Successful remake of the 1963 Disney release "The Incredible Journey."

Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey

It's amazing how a cat and two dogs can all get along, get lost far, far away, and find their way back home. Sassy was my favorite. I've always been more of a cat person, but I love dogs, too, just not as much as cats. Their journey seemed tough but they managed to make it through, and also, when Sassy almost drowned, I cried. What can I say, I was a lot younger. Chance is always causing chaos everywhere he goes, which is reminds me of myself. He's young and fearless. Shadow is the older and wiser one. I love golden retrievers, too. The part where he gets stuck in the mud hole is really sad because it makes you think that the other two are just going to leave him there. I definately cried in the end when Sassy and Chance found their way home, the family was happy but sad because Shadow didn't come with them, but then he appeared and it was tears of joy.
