“Gone for Good???”

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (09-26-2022) #798C: Tracie talks to Deepanjali, a young design student in New York from India (whose parents chose not to give first names to her or her brother so they are single-named people!) For a school project, she created “Gone for Good???” a deeply-felt animated film that will be in the 7th Annual NY Dog Film Festival on October 23rd — and Deepnajali will be there herself! It depicts a mournful Pug who suffers when his mistress goes off to college and leaves him behind.
