GREYFRIARS BOBBY (1961)

The story of a dog who, after his owner dies of pneumonia, remains faithful and takes to sleeping on his master’s grave. He refuses to be adopted by another owner. Soon the town of Edinburgh learns to love the dog and he becomes a sort of mascot. The dog is super cute and the thought of a sweet puppy sleeping on the grave of his owner makes me want to cry, but overall the movie was just OK. It doesn’t seem to have too much of a story arc so it does get a bit boring. The interesting thing about it is that it is based off a true story. Bobby was a real jack terrier in Edinburgh who sat at his master’s grave for 14 years, until his own death. Oh man, here come the tears.
