NATURE: Why We Love Cat and Dogs Americans own 73 million dogs and 90 million cats, considering them best friends, soul mates, family members, and even surrogate children. Relationships with cats and dogs are some of the longest and most intimate of our lives. Why are we so attached? Animal behavior experts, evolutionary biologists, veterinarians, and pet owners all get personal in a series of interviews and stories that are insightful, funny, heartwarming, and life changing. One couple sells their home and business and sets out on a cross-country trip in a Winnebago to share some final quality time with their cancer-stricken dog, Jerry. Their story is just one example of how strong the bond can be between dog people, cat people, and their four-legged, furry, very close and personal friends.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
