Megan Leavey Movie

May 31, 2017

I’m looking forward to the premiere of this movie on June 8th. Here’s the text that accompanies this trailer on YouTube: MEGAN LEAVEY is based on the true life story of a young marine corporal whose unique discipline and bond with her military combat dog saved many lives during their deployment in Iraq. When she is assigned to clean up the K9 unit after a disciplinary hearing, Leavey identifies with a particularly aggressive dog, Rex, and is given the chance to train him. Over the course of their service, Megan and Rex completed more than 100 missions until an IED explosion injures them, putting their fate in jeopardy.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

This week, we announced the winner of the 22nd annual Ugly Dog Contest in Del Mar. Although this particular one redeems itself by raising money for local charities, I have mixed feelings about these contests. Overall they look fun, but I have a basic problem with making fun of anyone’s looks. What do you think?

What do you think of ugly dog contests?
