This one is about a man and his dog.

WARNING: May be slow on some older computers due to lots of textures and camera movement. It looked a bit choppy on my laptop. Select a lower quality if that's the case. I've put it up on youtube for anyone that finds it unwatchably laggy.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

It's definitely worth your time.

A very well animated and smooth flash containing a deep story. Most all of David Firth's flashes contain no stable background, and this allows the mind to wander. Everyone will interpret this animation in their own way, but in my mind it represented the sacrifices made for loyal companionship.
A true friend is one who will entrust their life to you, figuratively OR literally.
(However, I noticed that when the man is "removing" his dog's limbs, he does not cut off the tail. When the camera zooms back out, the dog's tail has been cut off. No big deal, just thought I'd point that out. ^-^)

I'm really seeing a message here ...

There really seems to be a heartwarming message about friendship behind the surreality, morbidity, and macabre of this flash. When the dog says, "You'd have a real friend if you had your own tumor," it seems to imply what he plans to do to help the man out, and it also seems to show what a true friend is. Surely, no friend would probably be kind enough to do what the dog did in this flash, but this is merely a symbol of what a good friend would do for someone.

So, overall, I would say it's sad, but really touching. Keep up the good work, Doki!

Beautiful and disturbing...

I am truly amazed, this is quite a sad tale, a man wants to grow something on himself, the dog helps him, and at the end where the man is about to die, the dog offers his own body to save his master.
