The Top 10 Most Famous Dogs – (Part 2) Letters D to K
I’ve been compiling a list of famous dogs for my Pet Numerology website for some time now. I know which my favorites are, but I wondered which are the most famous overall. There are so many great famous dogs that I’m doing this in five or six groups, and then I’ll do a final round with the top dogs from those groups.
The most famous dogs (based on online chatter) with names starting with the letters D to K are:
10. Huckleberry Hound from the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoons
9. Delgado the German Shepard from the movie “Beverly Hills Chihuahua”
8. Kipper from the Kipper series of books by Mick Inkpen
7. Friday from the movie “Hotel for Dogs”
6. Doug the Chihuahua-Pug mix from the “Sarah Silverman Show”
5. Goofy from the classic Walt Disney cartoons
4. Gromit from the Wallace and Gromit animated short films
3. Dogbert from the “Dilbert” comic strip
2. Dug the talking dog from the Pixar Animated movie “Up”
…and the most famous dog on this list is…
1. Eddie the Jack Russell Terrier who was on the TV series “Frasier”
Dogs not ranking in the top 10 were Daisy from the “Blondie” comic strip, Damka the Soviet Space dog, Digby the Golden Retriever on the TV series “Pushing Daisies”, Earl from the “Mutts” comic strip, El Diablo from the movie “Beverly Hills Chihuahua”, Elektra from the “Cathy” comic strip, Fido who was US President Abraham Lincoln’s dog, Flike the terrier from the movie “Umberto D.”, Fly the Border Collie from the movie “Babe”, Fuzz from the “Ziggy” comic strip, Gaspode from several of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels, Goliath from the animated TV series “Davey and Goliath”, Grimm from “Mother Goose and Grimm” comic strip, Happy from the TV series “7th Heaven”, Hooch the French Mastiff from the movie “Turner and Hooch”, Howard Huge the Saint Bernard from the “Howard Huge” comic strip, Hubert the Bloodhound from the movie “Best in Show”, Isaboo who is Rachael Rae’s Pit Bull Terrier, K9 the robotoic dog from the TV series “Dr. Who”, and Krasavka the Soviet Space dog.
So a nice mix of dogs from movies (Dug, Gromit, Friday, Delgado), television (Eddie, Doug), books(Kipper), cartoons (Goofy, Huckleberry Hound) and comic strips (Dogbert). Not surprisingly, all of the top ten dogs are characters and not real life dogs. Too bad those brave Soviet Space dogs aren’t better know, so I’ll mention their names one more time: Damka and Krasavka.
I compiled this list by searching for the dog names listed on a number of search engines and ranking them by the number of web pages, discussion forums, photos, videos, etc that are available online.
