From the Mouths of Pups…

There’s no surer way to tug at our heartstrings than to show us a classic animal film. Heartwarming message? Check. Lovable protagonists? Check. Cute little faces? Check. In fact, we find our fave inspirational quotes more often than not come from these four-legged fave flicks! If you’re in need of some Friday motivation, read on for a nostalgic litany of inspiration.

The Fox & The Hound

Walt Disney Pictures

Widow Tweed: Goodbye may seem forever. Farewell is like the end. But in my heart’s the memory, and there you’ll always be.

This quote gets us every time. It reminds us that goodbye is never the end, not so long as you have memories, connection, 🤗 and love.

Homeward Bound

Walt Disney Pictures

Shadow: It’s built in. Has been ever since the dawn of time… When a few wild dogs took it upon themselves to watch over man, to bark when he’s in danger, to run and play with him when he’s happy, to nuzzle him when he’s lonely. That’s why they call us man’s best friend.

That’s Why. They’re. Man’s. Best. Friend. If that line doesn’t make you wanna hug 💕  your pup, nothing will.

An American Tail

Universal Pictures

‘Somewhere Out There’ And even though I know how very far apart we are/ It helps to think we might be wishin’ on the same bright star

No matter how far you have to be from your bestie or loved ones, we’re all looking up at the same moon and stars 🌙✨ and are only as far apart in distance – not love.

Finding Nemo

Disney Pixar

Dory: When life gets you down, you know what you gotta do? Just keep swimming.

We all run into some obstacles and there’s a valley for every peak but we just gotta keep on trucking and 🏊‍♀️ keep on swimming!

Lady & the Tramp

Walt Disney Pictures

Tramp: Life on a leash. Look again… There’s a great big hunk of world down there, with no fence around it…. And beyond those distant hills, who knows what wonderful experiences?

Tramp here fills our souls with a thirst for adventure and makes us rebel 👊 against complacency!

Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron

Walt Disney Pictures

Spirit: The hoofbeats were many but our hearts were one.

There’s nothing like being united by one common thread with your besties! 👯‍♀️


Universal Pictures

Balto: Since when do you need a pedigree to help someone?

It doesn’t matter who you are – anyone can do great 🎖 things!

Charlotte’s Web

Charlotte: You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing.

Any lingering fear we may have had of spiders, Charlotte cures. 🕸 Friendship is, of course, the biggest and best thing there is.

101 Dalmatians

Walt Disney Pictures

Rolly: I’m hungry, Mother. I’m hungry.

Perdita: Now Rolly, you’ve just had your dinner.

Rolly: But I am, just the same. I’m so hungry

This one, uh, just speaks to us on a spiritual, perpetually hungry, level. 🌮

Our besties really do hold the most wisdom. How much better a place would the world be if we tried to be just a bit more like our four-legged friends?
