Hidden Mickey: Man’s Best Friend and Mickey’s Too!

Well, as the saying goes, a dog is a man’s best friend. But in this case a dog might just be Mickey’s best friend too…….at least it is in the case of this playful Labrador-Catahoula pup, named Lily. It turns out Lily has a uniquely iconic marking on her fur that Disney fans like to refer to as a Hidden Mickey! So what’s a Hidden Mickey you ask? A Hidden Mickey is any everyday ordinary object that resembles that famous Mouse head that we all love. Whether it’s a fluffy cloud, a misshapen pancake, or a black spot on an adorable pup, if it resembles the shape of everyone’s favorite mouse, then it is a Hidden Mickey. My family and I make a habit of finding these little gems in our everyday life, but have never seen one as perfectly shaped, and adorably cute as the one on Lily the pup.

Lily lives in Florida with the Aguerre family, Francisco and Mejay, and their daughter Nicole, who are not only big Disney fans, but they all happen to be Cast Members at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando. When the family lost their beloved dog, a Pekingese-Poodle mix several months ago, they felt it was time to welcome a new four-legged friend into their family. They began looking at listings online and when they came across one that described a female pup having “unusual” markings, they knew they had found the perfect pup for them. It turned out those unusual markings were a perfect Mickey Mouse shaped spot on her lower back. And what better pet for this family of Disney lovers, than Lily, who the family named after Walt Disney’s wife, Lillian. And what better way to welcome Lily into the family than to set her up with her very own meet-and-greet with Mickey Mouse himself! Check out this video below to see Mickey and Lily get to know each other:
