Oddball is a dog. A really sweet dog. But he’s a dog who gets into a lot of trouble. Until he finds his calling…penguins. “Oddball” is a sweet, loving, and happily ending story for the whole family. The cast of characters, both human and not, are as different from each other as they can be. But somehow they all come together to show that persistence, love, and instincts can solve the toughest problems. We promise you will adore this movie! Enter my giveaway to win the DVD or Digital Copy.

A little more from Entertainment One:

“Oddball is based on the true story of an eccentric chicken farmer, who with the help of his granddaughter, trains his mischievous dog Oddball to protect a penguin sanctuary from fox attacks in an attempt to reunite his family and save their seaside town.”

Thank you to Momentum Pictures for our complimentary CD in exchange for this review and giveaway. Good luck everybody!!

Silent Sunday: Rudy

About four months ago, I posted a Silent Sunday photo of Rudy, my brother’s new dog. Today, I post it again with the sadness felt after Rudy’s passing. Rudy was having unexplained seizures which damaged his brain. My brother, along with his family and the vet, decided it was best to send him on to his next journey.

I never met Rudy, but I have met some of the awesome dogs my brother and his family have rescued. They are the kind of people who put a great deal of thought into adopting dogs. It is never a rash decision based on their own needs. It is always a matter of bringing one of our world’s furry friends out of a difficult situation and into one of love, playfulness, and loyalty.

Their hearts are heavy today and I send them my love. But there is no doubt that Rudy is perfect now.
