As much as I hate to start another canon spitstorm, there are inconsistencies. From Memory Alpha:
If it is canon, the wisdom of including of Archer is questionable at best. If it isn't canon, it's still a reference to a failed series. It would be best forgotten in this context.
That said, the article I read only referred to "the Admiral's dog," not "Archer's beagle."
Well I don't know exactly what the quote will be in the movie but that "failed series" is cannon and the quote you posted may not be because it was not seen on screen so I don't really see any canon argument here.
