I absolutely LOVED Second Chance Dogs by the ASPCA. I was just searching around to see if they had a new one out yet. I’m hoping they do another one. I’m watching A Dog’s Life now, I just started that one. I heard about another one called Pet Fooled which addresses pet food manufacturing. I heard it was on Netflix but I can’t find it yet. Thanks for these reco’s, I’ll look for the other two, they sound great. We’re getting a snow storm tomorrow so it’s a good opportunity!
Love & Biscuits,
Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them

Wow, gotta watch some of these! Netflix and curl up with the furbaby xx
** I’m waiting for the new movie “GOD’S BEST FRIEND” released 5-1-2018 to stream on Netflix. Looks good, thanks for this list.
The Champions is one of the best documentaries on any subject I’ve ever seen. Challenge yourself to watch it without crying – just try. It’s a truly heroic film, and a much-needed reminder that for every heartless psychopath in the world that thinks it’s entertaining to watch dogs – dogs! for God’s sake – fight to the death, there are many more who give of themselves, selflessly, to ensure that each four-legged friend gets the chance in life that all dogs deserve: to be a proud and much-loved member of a human “pack.” Treat yourself today!
