This is a must-see AND a must-OWN for anyone who has ever loved a dog. I can't wait to own it so I can watch it again and again!
What a contrast! What a rebuke!
Presents from the viewpoint of the central character - the dog. However, one interesting twist is that when the dog dies, we switch to a newly born puppy, four times! The fascinating revelation is that the new dog contains the memories of the previous ones.
First owner is a boy about ten years old. They grow up together. Boy, Evan, becomes star athlete. Dad becomes abusive drunk. Divorce. Envy drives fellow student to burn house. Evan permanently injured. Dog dies (tears) and we start new life.
Young college girl afraid of friendships. Finally opens up and gets happy family. Dog dies of old age (tears). Years have passed.
Now finds he is a German Shepherd who serves as canine partner with police. Saves drowning victim and his partner but dies from gunshot (tears).
New puppy taken to live with young couple. Selfish and uncaring, both to each other and the dog. Owner dumps him far away so he can’t find his way home (no tears).
Then the conclusion! (No tears)!
Avoiding spoiler . . .
Great story (how much Kleenex do you have?).
What is a dogs purpose?
Show that loyalty, affection are precious and wonderful, no matter where you find it!
(Meditating on the title (as a question) ‘What is a dogs purpose?’; found the key idea is the word ‘purpose’. Purpose can only arise from wishes, wants, some form of plan. Evolution, by definition, is unplanned and without goals. The loyalty, affection, concern, etc. (seems to me) to completely discredit an evolutionary - ‘survival of the fittest’ - explanation. I have concluded, for decades, that this emotional treasure (love) is the gift of our Creator.)

I loved this movie when I watched at my friends, but my family can't get it to play on their mac at my house.
