I guess my favorite pet in the movies was Benji. I remember when I was a little kid and loving those movies. There are lots of other famous dogs: Lassie, Rin Tin Tin, and many others.

I can't think of a single cat. What am I forgetting?

Well, there's the Garfield movie that came out this summer. It really got panned here, so I didn't go see it.

Didn't the Austin Powers movie feature a Sphinx cat?

I seem to remember some years back a movie that featured a cat as a detective, but I can't remember the title. And then I thought there was another one about a cat that wanted to take over the world.

Benji! So much better than Black Beauty or Lassie Smile I never liked the last two much anyway. Benji was portraited as a life character and the other two resolved more around the human actors/actress'.

Homeward Bound was a nice film. Any version. I always forget the name of the young dog. I remember a series of books, featuring two siamese cats who helped with the detective work, if I am correct.

I saw the movie The Princess Diaries 2 yesterday. I really liked the tuxedo cat, Fat Louie! He was so cute!

Of course, there's Asta, the little wire-haired fox terrier from the Thin Man movies in the 30s and 40s. And Toto too!

Incidentally, if you ever watch The Wizard of Oz, check out Toto during "Over the Rainbow." He's got his little eyes on Judy Garland the whole time, and if you look carefully, you can see her toss him a treat. You may be only able to see that on the big screen, but it's definitely there. They were food training back in the 30s too, and it was just as superior to force then as it is today.

But the all-time charming movie for training has to be Cujo. There are a couple of long shots when he's trying to get into the car and you can just see a wag of his tail as he plays this interesting game.

And always check out the "evil" Dobes and Rotties. These are the dogs of choice for occult films featuring evil dogs, because you can film them without seeing their little tails going like mad. But if you watch, you can occasionally see the little tail quivering with excitement.

When I was small, I liked "Beethoven" a lot about St. Bernard dog. Do you remember this film? Though, in reality, I would not like to keep such big dog in the apartment. I think it is really difficult. But the film is very funny, kind and nice.

I am not sure about the cat being the detective but there is the movie "That darn cat" which has an older and newer version and then the one about the cat that wanted to take over the world I think you are talking about "Cats and Dogs" with Jeff Goldblum.

Look them up and see if either of those are what you are thinking of. Smile
