You get home after a hard day and – grief – then it’s time to cook. Not for this guy, perhaps, who has the kind of dog everyone should own. This is a kind of homage to the pets of the world, many of which would, if they could, perform these sorts of tasks for their tired and weary human companions!

Created by Madeline Sharafian during her second year at CalArts, this animated short has quite rightly gone viral. No doubt Madeline is walking around on air at the moment and quite deservedly so – this is an astonishingly proficient work by an undergraduate, one which will appeal to all age groups, beautifully timed and informed by humanity throughout: the biggest hearted animation I have seen for quite a while.
