Speaking of Brits...

I finally got around to seeing the latest installment of the James Bond franchise, Skyfall.  It would have been completely unremarkable except for these two scene-stealers: the insanely gorgeous French-Cambodian-Chinese actress, Bérénice Lim Marlohe


and this little guy by Royal Doulton, tragically sold out everywhere.

Jack, as he's known, sat on M's desk throughout much of the movie.  Turns out, he has a refined pedigree - in the 1940s, Royal Doulton made "Churchill" bulldogs as patriotic symbols.


Perhaps the original was a bit more charming, but this time around Jack has his own James Bond intro.


If you are in love, fear not.  Like James Bond, Jack will be back - in February 2013.

    1. The Merry Husband wasn't too impressed with the pug either. To his credit, though, he also claimed not to be impressed with the Bond Girl.

  2. She was a stunner.
    I don't get the love for British bulldogs either, do you know they are the most popular breed in the UK, that really surprised me.

    1. I didn't realize that. The perennial favorite in the U.S. is the Lab. My family had a Boston Terrier when I was a kid, so I've always had a soft spot for dogs with smooshed-in faces.
