Louie, Dora, Rosy, and Snowbear
Acclaimed actress Tilda Swinton has four dogs, all Springer Spaniels, whose names are named Louie, Dora, Rosy, and Snowbear. Did you know these dogs are also acclaimed actors like their human? Dora, Rosy, and Snowbear appeared alongside Swinton in The Souvenir (2019) and The Souvenir Part II (2021). The trio shared the unofficial “Palm Dog” award at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival. The “Palm Dog” award has been a tradition at Cannes for 20 years since being invented by journalist Toby Rose. Louie has also made a name for himself in Hollywood, playing a notable role with his fur mom in The Eternal Daughter (2022). Swinton even considered getting a dog psychologist for Louie to help with his role. Louis almost appeared in The Souvenir Part II, but Swinton didn’t want that smaller role to distract from his big break in The Eternal Daughter. The four pups all appeared on screen together when they starred in a classical music video directed by their fur mom (pictured here).
