    I'm with you there, and probably wont watch the movie even when it comes on HBO. I cant even watch the ASPCA commercials.

    I'm sitting here and on the love seat opposite me are mother and daughter dogs, snoozing butt to butt like book ends. This is what I like to watch.

    Oops!, dad rustled a chip ag in the other room and sleeoing dogs vacated faster than you can say "chip bag"!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I thought it was an excellent movie. War is not pretty. Actually, I had misgivings about seeing it because I am an animal lover (I even cry watching Lassie). But, when the movie was over...I was very glad I had gone to see it.

    I saw the movie, too and thought it was great. It does awaken us to the horrors of war; but it ended on a happier note.

    If politicians and rulers of countries were in the front lines there would be no wars!

    That's not exactly true. When kings led their own armies to war, there were as many wars or more than now. Mankind does not practice peace on a national level.

    Although exceptions don't make the rule, my DH is making a civil war quilt that commemorates a Civil War Dog, "Sally." There's also a monument for her in PA.

    Do you think the draft can not be reinstated? I think that if there were no evil there would be no wars.

    I was also hesitant to see the movie, and a couple of scenes shocked my 'ignorance' of war. It is my understanding that 14 different horses were used to make the film, none of them injured in any way. It's not just Germany that can be evil, look what we did to the Indians. The movie was great, I'm glad I went to see it.

    I saw the movie. It was a terrible war with a lot of lives lost. As for the horses they were expendable. Not my way of thinking. Wish I could afford to have more thatn I already do. In WW2, dogs was the expendale commondity. Many where left or shot when no longer needed and they didn't want to bring them all back home
