Looking For Some Fun Movies About Pets?


Did someone say… movie night?? We’ve been craving a serious movie marathon & cuddle sesh with the pups while downing some popcorn and M&M’s in the comfort of our own home.

There are many reasons this is such a beautiful movie, but perhaps the main reason is that it's based on a true story. Japan, the home of Hachiko, honors this pup as a national hero and even has a statue dedicated to him. To understand why, well... you'll just have to watch. As heartwarming as it is, you'll definitely need a stash of tissues.
