Why We Need to Boycott "A Dog's Purpose"

How would you feel if you were forced into freezing cold water against your will?

Why We Need to Boycott "A Dog's Purpose"

The trailer for the movie “A Dog’s Purpose” looks like such an emotional, inspiring and touching movie. The film is based on the book “A Dog's Purpose” by W. Bruce Cameron. The story questions the meaning of life while the dog tries to make sense of everything he or she has witnessed throughout several lifetimes.

With each new life, the dog learns a new lesson and learns what his or her purpose is throughout many lives.

The trailer looks like a beautiful story to me. And it made me look at the way I view dogs differently.

I started to think: “What if this is how a dog’s life actually is?”

“What if this is what it is really like inside of a dog’s head?”

I was absolutely dying to see this movie--thinking it would have a beautiful message and leave me feeling nostalgic.

Then, I saw a video that changed everything.

TMZ released a video of the German Shepherd in the movie being forced into the water. Seeing this video broke my heart.

It was clear that the dog did not want to jump into the water at all. The dog was dragged into it and forced against his will--having to struggle with his task because he was so uncomfortable.

People who think this is not a big deal clearly don't view dogs as highly as they claim they do.

How would you like it if you forced into water that is more than likely freezing?

Thought so.

The whole point of this film is to show how a dog’s love is unconditional and a dog is a person’s best friend. This goes against the entire point of the film by making the dog do something against his or her will.

I am now going to boycott the film (which I was so excited to see) And I hope everyone does the same. This video goes against everything the film stands for and just shows the directors were only in it for the money. They do not deserve to get ratings and money from a movie that tortured the animal involved.

Of course, this sounds like a beautiful story, and I am sad that I have to miss out on seeing it.

However, we are privileged with the original copy of the story being the book. I am going to read the book instead, and I am still going to feel nostalgic while I read it.

So thank you, Cameron, for giving us the real story from the heart; “A Dog’s Purpose.”

I hope everyone boycotts this film and sits back with a cup of coffee, enjoying this book instead.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,

After packing two oversized suitcases and two carryons with all the boho chic clothes I thought I needed to travel across the country for my dream internship, I quickly realized that although I may look like I belong out in the entertainment capital of the world there was a lot more to it than Free People dresses and fanny packs.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,
September: Los Angeles

Ever since I was younger I dreamed of moving out to California. There was something so amusing about being in the hub of it all that bursts with passion and artistry wherever you look. After a trip to LA when I was a sophomore in high school for dance, I fell even more in love with this utopia of a city and from that moment on, Los Angeles was that light at the end of the tunnel.
