HBO is airing a special tomorrow night 8pm central on the dog-human relationship. It will also expose the life of shelter dogs and kill factories that US shelters have become. I am going to sign up for HBO just to watch the program.

Thought you all might want a heads up.

I have windows media center but don't know how it works.

Terri, do like me. Sign up and record it then cancel your subscription.  Evil First I am going to call and see if they have free trial subscription. If so, I will go that route. The program has been 2 years in the making.

I don't want to do that. Our contract with Comcast/Xfinity is up soon. I don't want to add or subtract anything until it's up.
Pretty sure it will be available online sometime

OMG! The documentary was awesome! I sat in the floor with Kiva and Kaden sitting next to me. I hope the section on rescue and shelters makes an impact on people. They showed dogs being gassed and I got so upset I had to take a couple of xanax.  crying They also showed a Cairn that was owner surrendered. It broke my heart. I would lie down rail road tracks before I left one of the cairnadoes at a shelter.

I hope anyone who missed will get a chance to see it if it airs again.

I don't know that I want to see dogs being gassed, but I can see why they would include it.  Thanks for the warning!

Seeing the dogs gassed would hurt me for a long long time after watching it.  I hope it gets the message out to people who need to really understand it.

just reading that gave me chills.
I couldnt watch it...it would make me feel hopeless cuz I cant save them...I even have to turn off those ASPCA commercials cuz I get so sad seeing those little faces. I just want to take them all home with me. If i ever win the lottery I would buy a few acres and have an animal sancuary.

It's a good show. I got upset driving home thinking about the puppy mill and the gassing shelter. So, I took another xanax.  blush I can't go to shelters because I know I can't leave with one and it hurts to know they are left behind.

I cannot watch those commercials either.  We obviously have our hearts in the right place.  Now is it hitting people who need their hearts in the right place?
That is the question.

I believe the special is called dog nation?  I have HBO and i turned it on yesterday and watched the opening credits.  That was enough for me.  There is no way i could EVER watch this show. crying

You can never replace the dog that you lost in your heart~ you can only make your heart a little bit bigger to include a new one.
