OMG it is so good!
13 January 2019 | by tigerave-77862See all my reviews

To all the naysayers, this is not "A Dog's Way Home". This is about one dog's life, not several and it is cute, funny and so heartwarming! There are so many instances where the dog is in danger or is lured to stay with others who want her, but she wants her Lucas, so she continues her trek home.

There is some CGI, but it was done well. There were many tears for me, but not sad tears. These are the tears that come from that sudden swelling of your heart that is so intense that it feels like it overflowed and pushed the tears right out of your eyes!

If you don't like excitement, fun and tears of joy, then definitely do not see this film. However, if you want to be swept up in an awesome adventure and don't mind a few tears, this is a masterful work of that genre.
