Nature: Dogs

We rented a DVD of old episodes of the PBS series "Nature" on dogs. It had a lot of sweet footage, and some unremarkable voiceovers-- it was certainly pleasant to watch, but not very memorable. The low point was having to listen to the quackery of Elizabeth Marshall whozits, to whom I have taken an unnatural dislike since reading the insipid "Hidden Life of Dogs". On the up side, there was a fantastic shot of a shepherd describing his dog commands to the camera, and three Border Collies in the distant background darting back and forth in response.
