Pet Adoption Videos that Don’t Make Me Want to Kill Myself 11/6

The latest two entries in this series are simple, short, and upbeat. Warning: They are followed by a picture with profane language, one that encapsulates why I started this series in the first place.

    The KY video would be “easy” to make – loved the changing names :). Keep the series coming – thank you!

    Thanks for sharing these! I confess, I tend not to look at adoption videos and simliar things, because they make me want to cut my wrists. I thought I was the only one and hid this shame.

    Hi Y’all,

  1. […] Edie Jarolim of the blog Will My Dog Hate Me? has apparently had enough of those adoption videos set to mournful music showing sad miserable dogs in shelters/pounds.
