The end was very sad I agree but I have to say the film annoyed me the dog was badly behaved.

The film I haven't had the courage to see is Haichi (spelt something like that); a real doggy heart wrencher by all accounts.

OMG, Hachi is SO sad. I couldn't possibly watch that again! Has anyone ever seen that episode of Emmerdale where Edna's dog was pts? Saddest. Scene. Ever. :(

I agree was like a dozen peoples bad moments with their dog all rolled into one dog, but the kids loved that bit. Kids always like watching naughty animals or children dunno why

I'm a sucker for a weepy film or book but I am a big cry baby and it's a rare film that doesn't have something in it to make me well up.

I watched Hachi and bawled - loved it!. I read Marley and me which took me about 2 days to read (I am a book in a few hours girl). The reason it took so long was each time I got part way through the newspaper article that the author had written after Marley had died, I had to stop because I couldn't read through the tears. I took about 3 hours just to get through that bit alone. I was much better in the film but didn't enjoy it as much as the book.

I haven't watched Marley and me, but I cried buckets when I read the book. Can't watch Hatchi because I would be a wreck. I even cried at Ice Age :?

He was most apologetic for not understanding how I felt when had our family dog put down last year( 17 years old was my dog at 9 years old but stayed with my mum and brother when I moved out at 20 as descided was yo old to move her away.) my hubby never owned a dog that was like family.

Omg I cried at Marley and me so sad but love the film. Reminds me of my doodle Maisy when Marley stole something and ran around the house with it hahaha I was in fits of laughter! Could totally relate! I bought the book after the film but not had a chance to read it yet.

As for Hatchi I bought it for my mum one xmas and she watched it and told me how amazing it was but sooo sad so anyway I decided to watch it... knowing that by the end of it I will be in tears and my god it's amazing! Based.on a true story too, you have to watch it just make sure you have the tissues ready as ifyou cried at Marley and me this is worse but such a brilliant and lovely film. Great storyline. I'm going to have to watch it again sometime soon. Any other good doggy films you'd recommend ?

Yes we can relate to the stealing and running lol. In fact I bet I spent a good fifth of my day retrieving stolen items as usually involves chasing a pup around the garden so I think I do my 30 min of cardio each day. :lol:

I watched Marley at the cinema and I don't think there was a dry eye in the place! i thought it a lovely film and I laughed as well as cried. I think the ending was in a way beautiful as well as sad (something all us dog lovers have to face). It was my birthday treat after a meal at local Chinese! Had to have a brandy when I got home to settle my nerves,!

I haven't seen the film as I was just too annoyed with the guy in the book!! As to Hachi, am I odd? I couldn't help feeling that the poor dog's life was wasted, sitting there in all weathers... :( I did cry at 'Bambi' though... :roll:

I read a book by Dean Koontz "A Big Little Life" - that was lovely.

Dean Koontz is a thriller/suspense/supernatural writer and I did not know what to expect but it was the most beautiful book (and true) and written from the heart

Dare I watch Hatachi?
