Mancat Monday: The Golden Collar Awards and Treasure Buddies and an Award

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!

Happy Monday everyone, and it looks like a busy week coming up.  You know I love my doggie friends so I wanted to share some doggie information with you today.

First, 2011 has been the Year of the Dog in movies and TV, and to honor those dogs who have given the best performances in front of the camera this year, Dog New Daily’s, 1st Annual Golden Collar Awards™ will be held in Los Angeles on Monday, February 13 at a celebrity-filled gala held at the Hotel Palomar in Westwood/Los Angeles, a dog-friendly Kimpton Hotel.

The press conference announcing the nominees will be held on Wednesday, January 18 at the luxurious D PET Hotel in Hollywood and my Dad was invited to attend. Unfortunately, since it is clear across the country he won’t be able to make it, but we can’t wait to see who gets nominated.

Secondly, Walt Disney Studios is getting ready to release a fun new movie…

Treasure BuddiesHere is part of what the press release had to say:

“On January 31, 2012, The Walt Disney Studios proudly unleashes Treasure Buddies, an all-new live action feature for the whole family on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital. The 6th film in the Buddies franchise stars everyone’s favorite talking canine superstars Rosebud, B-Dawg, Budderball, Buddha and Mudbud, as the pup pack journeys to mysterious Egypt in search of the greatest treasure known to animalkind, the legendary Cat’s Eye jewel, from the lost treasure of Cleocatra! Danger lurks around every secret sphinx, cryptic crypt and puzzling pyramid as Ubasti, a devious cat, schemes to possess the mystical jewel and use its powerful energy to rid the planet of all dogs! With help from new lovable friends Cammy, a baby camel – and a mischievous monkey named Babi – the gang and their new friends avoid booby traps, solve puzzles and explore a mysterious tomb in their most exciting and challenging adventure yet.

 Treasure Buddies tail wagging adventure debuts across North America as an all-new 2-Disc Blu-ray™Combo Pack (Blu-ray + DVD), 1-Disc DVD and Standard Definition and High Definition Digital on January 31, 2012.”

Another fun thing is the dog training series that Disney is putting together! The series features the trainer who works with the Buddies on set! Here is the link to the promo for the training videos. Disney plans to release 1 video each week.

Each of the Buddies, along with April Mackin, a trainer at Birds & Animals Unlimited, the company that has trained the Buddies on several of their films, will be featured in the series. Make sure to check the site each week for tips on dog training and examples of how the trainers prepare the Buddies to perform on set!  The dog training video series can also be viewed on the Buddies Face Book page at

Finally, I would love to give a big Thank You to my friends at Repositório da Marilia for sharing such a wonderful award with me.

That sure does sound like a great movie. We will have to save our green papers so we can get it. It will be fun to see how they train the doggies too. The whole thing sounds terrific. Too bad you couldn ‘t go Brian but it would be a long trip for a kitty.

Firstly, congratulations on your awardie! You totally deserve it!

And secondly, thank for having a Dog Day on your bloggie today. That was fun! I bet I already know who’s gonna win the Best Pawformance by a Doggie, though. It’s that little JRT named Uggie that was in that movie called “The Artist.” He’s been getting all the buzz…or should I say, the BARK!

We live in Los Angeles, and my human went to the Palomar Hotel last year for a Best Friends Adoption Event called the aCATemy awards. It’s awesome how this hotel walks its talk when it comes to being pet friendly!
