I watched a movie last night. Really. I watched it.
It is an old movie called “Homeward Bound” and it was all about animals. There were three pets: a Golden Retriever (like me), a scamp of a pup, and a purry-thing, all going for a long hike in the Sierra Nevada mountains.
It was fun, and exciting. I particularly liked the part where the puppy launched the purry into the big litter box!
And where the dogs got to jump and play in the water (like when I played in our pond in the back yard).
I especially liked the scenes of the dogs running, and running, and running. I wanted to run with them.
Wasn’t sure about the part with the bear, however. First of all, it was a grizzly bear, supposedly the mommy bear with two cubs, but the cubs were definitely black bears. Didn’t the movie people think that a clever pup like me would see the difference? Besides, the bear took away the fish from the dogs. What kind of injustice is that?!
But all-in-all, I would recommend this movie for every pet, even the purry-things, because it shows how loving, and faithful, and devoted we pets are. I think that even you gentle humans would like it, although I doubt very much that you would get all the pet-related inside jokes.
That’s okay … although you can’t enjoy it from a deep, philosophical viewpoint like we pets can, you will still like the movie, albeit only superficially. We can’t all be perfect.
