What could be better than a film about dogs, zombies and friendship? Nothing, I tell you. Nothing!
After being abandoned during a zombie apocalypse, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Stanley stops at nothing to get back to his person, a little boy with a missing shoe.
I can’t get enough of this delightful (and sometimes scary) short film by John Cody Kim, a student at California Institute of the Arts who clearly knows about the important relationship between dogs and their humans. The charming animation is comical and endearing. Kim really captures the movements and emotions of this lovable little dog.
Warning: Although this cartoon is adorable, it may not be appropriate for younger audiences.
Corgis are well known for their intelligence and vigilant nature. They make excellent family companions and watchdog.
Terrific for a person who:
- Is looking for a dog to ace his obedience class.
- Wants a dog built for the job of watching.
- Adores the idea of an “enchanted” (as well as enchanting) dog breed.
Think twice if you’re a person who:
- Finds listening to any dog barking a bitter pill to swallow.
- Gives no brownie points to a dog that bosses or herds his other pets around.
- Relies on a tail to know what the dog’s feeling (Pembrokes have docked tails).
And just because I can’t get enough of Stanley, here’s his video debut from a time before the zombies came to town.
