My colleague Christina is a real animal lover and fan of the Orvis Dogs blog. Her desk is within shouting distance of mine, and she will often ask, “Are you gonna make me cry today?” The rescue posts are the ones that really get her. On Friday, she sent me a link to a website called “Does the Dog Die? The most important movie question,” which helps viewers know which movies will upset them.
I mean, if you know you’re going to watch Old Yeller, you’re prepared for the tragedy, but some films surprise you with very upsetting scenes of abuse or death. For instance, the classic comedy A Fish Called Wanda features the deaths of three dogs dogs.
“Does the Dog Die?” is a site you might want to bookmark for those nights when you’re watching something new and don’t want to end up reaching for the tissue box.
