Super Bowl, beer, and lost dogs

We’ve reached the part of the Super Bowl season when companies release their ads, garnering more attention than a TV ad probably should.

And we’re pretty OK with that.

“‘Puppy Love’ (last year’s original) was a richer, more engaging story—that spot’s subtle parallels between the puppy/Clydesdale and the horse trainer/puppy adoption owner built a real connection over 60 seconds,” Ad Freak says. “This spot leans more on simple cuteness. It’s a decent sequel—but perhaps not a world-beating one.”

You decide.

Which brings us to today’s actual lost-dog story. Burt the dog has been missing for five months in New York. But this week’s blizzard reunited Burt with his human, the New York Times reports. (link fixed)
