Yes it sure can be. I have to be careful as to what rescue videos I watch, because if the animal doesn't make it I can get real sad.


We didn't see a lot of disney animal movies as kids because so often the animal died.

My wife won't watch Old Yeller again, once was enough and that was many years ago.

My hubby and I watched this movie on Netflix yesterday called, Synchronic. I had to get up and leave because he put his dog in danger in the movie and then lost him!!! The movie gets a one star to no stars from me because of that.

My other pet peeve (no pun intended) with dog movies is that they always end with a litter of puppies. It's OK that my dog died because before he died he got out and knocked up some female and now I have 6-8 puppies to take his place.

One of my favorite dog movies is the first K-9 with Jim Belushi. No puppies at the end (they waited for the sequel to have puppies).

I also hate the "found a cat, give it milk" standard in movies.

On a side note, I make all my dogs watch an episode of the 80s tv show Forever Knight. In the episode, a seeing eye dog gets bit by a vampire and turns into a vampire dog. His owner used to fly helicopters until she went blind. The good vampire hero is determined to stake the dog because a loose vampire dog is worse than a rabid one. The dog escapes him and runs back home. You hear the owner scream. The next scene is dog and owner standing in the park just after sunset and they fly off together.

I always tell my dogs that this is what a good dog is all about. [emoticon]

Great story!

I've always believed that animals have more empathy than they've been given credit for.
Recently a study determined that dogs can hold grudges. I told that to a friend and she said "well duh!". Years ago, she had barked back at my Bat-dog - Bat-dog held that grudge for years and it took Aunt C a lot of hard work to be forgiven.

Which breed is he? My dad's akita woke my niece up when an outlet in her room started sparking during the night.


I don't remember the breed.He has a double coat or fur. His tail is in loop over rear of his back. He's a bit fat but I would say normal weight
is 40 lb. He has black and white on muzzle and ears and stockings. Body color is not tawny but a bit paler. Can't let him out without a leash as he will go hunting and it may be a long time before he comes back.

Dakota passed in 16 I think. On one occasion I looked up and h was coming from the rear doors, someone had come in, and headed for where his bed was. heart jumped.
Not too many days ago SIL came n front door and right behind him Dakota headed for where his bed had been.In 72 years I have seen many things and keep most of them to myself. It's hard seeing him and missing him. Imagination when not thinking of him?

That's pretty typical for the Japanese breeds. There are several breeds about that size that are not common in the states. All are pretty similar in temperament with the akita and the small shiba.

Some things are not meant to be explained. He's just telling you he misses you too.
