    Default Top dogs in popular culture

    From AP....

    The "Peanuts" comic strip character Snoopy was named the top dog in pop culture by the American Kennel Club on Tuesday as part of its 125th anniversary celebration, beating out a college sports mascot.

    Nearly 76,000 online voters chose their favorites from a list of pop culture dogs drawn from television, film, literature, sports and art, the kennel club said.

    Snoopy was the pensive dog whose best friend was a bird and who seemed to be smarter than his human master in the comic strip created by the late Charles Schulz, who died in 2000.

    "Peanuts," which for close to five decades served as a mirror for the baby boom generation, appeared in 2,600 newspapers in 21 languages. Its daily readership was believed to be the most of any comic strip in history.

    Second place went to Texas A&M University's mascot Reveille, followed by Scooby Doo, the television cartoon character.

    The top 10:
    1. Snoopy
    2. Texas A&M's Reveille
    3. Scooby Doo
    4. Eddie from the TV show "Frasier"
    5. Pound Puppy toys
    6. Painting "Dogs Playing Poker"
    7. Song "How Much is that Doggie in the Window"
    8. Georgetown's Jack the Bulldog
    9. The song "Who Let the Dogs Out"
    10. Brian Griffin from the animated TV show Family Guy

    Wow. No offense to A&M fans, but the first thing I think of when I think of a dog in college sports is UGA. He always looks badass.


    I can't believe no Lassie or Rin Tin Tin either. I'm only 35, so it's not like this generation has never heard of them a million times...

    Poochie... "Always Recycle... to the Extreme!!!"
    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore

    Not really a top dog if he played second fiddle to a cat.

    I don't think so, but he likely has a cat named Shosanna.
    David Bowie even sang about her.
    But I like this one better. "Ce que je suis"
