I hadn't read a synopsis or seen any trailers or anything, so the ending, for me, was totally unexpected, and very sad, I absolutely hate Robert Pattinson, but even I'll admit he did alright in this movie, I would definitely recommend it.

Sad film yes. The film didn't focus totally on the dog but a whole family functioning with a cute, dopey pet who causes chaos at every turn which, made it funny but also very emotional as you felt the sadness not just because of the dog but the family too.
