In dog news, Megan Leavey hits theaters July 9. The film is the true story of a Marine colonel and her military combat dog, a handsome and vicious German shepherd named Rex. The reviews I read are mostly good, with the strongest coming from Peter Travers in Rolling Stone. One commonality among the reviews: Tissues are a must.
