I have three dogs; Clarice, a terrier and named for The Silence of the Lambs character; Molly, a pug whose superpower is excessive napping; and Bella, a German shepherd who for some odd reason I have given the human voice of Don Knotts. I love all of them but if I had to choose a favorite it would be Clarice by a long shot. She has enough energy, spunk and above all personality for 50 dogs and will carry on long conversations with you if you get her started. If anything bad were to happen to her I would be heartbroken. If anyone were to harm her I would be very angry and you wouldn’t like me when I’m angry. I guess that’s why I have a great deal of sympathy for Declan (Cory Michael Smith aka Edward Nygma on TV’s Gotham) in this week’s Short Film Saturday installment Dog Food. Of course to say much more would be to give away the film before you even see it. Let’s just say there’s a twist and then there’s a twist and leave it at that. Enjoy.
