It is not a surprise to me that people need all different forms of information. But, I have to say, this video promoted by the World Health Organization really bums me out.
It really bothers me that something I take so much comfort from can be used as representation of depression. I love my dog and I know many people who love dogs....many depressed people who seek comfort from animals.
Then, the creator had to make it a black dog. Many people are aware that black cats are often ignored from rescue shelters. Well, black dogs of pretty much any breed tend to be ignored when people seek out dogs for adoption.
Basically, I just don't like a black dog becoming a synonym for depression.
