 A Dog’s Story of Survival | We Don’t Deserve Dogs | A Dog Eases the Pain of Divorce | Dog Edition #14 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2189

If dogs represent the best of human qualities … and we assert they do … how, and when, do we need to become more human? A Dog’s Story of Survival For years Frankie lived on a hill above a suburban elementary school. All by himself, he survived by garbage picking after the last lunch bell rang. His scrounging paid off, but neighbors in the San Francisco suburb were worried about Frankie’s health. He evaded their attempts to catch him for a week, but eventually, was captured. At his veterinary appointment, the doctor found something that pointed to a ghastly past … one that made his life on the hill look pastoral by comparison. We Don’t Deserve Dogs Matthew Salleh and Rose Tucker are documentary filmmakers who like to form hypotheses and then test them on film. Their latest is We Don’t Deserve Dogs … and they offer as proof a series of snapshots and portraits from around the globe. We visit several different cultures and through their lens inhabit new beliefs and attitudes about the human-dog bond. Former child soldiers in Uganda cope with PTSD with the help of adopted dogs. A Pakistani woman invites a stray dog home and is shunned by her neighbors. A dog in Lima, Peru is celebrated with a lavish birthday party. A Dog Eases the Pain of Divorce Donna Dees was in the throes of planning the Million Mom March when her husband asked for a divorce. The timing could not have been worse … especially for their two young daughters. Hoping to soften the blow, the couple decided to give their girls a puppy along with the bad news. Little Daisy’s arrival distracted everyone from the divorce drama by forcing everyone to make adjustments and achieve balance. In their case, getting a dog was a puptastic solution to an age-old problem. The Hydrant Pam and Jim stop by the hydrant to sniff out the latest dog gossip, innuendo, jokes, and notes. This week, Busch wants your dog to be their Dog Brew Influencer. Also, it turns out Democrats and Republicans on the Hill have always agreed on one thing, after all. About A Dog’s Story of Survival Frankie is living his best life at home in Northern California. About Matthew Salleh and Rose Tucker Matthew Salleh and Rose Tucker are an Australian born, Brooklyn based documentary filmmaking duo. Their new documentary film, We Don't Deserve Dogs, is out now. We Don't Deserve Dogs is a contemplative odyssey across our planet, looking at the simple and extraordinary ways that dogs influence our daily lives. Former child soldiers in Uganda. The local pub in a Scottish town. A dog walker on the streets of Istanbul. A kaleidoscope of unconventional portraits from fascinating locations. People need dogs, and perhaps they need us, but what do humans do to deserve the unconditional love they provide? Watch the trailer, and rent or buy the movie from About Donna Dees Donna Dees, described in 2020 by Glamour Magazine as an “activist’s activist,” is the founder of the Million Mom March held on Mother’s Day 2000 — the largest protest against gun violence in US history until the more recent March for Our Lives. Her 2004 memoir and guidebook called “Looking for a Few Good Moms: How One Mom Rallied a Million Others Against the Gun Lobby” earned her the “Chutzpah Award” from Oprah. The book was also cited by The Atlantic in 2008 as one of the best books on female leadership.

We’re not the only ones obsessed with our dogs. Thieves, engineers, and behaviorists are, too. Dognappers Target French Bulldogs The brutal attack on Lady Gaga's dog walker during a dognapping caught our attention.
