A Dogs Tale


Magic and the amazing power of a boy’s wish put young Tim Webster in the doghouse for Christmas! It seems that anything is possible once the Professor arrives in town with his colorful and ragged band of rail-riding wayfarers. When the Professor tells Tim about a legendary supernova with mysterious powers that is set to appear in the night sky any day now, Tim knows he’ll finally get the dog he’s always s wanted.

After making the wish, Tim realizes something went wrong: he has a fur coat, a wagging tail, a wet nose and four paws! This exciting and hilarious story of Christmas magic is destined to be a Holiday treasure for the whole family to enjoy!

Dove Review

Some may remember a movie in the 1960s about a boy that turned in to a dog–well, this is the same type of story. Tim wants a dog for Christmas but his parents say no because they don’t believe he is responsible enough to take care of one and then there is the cost of raising a dog. But when Tim meets the Professor he tells of the legend of the magic in the star. Tim believes with all his heart that his wish is going to come true.

The wish comes true but not in the way Tim had hoped. He now is a dog, which takes him on an adventure into a dog’s life with its ups and downs. He must find the Professor to help him become a boy again.

Here’s a cute family movie the shows the importance of listening to others, being responsible and paying attention to those around you. Everyone one will enjoy and laugh at some of the comical situations Tim gets into. We award the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages to this movie.
