Some people really love their dogs. So why not express that love simultaneously with one's love for romance movies? Well, one inventive fellow did just that, making a sweet-faced dog named Wrigley his ingénue for a wide range of just-for-fun movie recreations, like this steamy moment from The Notebook.
People tipped us to movie/dog lover Chris Naka's goofy pictures. Naka had posted the series on Imgur where he explained Wrigley is not actually his dog but his boss's. Thankfully, Naka's unnamed boss has a great sense of humor and has been game to allow her pup to participate in these playful re-enactments. One impromptu photo led to more, mostly for the staff's lunchtime amusement at their Chicago office. Naka writes:
"My boss brings her dog Wrigley to work every day, and for the past month we've been reenacting romance scenes from movies. It all started with a stupid Titanic photo, but things escalated quickly..."
Here's the Titanic shot that launched this beautiful partnership. Naka fills in for Leonardo DiCaprio, and Wrigley takes over for Kate Winslet.
Slightly more involved is this Hunger Games recreation, which has Naka casually cosplaying as Peeta.
A little trickier to pull off is that memorable half-masked kiss from 2002's Spider-Man.
In this shot, you've got Wrigley filling in for Demi Moore in Ghost and nailing her come hither stare.
While we're at it, why not also recreate another Patrick Swayze classic Dirty Dancing?
Don't waste that pretty pink doggy dress! Doesn't your heart flutter at this version of 16 Candles with Wrigley stepping into the Molly Ringwald's role?
Or top Wrigley with a cowboy hat and boom: Brokeback Mountain. "I wish I knew how to quit you!"
And lastly, my personal favorite: The Graduate. Here Wrigley's furry paw stands in for Anne Bancroft's sultry stockinged leg.
Here's hoping Wrigley and Naka keep their collaboration coming. What movie scenes would you like to see them recreate? Tell us in the comments section below.
