Me and bulldogs, what can I say. I’ve always loved the breed, even as a toddler. My mother shares stories of me sitting for hours with the neighbor’s bulldog Sister, playing, piling, and tugging on the copious folds and flaps of torso and mug on this very sweet and patient bully. Buddy would attest old habits die hard.
I’ve enjoyed the company of some stellar pooches–all rescues, all adorable, all loving, and always underfoot. From Maggie to Gracie to Boz and now Buddy, bulldogs have always held a place in my heart; filling it regularly with laughter, love and companionship.
My friend Julie Sotomura of Furry Friend Films creates films as loving keepsakes, memorializing people and their pets, or more like, pets and their people. Buddy and I were honored that Julie asked us to be the subjects of her latest endeavor. Buddy tells me it’s his favorite film, next Lady and the Tramp, Turner and Hooch, and Lassie Come Home.
Buddy and Tom: The Movie
Julie certainly has a heartfelt and powerful talent here. I want to help her get the word out by sharing some of her films, so seamlessly created to honor the four-legged gifts in our lives. Check out her website at www.FurryFriendFilms.com.
Julie also made this wonderful film about Vashon Island Pet Protectors (VIPP) for their annual fundraiser. Grab the tissues.
