Fudge Dogs

Fudge Dogs is the 1957 acclaimed movie based on the working husky packs that worked to supply North America with sweet treats during the early 1800s. Starring O.J O’Brien and Melissa Germany, the movie highlighted the extreme conditions the fudge delivery dogs and their owners were faced with on a daily basis.

In one infamous scene, a delivery contract is nearly lost after three fudge dogs break in to a satchell containing fudge and lose the load. The scene initially brought complaints from animal rights activists around the world, who were concerned for the fudge dogs welfare should they accidentally eat a batch of fudge.

These complaints were exposed as little more than PR for the movie, however, after one canny cinema-goer commented “This is a movie. They didn’t really feed them fudge. Besides, it’s chocolate that’s bad for dogs. Not fudge!”
