Great for Pet lovers
6 March 2001 | by masterchefmattSee all my reviews

This is a great film. I watched it back in 1986 and taped it off of television. As I grew up I watched it and loved every minute of it. It is again one of those films that was put out by Disney I believe and never reaired. I just wish that they would put some of these old 80's movies back on because unlike todays movies filled with violence, sex and bad language, these films actually focus on the family. If you have seen this film, and enjoyed watching it, I suggest you check out, "The Thanksgiving Promise" and "Little Dog Sick" on the Internet Move Database. Please bring back the movies!
