I found this very moving, although some of the boyhood incidents seemed a bit contrived for dramatic effect, which is OK, it is a movie.
I had almost the exact experience with my dog when I was a boy. He & I had the freedom of Chesapeake Bay & roaming & shooting in the forest, but then High School was over, and off I went to 4 years in the Navy in those days of the Draft. When I came home after 4 years he was an old, old dog: he basically waited 4 years for me & died soon after I returned. I burned my old boat for his Viking funeral.
When we are young and full of life we don't realize how much our dogs love us, how they depend on us, and how short their lives are.
There have been many movies about a person's relationship with an animal, but "My Dog Skip" is one of the best.. The bond between Willie and Skip is very special and enjoyable to witness.In the 1940's, during World War II, things are rough in the USA. Willie Morris is not your average boy. He would rather read than play football with the other guys. When Willie's parents let him have a dog, it changes his whole outlook on life. He and his dog Skip have a unique friendship that becomes unmatched by anything else."My Dog Skip" is funny and heartwarming. This a movie that should not be missed by anyone, especially if you have had a special animal friend in your life.
I love it.
Makes you laugh, makes you cry-a really good movie.
