Went into video store last night and grabbed it. Gee, it's a long movie. Slow in parts through the bulk of it, but coming up to the ending had us all weeping. Even my big, tough teenager kept wiping his face saying he was allergic to something! Lol.
You were right - a great movie that every dog lover should watch. Thanks for recommendation. Kids have been watching it again on and off all day today as well.
