Three pets (Chance, a young dog unfamiliar with the world; Shadow, an aging, wise dog; and Sassy, a snobby cat) are left behind when their family goes on vacation.

When Sassy has fully recuperated and wants to get back to Shadow and Chance and her family so she leaves the cabin and runs off to find them. They have a very happy reunion. To increase the joy of this reunion some cat food was strategically placed on the dogs' faces to insure that the cat would nuzzle the dogs. After their reunion, they have a fish feast along a riverbank and they eat their fill of fish. There is a pile of fish cadavers alongside them at the riverbank. All the fish cadavers were fake rubber fish. See more »

My name is Chance. I know, it sounds odd, but most names do if you think about it long enough... maybe even yours. I was abandoned when I was very young.

One of the most Heart-Warming Funny Lovable Films About Animals EVER!!
Maybe I'm a sap but this is the sweetest movies ever! I saw it for the first time when I was around 4 or 5, and I cried my eyes out. Between then and now (embarrassed at age 15) I have seen it over 25 times and have sobbed each and every one of them. Don't worry they're tears of happiness! And it's not all sap! There's a lot of humor and comedy in it too. Usually the whole talking animal thing can be a huge drag but in this movie it's not the case. My only word of advice: Even if you love this-Don't see the sequal...cornyness! I suggest everyone checks this out...you won't be sorry, no matter how old or young you are!
