Have you watched the movie about Max?

I stumbled across a good movie the other day I wanted to tell you about if you haven’t watched it already. It’s called Max. Max is a military dog serving with his handler on the front lines in Afghanistan. They send Max into areas first to sniff out weapons. Anyway, I don’t want to give away the whole plot because you should see it yourself, but something happens to Max’s handler and Max is traumatized. He can’t do his job any more and they ship him home. The only person he can really connect with is the younger brother of his handler. He ends up being taken in and cared for by his handler’s family. Like a lot of teenagers, the boy is reluctant to take on such a responsibility and the two are slow to warm up to one another.

As with all good movies, there are unexpected plot twists and excitement and danger. I have to warn you that I was sniffling a bit at the end, but tried to hide the tears from my family. Oh yeah, speaking of family, this movie is very family friendly. I have a lot of respect for the military and love seeing stories about the dogs, so I’m glad I found this movie. Look for it, you will enjoy it.
