Welcome back to day two of this fun reading and movie meme. I was very happy to have some participation yesterday from some of my wonderful blogging friends and I hope to keep getting some participation. I really do enjoy reading everyone elses interests. For one it gives me some ideas on things that I should check out and secondly, it shows me the things that I do have in common with my friends!
A book you wish more people had read and movie that you wish more people had watched
A Dog Named Slugger is an amazing book! I fell in love with this book and I’m so happy that I stumbled on it through NetGalley. This book really shows you the bond that someone can have with a dog and how a dog can mean everything to someone. You meet Leigh Brill, a woman with cerebral palsy, trying to make her way through college. She learns about service dogs and how they can really help out with the challenges she faces every day. This book lays out Leigh Brill’s life of going through the process of becoming a service dog owner to the love they two feel for each other. Slugger is amazing and you will aquire a new appreciation for service dogs. You can find my review HERE for this amazing book! If you ever get around to reading it, which you REALLY should, let me know what you think! 😀
Going along with the same theme from above…dogs…for movies I’d have to say:
So I watched this movie one night with my parents on a whim. I didn’t even know what it was about but it had a dog in it, so I’m all there! By the end of this movie, I am not even joking here, my Mom and I were both bawling our eyes out! The story is sooooooo touching. The basics is that there is a dog that has an owner that loves him very much. This dog is so attached to his owner that he escorts him to the train station every morning to see him off to work, because the owner can’t keep him from breaking out of the back yard, and every night when it’s owner gets off the train after work Hatchi is waiting for him. (I’m starting to tear up…) So one day the owner doesn’t show up at the train station, it is because he has suffered a heart attach and has passed away, but that dog waits for him still…every day…in the same spot…did I mention every day, until the day that he dies. It’s just so touching, just make sure you have tissues in hand when you watch this, if you don’t like crying infront of other people then watch it alone, but please try this movie out! It’s amazing. 😀
