The movie recounts a few anecdotes about nine-year-old Willie growing up in Yazoo City, Mississippi. The son of a veteran of the Spanish Civil War and a housewife, Willie is the daily victim of three school bullies. Then one day the title character, a dog he names Skip (bought by his mother over his dad's objections) comes into his life, and everything changes. The dog is Willie's entry into a world of new and even stronger and closer friendships. Thus, Skip teaches him that the strongest and truest friendships can be just as wonderful and precious like life. My Dog Skip earned $35,512,760 on a $7 million budget. Wikipedia
