What has four legs, floppy ears and the ability to speak? Dug, the underdog star of Pixar’s hit animated flick Up. The plush version of this cuddly creature – available for $19.50 at the Disney Store – shares what’s on his mind thanks to a battery-operated collar around his neck. Though he may not be able to slobber all over you – which may be a good thing! – this Dug just wants to be loved. Among his adorable phrases: ‘My name is Dug. I have just met you and I love you.”

Stuffed versions of the film’s other furry stars, including Alpha, Beta and Gamma, are available on the Disney Store’s site for $19.50, too, as well as a larger Dug, available for $39.50.
