You’d be lying if you said you didn’t want a pet like Dug from Disney Pixar’s “Up.”
Dug is the perfect loyal and furry companion for many reasons. The most obvious reason being that he can talk! Dug talks through a collar that helps him translate his thoughts into English, and it’s pretty amazing. Watch the video below for a glimpse of Dug from the movie. He is too cute not to love!
Now that we are all on the same page with wanting Dug as a pet, take a look at how Disney actually made Dug come to life as an actual talking dog. Well, kind of. Basically, they put a collar with a speaker—just like Dug’s—on a cute Golden Retriever, turned him loose in a park and spoke for the pup from behind the scenes.
We can’t stop watching this video because all the interactions with real-life Dug are too perfect.
He compliments a little boy’s shirt saying, “I like your gray shirt, tiny human.” The humans reactions to Dug are pretty adorable, too.
“I’ve never met a talking dog!” one little boy exclaims, while Dug responds: “And I’ve never met a nicer smelling human!”
The cutest moment has to be when he tells a little girl, “I have just met you and I love you.” (Just like the movie Dug did!) And of course he snuck in a “SQUIRREL!” comment.
Disney has not revealed all their magic behind the video, but it sounds like Bob Peterson, the voice of Dug in the movie “Up,” was probably behind the scenes with a hidden camera and a mic.
We would like to state for the record that we are available for filming if Disney wants to bring more of their cuddly creatures to life!
We love you too Dug! Thanks for making magic come to life!
