The Real Dog

when i first saw this movie i was 8 years old and that was in 1985..believe or no i loved that movie and i still have it now even if i am 27 years old now..the story is telling you that wither the master of the dog is bad or good the dog will follow his master and go after the who murdered his master even if he is innocent. The dog will go after him and will cross hundred of miles to get to him but at the end something really sad will happen...i recommend this movie for those of who loves to see the loyalty of the dog that really deserve to call "The Best Friend". The dogs always and will still the mans best friend. I also hope that you like the movie and it contain some music clips that really nice to hear..
