A story about this — 2 years ago
I had read the book, and enjoyed that immensely so had no real interest in seeing the movie – but a bargain DVD made it worth a taking a look and I’m glad I did.
This is more than just a story about a dog and there are a lot of funny moments in the movie (although many of the clips used in the adverts were from deleted scenes) but there were a lot of heartfelt moments as this couple navigated through life.
It was a little weird that they kept switching dogs out for different scenes, but I understood how that was necessary especially towards the end as this covers 12 years and there really isn’t a way to “age” a dog.
Definite emotional movie, especially as it brings up memories from my own life with dogs, but even a non dog person should get teary at points. If not, well they’re just dead inside ;-)
