Devil's Pond on IMDB

Devil's Pond (alternatively known as Heaven's Pond) is a direct-to-video horror movie starring Kip Pardue and Tara Reid. It is about two newlyweds, where the husband (Mitch) seems ideal until he begins perpetrating domestic violence and exhibiting other cruel behaviors. He is fed up with all the ugliness in the world, and so he isolates his new wife (Julianne) from the world. He controls every detail of their lives in order to make things turn out the way he wants them, and continually hits her when she tries to oppose him, get away, or even talk to him about their situation. She doesn't stand for this abuse and continually tries to escape. He is keeping the two of them in a secret place on an island in the middle of a secluded lake. He knows that she cannot swim, and is scared of the water. One time, she gets too close to getting away, and almost escapes before 'Mitch' finds her. He then chains her to anchors and other things around the island to make it impossible for her to escape. One day, she lights all their matches on fire, so he is forced to go into town to buy new ones. While he is gone, she gets an axe and breaks free from the chain. He comes back unexpectedly early, and she is almost discovered in her act of escape. He finds her and starts beating her the hardest he has ever done. Throwing her around, pushing her on the ground, hurling objects at her face, and all the while, she is screaming. Finally, she gets a hold of a gun and shoots him. He is not dead, but immobile. She gives him a couple of last words before leaving him to die. She leaves him laying there alone, the gun within reach. A shot is later heard indicating he killed himself. Overcoming her fear of water, she swims across the pond to the other side and walks away down the road to an unknown fate, but free.

The Ugly Dachshund on IMDB

Fran Garrison and her husband Mark are a young happy married couple and the proud owners of an award-winning dachshund named Danke. The show begins with them frantically getting into the car and heading to the hospital as "the pain has started and it's about time". In a hurry to the hospital Officer Carmody tries to pull them over for going 50 mph in a 25 mph zone. After notifying that they are on the way to the hospital and indicating that Fran is the one in labor, Office Carmody pulls in front of them and turns on the sirens to escort them to the county hospital. After he arrives and turns to find that Mr. and Mrs. Garrison have gone past him he gets back on his motorcycle and follows them to the vet. It is then revealed that Danke is the one in labor. While Mark is outside waiting on Fran, Officer Carmody catches up to him and after Mark thanks him for helping them get to the vet on time Officer Carmody reveals that he was under the impression that Mrs. Garrison was the one in labor and proceeds to write multiple traffic violation tickets totaling $110. On the day that Mr. Garrison arrives at the vet to pick up Danke and her puppies, veterinarian Dr. Pruitt mentions that his female great Dane has also just given birth but unfortunately does not have enough milk for all of her puppies and the runt of the group has been cast aside by her - as most dogs do under these circumstances. Doc Pruitt convinces Mark to bring home the great dane puppy so that Danke may wet nurse him until he has weaned. When he arrives home and Fran notices that there is another puppy she is surprised but does not suspect that the puppy is from another litter and reminds Mark that he should thank Danke for giving him a boy like he always wanted. Before he knows it, and after keeping his secret from Fran, the puppies have grown drastically in size. Of course the great dane puppy whom he has named Brutus is significantly larger than the other four dachshunds. As the dog grows up with Fran's dachshund puppies he believes he is one of them and picks up mannerisms like hunching close to the ground to walk. The dachshunds are mischievous creatures and lead poor unsuspecting Brutus through a series of comic misadventures with Officer Carmody (now Sergeant Carmody) being chased up a tree, Mark's studio being splattered with paint, and a garden party being turned topsy-turvy. Fran wants Mark to remove Brutus from the house once-and-for-all but when Brutus saves her favorite puppy Chloe from the garbage truck she changes her mind. Mark and Fran enter their dogs in a dog show with Brutus meeting others of his breed. He notices a female great dane and stands at attention. He goes on to win two blue ribbons. Brutus finally finds out what it's like to be a great dane.
