At Pukka´s – The Quest Part 1

It´s not the whole thing, but it´s a start as we have just published a film:


The Quest for longer-lived dogs – At Pukka´s 

As You might remember: we´ve tried to finance the documentary  “Quo vadis, canis? The quest for longer-live dogs” via a crowdfunding-campagne. But we didn´t reach the goal.
We still belief in that film  – of course! – and we are still working on it. Earlier this year we did some further filmings  in the USA, we will tell you about in one of the next postings.
So one goal had been to finalize the part of the film that we filmed first: The Journey to Ted Kerasote´s and Pukka´s home in Teton National Park, Wyoming !
You can watch it now –  https://vimeo.com/ondemand/qvc
Ted´s Books
We hope you will like the film (it´s over 30 Minutes long) and you don´t mind, that we try to make some money with it (to get the rest of the documentary going´)?

The Dog-Translater

It really is worth watching – Ted Kerasote is bestselling author of “Merle´s door” and “Pukka´s Promise”,  “the most utterly compelling translation of dog to human” as Jeffrey Masson puts it. Ted´s quest:  how we can give our dogs the happiest, healthiest and longest life possible? We accompany Ted Kerasote -and this film is part one of our own search and journey for the longer-lived dog.

  1. Awareness, knowledge and respect for nature and with this our former history with our Canines through all ages is now rare. We need to become more down to earth and just doing what is right for ourselves and every living source around us. As being hunter gatherers we had a special bond and we learned so much from the Wolf. How the dog became the dog has many theories but for sure our dogs are genetically just wolves but with some other traits and looks. As a owner and admire of the Dobermann Breed I’m aware every day of their health and temperament state don’t even talk about their longevity. The future of this ones so noble breed is hanging by a thread but still there is less cooperation for just make some steps and for given them more genetic diversity so we can dilute some issues maybe better. Stewardship is important and there is no more time for ego’s. Reading now in Merle’s Door it is inspiring and you just wish that more people will give their dogs their doggy life back including normal food and freedom……I loved to watch your documentary and looking forward to part II. It’s almost the end of 2017 let us wish and hope that 2018 we will be a step further in doing good for our planet and all the creatures great and small.
