Bobby is a real dog, a Skye terrier to be exact. When his master dies and is buried in Greyfriars Kirk, the dog sleeps on his master's grave at night. Begging for food and playing with the poor children by day, Bobby always returned to the cemetery at days end. Despite the efforts of the cantankerous custodian, Bobby always finds his way into the graveyard. This heartwarming Walt Disney production is based on a true story.

this is a well done Disney picture, guaranteed to melt the heart of any animal lover. Set in Edinburgh at the turn of the century, the film follows the adventures of a cute little Skye terrier named Bobby. When his elderly master dies, the loyal dog refuses to leave the grave. Eventually Bobby is persuaded to venture into town and play with the local children, but at night he runs back to the cemetery and his masters grave. Word of the dogs odd behavior spreads throughout Edinburgh, and Bobby becomes quite a local celebrity,it is based on a true story this movie.
a real tear jerker~!

A Walt Disney Film, note I said Walt Disney, made when you could trust a Disney Movie to be free from today?s filth seen on the screen. This is a story about a small little dog, who's long time friend passes away, and the little dog sits on the old mans grave every night, despite everyone's attempt to keep him from doing it. Movie was made in 1961 when just about anything Disney touched turned to gold. This is a great story for animal lovers and Children under 13. I have to give it 4 stars.
