The following are movies you should not watch while your dog is sick or recovering from surgery unless you want to end up a bawling mass, curled up in a fetal position with your other pets looking at you like they are vying for your position in the pack:
Old Yeller. Even if you don't have a dog, this movie will have you in tears. Holy macaroni! This movie kills me. How could Disney do this to me? Their movies are suppose to be sweet and uplifting, not about your best friend dying. Who does that to a kid? I saw this movie as a young adult and refused to ever watch it again.
Hachi: A Dog's Tale. The worst thing about this movie-it's a true story. A dog in Japan waited for his owner who never returned. Commence crying....NOW. I have never seen this movie but know the story and I will never see the movie because I know the story.
Marley and Me. It's not sad just because it has Jennifer Aniston in it-that would make it just plain bad. It's sad because the puppy teaches us about ourselves and guess what happens. Yup, you guessed right.
My story has a happy ending. I didn't end up under the couch in a fetal position. I ended up snuggled next to my best furry friend, sharing a nibble of steak and laughing at funny dog videos. The best way to spend any night.
