I Love doggie tales,
a good short fictional story
When I was a kid, my mother took my sister and I to the library a lot . We brought home piles of books. We discovered audio books too. On records not CD, there were no such things as CD's. At that time I am not sure they even had audiobooks on tape.
We would listen to the dog tale, Ginger Pye, by Eleanor Estes,
A wonderful dog story about Ginger Pye the dog and the Pye family.
we listened to that dog tale over and over.
And of course we watched and loved Lassie
our dog , Elric finding his way to his permanent home with us, is a good story.
I was a slow reader. Reading was hard for me. But once I got hooked, I wouldn't be able to put a book down
If a story can hook you, transport you to another world and you forget your own troubles,

a tale of conflicting happiness and roe defines a good tale.

Heart Of A Dog-movie
an extremely creative and inspiring 2015 film by Laurie Anderson a very talented writer, musician, multimedia artist and wife of now diseased Lou Reed - Watch Clip
Best In Show-Movie
another favorite, Best In Show, a very strange and funny satire about dog shows. Among the hilariously funny cast, Eugene Levy, christopher Guest, Parker Posey, Bob Balaban, Catherine O'hara, Jennifer Coolidge.You can tell the cast is having a great time while They make fun of dog shows. And how the dog owners are inspired by their dogs in various odd ways . Also show how dog can be comedians of sorts too.
What a hilarious scene with Parker Posey and Michael Hitchcock and their Wimer Weiner, getting ready for the dog show
Has a dog in it but Not a doggie tale -
but... great movie !
In one of my favorite movies called Smoke , where smoke isn't just from the cigars in the corner smoke shop, but also quite cleverly from smoke and mirrors. Here the story or tale is defined perfectly. William Hurt is a writer and Harvey Keitel is a storyteller together along with a great cast of characters they define the essence of a story and art of storytelling.
What is your story?
All doggie lovers have stories, Our lives are made up of collections of stories both good and bad, cheery and sad, with hopefully the occasional happy endings.
All our stories are different and similar and worth telling.
