Netflix is releasing a series about dogs and we are not worthy

30th Oct 2018

There is a thing called the ‘post bank holiday blues’. Fortunately for us, Netflix is releasing a docuseries on dogs, thus banishing any trace of the colour blue from our lives this week.

The six-part series will focus on the emotional relationship between canines and humans in countries across the world including Syria, Japan, Italy, the United States and Costa Rica. It will aim to show us not just how we look after dogs, but how they care for us too.

Each episode will focus on a different person and their best friend, including Corrine, an 11-year-old girl who suffers from traumatic seizures, and her canine friend, Rory, who is trained to detect any approaching episodes. And Ayham, a Syrian refugee, who is trying to make his way home to his Siberian Husky, Zeus, whom he had to leave in the war-torn country.

Speaking to Variety, director Glen Zipper said “Dogs don’t just make us feel loved—dogs make us feel safe. In the world we live in today, no matter how divided we are, we should take care to realize how much dogs mean to all of us, and how our bond with them can help bring us together.”

Unsurprisingly, Twitter adored the news with many commentators thinking that dogs might just be able to save our world.

The docuseries will premiere on Netflix on November 16.
