How exciting is it when Hollywood hits a homerun featuring a hero dog and has all the feel good elements you want in a movie with an all-star cast?
Megan Leavey is based on the true-life story of a young marine corporal (Kate Mara) 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.
YOU are invited to attend the movie, and Merrick Pet Care has an opportunity to win tickets on Tuesday, June 6, at #BlogPawsChat. The movie will be on the big screen June 9.
