Why is it that movies...

People get upset if a dog dies, but feel nothing at all if a fellow human is killed?
That's not to say that a dog's life has any less value than ours per se, I'm just curious as to the logic behind this.
I mean a fellow person dies people don't really feel anything but if a dog dies it merits a much stronger response.
One movie I was just watching even referenced it. A guy basically sacrificed a dog to save he and his girlfriend and she got mad at him and said, "You're a dog murderer....that's worse than a people murderer."
Reasonings, just out of curiosity? I also notice that apparently society has the idea that people who dislike dogs are evil or selfish or that dislike of dogs is associated with negative people. Sometimes in movies they even signify the good guy or make him instantly more likeable by giving him a canine sidekick.

Maybe it's because dogs are generally found "cuter" and they can't fend for themselves. I dunno.

It's upsetting when a human dies if they've been an important character throughout and the audience has 'bonded' with them. I think with a dog it's because the ones that die are usually so gentle and cute, and they'd do anything to protect their master. Which is the case in real life. A dogs love is unconditional, even if you beat it close to death. It's always sad to see something so loyal and precious go. Especially when it looks so real. You know a humans acting, but it's hard to believe a dog could pretend.

Also, saddest dog death has to go to the one in 'I Am Legend'. I cried, painfully.

Worth a watch ;-;

Honestly I never really cared if an animal dies in a movie, unless they're an important character like Sam from I A Legend. Speaking of which.....

That.

To this day, the only movie I've cried watching was Old Yeller.

Well, yeah in dog movies it's sad since the dog is the star I just meant generally speaking. But I can see your guys' reasonings.

Also, I was curious as to why giving your main protagonist a dog automatically makes him more likeable and signals him as the good guy, ha.
