During the Corgi segment of the movie, the missing tail was humorous because Welsh Corgis are born with their tail naturally short or missing. Others may have their tails docked between 2-5 days old due to historical tradition or as a measure of conformation to the Breed Standard. See more »

What is the meaning of life? Are we here for a reason? Is there a point to any of this?
[a litter of puppies]
First, I had no idea what was going on. I... I couldn't see a thing. It was warm. There was my mother. Every day, I had fun. Was having fun the point? The whole point? No, it couldn't be that simple.

As a monthly donor to Peta I'm very upset about this boycott request for A Dog's Purpose. I think this film has great potential to enlighten people that are very complacent about animals in general and show how wonderful they can be. To a small child that has never been introduced to animals this may be a turning point, allowing them to witness in this film the companionship, love and loyalty animals provide to humans. Some may never experience this in their lifetime, if not for this movie. Hopefully taking a child from one that kicks the dog and laughs to a child that cherishes the dog and in turn becomes a possible future Peta member. As much as I don't like the video of the trainer putting the dog into the water I think we should be concentrating on going after bad trainers and the state of California that allows these facilities to exist without proper supervision. To boycott an entire film that I believe is actually going to promote compassion and kindness towards animals is important here in the United States, and especially in other countries that treat dogs and other animals as garbage. Don't join this boycott.
