A dog purchases a robot kit so that he might have a friend to hang out with. The robot, a mellow type, enjoys hanging out with the dog, eating popcorn, watching movies, and going to the library.Read more ›
About the Dog, You don't bring a friend to life (heavy stuff) and then abandon them paralyzed on a beach in a time of need. Also you don't stop trying to save them because of a "no trespassing" sign. It bugged me the dog didn't try harder, I kept wondering why he didn't keep going back. Determination was totally overlooked, imagine if a parent left a child helpless on the beach because they couldn't lift them, not likely. It was obvious the dogs lack of ambition was necessary to facilitate the ending.
About the Robot, he's a good sport, but in the end should have let the dog know he was still alive and well. Humming the music wasn't enough, I'd hate to find out someone close I thought was dead was still alive and didn't tell me. For any of this to make sense, some sort of actual reunion/reconciliation needed to occur.
Visually it's nice, but it's hard to imagine anyone would act so passively in somewhat dire circumstances.
Sooner or later, someone new comes along... an imperfect reflection of the first and truest friendship... you'll be happy again, but you will always remember the first TRUE friendship with nostalgia... and you'll never give your heart like you did the first time.
If country music had robots and dogs, this would be a song.
Love the illustrations, though.
