Everyone knows how much I love dogs especially how enfatuated I am in with our dog Tanner. Therefore I couldn't wait to see the movie, "Marley & Me" but let me tell you - I should have listened to all of the warnings about how sad the movie was. Honestly I can't remember the last time I cried....oh I mean sobbed during a movie like this. There should be a WARNING at the beginning of the movie that encourages young children, hormonal women, or anyone else that loves dogs to get up and leave the movie immediately. Don't get me wrong, the movie was excellent and told the story of how precious dogs are to us but could they have made the end of the movie any sadder?!?! If you are thinking about watching the movie, please take my warning and bring a box of Kleenex - yes a full box and make sure you are emotionally in a very happy place. I kept thinking about how lucky we are to have Tanner and the reality is that someday his time will come but I just can't imagine going through that. Now I'm sure there are some skeptics out there that wouldn't agree with me but I don't know how you can't cry in that movie. I've often heard people say, "it's just a dog" and nothing makes me angrier than hearing an ignorant and insensitive comment like that. What does it mean anyways - "just a dog"? I am just grateful that those that make those comments aren't dog owners because I would feel sorry for that dog. Wait better yet, I wish those people would get a dog so that they can witness and experience first hand the unconditional love that they provide to us. Dogs are truly full of love and I just don't know what we would do without them.
