Man's best friend? Maybe not, but a good pros and cons dog doc
30 June 2012 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

HBO always has some interesting documentary works on and this "One Nation Under Dog" was interesting. As I know many people are animal lovers some love their dog more than their spouse! I for one was never really a dog fan, I feel that many dogs are dangerous I always feared dog bites. As many cases around the country happened one in New Jersey was well documented with this film as clearly not all dogs are nice! Then you have the voice of animal rights as it's clearly been on the move in this country after the Michael Vick case. The film also showed the shelters that take care of dogs it's a life long work and many families become so attached that when they lose a dog they have a funeral just like they do for a family member! Overall this doc shows that dogs and people have become blended together to create a powerful force of love and attachment, still I say be careful and don't get dog bitten!
