Heh. A worthwhile slyt if there was one. Was the hero dog some sort of psychic?

And the floor is a bit hot so they jump...

It looked like he might have had a magic booze bottle... Is this some kind of critique of prohibition?

I did not think my day would involve attempted dog rape and fedoras, but sometimes life just throws you a curve ball like that.

Whoa. Dogs in clothes, yet so much more.

This was really an interesting take on the power of suggestion. Intellectually, it's totally clear these are trained dogs in costumes and on sets with a human-voiced soundtrack. Yet at moments in the drama I caught my mind totally interpreting it as a straight-on story. The trappings made it convincing to a surprising degree.

Also, I prefer not to think of what they had to do to get the dogs to do those actions and facial expressions.

Them dogs done got me beat in terms of dressing well, the lifestyle they enjoy and many other such things.

Fuck them . . . deeply.

You high-livin' dogs: eat shit and die, you pretentious mutts. You think you got it bad? Hah! Want some kibbles and bits now, you little shit-gobbling bastards?

I shouldn't watch such films. I'll shut the fuck up now.

Seriously though, this is going to crack my wife up - it's just the thing that gets her to giggling her ass off.

Well done.

When the black dog started laughing maniacally, I lost it.

When the hero dog burst in I must say that I was surprised by the... ahem... position that the dogs were in in the bed. It just goes to show that one should never assume that just because people are dogs they... oh never mind.

SBF Seeks Male companionship, ethnicity unimportant. I'm a svelte good looking girl who LOVES to play. I love: long walks in the woods, hunting, camping, riding in your pickup truck, fishing trips, cozy winter nights spent lying by the fire. Candlelight dinners will have me eating out of your hand. Rub me the right way and watch me respond. I'll be at the front door when you get home from work, wearing only what nature gave me. Kiss me and I'm yours. Call 555-2121 and ask for Daisy.

That sinister laughter from the would-be rapist dog is going to haunt me for quite some time.

Okay, evil laughter face was hilarious.

Doggie rape scene, on the other hand? Kinda disturbing.

No ^Maybe some animals were harmed during the filming of this production, ^who wants to know?

Dang, I enjoyed that way too much.

From now on I'll keep some booze by my side at all times so I'll know when a puppy needs help.

I often miss the sophistication and class of the older generations.

The 1930's was just such a weird time for film. Here's exhibit B.

In case no one's seen Un Chien Andalou, here's your chance.

And I thought today's talking dog movies (Air Bud) were disturbing.

Stop Anthropomorphizing Me

"Say, I've got an idea. Why don't we just get it all out of our systems right now? On the count of three, let's all have a hearty laugh over the hilarious incongruity of a dog in an astronaut's suit, and then we can sigh, shake our heads silently at one another, and get back to you being the grand expression of evolution, and me being the thing that eats pizza out of the garbage.

Unless you're doing that too, now"
