Happy Thursday and a very happy International Dog Day, everyone! To celebrate, Disney just announced the return of one of our favorite on screen doggos: Dug from Pixar’s Up.

That’s right, Dug is coming back for his own Disney+ series, Dug Days. It will include five Pixar shorts exploring the misadventures of the pup whose high-tech collar translates his thoughts into speech. 

Check out the trailer for Dug Days below:

The series will bring back Bob Peterson as the voice of Dug. But Peterson is also a screenwriter. He wrote and co-directed the Oscar-winner Up, and he also wrote and directed Dug Days. Obviously, Peterson really understands how much we all love Dug.

“Dug is pure of heart—he’s a good soul. I think people enjoy that part of Dug,” said Peterson. “Plus, people love their dogs. We’ve gone to great lengths to include truth in dog behavior, so they see their own dogs in Dug.” 

Peterson also said coming up with fun adventures for Dug was pretty easy.

“Everything is new, and he’s excited about all of it,” he said. “But the smallest things can distract Dug, never mind an actual squirrel.”

(Yes, according to the trailer, the squirrel is a prominent character.)

All five Dug Days shorts arrive on Disney+ September 1.
