There is this story that’ll tug your heartstrings. It is a YouTube video uploaded by Desmond Bros. Their short movie entitled “A Man and His Dog” entered the finals of 2014 Fresh Film Festival. This is a story about this man’s search for his lost dog.
A constant companion
The movie begins with the man chopping a log with a fluffy Shih Tzu named Charlie that was always by his side After the man added the firewood to a stack, he shared his sandwich with the dog. The man then went trekking through a field, passing a bog area that was cordoned off with barbed wire. He jumped over the barbed wire fence to clear the plants on the other side with his dog following him to that area.
The man started clearing the field while the little doggie sat on a grassy knoll. The cute pooch looked to the left as it saw something in the distance. It stood up and ran away to chase whatever he saw. When man checked his watch to see that it was noon, and he noticed that his Shih Tzu was missing! His dog chased something and didn’t get to come back!
The man searched high and low for his dog. He went to the bog area, endangering his life by walking in the sinking mud. The dog was not there, so he continued his search by crossing a field to go to a river. As he walked on the shallow part of the water, the man continually whistled and kept on shouting, “Charlie!”
Nowhere to be found
The man’s pace was getting slower, and his sadness clearly showed. His search brought him past piles of hay. He went to the old and rusty drums that lay on the ground and looked inside each one of them. Finally, after walking miles and miles, he had to give up the search, as it was getting dark. He made the long trek on the dirt road alone, going back sadly to home.
When he got home, lo and behold, Charlie was waiting for him on the porch! It was all dirty and messy from its adventurous chase! The dog looked up at the man, with eyes that begged for forgiveness for its disappearance act. The man smiled at the dog, happy as he found his pet, and Charlie rushed down the steps to be with his owner once again!
