I like this "canine comedies" as a silly documentary! (almost)
6 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This animation short, reminds me of M-G-M's Symphony In Slang, in each there were quite a few clichés & phrases, from beginning to end. I like the scenes of the Saint Bernard that did its rescue, the "Elvis-Dog", Sargeant Balko, the Bassett Hound that almost makes me think that it had the idea thinking that she might be Lassie, (but in a different breed)! PS: Do not forget "Charlie" the 50% of every breed he thought there may be, especially the idea of "Retrieving a Labrador", trying to calling it self more than 50% of a Labrador Retriever, just before being jerked out out of the short. Also, the dogs, of every breed chased the cat, "the bad boy" dropped in, from above the roof!
