BIOGRAPHICAL DETAILS: As John Grant says in his book, The Encyclopedia of Disney Animated Characters, "True love, they say, comes only once in a lifetime, but nobody ever told Pluto that." Fifi, Minnie Mouse's own pet Pekingese, was surely Pluto's first love, one which ultimately even resulted in puppies. However, somewhere along the way, Pluto's heart proved fickle. Even though Fifi is still around as is seen in"Pluto's Blue Note" (1947), after 1942 the cad seems to have only had eyes for Dinah. Dinah first appearance in film was in "The Sleepwalker" where she has a much darker pelt, and a more comedic physique (one that stretches and squashes as she walks). In this tale Pluto is fast asleep in his doghouse when the hungry Dinah sneaks up and steals his bone. Waking he chases her down and reclaims it. Later, once more asleep, Pluto sleepwalks to her own kennel and selflessly gives the bone back. Finally waking he finds the bone back in her clenches. Seeing his anger she meekly gives it back. In a fit of anger Pluto destroyes her doghouse only to discover she has a brood of puppies, and now he feel guilty. He not only gives her and her pups many bones, but when it starts to rain he gives up his own kennel to them for shelter. Pluto has fallen in love. Next we see Dinah again in "Canine Casanova" (1945). This time he must vie for her against Butch the Bulldog. Her next film is "In Dutch" (1946) where the two are now living in the Netherlands, and Pluto is a Milkman. The story is a mixture of "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" and "The Little Dutch Boy." As for "Pluto's Bule Note" (1947), both Dinah and Fifi, as well as a couple other female pooches, make a cameo as adoring fans of the Pluto turned crooner. In "Pluto's Heart Throb" (1950) Pluto and Butch once more contend for the love of Dinah. Just when it seems he's losing to brute strength, Dinah's timely rescue from drowning by Pluto wins him her heart. Finally in "Wonder Dog" (1950) Pluto tries to impress Dinah by emulating a circus hero, Prince the Wonder Dog. Once more, Butch and Pluto compete for Dinah attentions.
