My Dog Skip - Everlasting Friend


based on true story . . . (Willie Morris)

Satu lagi film tentang anjing yang bisa memberikan kita inspirasi mengenai hubungan antar sesama. My Dog Skip film yang lagi-lagi buat gw nangis sampe-sampe tissue abis 3 box -__- (baca : yang ini lebay) Film ini menceritakan bagaimana kehidupan seorang anak kecil, Willie Morris yang sangat suram berubah menjadi begitu indah berkat kehadran anjing bernama Skip. Meskipun pada awalnya ayah Willie gak bisa menerima kehadiran anjing ini namun akhirnya ayahnya sadar betapa besar pengaruh yang diberikan Skip pada Willie. Dari seorang anak kuper yang sering di bully oleh teman - temannya menjadi orang yang patut diperhitungkan kehadirannya, dan itu semua berkat Skip. Karena Skip pulalah Willie dapat dekat dengan cewek paling populer Rivers Applewhite (Caitlin Wachs). Banyak kisah yang dilalui Skip dan Willie yang membuat Willie makin mantap menuju masa depannya, baik itu saat senang ataupun sedih, saat Willie marah kepada Skip karena mengacaukan pertandingan Baseballnya namun pada akhirnya Willie sadar kalau dia bukan apa-apa tanpa Skip. Sampai pada suatu hari Skip harus pergi untuk selama-lamanya karena peradangan sendi, namun persahabatan Willie dan Skip tetap terjaga sampai selamanya :')

Film produksi tahun 2000 ini dibintangi oleh Frankie Muniz (Willie Morris), Diane Lane ( Willie's Mother), Kevin Bacon ( Willie's Father), Luke Wilson (Dink Jenkins), de el el  menurut gw film ini pas banget buat ditonton karena memiliki nilai moral yang sangat bagus. Bagaimana ikatan hubungan manusia dengan seekor anjing yang benar-benar sangat kuat, seorang yang rapuh namun berubah berkat hadirnya seekor anjing, dan masih banyak lagi :) So, buruan nonton film ini dijamin deh, gak hanya menghibur tapi juga mudah-mudahan punya makna tersendiri buat hidup kamu :) See ya . . .

My Dog Skip Quotes :

Why in childhood and youth do we wish time to pass so quickly - we want to grow up so fast - yet as adults we wish just the opposite?

         I almost lost old Skip that day. Even as he was sleeping on the operating table, he was still teaching me. That day, I became a young man. Why, in childhood and youth, we wish time to pass so quickly. We want to grow up so fast. Yet, as adults, we wish just the opposite.

Like all dogs, Skip was colorblind. He made friends easily with people of all races and origins. The town was segregated back then, but as we know, dogs are a whole lot smarter than people.

       Old Skip was 11, and feeble with arthritis, but he never lost that old devilish look in his eye. He made my room his own. Came across an old photo of him not long ago. His little face, with the long snout sniffing at something in the air. His tail was straight out, pointing. Eyes were flashing in some momentary excitement. He always loved to be rubbed on the back of his neck. And when I did it, he'd yawn and he'd stretch, reach out to me with his paws, as if he was trying to embrace me. I received a transatlantic call one day. "Skip died," Daddy said. He and my mama wrapped him in my baseball jacket. "They buried him out under our elm tree," they said. That wasn't totally true. For he really lay buried in my heart.
