My Thoughts- My Do the Champion is a very sweet and up lifting movie. My son who is 4 years old sat and watched it with me, andhe seemed to enjoy it. It is always very important to have movies that you can watch as a family and not worry if it is going to have bad influences, or be to violent along with foul language. I enjoined the time with my son, and his reaction to the few dogs that are in the film. This opened up some conversation about rescued dogs, and we even got to see some during the week. He was excited and asked if we could help them like the movie. Though I may not watch this movie again, it is a sweet movie to watch as a family and learn about dog rescues.
