Some say you choose your dog; others say your dog chooses you. I’m not sure which is true in the case with my dog (although, she was the one in her litter who came up to me and said “I love you”).

After nearly three years, we have both learned so much about each other. She has taught me patience and how to take what I want her to learn and break it down into progressive steps that I can communicate without words.

She has shown me how delicious ice cream truly is and how you can’t stop after one lick.

Looking over the past three years, I’m reminded of how much joy and laughter my dog has brought to my home. Dog Days looks like it is going to be a sweet and funny movie many dog owners will enjoy.


Dog Days is a hilarious and heartfelt ensemble comedy that follows the lives of multiple dog owners and their beloved fluffy pals. When these human and canine’s paths start to intertwine, their lives begin changing in ways they never expected. This is a sweet film about the joy our furry friends bring into our lives and what they can teach us about treating people with kindness and compassion. DOG DAYS releases in theaters in August 8.

I know this is a movie I want to see and to celebrate the release, I’m giving away a $50 Target Gift Card. Just click on the image below to go enter.
