I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Red Dog - The Movie



Based on the book by Louis de Bernières, the movie, "Red Dog," is the legendary true story of the Red Dog who united a disparate local community while roaming the Australian outback in search of his long lost master.



Koko, an Australian Kelpie, beat out the competition for the role. The video below, demonstrates Koko's worthy talents.



Although I can't find a release date for this movie, it premiered in LA, recently.


You can follow Koko on Facebook.

ROO!!! XOX!!! It's great to see you back in blog land. It helps that Stumpy already has a fan club!

dogsmom said...

Well of course Stumpy has a fan club. All she needs is a regular paycheck.
I don't usually go out to movies, but I may make an exception.

That's one great actor of a dog! Probably a pretty good story too! (Hope you don't get this comment twice~ I'm a dipnoid sometimes.

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

Susan, Your dipnoid tendancies seem to be under control, for the moment! I'm looking forward to reading the book. I probably won't get to see the movie until it's out on video.
