Animals, like humans, can become attached, almost to the point of being unreasonable. My cat has a toy that’s all tattered and disgusting-looking due to his constant playing with it. There’s no chance either my wife or I will throw it out, since we have no desire to have our eyes clawed out if we did do something as dumb as that. We see a video here, which is actually a commercial, show a dog’s devotion to a toy.
We see a dog go through parts of a day, and in each part, there’s a doll that’s a bespectacled man with a sweater jacket. The man is smiling and the dog is smitten with it. He takes it with him everywhere, from walks to bath time to a visit at the vet. The veterinarian even pretends to listen to the doll’s heartbeat with her stethoscope. There’s obviously a reason why the dog is so attached to this toy… but why?
The dog finally lays down to rest, and the doll is sitting there in front of him as he goes to sleep. It turns out that he’s in a shelter. The next day, a man comes in who bears a remarkable resemblance to the doll. It turns out that the dog has been looking forward to being adopted – perhaps the man had come in before and given the pooch hope that he would be taken to a new home – hence his carrying the doll.
It’s a very effective commercial that ends with another dog laying in the shelter. She’s about to go to sleep and there’s a girl doll this time. A little girl probably visited her there and she’s hoping that she will get taken home by this little one. The commercial shows just how happy you can make a shelter dog by bringing them to a forever home. Hopefully, this raised a lot of awareness in the UK.
I have to give kudos to the people who came up with this idea. It’s not overly schmaltzy or overwrought. What did you think? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments. Also, please “Like” us on Facebook.
