopping, brandy-drinking, face-slurping pugs.
