Default Hallmark Hall Of Fame.

"A Dog Named Christmas".

This is so good. Anyone else watching?

I have a huge lump in my throat. Must be that time of year.

The commercials are getting to me as well.

It was a very good show. Our dog Rudi aka Rudolph came home with us on Christmas Eve 2004.

I thought the message at the end regarding fostering and adopting from shelters was very touching.

Yes Gary it's worth watching. A feel good story.

Beats a lot of the stuff that is on. The commercials are mini stories in them self.

To play Scrooge's advocate here: Am I the only person on this forum who remembers when HHoF showed serious drama -- Shakespeare, Shaw etc. -- literary adaptations (Camille, A Tale of Two Cities), and even opera (about 5 different versions of Amahl and the Night Visitors) and didn't shy away from gritty fare like Gideon's Trumpet (about an indigent small-time con who argues all the way to the Supreme Court that he had a right to a lawyer when he was tried for his misdemeanor offense) rather than feel-good sap? If you like the sugar and spice, fine, YMMV. I'm just allergic to anything too sentimental

sometimes a really sappy movie just feels good and is nice and entertaining.

we taped the Christmas dog special and watched the end of it last night. we were groaning how long it took the dad to FINALLY give in and agree to keep the dog (they drive to the shelter, they bring the dog into the shelter, they drive back home...) ha! (that's a bit of a spoiler)

many, many people watch those shows, and the truth is, the shelter situation with animals is a serious one. it's not a bad way to get the message out there. we adopted our cat from a shelter, she had such a wild personality, I'd bet if we hadn't taken her she wouldn't have made it. once we got her calmed down, she became SO affectionate, we love her dearly.

living here in the city, I enjoyed seeing their farm and farmhouse too. the chocolate fondue scene was gratuitously cruel though, I haven't had chocolate in weeks.

Right you are. Once in a great while Lifetime, or WE or Oxygen, might show something that piques my interest (Oxygen is part of the NBC-verse and they show some of the world figure skating championships and the Olympics) but I have to take sentimental stuff in very small doses. My mom's the same way, she grew up in the Depression, her parents struggled to make ends meet so she doesn't have many fond childhood memories of Xmases past and just isn't sentimental, so I inherited her lack of sentimentality. I'm sure she would be glad to adopt a shelter pet though, except at her age (late 80s) she's just not up to the work that keeping a pet, especially a dog entails

Well Angie and I finally got around to watching this last night. We really enjoyed it.... a great message.

I really thought the dad was going to go back in right away and adopt Christmas, after his son returned him, honoring his commitment on the deal.
