With my second loss of network, due to the flooding, I found myself sitting down to watch one of the DVD’s I was given for Christmas by my Mum.

Red Dog  (2011).  A fantastic tale, based on a true story of a dog that became an inspiration to many in an outback mining town in Western Australia. With a ripper Australian cast, and amazing 70’s Oz rock soundtrack, its a movie that is going to make you laugh and cry.  Even if you aren’t a dog person, I highly recommend it, when you get the chance.

 

Johnny and Red Dog. Best Mates.

 

Cast:
Josh Grant, Rachael Taylor, Noah Taylor, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Paul Blackwell, Luke Ford, Bill Hunter, Tiffany Lyndall-Knight, Alex Williamson, John Batchelor, Eamon Farren, and Koko as Red dog.

In the tradition of Lassie, and adapted from the Louis de Bernieres best-selling novel, Red Dog is based on a true story. In this warm-hearted story, Red Dog becomes a legend with the wild outback locals. Along the way, Red Dog finds the person he’s been searching for…Sometimes you pick the dog. Sometimes the dog picks you!
