Dogs Decoded-movie~

attention all Netflix addicts and dog lovers (like me!) Dogs decoded just came out and it is an instant computer play movie, its really quite good, and worthy of a watch when you have some free time

http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/Do...778#height1506

Has anyone seen this yet? they claim that dogs are much smarter and more evolved than any other species (including the monkeys, or supposed closest relative to humans) and there is one dog on there that has a vocabulary of over 200 words, pretty impressive (no, not a havanese, but we know it could be!)

That's funny. I just added that movie to my instant queue (I don't know how to spell it) today!

Dave & Molly, with Netflix you pay a monthly fee to have movies mailed to you, depending on the subscription you choose, you can have one or more movies at a time. You watch your movie then mail it back and they send the next movie of your choice. You can also "stream" movies to your computer or tv from Netflix. We have a Roku player with a wireless internet connection so we can watch movies on our tv whenever we want. We hardly ever watch normal tv anymore - no commercials!

Let me know what you think about it when you watch it, its pretty interesting how we release oxytocin (originally thought to be associated with infants and breastfeeding) with dogs and DOGS release oxytocin as well, (the hormone of love and bonding.)

Um, yeah..so sign up for one of the monthly trial things and you can't ever part with it, its one of the top 10 internet creations,

I have the 4 dvd's at a time and then they have many, many movies and TV shows already on so you can watch them instantly on your computer, great if you are bored at work, lol..or like me, I tend to multi task...

But basically, you can keep the dvds for as long as you want and then when you return them, the next thing on you que/want list is mailed to you..
Dave, you'd probably like this movie since you enjoy the study of behaviorism and it touches on hereditary influence(s)

I've been watching Hoarders this week...wow, mindboggling. my husband thought I was a packrat because of my boxes in the closet and garage..he ain't seen nothing!!

We recently watched some Hoarders too. It is indeed mindboggling! Kind of makes me want to throw everything away!

We finally dropped Netflix - were getting one movie at a time and it would sit here for like three weeks before we watched it. Was far more economical to go to one of those Red Box things at McDonald's and pick one up occasionally. If my husband isn't home, the TV here is never on. Going to have to get the dog movie, though.

That Hoarders thing is SCARY. I could only watch it once - made me uncomfortable. I have a lot of fabric and stuff. Makes me wonder at what point does one cross the line? Better not to think about such stuff! I'll let the kids worry about it!!! I'm joking, well....sorta.....

We have Netflix, but it's over the air screening. Nothing is mailed to us. It's all done through the TV. We cancelled all but basic cable because we weren't watching it. Even paying for Netflix ($8.99/mo) we're saving $55/mo. We noticed the movie you're talking about but haven't watched it yet but plan to.
