Dear Abby - Favorite Dog Movies: The Adventures of Milo and Otis

Dear Friends,

Today I am happy to introduce a new blog series about favorite dog movies.  I asked readers for their favorite dog movies, and I will be blogging about movies that my friends mentioned here and on Facebook.

The Adventures of Milo and Otis is a movie that was mentioned several times.  I have not ever seen this movie, but I enjoyed reading about it and learning more.  This movie was about the special friendship of a kitten named Milo and a pug dog named Otis.  They are great friends, but they are separated, and go on a journey to find their way back together. 
This movie was in production in Japan for four years, and the original Japanese title translated to A Kitten's Story.  The original movie was released in 1986, but Columbia Pictures re-edited the movie and shortened it, adding narration by actor Dudley Moore.  It was a great success, both in Japan and in the United States.

Here is the original trailer from this movie:

The trailer was fun!  I really like pug dogs and love stories about friendships between cats and dogs.

Have you seen The Adventures of Milo and Otis?   Do you have other favorite dog movies you would like to see featured here in the future?   I would love to hear from you in the comments, below.

Thanks for visiting, and have a great day!

It is a really cute movie, you should go watch it asap. I always love pet movies, I get all soby and cry a lot usually. The incredible journey is a great one (both the orginal and the 90's version)
