A fun, heartwarming story of a small Skye Terrior who spent his remaining life resting and guarding his master's grave. The tale is true and from the events that are recorded from the mid 1800s in Edinburgh, Scotland. You will be richly blessed by seeing this dramatic tale of one dog, and how he came to be loved by an entire town, for decades and decades.
Disney has taken the account of Bobby, the dog to become known as "Greyfriars Bobby", from the book by the same name written by Eleanor Atkinson, an Indiana author for youth. The DVD Disney film stick closely to the author's account which is known to be a bit of an embellishment to the actual account, making it a bit more dramatic for children. It is a superb story, and a beautiful and exciting film created in the always high quality of any Disney production. This is a true FAMILY FILM, appreciated by all ages--4 to 104 years.
Sets are typical Disney delights, historically accurate, beautifully presented, and worthy of the "CLASSIC" labeling from all aspects of the production.
Let yourself slip back into the 1850's and 1860's of old Edinburgh and experience Greyfriars Bobby and his story firsthand.
Also, pick up the book, Greyfriars Bobby, by Eleanor Atkinson, and gift it to a dog lover or a child. See my 5-star review under books.
