Los Angeles, May 16 (IANS): Actor Dennis Quaid believes pets teach people a lot about life.
He was happy to open up on this facet through his film "A Dog's Journey".
A sequel to the heartwarming "The Dog's Purpose", the film is directed by Gail Mancuso. Based on a novel by W. Bruce Cameron with the same name, "A Dog's Journey" is about the adventures of Bailey (dog) through multiple lives.
"I've always been a dog person and each one I have had has meant a lot to me. They're a member of the family, as well as a sponge that can take on your personality," Quaid said in a statement.
"When they go, it's usually the first time that children learn about death in their life. That's what's so beautiful about these movies, with Bailey's reincarnation and coming back as this same spirit," he added.
Quaid will be seen as Bailey's best friend Ethan. The film is set to release in India on May 17 through Reliance Entertainment.
