Episode 65: See Spot Run

We’re back! And we have just the perfect movie for our return. 2001s See Spot Run seems like a fun plot on paper, but it left Kate and Val with more questions than answers. Why was a bullmastiff an FBI K9 dog? And why did it want to go live with humans it had known for a weekend? Why would a perfectly sane parent leave their child in the care of the imbecilic postman, Gordon? Do American pet stores sell things unrelated to pets and why where there so many poop jokes? You’ll be asking yourself too.

You might be surprised! From chess playing, to time travelling and just being there looking adorable, they’ve got the dog moments covered.

Episode 58: 101 Dalmatians (Animated)

Meg from the Indoorswomen podcast joins Kate this week to talk the animated version of 101 Dalmatians.
