Disney released a poster and an inexplicable seven-second teaser (which originally aired during Oscar credits and you can watch below) for the I-can’t-believe-it’s-a-real-movie Old Dogs. If there’s one positive thing to take from this, it’s how far movie dogs have come as a society. Just a few years ago, a dog on a movie poster like this probably would’ve simply sneezed, or covered his eyes his with his paws when confronted with family hijinks. But this dog takes responsibility. With one simple gesture, he says “It’s okay, I’m part of the family now. I feel your pain and I want to help.” Looks like someone taught this pooch the most important trick in the book: empathy.
Haha, I love you, Patches.
