This is a movie very clever movie, a great movie for anyone who loves animals. It shows a great sense of humor, as well as deep caring for animals and people, The dramatic change in direction after the impact of 9/11 is quite impressive. Gayle's feelings for 9/11 victims makes you want to be like her, doing good in the world.

A Dog's Life is a festive tribute to the wonders of having a most special dog! It follows the exploits of a single woman who resides in the West Village of Manhattan with a personality pooch named Chelsea. The film is approached with humor and love....and, at times, a dog's eye view of the world via a mini-camera. During the course of this lighthearted romp, 9/11 happens and changes the direction of the piece as it did for all of NYC at the time. It turns out that Chelsea and her mistress have very big hearts and it moves them in a direction that engages them in a special way to those in distress. All in all, a joyful, poignant and enlightening experience.

This film told a great story. It is full of comedic quirks. That being said, it is certainly not short on tenderness or meaning. The overwhelming take-away message is that love (both canine and human) is the central drive in life. There is a great feeling of hope as the film progresses, especially as the audience witnesses Chelsea's (the dog's) therapeutic gift with all people. Chelsea's relationship with her owner Gayle is also a treat to observe. I love that this story is about real people and their pets. The film has a fearlessness about it in its humor and its truthfulness. Check it out!

Gayle Kirschenbaum created a touching and funny movie about the love and companionship between people and dogs. This wonderful "dogamentary" not only moved me but my daughter who is 11 years old. After seeing this film not only did she insists we get her a dog but she was inspired to make her won movie. The use of the "doggie cam" showing the point of view of Chelsea, Gayle's dog is priceless. You don't have to be an animal lover to love this movie.

I bought this documentary on a whim, not knowing much about it, and I was surprised! The film starts out as a hilarious story about a woman, her dog, and their love lives, but when 9/11 happens everything changes. The dog becomes a pet therapist and performs miracles. There is a scene with one of the patients that will just break your heart, the way these two touch people's lives. I laughed and cried, and afterward I just felt really warm inside. Its a feel good movie that reaffirms faith in humanity and relationships.

Gayle Kirschenbaum's documentary is a truly fresh take on life as a single woman in the city. Her love of her dog Chelsea takes her on a number of unexpected and very poignant journeys which ultimately help Gayle to better understand herself and the world around her. This is a must-see film for anyone who loves animals, people and figuring out how the two can better connect.

Gayle Kirschenbaum's documentary is funny, clever, touching and entertaining. It's also inventive and insightful. Kirschenbaum has a great flirtatious, quick-witted charm, as does her dog, Chelsea.

After just one viewing, this instantly became one of my favorite movies for several reasons:

First, it's a very sweet story about a woman and her dog. It's light, it's fun and it shows how much one woman can love her dog. It's a downright feel good movie. If you have a dog, you'll love it even more. If you don't, you'll realize what you're missing.

Second, Gayle's efforts in putting this movie together, getting it distributed, gathering support, etc. virtually on her own, are incredibly motivating.

Third, Gayle's confidence and go-for-it attitude all through the movie are so inspiring.

Helen Keller said: "Life is a daring adventure or it's nothing at all." Gayle is the embodiment of that quote and her movie is proof of that.

I read the two negative comments about this movie. I can't figure out what these people are talking about. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but these two are so extreme I wonder what the motivation for posting them would have been.

If you want a sweet story about a woman and her dog, put together by a lone dog lover, not a big studio, I recommend this one so highly.

And my bet is that the last few minutes of this film will bring you some of the biggest smiles. They did for me.

As a disclaimer, I have no business or personal relationship with Gayle aside from letting her know how much I love her movie.
