I don't remember hearing about this movie in 2009, which is unusal for me because I love dogs and I love movies!
When renting movies two days before Christmas, I stocked up on quite a few. When I was checking out the clerk said, "You get a free movie with your rentals."
As I was trying to think of what other movie I would pick out she excitedly said, "Have you seen Hachi?"
I said, "No."
She said, "You just have to see it!" She then ran and got it for me. I was a little annoyed that I couldn't pick out my own movie, but her enthusiasm had me hoping it was a good one.
When I got home and read the rest of the title, "A Dog's Tale" I had a feeling I just might like this movie.
Now I can't wait to take the movie back and thank her! This is a story of incredible loyalty. Not only that, I want skeptics who question if dogs have feelings to see this movie. There is no doubt there was an undeniable bond of unspoken words between this man and his dog, Hachi. Truly, truly touching. A must see!
