An exuberant dog sees a "guide dog wanted" poster in a store front, and he applies. He shows off his muscles, he pantomimes his skills, he gets the job. He loves the work, but when things go awry, how many chances will he get? And can he learn from his mistakes? Is enthusiasm enough in the world of work? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

This Cartoon Just Blew Me Away!
26 July 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This is one of wackiest and greatest cartoons I have ever seen. It almost goes beyond description because the artwork and the story are so crazy, you literally have to see this to appreciate it. I spent most of the five-plus minutes either with my jaw dropped or laughing out loud at what was seeing. I understand this is a sequel, sort of, to "Guard Dog." Oh, man, it that is anywhere as good as this, I'd love to see it.

This dog is one of the funniest character I have ever seen on film: animated or live-action. He sees a "Help Wanted: Guide Dog" sign in a window, applies for the job and unbelievable things occur with the people he tries to help.

Just take my word for it: this is fantastic. I saw it on The DVD "A Collection of 2006 Academy Award Nominated Short Films." The ironic thing is that this wasn't nominated; it was a bonus feature on the disc.....and it was better than ANY of the nominated films of either category (animated or live-action.)

This is the only cartoon I have EVER watched three times in one day.
