Monster of the Day #1059

Moose was the dog that played the more traditional werewolf who bit Lawrence Talbot in The Wolf Man. (Meaning Moose was playing Bela Lugosi.) Chaney loved the dog and became his owner.

Sadly, Moose died during the production of Universal’s Cobra Woman when he was run over by a truck.

    Awwww…some. Nice doggie!

    I especially like the one where Lon’s trying to go over the script and Moose is “Later, man, I have more pressing needs!”

    When he was negotiating to buy Moose I wonder if he said something like: Just what I always wanted. My own little puppy dog. I will hug him and pet him and squeeze him . . .

    What a sweet-tempered pooch Moose looks like. I love the shot of him looking at the script and snarling. Maybe he’s annoyed at playing only a bit part?

    You’d have to think Moose did some serious damage to the truck on his way out, though. He might have been chasing it for fun. Big dog. Damn shame we didn’t see him in more movies.

    I’m glad I looked at the pictures of the OOOOOOO BIG PUPPY YES!!! before reading the blurb. I don’t think I would’ve been able to enjoy them otherwise. :(
    Then again, having read it, I still want to coo at them, so I guess I’m okay.

    *sniffle* Is it a little dusty in here?

    Aw, such a sweet dog!
