“Every dog happens for a reason.”
If you like charming movies about pets, specifically dogs, then you need to add this to your “must watch” list.
Based on the 2010 novel of the same name by W. Bruce Cameron, “A Dog’s Purpose” chronicles one endearing dog’s journey over the course of several lives and how he looks for his purpose through each of his lives.
The book, which stayed a New York Times bestseller for 49 weeks, is written in the voice of a dog who is reincarnated several times and hence, takes multiple names and forms of dog. It garnered critical praise from Temple Grandin, famous for her study of cattle behavior; Kirkus Reviews; and Marty Becker, resident veterinarian on the early-morning television show, “Good Morning America”.
The trailer, which was released in conjunction with National Dog Day, previews Josh Gad voicing a reincarnated dog who changes the lives of his (and sometimes, her) many owners and finds the meaning in his own life.
He is first introduced as Bailey, who is the loyal companion of a boy named Ethan. They both grow up and years later, Bailey dies – but he comes back as another dog. And then that dog grows up and old, and dies, and comes back as a other dog. And another dog. And another dog. You get the picture.
“If I can get you licking and loving, I have my purpose.”
And the end of it all, he reunites with much older, more wrinkled version of Ethan.
