One of the best "Our Gang" films from the late-silent era
30 September 2003 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Poor Pete the Pup. He wants to hang himself because his master, Joe, has given up playing with him and going fishing for the love of a girl. A dog friend of Pete's stops him in the nick of time, and in flashback Pete tells him of his sorrows; Pete becomes a drunkard and is chased away by Joe. The last straw comes when another dog knocks Joe's sweetheart into a lake and Pete is blamed for it. Will Pete carry through with his suicide or will Joe apologize?

Full of clever humor and situations, "Dog Heaven" is one of the best of the late-silent "Our Gang" comedies (a period lasting roughly from 1927 to 1929). Pete the Pup proves a fine animal actor; his facial expressions convey emotions seldom found in other animal actors, especially when playing drunk!

That said, at times it appears as if Pete is really hanging from his neck! There may have been an invisible wire aiding his support, but the manipulation here is a little unsettling. All in all, however, watch "Dog heaven" for good laughs and a good canine performance. 9 out of 10.
