In celebration of National Dog Day, Amblin Entertainment and Universal Pictures released the new trailer for A Dog’s Purpose yesterday. I loved it so much, I wanted to share it with you.
For my daughter’s 13th birthday, all she asked for was a dog. And all I kept saying was no.
No. No. No. No. No.
But eventually she and her father wore me down. And the search for Jake began. It didn’t take very long to find him and on April 18, this adorable german shepherd puppy stole our hearts.
Puppy life wasn’t easy. We went through multiple crates – he seriously chewed & bent his way out of two metal ones, he chewed up my pair of Ugg slippers, and he tore up the carpet in a room. But all of that was quickly forgiven because Jake had stolen our hearts.
As a 2 year – a teenager by dog years – Jake is full of boundless energy. He loves to chase squirrels in the backyard, still tries to sit in our laps even though he weighs 83 pounds, and is always ready for a run. He has trained for 2 half-marathon races with me. And he is my constant companion as I work from home.
He is well-adjusted, easy going, and I am so happy he is a part of our lives.
A Dog’s Purpose
I read A Dog’s Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron shortly after we had gotten Jake and it completely changed my outlook on pets and what they mean to their owners. I loved seeing the world from a dog’s perspective and it just made me look at Jake differently. Yes, I know it’s fiction, but it really made me love him so much more.
Today, Amblin Entertainment and Universal Pictures released the new trailer for A Dog’s Purpose. I have watched it 5 times now and still tear up every time I watch it. It will totally make you smile:
