JINGLE THE DOG: A CHRISTMAS STORY is in the KIDS FIRST! Film Festival - it may not be a regular, endorsed title
The 2D animated short film, Jingle the Dog is pretty appealing. It tells a very relatable story and leaves you wondering the whole time and feeling different emotions. Without using words, it delivers a wonderful story and a good lesson.

This storyline is about a dog that lives with a nice, happy family until a misunderstanding happens. The dad plans to give the wrongfully accused dog away. Instead, the kids think that instead, he should be free and send him off alone. The now homeless dog meets some animal friends and goes on a journey to make his way back home and to try to be accepted again.

I like that the story teaches people how bad misunderstandings can be, and also teaches people to try to understand others before you come to conclusions. I really love the animation in this film. It is like watching a story book come to life. The locations are normal places, such as a home, a frozen pond where people ice skate and a snowy forest. The settings are all perfect for a winter film. Even without words, the story is well told and has great Christmas music featuring the marimba (which I love). The illustration and animation artist, Modeo Media Animation Studio has created really fantastic illustrations. My favorite part is when the dog and the raccoon fight. The stances they make before they start fighting are funny.

The message of this film is that misunderstandings can end really bad and you should take time to understand a problem before you jump to conclusions.

I give Jingle the Dog 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 3 to 10. I recommend it for a film festival because it is a great film that kids will enjoy and be able to watch with their parents. Reviewed by Tiana S., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.

A heartwarming tale about a happy and clueless family pet in a wild Christmas adventure as Jingle the Dog is thrust into the real world. Jingle the Dog is enjoying his holiday time with the family. He senses danger outside the neighbor's house from a hungry raccoon and comes to the rescue of the neighbor's daughter. However, the neighbors see it differently and demand that the dog is sent away.
