|Big [Dumb?-] Ideas Podcast: Dog's best friend?|
And while I didn't find an featuring him talking about his 'Timekeepers' book, I did find one featuring him talking about his dog book.
As I'm mulling over how anyone in their right mind would think a "dog cinema" would be a good idea, the perfect doggy cinema movie pooped into my head ... 'Dumb AND Dumber TO';-)
And even though I'm more of a cat person I gave it a listen, which probably made me more of a cat person when I had finished listening:-)
Hearing Simon talking about taking his dog to the local "dog cinema" to mingle with other dog owners made me wonder what movie you would take a dog to see?
Although 'Cujo' took no time at all springing to mind:-)
'The Moth' podcast and it was a Halloween episode featuring a guy telling about dressing up as his dead dog to go trick or treating one year.
Well, I guess a moth is a symbol of transformation, much like a butterfly is?-)Moth Verses Butterfly Symbolism
No wonder I'm starting to really swing to the side of the cat lovers lately;-)
MEOW!!I'll pass on Simon's dog book and stop wasting time on podcasts about dogs and their stupid owners and get back to reading his much more interesting 'Timekeepers' book;-)
I would have thought Simon would have preferred a better watchdog to have around the home though:-)
At least the Big Ideas podcast tagged a talk on the end by
Helen Brown about cats to bring some sanity to the episode -Cleo
I guess 'Cleo' would be the dog lovers equivalent to 'Cujo' when it came to animal horror stories?Time to stop making lame jokes about cats, dogs and dog owners, I guess?-)Frankenstein (The Movie) Turns 90?
UPDATE: October 31st, 2021
I'm a glutton for punishment (much like a dog owner is I guess?-) and just had to have a listen to more podcasts I found in another Apple podcast search for episodes featuring Simon Garfield while I was trying to nod off to sleep last night.

|Ep 34 - Simon Garfield and his new book, Dog’s Best Friend|
I heard the guys say that dogs originated from wolves, so I thought here is another movie for the dog cinema "Halloween" list that runs rings around all of those movies on the Top 10 list above ...
The Grey:-)And 'The Grey' turns 10 this year according to its IMDB page, so I might have to pick this as my Halloween movie to watch tonight ... with no pets around me:-)Plus, in my Australian state of Queensland it just happens to be Grandparent's Day, so what better movie to watch than 'The Grey' tonight I say?-)Got Your Queensland Grandparents Day Pumpkin For Sunday October 31st Yet?
