I just came back from the supermarket, where I was buying my dog Cagney a new bag of dog food. Among the brands was a "new" one: Disney's "Old Yeller" dog food.
It's bad enough that we now have fictional animal spokesmen endorsing products for animal consumers. But who, I wondered, wanted their dog to be just like Old Yeller ... a rabid mutt who had to be shot just to avoid a gruesome and painful death?
Yeah, that's what I want for Cagney.
What's next, Macavity Mouse Toys? Jaws' Goldfish Food? Cujo Chewbones?
