During some of these sessions I’ve also talked about the shiny dimes I’ve found that I believe my dad’s spirit lets me find in order to lift me up at specific times. These dimes sometimes let me know that whatever decisions I just made were confirmed to be the best and then encouraged me not to question it.
A Dog’s Journey (2019)
The comedy drama fantasy film, A Dog’s Journey, is the sequel to A Dog's Purpose where Ethan (Dennis Quaid) instructs his beloved dog Bailey (Josh Gad) to find and protect his granddaughter CJ (Kathryn Prescott). This emotional journey once again shows the different lives, dog breeds and genders that Baily goes through to find CJ. The movie also stars Marg Helgenberger, Betty Gilpin and Henry Lau.

I loved the first film, A Dog’s Purpose (see tip#1026), and had no idea there was a sequel being made until I saw the trailer. It was such a welcomed surprise though the film unexpectedly explored darker areas of life. And yet it helped make the payoffs for the human characters much more emotional and satisfying. Bailey once again was hilarious and highly entertaining as: an elderly St. Bernard/Australian shepherd mix; a female beagle named Molly; a male mastiff named Big Dog; and a male Yorkshire terrier named Max.
The story was very inspirational in demonstrating Bailey’s passion and perseverance for his mission to continuously find CJ as she got older. The film also showed the power of friendship, family, love, trust and forgiveness when faced with pain and loss. And for me I was sobbing by the end at the message that the people and pets we lose still live on in some other form. The film was a reminder that my dad’s spirit was truly alive and was watching over me with love and continued guidance.
Movies have the power to allow each of us to feel our feelings whether they are happiness, anger, sadness or other emotions. They can give us permission to express trapped emotions that could not have been expressed over the years. Find a film today to help you have a good cry at. Your tears will allow some sunlight to shine through the dark cloud you are under!
