The Classic Movie Dogathon

The world's first Classic Movie Dogathon (well, we think it is) ran over four days in February 2012. Hosted by the Classic Film & TV Cafe, it featured 24 posts consisting of a review of a classic film featuring a dog in a prominent role or a profile of a famous canine performer. Whether you're a dog lover or a movie lover, we recommend that you check out the classics below!  (Just click on the blog title)

  2. The Wife is already signed up for the blogathon, but now that I've found the film I was hoping to find...

    I call Digby, The Biggest Dog In The World.

  3. This is an official "shout-out" to Rick of the Classic Film and TV Cafe. He has been incredibly supportive of this novice blogger without a need or reason. A sincere 'Thank you' for that and for inviting me to participate in the Classic Movie Dogathon. I am very excited, if a bit out of my league.

    All wonderful entries so far.


  4. Nothing about "The Biscuit Eater" (1940) ?! (not the Disney remake.)

  5. Release the Hounds! : )
    Thanks for allowing us all to participate in your fun little Dogathon Rick.
