This is what won Best Picture in 1990?

A little different than I remember:

At first I was like LOL.
Then I felt dirty…because the dog is really trying to get out…so we laugh at him to music.


#5

That’s ironic because dogs aren’t allowed at pow wows.


#6

Yep, only at bow wows.

… I’ll show myself out.

While this video isn’t actually from a powwow, as long as your animals are outside the dancing arena or any other sacred/blessed spaces you will see dogs at gathering, esp if it’s a multi-day event with camping/trailering.

I just realized you might be joking on the dog doing a fancy dance. If that is so then good one. That’s a solid joke that almost nobody will get, even me and I used to sell trade beads at gathering several times a year. I have to respect jokes that require the audience to actually know something that isn’t a popular culture reference.

3 thumbs up, would read again.

Well that video had Native American music, which one might hear at a pow wow dance. But right, they can’t be in the dancing area. I only know this because I have been to a couple and they had info on conduct and dos and don’ts.

So here is what I see.
1/ A dog held captive in a run behind a fence, making what looks to me like stereotype repetitive movements. This happens because they are under stress due of lack of sensory variance in their environment.

2/ Music playing that appears to match the dogs movements.

3/ No proof that the music was being played to the dog during filming.

In conclusion should we be calling animal services rather than watching said video?
