Snowflake's Purpose | A Dog's Purpose Family Movie Night

You know the kind of dog who is happy to greet you every time you come home?  A herd dog who thinks everyone inside the fence line – humans, chickens and cats included – are all just there for me lead around and show them what’s what.

I realize I have so much love to give and that my owners wouldn’t change one thing about my big white fuzzy mug.   I’m just trying to fulfill my purpose of bringing joy to my family and farm.

My name is Snowflake.

Tonight my owners decided to settle in for a wonderful film about… guess what, dogs!  At first I was curious to see what was up with this film, A DOGS PURPOSE (available now on Digital HD and coming to DVD & Blu-ray on Tuesday, May 2nd).

In truth I don’t like watching movies very much, I’d rather be playing outside or napping on the porch, but I was getting so much attention I had to sit down for a bit to enjoy the love.

And then they gave me treats!  Tail wagging woof!

I heard my owner say they were all-natural Ingredient Emma Lou’s Kitchen Chicken Jerky treats.  All I know is they were so delicious, I gobbled them up and begged for more.  If this is what movie night consists of from now on, I might just stick around for a bit.

Heard that my owner might be making me baking me some treats soon, too from this book she received and I’m hoping that happens soon, too!

Okay, so about this film, A DOG’S PURPOSE… I liked the dog at the beginning of the film, that caught my attention and I barked at the screen.  But then I quickly went back to looking for more treats and bugging my owners to rub my ears, neck and belly.  After all, those are the important things.

If I had watched the film a little more closely, I would have noticed the warm loving looks on my owner’s faces and the laughter they expressed during the funny poignant moments.  I might have seen the wide range of emotions they had throughout the movie because while watching it, it reminded them how dear I am to them and how I’m an incredibly important part of this family.

Ask me what I think my purpose is and I think I might say it was to enjoy the delightful variety of treats and affection my family showers me with.

Maybe it’s also to cuddle with them on occasion when they watch a heart-warming family film.

I’m also responsible for keeping them in line and letting them know who is boss around this farm.

And if you ask my owners and farm yard friends, they would probably say I’m responsible for helping them understand day after day, what unconditional love truly is.
