'Life In The Doghouse: Special Edition' [BR]
(Ron Danta, Danny Robertshaw, et al / Blu-ray / NR / 2019 / FilmRise)
Overview: 'Life In The Doghouse' tells the inspiring life stories of Danny Robertshaw and Ron Danta and the remarkable work they do at Danny & Ron's Rescue.
Blu-ray Verdict: In what reveals itself to be a rather wonderful, if not at times heart wrenching new documentary about these two men whose compassion and determination in rescuing over 11,000 unwanted dogs, 'Life In The Doghouse' has, quite easily, become one of my most beloved go-to's for its genuine feelgood vibe.
A much-needed reminder of how wonderful people can be, and what a human's love can do, and be, for a dog (any animal, in truth), in the decade both Danny and Ron have been doing this, their unique approach to life and dog rescue should capture hearts and inspire millions to make the right choices when it comes to man's best friend.
They freely admit that they know of no other rescue business that allows their dogs to walk and run freely around their homes and business like they do, and watching these dogs do just that is just so freeing to the soul (ours and theirs, of course).
At the time of filming, they had an incredible 71 dogs running freely throughout the house and when asked what the "people space" footage would amount to, Ron replies (albeit, one assumes, slightly sarcastically) "How many square feet would a king size bed be?"
So, and for all intents and purposes, they (Danny and Ron) live in the dog's house where they are the guests! Throughout the wonderful near 90 minute documentary, you just know that the dogs that are all part of Danny and Ron's rescue will never end up in a shelter ever again or want for anything and will always be loved.
The world needs more people like Danny and Ron who throughout this new documentary showcase a wonderful story of love, commitment and dedication to dogs on a scale so immense it's actually hard to put into words.
Please watch it for yourself and fall in love with your pets all over again.
This Blu-ray includes 5.1 surround sound, stereo and English subtitles for the deaf and hearing-impaired and comes with the Bonus Features of: Photo Gallery, Deleted Scenes, and a Theatrical Trailer.
