Silent movies are full of wonderful cats but there are also quite a few amazing dogs. (Just don’t tell the cats. On second thought, it doesn’t matter, they won’t believe you anyway.)
I’ve been in a dog state of mind lately because I am in the process of adopting this little scamp:
California law requires dogs to be spayed or neutered by the shelter or rescue group before they can be released so I am just waiting for his surgery to be completed before I can bring him home. He’s a little swashbuckler with plenty of pep and a sweet, gentlemanly manner. I’m calling him Douglas Fairbanks.
But on to the GIFs!
We’ll start with a toy dog, a prop that Clara Bow makes the most of in IT. Ooo, you naughty puppy!
One of my personal favorites, Blair from Rescued by Rover, one of the very first dog stars in the movies. Awwww!
Charles Ray hugs a very polite collie in The Pinch Hitter. “I was going for more of a shake but… incoming hug! Incoming hug!”
The dogs of Coronado photobomb Rudolph Valentino and Vera Sisson in The Married Virgin. Well, who am I to deny puppies a little fun?
