Diversity is no stranger to famous dogs. Famed canines come from many different sources that include television, movies, cartoons, books, music, history, comics and more. Some of the dogs gained their reputation directly through real life endeavors, and other’s got popular through the inspiration of their authors. Although the names have many different origins, they all belong to well known dogs throughout the world.
Gidget is the popular Chihuaha that appeared in Taco Bell commercials. She gained fame with the catch phrases “Yo quiero Taco Bell” and “Drop the Chalupa”. What you may not know about Gidget is that she also appeared in the movie ‘Legally Blonde 2’ as Bruiser’s mom. Among other real life famed canines are Bobbie the Wonder Dog (traveled over 2500 miles to return to his master’s home) and Laika (the first dog to travel to outer space).
There are also many fictional famous dog names. Snoopy is the well-known Beagle from the Charles Schulz comic strip ‘Peanuts’. Snoopy has seven siblings, five of which made appearances throughout the years (Andy, Belle, Marbles, Olaf, and Spike). What you may not know is that Snoopy was originally destined to be named Sniffy. Other notable fictional dog names include Clifford (from the children’s cartoon ‘Clifford the Big Red Dog’) and Astro (from Hanna Barbera’s ‘The Jetsons’).
