Four-legged comfort, and loss, on film

Thursday-Jan. 28. On top of everything else lately, some pet owners have lost their four-legged friends — friends who have carried them through the pandemic — while others have relied on overworked vets to keep their companions healthy. “The Hardest Day,” a Colorado-rooted film streaming free online, may well provide them some catharsis and insight.

Created by Ross Taylor, a photojournalist and assistant professor at the University of Colorado, and producer/filmmaker Luke Rafferty, the movie traces the unique bonds between humans and animals, focusing on the difficult end-of-life decisions, and the “veterinarians and support staff who help along the way.”
