Pug eyes for world peace

10 02 2008

ObservationsI have seen some guilt-inducing advertisements before, but this one is just cruel:

MeetOtis

What makes this ad even more sad is the fact that there is no false advertising or misleading commentary. I have absolutely no doubt that there are multiple pugs named Otis waiting to be adopted in animal shelters. I know this, but I like to keep it at the back of my mind, because thinking about all the dogs waiting for families is just too depressing. Adding another level of cruelty, the pug’s name is Otis, playing with my childhood memories of the movie, Milo and Otis:

In it, Milo the cat and Otis the pug go on adventures trying to survive in the wild. How can I not be emotionally affected by those sad eyes? Look into those eyes and you know you have to get a dog.
