Going to the dogs. . .

Not that I'm Plummer obssessed or anything, (okay, maybe I am), but I'm probably more dotty about NYRB books, and so when the two combine - well, it's just a very good day. Courtesy of the always entertaining and informative NYRB blog, A Different Stripe are some clips from the upcoming animated film of J.R. Ackerley's classic, My Dog Tulip. You can watch them here. Christopher Plummer plays Ackerley - there's that marvellous voice again. The first clip in particular, is hysterically funny. The film will be out next year giving you plenty of time to read the book first. A must for dog lovers.
