We’ve taken in so many things here in Palm Springs to do with food, architecture, art and fashion. But never before have we taken our canines into a movie theatre – until now.
My friend Tammy bought two tix to this NY Dog Film Festival® which is an annual philanthropic celebration of the love between dogs and their people and also the animal welfare groups that bring them together.
Layla, along with Tammy’s two beautiful Bichons (Timbit + Angel) had never been to the movies so this was our opportunity to take them to the Festival – a two-hour program (with a short intermission after the first hour) of stories about canines that are dogumentaries, animated or narrated from around the world.
It was awesome, especially preceded by a little cocktail party, which always comes in handy.
The Festival premieres every year at a theater in New York City and then travels to theaters in select cities across the United States and Canada, with a portion of every ticket benefiting a local rescue devoted to canine welfare.
We might give it another go next year. Tim is anxious but the other two can take it or leave it – unless they’re in it!

I love this
What a heartwarming experience! I love how the NY Dog Film Festival® brings together animal welfare groups and celebrates the bond between dogs and their people. Do you know if the Festival travels to other countries besides the United States and Canada?
Yes; it’s very different and as you said, heart warming.
