The Dead Dog Report

Hello, HYSTOphiles! Ever since we started this journey, we keep accidentally choosing movies that just happen to include the death of an animal during their storyline.

A LOT of them.

Most of the animal victims are, for some reason, dogs, and it started to happen so often that we started keeping track, hence The Dead Dog Report.

Our good friend, sometimes guest, and forever good luck charm Kellie Arnold will not watch a movie where this happens, and we understand! So, she suggested we post this report online so she knows what movies we’ve covered that we recommend she not watch, and we were happy to oblige!

Kellie, this is for you!
