When we eventually uplift our canine companions, will they abandon their butt-sniffing, poop-munching ways in favor of dance parties, home cooking, and nice dresses? In this 1952 footage from The Sophisticated She Dog, bipedal dogs enjoy the finer things in life.

Note to the producers of Lives of the Monster Dogs: dancing dogs are kind of wonderful. If you want to fill an entire feature film with them, that would be A-OK.
