Dug's Special Mission 2009 7+ out of 10
This Pixar short follows the adventures of Dug the cute and funny talking dog in the movie UP before he meets the main characters in the movie. It is Dug's birthday and the pack of dogs that he works under give him a special assignment to basically keep Dug out of the way --which backfires. Dug haplessly keeps getting in the way in a style that seems straight out of a Road Runner cartoon. The short is short and sweet as Dug finally has a happy ending to his birthday and is a great companion piece to the movie UP.
This short can be found on Pixar Shorts Volume 2 DVD.
