Dug's Special Mission was such an adorable little short film. It seemed shorter than most Pixar shorts, but I'm sure it will have most people going "awww" over Dug's utter innocence.

I loved this short! It's pretty short, I agree, but great nonetheless. There's some stuff in there I didn't expect, but I agree with DisneyGuy, it really shows how incredibly innocent and lovable Dug is, it's super adorable. Props to Ronnie for this short. I like how the end fits with the movie too. Very cool.

I hope they make another short with Dug to explain [spoil]if anything eventful happened after Dug left Carl. This was right after Kevin was kidnapped, where Carl snaps at Dug.[/spoil]

When I first watched up, I was a little confused when the alpha dog was talking about Dug and his "special mission" and "being very occupied, very occupied indeed, haha....". Then when the movie was over, I clicked on the bonus features and watched the short of Dug. Then I was like, AH HA! That's what it was about! I'm glad Pixar fills in most of those fender-itching details.

My view on the little inconsistency (Spoiler tagged)

[spoiler]My guess with Alpha's voice being squeaky during the short and the dogs not noticing it could be that the the other dogs didn't really register it. After all, they are dogs and while they may be good, they could've just have not noticed Alpha's voice until that moment in the movie, while Muntz could've been aware of it most of the time.[/spoiler]
I've seen UP in 3D. An excellent adventure.

What that makes me think of is the dog behaviorist talking in the Blu-Ray featurette about the (retriever-type) dog having no short term memory - he was just in the garden yesterday, and today it's like he's never seen it before! Maybe [spoil]"Hey, Alpha, your voice sounds funny!"[/spoil] is one of those jokes that just never gets old. :wink:

I thought it was a bit to short for me, but it was funny and the animation was good. So I liked it but not my favorite Pxar short.

I personally found it to be the most lacking of the Pixar shorts. I enjoyed it, but I guess the execution wasn't that original.

But the ending where [spoil]Dug sees that his birthday wish came true[/spoil] just always tug at my heartstrings.

This short is sweet because Dug is so adorable. :) I loved the ending best of all. And it explains why other dogs treat Dug like dirt and why Dug wants a master when he already has one. Also, I've always loved stories from other's perspective.

Both me and my sister found it strangely heartwarming. Especially when Dug says "this has been a bad birthday". :-(

I hadn't seen this since i first got the Blu-Ray. A screening of it at Pixar as part of the Cartoon Art Museum's day at Pixar made it even funnier.

I can't believe I had forgotten Alpha's "I will be getting you, Duuuugggg!!"

In my opinion, this is one of the funniest Pixar shorts. I always feel sorry for Dug!
