A Dog Living Film

DVD - 2018
Rate this:
Baxter and Me tells a story of my life through my dog companions. The film shows my daily dealings with big, brown, beautiful Baxter, a Labrador dog. I love everything about Baxter, except when he is barking right in my ear! I?ve lead a varied life as filmmaker, activist, teacher and dog trainer and I still do all this at 63. So why is my most affectionate relationship with a dog? What am I doing with a large wild animal in my kitchen and my bed? Do we really love dogs? Do they love us? Maybe this is how we all should live, in company with loving animals? This film gently observes this relationship through immersive poetic images, teamed with music and song. My personal narration will wryly raise the serious questions about inter-species intimacy, love and affection, and why and how I live my life the way I do. But the broader question this film raises is ? if we can love and empathise with dogs like this, how can we justify our treatment of other non-human animals?
