    Thank you. Some of my family has seen it and absolutely loved it!

    Hi Robert, I loved the book and I loved the movie just as much. I appreciated the part where the movie deviated from the book, too. Was ‘tidier.’ Everyone can find something (lots) to love in this special movie, and dog lovers should not be afraid of the emotional impact. It is all good.

    I read this book many years ago and it is one that has stuck with me for a long time. I was anxious to see the movie and was not disappointed. However had I not read the book a lot of the finer points would have been missed. Definitely worth seeing but read the book first if you can. It will help you to understand some of the more spiritual aspects of the dogs life.
