London's Dog Walk Of Fame Honors our Favorite K9's

The Scoop: London's Dog Walk of Fame

As we were discussing our fave animals in film and TV, I discovered that London was way ahead of the game when it comes to honoring our favorite furry actors. London's Dog Walk of Fame, unveiled in November in the heart of Battersea Park, spotlights achievements by beloved animal actors. Founded by the Kennel Club and Sky Movies, the Dog Walk of Fame's goal is to honor the work and contributions of the world's scene-stealing pups of the silver screen.

Each year, the British public votes on a new four-legged star to induct into the walk of fame. Ian Lewis, Director of Sky Movies knows how important animals are to our lives, as well as film:

"Dogs were long-overdue a permanent celebration of their unique contribution to film history. The Dog Walk Of Fame will do just that. The first inductees into the Dog Walk of Fame - from Gromit to Lassie, Toto to Fang, share an indelible place in the hearts of film lovers of all ages.”

To see why this Walk of Fame is different from the one we know in Hollywood,

Instead of the well-known sidewalk stars they use in Hollywood, the Dog Walk will dedicate a bench donned with a commemorative plaque for everyone to enjoy while walking their own four-legged families. So far, honorees include Lassie, Toto from The Wizard of Oz, as well as Chance and Shadow from Homeward Bound (two of our personal faves) among others. The next inductee will be announced in November.
