We've all had dogs that were so human, we swear they could talk. And they certainly understood every word we said. I had a Scottie dog named Maggie who absolutely loved aged cheddar cheese. It got to the point where we actually had to spell the word.
"Would you like a c-h-e-e-s-e sandwich?"
However, Maggie learned to spell.
Yesterday I saw the most beautiful movie I have ever seen. Ever... Yes, it was. It was done by Pixar, it was 3-D, and it was wonderful. We have been looking for ways to cool off, so we have been spending a bit of time in air conditioned movie theatres during the hottest (100 degrees) part of the day. The Munchkins suggested a movie called "Up", and I have never seen a more visually beautiful movie. The 3-D glasses are not the red/green glasses of regular 3-D movies, but eyeglasses similar to sunglasses, and very comfortable to wear. Seeing a movie like this in three dimensions is breathtaking. When the audience arrived at Paradise Falls in South America, I could actually hear everyone in the theatre *gasp*.
My favorite character was Dug the talking dog. If you've ever imagined what your dog would say if he could actually talk, that's Dug.
"I am Dug; I have just met you, and I love you..."
Here is a wonderful clip of Dug the Dog, and here is the trailer for the movie. If you're looking for somewhere to keep cool, or just for an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours, please do check out this movie -- in the theatres with the 3-D glasses. You will be gobsmacked. And you will fall in love with Dug.
