Annabelle the Bouncing Sheep and her hide-and-go-seek partner Boomer the Dog!
Roo the two-legged chihuahua on wheels and Penny the silky chicken will always have a special place in the lump of burnt-out charcoal I call a heart as my favorite interspecies friendship of the year, but there’s something about watching a giant spool of wool with legs thinking she’s dog people while playing a hide-and-go-week with her dog friend Boomer on a farm in West Virginia. As the other sheep think to themselves, “The fuck is this baaaaah-itch doing,” Annabella the sheepdog stomps, prances and gallops and shows us what it would look like if Khloe Kardashian took up Riverdancing. Crazy ass sheep thinking she’s a dog. I was a little disappointed that she didn’t dog-ify herself all the way by barking, pissing on that shed and humping the camera person’s leg. But she does ram them at the very end.
And I can’t wait to inject liquid Valium directly into my veins to deal with all the screaming brats in the theater when Pixar eventually turns the story of Annabelle the Bouncing Sheepdog into a movie.
