A movie that provokes tears & thoughts

Yes. I mean it.

I was debating on whether to
watch or not.

I watched and the movie is called "10 Promises to My Dog" and ended up in tears and with thousands of thoughts racing through my mind. This movie is very, very touching. If you LOVE DOGS and you've a sensitive and sentimental soul like mine, you will end up in tears. I'm not exaggerating. This movie will prove what I've written here.

The first scene in the movie says something like this:
"In the beginning God created man. And He sees that man is feeble, so He gave him the dog."
Although this is not biblical, it's still kinda heartwarming.

Here are the posters with the adorable Golden Retriever pup:

This movie is based upon the Ten Commandments of Dog Ownership, as followed:

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years.
Regular separation from you will be painful and can even cause depression.
Think before you buy me.

2. Give me time to understand what you want from me.
Don't be impatient, short-tempered or irritable.

3. Place your trust in me and I will always trust you back.
Respect is earned not given as some sort of inalienable right.

4. Don't be angry with me for long, and don't lock me up as punishment.
I am not capable of understanding why I am being locked up, I only know I have been rejected.
You have your work, entertainment and friends. I only have you.

5. Talk to me sometimes.
Even if I don't understand your words, I do understand your tone.
"You only have to look at my tail" to know that.

6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget.
If that treatment is unjust or bad, it may spoil the special bond between us.

7. Please do not hit me.
I cannot hit back, but I can bite and scratch and I don't ever want to feel the need to do that.

8. Before you tell me off me for being uncooperative, obstinate, or lazy, ask yourself if something might be wrong with me.
Perhaps I'm not getting the right food or I've been out in the sun too long, maybe my heart is getting old and weak, or maybe I'm just dog-tired.

9. Take care of me when I get old.
You too will grow old and will also want care, love, and affection.

10. Go with me on difficult journeys.
Never say, "I can't bear to watch" or "Let it happen in my absence".
Everything is easier for me if you are there.
Remember, irrespective of what you do I will always love you.

Oh my... I could feel tears in my eyes even when I'm typing and re-reading the sentences above, especially number 9 & 10. I better move on.

*sniff sniff*

Found another touching quote:
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

Here are two reviews:

Watch and be touched.
