A Doggone Adventure (This is the first Doggone movie I have watched)

I felt sorry for Murphy the puppy because in the first few mins he lived with an old man but the man made the puppy run away because something bad was going to happen and the puppy was on his own Murphy.

I didnt like it when David and Ricky said that Jenny couldnt host a tv show just because she's a girl and I didnt really like the adults acting it was cheesey and it didnt really feel realistic.

I like the animation in the intro and the music used and I liked that the dog could talk, well he wasn't really talking he was thinking and people could hear what he was thinking. ive only seen a few Movie where a dog could talk or think out loud and I would like to see more.

Murphy was really cute and the main charters were funny and I think the acting was good, I like the technology that was used and it was nice to see it used in action.

before watching this movie I didnt read what the movie was about and just started watching it and I found it interesting what would happen next. this Movie wasn't made for people my age but instead for children and I think they'll enjoy this Movie and if I saw it when I was younger I think I would of enjoyed it.
