Homeless movie star fetches up in East Sussex

 

Available for adoption: um, this dog.

Starred in The Prisoner of Azkaban (a film I saw but totally do not recall) as Gary Oldman’s fursona. He also did some TV shows in the UK. Now he’s too old to work and his stuntman owner travels too much to take care of him.

Personally, I think that’s pretty shitty. If you take on a dog — working dog or pet — you have a life-long obligation.

On the other hand, maybe he comes with a nice little nest-egg from his Hollywood days and they’re afraid to say so for fear of drawing the wrong kind of applicants.

Anyhow, free dog!

What? Oh, not us. We’re confirmed cat people.

In the Sylvester’s Granny sense, not the Nastassia Kinski sense.

Don’t tell me, you were drunk when you watched it, right?

I like big dogs like Alsatians and Labradors. Terriers are cool but big hairy beasts like this are more fun. Shame whoever takes them on will probably only get to enjoy their company for a few years. Still, it was ever thus.

I expect someone will find a home for him fairly soon, there are a lot of HP fanatics out there who would, I’m sure. :)

OOOH, I’d adopt that dog. It might have essence of Oldman on him. Better yet, is Gary Oldman up for adoption?

Too bad. That scene at the end with Nastasia Kinsky tied to the bed was hot as hell….

Heh. You said ‘fursona’. When do the fursuits come out?

Aw, I bet that BerryDog and Porridge have a new home by now. I like old dogs—especially smart, well-trained old dogs. I’d take him in a heartbeat.

I was pleased to see a majority of the comments in the local paper article on this felt the same.

I had a thing for Ms. Kinski after I saw that movie.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
