A DOG’S PURPOSE | DVD Review
I received no compensation for this post, but a copy of the DVD was provided for the purpose of this review. All opinions are mine alone. #ADogsPurpose
Put an animal in a movie and I want to watch it. Horse, dog, cat, dog and cat, loads of dogs or just one dog in particular as is the case in A Dog's Purpose. So what is the dog's purpose in this movie? Well, what does any dog do . . . they bring us joy, right! The dog in A Dog's Purpose has the unique ability to be be reborn again and again. The DOG, with a new name each time it is reborn, is made up of the same thoughts, feelings and perceptions interacting with a new dog's body in a unique and ever changing way. The dog continues to live on through transmigration or metempsychosis. Transmigration of the soul is when the soul after death from an animal (in this case) is reborn to some other animal body.
A Dog's Purpose does center around a young boy, Ethan, grows up with the dog, Bailey. But as life goes, he leaves the dog when he goes away to college. Bailey grows old and passes along and is reborn into a myriad of new dog bodies and has a slew of new owners. Bailey garners new experiences with each new owner and rebirth.
A Dog's Purpose is another great family movie that showcases the importance of relationships. Whether it be with family members or families and pets. There are wonderful messages throughout about the power of empathy and the importance of having companionship in our lives. A Dog's Purpose ends with Bailey, as a stray dog now, finding his way back to Ethan.
