This is why you shouldn't only buy robotic dogs.

Thank you for this.

Nice video, but every new YouTube link brings with it a link to the YouTube comment circus, wherein we weep at the state of the English language online. Some of those comments are strings of letters, certainly, but don't seem to be in *any* language.

These comments, if you accidentally read them, will negate even the most brilliant video, dumbing down the experience, lessening the intended impact.

If, indeed, there is any merit in a forum such as YouTube.

Well, this is a really great film. And I just used Youtube to watch it. So damn kids and Trouble in River City aside, i think there is rather obivously a great deal of merit in a forum such as Youtube.

I'm not watching this. I watched two minutes and I just know the dog is going to die and I don't feel like being depressed today.

It's profoundly sad, it is.

Reality has a maudlin bias.

I'm gonna go hug my dog now.

Excellent. Thanks for giving me something to get all misty about while I'm trying to study today.

Our four year old dog, Callie, died unexpectedly two months ago. We still haven't gotten over it. I watched this expecting some emotional catharsis, but there was none. The clip did make me grateful, however, that my 13 year old daughter didn't push me to the ground when she found out.

Wow. I'm kinda of embarrassed - totally cried in front of my girlfriend.

I like to think I'm tough when it comes to sad films, but one thing I can never ever get through dry-eyed is animal-related sadness. So, yeah, I was pretty much a sobby mess five seconds in.

Damn it. You made me cry. It's pretty pitiful to see a big skinned, tattooed, and all pierced up punk wiping tears away and calling for his dog. And then curled up with him on the floor with him getting a little snarley. Yep, were a perfect match, he's just as big a punk as I.

It WAS maudlin. And manipulative. And I totally cried. I love my damn dog.

Cried. Couldn't finish it. Can someone point me to something funny? I need the sad out of my head.

My dog was a certified Bad Dog (a pitbull mix abused in her puppydom), who bit everything she wasn't familiar with and had a propensity towards gacking up dog-loogies in my shoes, but nothing has been the same without her. I miss her silly square head and chipped-up ears, and dog-loogies weren't so bad, in retrospect.

There is sorrow enough in the natural way
From men and women to fill our day;
And when we are certain of sorrow in store,
Why do we always arrange for more?
Brothers and sisters I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.

-- Rudyard Kipling

Okay, did ya HAVE to post this after I just took a road trip to Carmel and spent an entire morning watching my kickass dog run adorably spastic, blissful circles in the sand on the beach? And when now that I'm home she's all curled up next to me with her neck draped over my leg? 'Cuz my throat hurts from crying now. Dammit.
When she dies it's gonna just plain suck. Best. Puppy. Evar.
