a boy and his loving dog
18 January 2015 | by jvanderwalt5See all my reviews

This is a very heart gripping story about a young boy who's parents dies suddenly in a car crash.Buks played by (Pieter) must know leave the loving farm to go and stay with his drunk uncle(cobus rusouw) who does,t care a hoot for the boy or his dog.His loving aunt makes up for it but at one point Buks had enough and decides it's time to back to the farm.On the way Buks befriends a old Hobo who teaches him a lot about life and quickly Buks take's a liking to him. The only question I have is way did the boy named his dog "lelik" wheel I guess we'll never know. Anwway its a lovely movie and really worth the watch if you can still get your hands on this gem buy it you won't be sorry. Liefde vir lelik was released for the first time on DVD in 2008!!!!!!!
