Prison Pups

Mostly I'm just posting this for the picture (I'm a sucker for dogs). Via the Austinist, this neat-looking show will premiere tonight at the Austin Film Festival:

"Prison Pups follows four prison inmates as they train puppies for the handicapped and hearing impaired on a minimum-security facility nestled in the rolling farmland northwest of Boston. The peacefulness of this landscape belies a controlled and regimented environment where these inmates live with and train puppies over a 10 to 14 month period. The benefits of taking responsibility and knowing unconditional love can be profound as inmates gain confidence and are empowered by their role as trainers.

I've seen bits of information on television about similar programs. I hope this one makes it's way online. I'd love to see it.

I think it's ultimately going to be on PBS.
