Heart warming family story
18 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For the Love of a Dog is heart warming. It is so great to have teenagers who aren't doing hateful things to each other. They are all believable young actors with promising futures.

The interaction between the family, friends and neighbors is so touching. I absolutely love it when a community comes together to help each other. Even the blonde rich girl who acts snooty has redeemable qualities.

As usual, Sherman Hensely steals the spotlight in all the scenes he appears in. Grouchy but lovable is how I would classify him.

The youngest daughter and Sempher are just too cute for words!
