Autobody Fine Art is proud to host a very special Gala Screening of the Independent movie "Sniff the DogMovie," on July 3rd from 7:00pm – 10:00pm. This event helps us kick off the month of Petapalooza which will culminate in our third annual Dog Days Event, on July 24th, which helps raise money for the Alameda Animal Shelter and Northern California German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue.
Sniff is a serious documentary wrapped in a fictional comedic story. Two British concierges of a high-end dog hotel collaborate on a documentary about dogs. The trouble is, they’re not quite making the same film! Neil (British star Neil Morrissey: Bob the Builder, Men Behaving Badly) wants to regale us with a host of heart-warming stories of unusual dogs. But his dour partner Richard (Richard Huw: The Four Minute Mile, Splitting Heirs) is bent on investigating the life and times of working dogs. Juliette (Amanda Plummer: Pulp Fiction, The Fisher King) is Neil’s former love-interest and the co-owner of the Infinite Paws dog hotel along with her slightly conservative husband Derek (Maurice Godin: House, Monk, Working).
Through the dueling lenses of these two serendipitous film makers, Sniff follows in detail the lives of dogs at work and at play:
Sniff is full of fascinating bits of science and dog lore. It will deepen your
appreciation for these extraordinary creatures. Playful and fun for the whole
family – just the way the dogs would want it!
- Meet Mikey, a yellow Labrador Retriever, who completes his training to become a working Guide Dog.
- Meet Gabby, a black Lab who is socialized at Guide Dogs but switches careers mid-stream to become a Search and Rescue Dog.
- Take a romp in the ocean with Zoe, a Jack Russell, at the Coronado Bay Surf Dog Competition.
- Run on the beach with Gus, a McNab herd-dog, who has taken to rounding up sea-gulls for want of a good sheep.
- Marvel at Retriever Harley as he and water-shy Rover tag-team ball retrieval from the Klamath river.
