My dogmail is usually flooded with forward messages from my furry friends. Yesterday while I was checking my inbox, amidst the milieu of mails with subjects like “Crash course on how to threaten a cat”, “What annoys a cat the most” etcetera, there was a mail from Gucci(the one who keeps Runa as his roomy) It read about how dogs are better than Women.
Patience, my male chauvinist friends, since dogs don’t have a biased gene, the second part of the mail obviously explores the issue as to how dogs are better than Men. (Thanks for the cheers ladies)

Now, with the power vested in me by the Canine central, I hereby read my dictum, from Part 1 and 2 we have come to the conclusion that
Dogs > women… (A)
& dogs are better than men… (B)
From equations A and B, we have
Dogs> men + women
Dogs > human beings
Who said dogs don’t know mathematics?
PS Read it somewhere, Men are like dogs. They keep coming back…….. Women are like cats. Yell at a cat once…they’re gone.
For an academically challenged canine like me, the cloistered life of books isn’t befitted. The other day, Calvy was too busy to play frisbee with me, browsing through his MBA course ware with eyes darted at the page at one instant and on the window at the other; waywardly his retina navigated behind his spectacles…so much for enacting intelligence:)
Dog grins are hard to enshroud, you’d know if you were a dog. Anyway, when he caught me mocking him, he nuzzled in a couch and put off his ‘intelligent glasses’ on the table. With an air of wizardly wand movement he asked me,”Well, what do you think of advertisements? “
“Ahem! Well…It’s promotion of some product or service”, I said.
“…and usually paid for”, he added.
Now that his ego was satisfied, he was back to his notes and devoid of his playtime, the professor in me delved in the pensive cocoon and recollected some of the most cherished commercials I had ever been subjected to. Naturally,all of them had one thing in common…dogs:)
So here’s presenting the succeeding entry in the Dogged reviews…the TV Commercials!
Well, there is no dearth of talent and wits when it comes to copywriters having dogs in their artwork, yet for the sake of succinctness in the post, I’ve taken the liberty of choosing four. However in the coming posts I’d again reiterate on the idea.
So, here’s presenting the TVC with pups in a starring role…
First we have the amazing campaign by dog food makers Pedigree wherein they embark on a pledge to help a shelter dog get adopted each time their product is bought and they sign off with ‘Dogs Rule’ . Though all the commercials under this campaign were high on emotion yet here are the dog’s pick…
…they say that hope and a little prayer never get unanswered so was true for Echo,here he gets adopted:)
Closer home, in India, the suiting majors Raymonds showed with their commercial that the complete man sports a softer side too.
The Mobile service providers Hutch(now known as Vodafone) build their brand in India riding on the back of a pug. The amazingly cute and unforgettable campaign had many of the master pieces yet the following commercial and the accompanying soundtrack is awesome!
Coming to terms with my momentary lewd conscience, I can’t help but leave you with something to feel light about after the emotional drive.
What? The aforementioned four TVC are already done with, well…I lied…here’s the fourth:)
Season’s greetings and a happy new year fellas:)
…till we meet again,here’s yoo-hoo from the Dogville!
The plight of dog folk in Korea is not a new newsbyte and yet no significant measures have been made to take care of the same. Time and again hue and cry have been raised by the pet lovers and advocates of animal rights over the deplorable condition of animals in states of Korea and China. The activists are gravely concerned over the repeated ill-treatment of animals in Korea and so am I.
It’s an appeal to my human friends that since ‘International Day of Action for Dogs and Cats in Korea’ is on July 14, 2009,kindly take this oath to care for animal rights, join ‘In Defense of Animals’ …I aren’t asking you to turn vegetarian overnight but would it hurt if you raise your voice atleast once when you see someone smacking a street dog in the shed or would it be a herculean effort if you would kindly put some water for a thirsty canine in a midsummer noon?
In Defense of Animals (IDA) will again be co-sponsoring this worldwide event to stop the terrible suffering these animals endure. IDA is working with the South Korean animal protection organizations Coexistence for Animal Rights on Earth (CARE) and Korean Animal Rights Advocates (KARA) to end the brutal slaughter of dogs and cats for human consumption. Forced to live in tiny, filthy cages and killed in unimaginably cruel ways, they deserve a voice. I understand that’s its not possible for everyone of us to be there at US Embassy for the event but wherever you are please take out a brief moment from your strict schedules and think for the canines & cats suffering in Korea.
May peace (…& sanity) prevail!
