Doggone Heartwarming

Many of us grew up on animated canine-based classics like Lady and the Tramp, Snoopy, The Fox and the Hound and All Dogs Go to Heaven. Maybe some even named their own pups after one of these famous pooches. Now it's time to share the puppy love with the next generation of viewers. Based on the book by J.R. Ackerley, My Dog Tulip is a classic tale of doggie devotion. But this isn't just any animated film--it's made up of more than 100,000 hand-drawn illustrations made not on paper, but on an electronic drawing tablet. It's a story that will touch audiences of all ages because the theme is something we can all relate to: unconditional love. That maniacal tail-wagging and excited whining is the standard greeting that all dog lovers have come to expect from their pets. Bring the whole family to check out this heartwarming story of our four-legged friends Friday through Sunday at Magnolia at the Modern in Fort Worth. As soon as the film is over, you'll wanna run home and give Fido a hug to say thanks for being such a loyal friend. For more information, call 817-738-9215 or visit themodern.org.
