Wonderful and touching
20 October 2001 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I fell in love with Karen Valentine when I saw her on Room 222. She is a great actress that you don't really see enough of. She can convey sweetness, and cuteness and wholesomeness better then even Sally Field. I think they could easily have made this delightful and touching film into a tv series. Karen is so wonderful as a compassionate teacher who uses a four legged assistant! A film that will really warm your heart. They do need to show it more often.
