World Premiere: Chrissie Hynde’s Music Video Inspired by Dogs’ Love

Written by Guest Blogger | May 12, 2014

Editor’s note: The following was written by singer Chrissie Hynde.

Chrissie Hynde press imagesWe’ve all heard plenty of songs about relationships, both good and bad. But in my personal experience—and that of seemingly everyone I know—the lifetime of devotion that dogs give is incomparable to that of humans. My new music video, which was filmed in Spain, tells a love story between a man and his dog. After seeing the documentary LA Stories: City of Dogs, I told my director, Steve Glashier, that I wanted to make a video for everyone who has ever loved a dog and had their love returned tenfold.

Please enjoy the premiere presentation of “You or No One”:

If you were moved by this video, please hug your dog, tell your pooch that you love him or her, and take your canine buddy for a long walk. Every day. Our dogs deserve it.

    Chrissie Hynde is incredible, as is this video. Her new album is amazing.

  • Deanna Rhoads says:

    My sweet, brilliant, clownishly and intensely loving soul mate dog companion of 13 ++ years is now crippled and dying from a spinal nerve disorder but still has the will to live, have fun and love ever more. I have been criticized, ridiculed and avoided for spending 19 hours of every 24 mainly just taking care of her as one would an aging, disabled spouse or parent.
    The simplicity and beauty of Chrissie’s video tells the tale of our love story.
    Thank you Chrissie!
