Samsung Dog school

One of Truffle's grand parents on her mom's (Lani) side came from this school in Korea, can't remember if it is Jay or Dale. I just saw the Samsung dog commercial on TV and found it on youtube. Thought they were too cute not to share.

This one is in Korean, but I liked it the best.

This is the one I saw on TV, beautifully shot

What I noticed is that ALL the dogs are yellow or light in color. Don't think they like black dogs.

You know, I have also noticed that the Samsung school doesn't use black dogs very much at all. Maybe they have something culturally against black dogs like some people here have against black cats. Maybe more extreme, though?

Those commercials were great! I'm Korean, so I was able to understand the first one (for the most part). Yes, I believe it's true that Koreans don't like black dogs. I'm going to ask my mom if she knows why the next time I call her.

Maybe it's because Koreans all have dark/black hair, and they want a bit of variety with their dogs? They have blonde envy?! Ha ha!

I heard from our old GDB club leader that some eat dog over there but they only eat black dogs. That's why most dogs GDB gets from them are black and why all dogs that GDB sends to them are yellow.

Those commercials were great. How fun!

I have heard that it's because black dogs are views as dirty or evil. I could be wrong but that's what my CFR told us a few years ago. :D

I don't the reasoning behind it,bu I do know, like Coreena said, that they do only send us black dogs and will only take yellow ones. It would be interesting to know why, but your observation was correct.

I'm told that black dogs won't be sent to Asia because of a fear of black dogs in that culture.
