Each year on National Pet Day, owners around the world are encouraged to come up with sweet ways to honor their pups. And what better way to celebrate our loyal four-legged friends than this short documentary paying tribute to our senior pets.
Internationally acclaimed director Sophy Romvari has done it again with her sweet documentary “In Dog Years.” Throughout the 10-minute-long film, devoted pet owners introduce and recognize their aging companions’ remarkable lives.
From arthritic canines to pups who wear sporty “doggles” to help their failing eyesight, this documentary is a beautiful reminder that, as our dogs age and their bodies deteriorate, they are still our most cherished pals and deserve our love.
“In Dog Years” also gives us a look into what it means to say goodbye to these pets who have been part of our families for years. But, as one interviewee puts it best, a dog’s time on this earth is perfectly proportioned so that they can “give off all the massive amounts of love they do,” and we couldn’t ask for anything more.
