Dogs have been starring in movie for nicely in excess of a century, when a Lassie-looking collie starred in the 1905 silent movie “Rescued By Rover,” which turned a cinema sensation. Not too long ago, the magazine “Dogster” did a review of pet dog-centric videos, and I have a bone to decide with their summary, probably mainly because it was prepared by a human and not a doggy.
Even though I agree with the creator that not all puppy videos get a paws up, the kinds that conclusion with the dog dying are unquestionably paws down on the dogometer. Do not even get me started off on “Where the Pink Fern Grows” and “Old Yeller.” Hardly ever permit your dog look at these films.
Classic Dramas this sort of as “Lassie Come Property,” “White Fang” and “Call of the Wild” were described as “films for canine purists who like no-nonsense, basic tales of loyalty, the pull of the excellent outdoors, beating good hurdles and personalized quests for id.” I have to say these classics are tricky to discredit but are actually challenging for canine to enjoy. And more recent “dogramas” (doggy dramas), like “Marley & Me,” are also of course created by people today who seem to be Okay with obtaining unhappy endings for the canine hero.
I can converse for all dogs in that we do ideal with the films geared towards a younger audience, classics these types of as “Homeward Bound,” “Turner & Hooch,” “Benji,” “Lady and Tramp,” etc. And, of class, the howl out loud, confident to come to be a basic, “The Mystery Daily life of Pets” (“a gang of sewer-dwelling animals led by a psychotic rabbit! A sausage factory sequence! This movie has it all — and absolutely everyone lives!”).
But the biggest oversight of this, and seriously any “best puppy films” list, is that they these Hollywood manufactured films simply just never do what Bow Wow Movie Festival do for pet dogs. None of these movies enable puppies really feel as appreciated, witnessed, acknowledged and honored the way that Bow Wow movies do.
When you get accomplished observing “One Hundred and One Dalmatians” you want to go get a cute Dalmatian pup to play with, which resulted in a substantial spike of Dalmatians in shelters just after the movie was produced for the reason that Dalmatians actually are not the finest loved ones canines, whilst right after looking at Bow Wow you want to go hug your amazing mutt, give them a large address and just take them out for a enjoyable-filled experience with you. You also come to feel sorry for any person who does not have a puppy in their lifetime and influence them that is seriously all they need to have to resolve their troubles.
