Beautiful pictures of rescue dogs who now live in loving homes make for a video with a high CQ (Cute Quotient.) And the fact that it is set to the Queen song “You’re My Best Friend” makes it captivating. I wasted an embarrassing amount of my precious writing time watching the entire video multiple times. I kept telling myself I had to know the video thoroughly before writing about it, but the truth is that I just liked watching it.
The Power of Rescue Groups
A feel-good video makes the caseBy Karen B. London PhD, December 2009, Updated July 2016
I love knowing that these are dogs who, though once without a family, are now cherished by the people who adopted them. Perhaps the best thing about the video is that it contains many before and after pictures. These pairs of photos allow you to see dogs in need of care and then see their well-groomed coats, healthy bodies and happy faces. My favorite pictures were of Dolly, Marco and Hotlips, but tons of others were charming, too.
Most of these dogs were fostered through Border Collie Rescue of Northern California, though that group was not involved in making the video. They currently have a playful, energetic dog named Mouse available for adoption to an active family. Check out his video on YouTube to see his story.
The video set to the Queen song video is thoroughly enjoyable and will make you feel good. It shows that rescue groups do terrific work getting so many great dogs into homes. And everyone familiar with rescue groups knows that they do it with small monetary budgets but with endless quantities of volunteer hours.
