Video Fix: My Dog Tulip


This is for all my fellow dog (and animal lovers in general) out there … the trailer for a new animated flick (geared towards an adult sensibility) called My Dog Tulip based on the 1956 critically-acclaimed and much loved book by author J. R. Ackerly and features the voices of Christopher Plummer, Isabella Rossellini and the late great Lynn Redgrave – I’m filing this under things I definitely need to see – the movie looks super sweet and right up my alley! Popbytes over & out for now … xoxo



The distinguished British man of letters, J.R. Ackerley hardly thought of himself as a dog lover when, well into middle age, he came to adopt Tulip – a beautiful, yet intolerable 18-month-old German shepherd. To his surprise, she turned out to be the love of his life, the “ideal friend” he had been searching for in vain for so many years. In vivid and sometimes startling detail, the film reveals Tulip’s sassy, often erratic behavior (and very canine tastes) and Ackerley’s fumbling but determined efforts to ensure an existence of perfect happiness for her.
