    That was pretty sad. I can see why someone would cry about it, I was close.

    Off topic, whoever made this video should be a Hollywood director.

    I probably would've been more sympathetic if half of it wasn't a camera whore smoking, biking and crying. So basically, I only felt bad for the dog.

    I know it's a tragic moment but do people really feel the need to parade their emotions on the big screen?

    I had a dog ever since I was born die a few years ago, she wasn't put down, but we knew it was coming. The more you get attached, the harder it is to let something go.

    Just like the loss of another human being, you grieve at first and then move on. That's life and just be happy that you gave that dog the best life it could have asked for.

    I cried at the end of Gran Turino

    And when *spoilers*







    You've kinda got to say what you're gonna be spoiling :p

    No problem for me though, since I can't stand that show.

    Anyway, the only movie I've come close to crying in is Birdemic: Shock and Terror, while watching with a friend. And that's because it was so, so hilarious. Only time I've laughed so hard I've had tears in my eyes.

    I consider myself an empathetic person, I'm just emotionally dead :(

    I didn't watch it, because I know it would make me cry. I don't watch animal movies at all....they almost always have a scene where the animals going to die, gets lost, gets beaten by an angry villian, or is used in scientific experiments. I've never seen "Old Yeller" either. Can't do it.

    This video made me sad the first time someone linked to it.

    It's kind of worn off by the 9th or 10th time...

    Heh, it's pretty strange that I always am much more saddened by animal deaths than human deaths. I hate it when movies practically put target markers on the dogs head; I Am Legend is a bit offender. From the moment you see that dog, you know he's dead before the end of the movie.

    The Hogan will say this bruther.

    Nothing wrong with a man crying. If someone says that a man crying is a wuss then they're full of **** bruther.

    I'm sure they cried before dude..... Nothing wrong with a 22 year old man crying bruther.

    I never cried. Not even when I came out of my mothers womb. My doctor tried to stab me with a burning crucifix.

    The only movie that ever almost made me cry was Click, of all movies

    Also Clannad After Story made me cry, and Chobits got me THAT close

    Men In Black 3 made me shed some tears.

    *Spoiler*
    When young Agent J (probably four years old, IDK) find his father dead, and then Agent K flashes the kid telling him his father was a hero.
    *Spoiler*

    I was surprised by this too because I haven't been able to cry in a long time...

    I never cry at stuff on a screen, but that broke that streak, a few years after Marley and Me did the same. It is sad to lose a friend, animal or not.

    Yeah Click was surprisingly sad. The whole "it was all just a dream" thing was just so cliched though.

    I hated MiB3 for that scene. It's a cheap, overused trope in a movie that didn't really have a whole lot original going for it in the first place... and darn it if it didn't get a little dusty in that theater anyway.

    Easy. You realize you don't have a choice.

    I've lost many pets over the years. Most recently I lost a cat to liver disease. Technically he was my roommate's cat, but really he adopted both of us after we rescued him as a kitten. He wasn't even 8 years old when he died.

    Somewhere along the way I realized I had what it takes to be a good pet owner (except for a mountain of free time). You must take care of them while they are with you, and you must let them go when the time comes to do so. Enjoy your time together, give them a happy life, but don't let them suffer unnecessarily, and that includes not prolonging any agony at the end. When they are gone, remember them for the good times, and if you still feel the need to love a pet, go to the shelter and find another lucky recipient... that is if some stray doesn't end up adopting you first.

    When it became obvious there was something wrong with the cat, I took him to the vet. When we learned there was nothing more the vet could do, I brought him home for one last goodbye. And had he lived through that night, I would have taken him back to the vet the next morning. That damn cat left us way too soon, and he broke our hearts doing so. But even knowing I might have to go through all that again, I would happily welcome another pet. At least I know we gave him a better life than he would have had, had we left him there beside the road all those years ago.

    Its totally OK. I had to turn it off, because I started to.

    Ive lost a cat this year. His name was Bob. And he was the coolest cat to ever walk the earth. And I miss him terribly. Sometimes I think I hear him because I was so used to him being around.

    One of my dogs is getting really old, and it is really starting to bum me out. But I make sure she is a healthy as she can be, so I have her as long as possible. She is 12 now. I can't believe I have had her for almost 1/3 of my life.

    I won't watch it because Where the Red Fern grows/Marley and Me were hard enough to watch.
