Moon Dog

She's convinced that sending her dog Molly to the moon is the right thing to do. But she's wrong. We never get to learn why she came to believe this, or how she managed to get him onto a rocket ship in the first place, but no logical explanations are really necessary to the story. You just have to suspend your disbelief and go with the shorthand way the story is told. That saves a lot of time.

Moon Dog is a short and charming little film by Australian filmmaker Nat Kelly. The premise is sort of dumb, and in the middle you'll think the story is awful, but stay with it because the payoff is worth it. No animals were harmed in the making of this video, especially Molly. (via Metafilter)
