* NightmareFuel: A deeply painful example, coupled with TearJerker and tapping right into victim psychology. As Rowf seeks Snitter, he ponders the meaning of life and how all-consumingly his decisions were driven by hatred of men and fear of being drowned again... [[spoiler:and that he actually loves men, even the whitecoats, and has an innate desire to be in the drowning tank because he just wants to be a good dog.]] Good argument for trigger warnings.

* NightmareFuel: A deeply painful example, coupled with TearJerker and tapping right into victim psychology. Not only does the story bookend with fear of drowning, Rowf's internal struggle is shown to be shockingly realistic. As Rowf seeks Snitter, he ponders the meaning of life and how all-consumingly his decisions were driven by hatred of men and fear of being drowned again...

A 1977 novel by RichardAdams about two dogs named [[BigFriendlyDog Rowf]] and [[MisterMuffykins Snitter]]. The two narrowly escape from an animal testing lab and roam the English countryside with the help of a fox known only as "[[NoNameGiven the tod]]" (a dialect word for "fox"). The facility, [[FunWithAcronyms Animal Research, Scientific and Experimental]], attempts to reclaim the dogs and spreads a rumour that the two harbour a dangerous bioweapon to assist in their capture, hence the title. It was [[AnimatedAdaptation made into an animated feature-length film]] in 1982, a few years after Adams' other book, ''Literature/WatershipDown''.

* AndThereWasMuchRejoicing: The dogs have a song about another dog from their lab. It ends with "His name was Kiff, he was black and white/He was burned to cinders--serve him right." [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]], since Rowf and Snitter actually seem to miss Kiff and often mention him
