I agree with every single one of your choices! I can't watch A DOg's Purpose because I know my heart would break. I've never seen Old Yeller or Where the Red Fern Grows. Dogs should NEVER die in movies. I was devastated when the dog on Family Guy died and joined others to share my outrage until he came back. LOL!

I still have the horrible image of the man forcing the dog into the water. Won't go to that movie.


I hold publications to the same standard. If the dog dies I'm done.

I'm not going to go see that movie. I saw the clip and that was enough for me. I was cringing.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

i have no interest in every seeing that film


I think it's great that you pointed out the Neanderthal person. I really cannot understand people like that...I mean, is it ignorance or mean spirited, it's hard to tell?

And, I suffer from Old Yeller Syndrome too. :( :)

Thank you for letting us know about the problems with a Dogs Purpose. I hate movies where the dog dies or is abused and don't want it to happen a dozen times in the same movie.

Yes, agreed wholeheartedly with these!

Don't think I'll see that movie. Not a fan when the dog dies! (The dog died on Family Guy?!?!?) I read a review (by a dog lover...) that said the movie isn't *that* sad because every time the dog dies, he comes back ("I'm back!") almost immediately. But.... I'd still be sad for the former owner!


I agree with all your choices! And I suffer from Old Yeller Syndrome myself. I can't stand even the THOUGHT of losing a dog...in real life, any type of movie (including youtube.com) or books!! Same goes for cats!


not watching that film...ever.
