There'd been a big fuss about this movie, but the American Humane Association's decision cleared all that up- so I didn't feel guilty watching a sweet, family movie.
A Dog's Purpose is about a dog seeking the meaning of life. He enters the world a puppy, and falls into the hands of a boy who loves him dearly. Through joys and tribulations, the dog named Bailey, loses his life. But he returns, a pup of a different bred, in a different place and comes by a new owner. Again and again. It's not so much about who he ends up with, but what he takes from that life, making the movie such a wonderful journey.
The picture, though sweet, managed to pick up some conflicting reviews. Many enjoyed it, while others ragged on it. My family thought it was an adorable, cute, funny, tear-jerking story that included a sweet message. I even found myself tearing up on a few parts that made me want to own another pooch. Probably not going to happen, but that's a whole other story.
If your family loves dogs and likes a good story, where the dog is Boss, check out A Dog's Purpose. May still be in theaters, or preparing to go to iTunes, Amazon and dvd. Cheers!
