    The Review

    Bella is a rambunctious pup who had a complicated start in life. She may have been born a stray but she was not destined to stay that way. When her mother was taken away, she was left to fend for herself. Luckily, a momma cat took her in and taught her that love was much more than it appeared. That simple lesson would help Bella throughout the adventure called life. Shortly thereafter, she would find her boy. Lucas and Bella became inseparable. The only problem is that Lucas and his mom can’t have a dog in their current apartment. Soon, that wouldn’t be their only problem. Bella is identified as a dangerous animal. Lucas must make a hard choice to say goodbye or move. While all of this is happening, Lucas sends Bella to stay with some friends. Bella doesn’t understand and just wants to get home to Lucas. In Homeward Bound fashion, Bella gets loose and tries to find her way home. Along the way, she’ll face many hardships but she refuses to give up. Years pass and Lucas has given up hope on ever seeing her again. Was the journey just too much? Too far? What happens, in the end, may take you by surprise. This story is reminiscent of Homeward Bound but doesn’t quite match up. The graphics and redirection in the story are distracting at times and the subject matter that causes Bella to get separated from Lucas will certainly amplify emotions. It addresses a controversial subject but leaves out many details. Though not for everyone, it’s a cute story that definitely has memorable moments.
