Jock can roam my bushveld anytime!
10 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

Jock of the Bushveld is more than a story about a dog. "Jock" is a story a hero and there's nothing more endearing than a hero with four legs. OK so the scarf might be over the top, but if you were in his paws would you wear a collar or a scarf? When you get in touch with the flamboyant nature of Jock you'll be asking why he didn't wear cowboy boots. The story is an upliftingly human tale in an animal world. Jock is Hercules, the elephants are the Giants, the baboons are the harpies, the Lion - Zeus and of course, how could we forget the delectable warthog! This movie is about the indominatable spirit of a dog with sharp teeth and fashion sense, a character with the tenacity of the bushveld's predators and the loyalty that earnt his kind the title of our best friend. Oh Jock! You can roam my bushveld anytime!
