Dear Abby - Brownie the Wonder Dog

Dear Friends,

I hope you are having a great week!  This past week one of my friends sent my Momma a link about Baby Peggy (Diana Serra Cary), who was a silent movie star. Baby Peggy recently passed away, and there was an interesting article about her silent movie career.  (Thanks, Shari, for sending this!)  The article had a clip with one of Baby Peggy's movies.  I watched with Momma and guess what?  The movie clip costarred a famous dog I'd never heard of!

Brownie the Wonder Dog was a 1920's dog actor. He appeared in 51 movies between 1918 and 1924.  I was not able to find out much about his life - where he came from, who he lived with, etc.  I did read that there was a French comic strip based on his life from 1926 - 1927, Les Aventures du Chien Brownie.

I wanted to share the little three minute clip from Playmates (1921) starring Baby Peggy and Brownie the Wonder Dog.  It is fun to watch, and I hope you enjoy it too!

Wasn't that fun?!  I loved learning about an old time famous dog I'd never heard of before this week.
