My Dog Skip' is an memoir or informal autobiography by Willie Morris centering on his boyhood and coming of age in Mississippi, and focusing particularly on his relationship with Skip, his Fox Terrier.

It was made into a well-received low budget film in 2000, a "sleeper", starring Frankie Munoz, Kevin Bacon and Diane Ladd.

In the filmed version, Jack Russell Terriers were used instead of modern Fox Terriers. Enzo, played Skip; his more famous real-life sire Moose played the aging Skip in the same film.
