Knights of Sidonia

Yesterday, Daniel and I watched the first episode of a Japanese animated TV series, Knights of Sidonia. It is about humans fighting aliens in the far future.

I like it, because it is in Japanese with subtitles. However, I dislike it, because there are no dogs in it. I believe that dogs are an essential part of human civilisation, and that wherever humans will go in the future, dogs will go too.

If there are no dogs in a story about the future, I believe the author have missed something. I do not like that. Science fiction can make for great stories, but the stories should be believeable. Can you believe a acenario of the future, if there are no dogs around?
