Doggy Tale
7 December 2018 | by billcr12See all my reviews

Who doesn't love dogs??? This DOGumentary is one of my ten best films of the year. Five Labs are shown from birth to twenty months as they go through a rigorous training program fro Guiding Eyes for the Blind. My personal favorite was Phil. On average only about half of the dogs make it to become guide dogs. You will laugh and you will cry as you get to know each dog and its' unique personality. The caretakers are secondary to the lovable canines. This is a great movie for the whole family.
