The Pixar animated comedy Up was released to theaters in 2009, and was an immediate commercial and critical success. The friendship between the elderly widower and the young, naive boy captured our hearts and taught us a lesson about life, coping with grief and friendship. To be honest, just thinking about the film brings tears to our eyes.
This Up-inspired costume is one of the sweetest things we’ve seen in a while, and the allusion to the beloved film is priceless. The dog probably has no idea what’s going on, but he doesn’t seem to be suffering – perhaps he knows that he’s a part of something bigger than him. We only hope he weighs enough so as not to be carried away by the balloons.
