Viewing figures go through the woof

Empathy, the ability to put yourself into someone else’s shoes, is one of the things that makes us human. It lets us know how others feel. It can make you cry. But what would it be like, I hear you say, to put yourself into somebody else’s PAWS?

Whether you are wondering where your sandwiches have got to, scraping some brown off your climbing shoe or a mother grouse, wondering why your brood seems to be missing a chick, then here is the latest BMC film that will give you an insight into a doggie’s mind. It’s already proved very popular. If you haven’t already seen it, then check this out.
