Marmaduke on DVD and Fill The Backpack Giveaway #2

by Shannan on September 15, 2010

One of my favorite memories as a child was reading the comic strips in the Sunday paper with my grandfather, grandmother, dad or whoever else I could sucker into getting into a chair for some snuggling and giggling. Marmaduke was always a hit. Every week, that big, lumbering Great Dane would find himself in another little fiasco, exasperating his people to no idea, but always coming out as loveable as ever.

Recently, Fox Entertainment brought the Marmaduke comic strip to the big screen with a live action/animation feature film. With a cast including Owen Wilson, Emma Stone and George Lopez, viewers get to see the real personality of Marmaduke and his friends. I’m so excited that I get to share this childhood favorite with my kids, updated for the 21st century.

Throughout the film, Marmaduke gets into all kinds of shenanigans, as always. What I love most though, is that sweet, gentle Great Dane spirit that he possesses. He reminds me a bit of the St. Bernard that lived down the street when I was growing up. He was best friends with my itty bitty knee high mutt. To see them palling around was such a Mutt and Jeff scenario, it would leave you in stitches. One of my favorite memories was the Bernard (I’m old, I can’t remember his name now) backing himself into Barkley’s tiny little doghouse and Barkley wedging himself between the horse sized dog’s front paws. There they would sit for hours, just hanging out…or stuck, who knows! If that doesn’t sound like a Marmaduke moment, what does?

I’m excited to include the a copy of the Marmaduke movie on DVD, courtesy Fox Entertainment, in my backpack giveaway, along with all of these other amazing prizes:

    My favorite Dog story is the rescue of my pom. I saved him from a breeding farm. He has been the best dog I have ever had. He will not leave my side. I figure this is the thanks for saving him. He is even there when I get sick. He makes sure I am alright before he leaves my side. (I am diabetic)

    My fav dog story/memory is of a neigborhood dog that usedto join in our bike parades around the block. He marched right along behind the bike trial as if he was one of us!

    I used to have a dog Scruffy who used to ride my skateboard in the 80’s. We’d comb his hair into a mohawk and put his front paws into checkered vans. He looked like he was smiling when he’d ride!

    I had a neighbor who dressed her little yorkie up in fancy sweaters. I would see her walking around the neighborhood with her little dog and one day I stopped to talk to her. When we were wrapping up the conversation, she said, “Well, Mr. McGee and I have to go back and get ready for dinner”. She walked away and I was left standing there, pondering who Mr. McGee was. It was the dog! The dog was actually named Mr. McGee. I laughed for a while about that one.

    My dogs are just like my children, but with fur. We tragically lost our house in our house fire and my beloved fur baby Raven, a black and tan dachshund, and her two newborn puppies were lost in the fire. I was devastated. I cried for days! My husband, knowing how much I love dogs, said we could find another. But, lost in my grief and knowing no other dog could ever replace my shadow Raven, denounced ever owning another dog. Months went by and I stuck to my guns of no dogs. One day we were at the hospital visiting our Grandpa and as we were leaving (actually getting into the car) my husband said “Hey, you want a ……” and that is as far as he got. When all of the sudden this miniture blue healer jumps right into our car’s backseat with the kids. My husband said that it was fate and the kids cried to keep her. Still adamant about not having another dog, after taking her home and cleaning her up, I called the shelters and reported I found a missing dog. I called our local radio classifieds with finding a lost dog. No one called and claimed her so she was now a part of the family whether I liked it or not. At first, I ignored her and didn’t look at her, but eventually she warmed my heart and we became fast friends. She is the most wonderful dog and I know that Raven would want me to love again. So I believe Misty was a gift from God when I needed more than anything at the time.

    My favorite dog story is about my sheltie growing up. She used to wait by the fence EVERY afternoon when the school bus came to wait for us to get home. It was so sweet. She was always so excited to see us and have us back home so we could play with her. I still miss her!

    My dog was my dog Snickers. I adopted him a day before he was to be put to sleep. I never could understand why no one wanted to adopt him. He was the cutest, fluffiest (chow/german shep mix), sweetest dog I’d ever met.

    He was the best dog ever. Learned tricks well, very well behaved, and even welcomed my son home after he was born. Truly he was one of a kind. He passed away last month and it was totally heartbreaking. To know we’d never be graced with his presence was a tough one to bear.

    While I know I help other dogs, I know there won’t be one like Snickers. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

    I never had a pet and my husbands niece brought a dog back from her honeymoon in Costa Rica but couldn’t keep her. We were asked if we wanted her and I said no – until I learned about her background – When they went to spade her they found dead puppies that died of starvation – she was living in the street and hit by a restaurant owner when she begged for food – she was so skinny you could look at her and count her ribs. Her back leg was out of it’s socket from either a car accident or a beating. Once I heard all that I said yes – she deserved to be loved. We called her Sunshine because she brought happiness into our house (we had 4 miscarriages, etc). She was such a loving dog. Even when she developed diabetes and required 2 shots per day – she was easy to take care of. She was very loyal and clearly loved my husband but when he passed away she followed me everywhere. At night she’d go upstairs and sit on the stairs and wait for me to go to bed. We were nervous when our son was born how she would be with a baby and she was very gentle with him.

    Okay, I have a few stories, but the one that jumped out first was of our dog, Jenna. She is now 14 – bless her in her “senior” years. When she was about 1 year old she was barking with this deep protective bark that would have scared away anybody attempting to enter our home unwelcomed. Well, she was in the kitchen and quite honestly I was nervous to come in from the livingroom because she sounded pissed off and I certainly didn’t want to confront what/who ever she was barking at. So I creeped into the kitchen to find her barking still…..at her own reflexion in the oven door!
    I will just say this, she is a pretty smart girl, but obviously there is a dog from her litter who is oozing intelligence! 😉

    My favorite dog HERO story was when my husband was on patrol as a sheriff deputy and got a call of a dog who fell through the ice on a small lake. The dog was rescued by my husband going out on the ice by laying on a ladder attached to a rope. The dog was clearly in alot of stress by this time. Lots of by standers watching and clapping when it was all over. I didn’t know about the rescue until an article was written in the paper about the great dog rescue and it was brought to my attention. Yes he is my HERO!!!!

    We adopted a little schnauzer like dog named “Pearl” because he was found on the anniversary of Pearl Harbor Day. Pearl was a lap dog and LOVED my dad, who would stroke Pearl’s hair for hours. Although a sweet dog, he was not friendly around children which quickly became a problem with the grandchildren. He would nip and scratch – obviously Pearl had been mistreated as some time in his life. It was bittersweet the day when we had to give Pearl away to a good home.

    When my dog Nolee (Siberian Husky) was about 6 mo. old we decided to leave her out of her crate while my husband and I went to work. What a mistake that was! When we returned she had pulled our queen size matress pad and sheets off of the matress, chewed on part of it, pulled the matress itself off of the box spring and chewed all the little handles to move the mattress right off. Needless to say when she saw us, she had a smirk about her, but climbed right into her crate.

    My cat Oreo has long white whiskers, one day I found one on the table, when I pointed it out to her, she looked a it funny, then suddenly grabbed it with her two front paws and tried to put it back on her face, she did it for like 5 minutes, it was hysterical

    I have so many favorite dog stories from my childhood and in the present time with my cats. I think what my favorite thing about my kids and our 2 cats is they way they love each other. I just love going into their bedroom to check on them at night and I have one cat on the bottom bunk snugged up against Adam and another cat all curled up on the top bunk with Elias.

    My favorite cat story is about my 11 year old cat, Cricket. When she was 6 weeks old someone put her and her siblings in a pillow case on the doorstep of a veterinary clinic. It was mid December in Indiana and it was so cold! I wanted a kitten as I was newly married and my husband worked a lot. So I called the local vets offices and finally found one that had kittens. When I walked through the front door of the office there she was sticking her paw out of a cage trying to get my attention. I took her home that day and now we’ve had her for almost 11 years. She is the best cat!

    On one trip back home to visit family ( we are military and live states away from “Home”) I went to visit my Aunt. Now her dog had just had a litter of pups and my daughters wanted to go see them. In the backyard we came across 3 little Dachshund pups. As we walked around one kept running into the back of my legs. Lord help me, I fell in love with that little pup. As I picked him up I noticed his eyes. His pupils were huge and I knew that his vision was probably gone. My Aunt then asked if I would be able to take him home with us. With my background in dog training she knew we would be the best home she could find for him. He now lives with us. 2 states from where we are from, in a home that will move around a bunch, but he is now family. He barks at the fence when you go outside and his mortal enemy was the couch for a few days, but he is the best pup we could ever ask for. Sure he never has seen us, but he knows we love him and that is good enough for him :) He is now named “Trooper.” He has no idea that he is different from any other dog and lives a pampered lap dog life.

    My favorite dog story is about our dog, Shadow. She was a rescue and we got her when she was about 12 weeks old. We had her gated in the family room and thought we had moved everything that she could get into trouble with. We left the room for a little while and when we came back, found that she had gotten a pair of glasses off the shelf and chomped on them, breaking the glass! Then we were crawling around on the floor trying to make sure we got every piece of glass and fitting it together to double-check…very fun. Not. There was one piece we never found and we were sure she ate it and it was going to kill her and we’d only had her for about 2 days! Luckily she showed no ill effects and is a happy and healthy 2 1/2 year old today, who still sometimes eats things she shouldn’t. :)

    When my oldest daughter was little she had a cat named Nala. That silly cat followed her EVERYWHERE! And when I say everywhere, I mean she followed her to the corner store, to her friends’ houses, to the pizza place around the corner…everywhere! When the neighbors would see them walking down the street they would say “There goes H and her doggie” LOL. It was the cutest thing! I miss that kitty…

    My fav cat story…

    I grew up in Revelstoke BC where we get tons of snow. One afternoon as I was walking up the driveway our cat wacky came running over on top of the frozen snow. It was so windy that the wind picked him up and dropped him off in front of me. His face was priceless!

    Well, this is going to be sad, but I don’t really like ‘live’ dogs! When I was four I was walking from my house to my grandparents house–we all lived on a big farm and my Mom let me and my older sister walk the 100 yards or so to their house. This day, a group of ‘wild’ dogs came out of the woods and across the field and before my Mom could get there, the dogs knocked me down. I got scratched up and had one bite on my leg. So needless to say, I have not really enjoyed being around dogs every since. However, I did enjoy the Marmaduke movie!

    My next door neighbors menacing cat. Ugh! His name is Gus and he loves to hang out in the yards of other people. Cute and friendly, but sooo annoying. Sometimes I find him sitting in front of my home like he owns it. Or laying on the back porch like he is mine. I don’t know why, but he drives me nuts sometimes. lol

    Ninja Dog! When you have a great dane, you have to have nicknames! Well Logan has become Ninja Dog…he’s all black and is the loudest dog you’ve ever met…when walking down the stairs he cashes into the banister and the wall, bangs his tail into everything, etc…wouldn’t be so bad except he wakes our kids up all the time! We jokingly call him Ninja Dog…he’s gotten the hint…every time we say Ninja Dog, he now sits down like he’s trying to be quiet but the tail can’t stop wagging!

    During my junior year of college, I decided to get a cat. I went to the shelter a few times, but didn’t have much chemistry with any kitties there, so I kept waiting. One night I was coming out of the library when I heard a tiny sound coming from the bushes. I looked over to see the tiniest black kitten lying there shivering. I called my roommate, who came running across campus like a nut carrying a hand towel. We wrapped the kitty up and took her to the vet. She had lice, ear mites, an under-developed colon and was very near death. They said if she survived, she’d never live more than one year. After a few nights at the vet, they let us bring her home, where she began to thrive. She had to go live with my parents when I went off to grad school and she bonded with my dad. Though she suffered from a seizure disorder most of her life, my Audrey kitty lived to be 11 years old. She was one of the sweetest animals I’ve ever known.

    Well, my favorite cat story is my cat Lily’s story of survival. First,when we I first saw Lily she was at the vet I was working for and she was the blood donor cat. I convinced him to just get volenteer animals instead of keeping one at the store.So, I took her home with me.
    Well, poor Lily disappeared one winter day and I looked for 2 months before I gave up hope.Then,on Christmas eve a phone call came from a lady who lived down the street she said she heard a cat crying in the basement of the old empty house next door and when she pryed the window open she found Lily!!!!She was in terrible shape but after a long trip to the vet and rest,she got well.Now she is a young 18 year old cat and doing well.

I went to answer the door and when I came back our dog Fletch was sitting on the dining room chair eating the chicken I made for dinner. The kids thought he looked so funny sitting in the chair eating chicken. Needless to say we had pizza that night.

    I have lots of stories but one of my fave is…when I was preggo (happened with both kids) my cat and dog both felt they needed to keep my belly warm and would wrap themselves around my belly. I guess they where both nesting. :) Even after the kids were born both animals always stayed close to the babies.

Emily said that Myra went running to the door, as if she expected me to show up! Smart, but silly, dog.

    I don’t know that I can think of an good pet stories (though I had a dog when I was young and loved him dearly). For some reason my life B.C. seems a vague distant memory, almost like it wasn’t my life at all. Right now my girls are on a quest for their own dog though. So, if we can eventually convince my hubby, I’ll then have some good pet stories to share. :)

    This is a crazy one. Funny but scary too! I was sleeping on the couch one morning next to our windows that had pull down blinds on them. I am annoyed because I keep getting woke up by my cat playing with the ball on the end of the blind strings. Then, I wake up to this screaming meow from my cat! Somehow, he had gotten his foot tangled in the cord and was laying on the floor, with the cord stuck on one of his toes. Just one! Ouch! He was freaking out because since he had pulled on it, the blind was trying to go down, pulling the strings up, with my cats toe attached! I had to grab him, as he was hissing and scratching at me, so I could pull the blind up and release his toe. It was scary when it happened but pretty funny once he was ok. What a way to wake up!

    I got bit on the butt by my neighbors dog named Chippy, he chased me and took a pretty good nip. I tweeted,

    We had a pet Doberman Pinscher dog that we named Prince after the artist; we (my sis and bro.) were all huge fans of Prince at the time! Our doberman was our best friend.

    My funny story is that my friend was running from my dog and so jessie was chasing her. But jessie was the nicest dog and so when she caught up to my friend she just starting licking her and my friend was just screaming and making such a scene. (it was funny at the time)!

    Dogs are awesome! My sister’s dog became a part of their family in an uncommon way….my sister and her husband fell in love with a home….the owners said that they would sell it to them but they had to keep their dog…what, we had never heard of that kind of home sale! LOL! The owners were moving out of state and thought it would be hard on the dog….so my sister bought the house, got an awesome dog! She’s the best, a super loving, smart chocolate lab! A funny thing she does is if anybody goes in the pool, she 100% of the time will jump in the pool right near you!

    My husband and I were house sitting for the first month after we were married. This house also came with two dogs, Maggie an irish wolfhound and Tessa, an almost dead thirteen year old dalmatian. Well, our food kept disappearing from the counter and we kept blaming it on Maggie….until we came home on our last night at the house. Tessa had eaten a full bag of starbursts (with the wrapper) and a pound of twizzlers….who would have thought? (We knew it was her by her breath and her poo the following day confirmed it.)

    The other day our dog was barking at something in the backyard through the window. She was so frantic I thought it had to be an animals…it was a football! A neighborhood kid had thrown it over the fence on accident and she thought it was alive! LOL

    My favorite pet story is one from my two cats: Raskal and Simon. I was out of town for a few days and asked a friend to come over a few times a day to feed them, give them water etc. Well he came into their room, (Yes they had their own room, I know, spoiled), and couldn’t find them anywhere. He freaked out and called me because he had checked in the closet, in the window sill, and nothing! Then, he starts laughing so hard….he tells me the pet bed is moving on the floor. They were BOTH under the bed and walking with it on top of them, like camouflage! Too funny!!
