Lady and the Tramp - Disney Pin
I have a soft spot for Lady and the Tramp. With all the much newer, flashier Disney films/releases, I think this one moves to the back of most people's minds. But, a movie with a Spaniel and a Schnauzer as the main characters? Couldn't hit me more on the nose in terms of casting. Well...I think that Lady is technically a Cocker Spaniel, but she's close enough to a King Charles that I consider her my own. And growing up we had two dogs when I was a small kind. Skipper and Max. Both Schnauzers. And both were barkers! Max was a good dog. Skipper, on the other hand, I don't remember much. He was gone when I was a little kid, so I don't remember the end of his life. Max was Vic's dog and he lived until she was a Freshman in college, so I have much fresher memories of him. Max was a gentle dog.
So, when we encountered a Disney Cast member with a Lady and the Tramp pin on their lanyard, I naturally steered one of the girls in that direction. Now, we're the proud owners of this beauty.
