‘If I Could Talk’: Short Film Imagines How Rescue Dogs Really Feel

by Editor's Pick

You can’t plan to fall in love; sometimes life-changing relationships begin with a chance encounter.

That’s what happens in If I Could Talk.

A man is jogging on a quiet country road when something catches his eye: a black plastic bag shaking in a shallow lake. Intrigued, the man scales an embankment and opens the bag. What — or, more accurately, who — he finds inside will change his life forever.

“I didn’t rescue my dog, my dog rescued me,” has become something of a cliché these days, but it’s a phrase I find myself thinking on a daily basis. Every once in a while, we find a short at LittleThings that hammers this powerful point home: dogs are angels on Earth.

Not much makes me tear up, but this had me reaching for the Kleenex. (Be prepared!)

Please SHARE this powerful dog perspective with all of your friends who love animals!

Credits: If I Could Talk is presented by Welling Films. Story by Mark Glavin and directed by Shawn Welling AXI.
