Dogs Names That Start with Mu in Pop Culture
Most likely everyone has heard about the famous singer, Beyoncé, at one point or other in their life. But, it may not be as well known that she has an adorable little dog by the name of Munchie. In fact, Munchie himself had a brief time in the spotlight when he and his master appeared on the front cover of Animal Fair Magazine. Thanks to this winter edition of the popular magazine, Munchie was actually declared America's Most Eligible pet; and as can be imagined, that title brought in a lot of phone calls with requests to have other dogs set up with the adorable pooch. Munchie is a cute Shih Tzu and at the time of the magazine shoot, he was one and a half years old. Beyoncé commented on Munchie's personality saying that he loves to give cuddles by climbing onto your lap for a quick kiss and then settling in under your chin for a hug. It's not hard to see why so many people would love Munchie, what with his owner being the famous Beyoncé, but his super sweet personality and big brown eyes are enough to rope you in as well. And that is what makes him such a spotlight dog!
The second "Mu" spotlight dog we have to discuss today is Murray, the lovable pooch from the show Mad About You (September 23, 1992 to May 24, 1999). This character is played by the 9-year-old Collie mix, Maui. Maui appears to have the biggest appearance of a Collie, weighing slightly more than the average Border Collie. His coat is a beautiful golden color, and while some purebred Border Collie's can be born with that color, most people tend to think that it is from a cross with a Retriever somewhere down the line. Whatever the case may be, there is no doubt that Murray (aka Maui) is one beautiful dog! In the show, Murray was found by one of the lead characters, Paul. While out walking Murray one day, Paul met a woman who he would then go on to marry by the name of Jamie. It is this introduction that sets the show in motion and the entire plot of Mad About You is following the couple through hilarious minor issues, and a few major ones. Through it all, Murray is there; chasing an invisible mouse all while being loyal, endearing, and very laid back (if not a bit thick-headed from time to time). He was twice voted the most popular dog in showbiz by the readers of TV Guide.
