Forbes just posted this really cool video and Q&A about the topic of chapter one in “The Dog Merchants” book: breeders and rescuers sitting side-by-side in legal dog auctions, trying to outbid each other for the same exact pups.
Watching this video come together was really fun. The producer asked me to talk into my iPhone, and then her team edited my voiceover into the video animation to illustrate the topic.
It’s a very good way to talk about an issue as controversial as dog auctions, with the animation likely to keep people interested instead of having them turn away (like those sad dogs-in-cages commercials always do). I really appreciate that Forbes took that tack, which is true to the tone I used when writing the whole of “The Dog Merchants” book.
