Dakota is a loving, funny, stubborn, (loud!) 5-year-old Shetland Sheepdog gentleman from Farmington Hills, Michigan.

Dakota is a Native American word meaning ‘trusted friend,’ and his name won the popular vote in a naming contest for a canine character in the new Amy Shojai book, “Lost and Found!”

He loves eating bones, being brushed, modeling and playing with his ball, and he’s a great brother to Cody, the cat.

His mom, Caren Gittleman, says he can spell! (You’ll have to ask him about that…)

You can get to know the handsome and adored Dakota better on his mom’s Community Page, at his blog: Dakota’s Den, onFacebook and on Twitter @dakotasheltie.

Could Your Dog Be The Next “Benji!!??” Walden Media Announces Global Online Casting Call For Canine Star Of NEW ‘Benji’ MOVIE

Hi everyone! It’s Dakota and welcome to Fun Friday! Oh my dog hold on to your tail!  Have I ever got news for YOU!

Are you adorable?

Do you have movie-star potential? Knowing many of you as I do I would say that ABSOLUTELY you do!

Are you Mr. or Mrs.” Pawsonality” Plus?

Yeah?

I KNEW IT!

Remember Benji, the cute as a puppy’s nose doggy from the movie of the same name? Since some of you are still young pups you might not be completely familiar with Benji so check this out!

Benji and friend

About Benji

One of the biggest success stories of independent American cinema, the original 1974 Benji tells the story of a homeless but beloved small-town stray who, together with a female companion, helps to foil a kidnapping. The film was written, produced, financed and directed by commercial director Joe Camp, Jr., for less than $100,000.  Unable to find a distributor among the Hollywood studios, Joe and wife Carolyn Camp released the G-rated film themselves, starting with a two-screen engagement in Dallas. Benji instantly connected with moviegoers, and eventually became a worldwide hit, spawning a franchise that included four sequels, numerous television specials, a Saturday morning series, a syndicated comic strip and a multitude of merchandising deals.  Over 73 million people—more than half of them adults—saw Benji in movie theatres and more than a billion people worldwide have seen it on television. The franchise remains hugely successful to this day, selling millions of DVDs in the past few years alone. 

Want a chance to be the next Benji?

Well read on my friends!

Dog Owners and Shelter Staff are Invited to Post Pictures of their Benji Lookalikes on a Special Facebook Page for a Chance to Land their Pet the Role of a Lifetime!!!

Look at that face!

In the days of the original Benji search, Facebook and social media didn’t exist and Benji was “discovered” in a shelter in California. To celebrate the efforts of our shelters nationwide, in addition to the Facebook search, the filmmakers will also be scouring animal shelters as well as traditional animal talent agencies and trainers for dogs that have the looks, onscreen charisma and ability to take direction required to step into the film’s starring role.

Here’s your chance to be famous!! Sadly for me I’m outta luck. I don’t look like Benji, but if they ever do a re-make of Lassie, hint-hint, I’m a shoo-in!!

See what I mean?? I would have that job in no time!

 

If you have a face as adorable as this one, hey even I gotta admit this guy is too cute 

Benji in leaves

then submit a photo of your dog, or of any  dog that you  know, by

going to the official Benji The Movie Facebook Page www.Facebook.com/benjithemovie. Any dog (breed, size, gender, age) can be submitted – this includes personal pets and shelter dogs!

 Hey!! If any of my pals win…remember poor ‘ol Dakota! I’ll have my paw held out for a few bones , oh and free movie tickets, free buttered popcorn and a front row seat when I watch ya on the Silver Screen!!!   I want to be the first to get your “pawtograph!!”

Get Your Twitter Data-Generated Infographic!

Hi everyone! It’s Dakota! Boy oh boy do I ever have a bone to pick with my Mom! You see, I was reading a blog post on BlogPaws about how I could get my own Twitter Data-Generated Infographic and when I had my Mom put in my data…I was shocked and appalled!!

“TWITTER NOVICE”????

WHAT!!??

That’s because my Mom can’t get off her lazy butt and stop playing Words With Friends to help me tweet! Geeze!!

She has even been neglecting her other twitter handle @catchatcaren

There is no excuse for this!

I am an interesting Sheltie and this graphic says I am boring? Dull? Unenthusiastic? I have hardly any followers while Cody has over 2000 under Mom’s other handle?

This is a travesty!

I say Mom needs to get cracking and FAST! This is unacceptable!

Are you following me on Twitter? No? Why not!! C’mon and follow the wagging tail! You can find me @dakotasheltie Help me change this situation and FAST!! I’m NOT boring I tell ya, I’m NOT BORING!!

“FOOD OBSESSED???” That would be my brother, Cody and my bathroom-scale-challenged Mom!!

In the meantime…check out my hideously embarrassing report!
