Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Dog Gone

A Reel Leadership Article

My latest book, Reel Leadership, is now available on Amazon. If you love movies and leadership, you will love this book.

Dog Gone is a heart-warming, true story. Based on the real-life events of Fielding Marshall (Johnny Berchtold) and his Golden Retriever dog Gonker, your heartstrings will be pulled, twisted, and reunited.

While out on the Appalachian Trail, Gonker takes off after a fox. Fielding and his friend, Nate (Nick Peine), look furiously for the lost 6-year-old dog. They eventually give up for the night and head home.

Fielding knew time was not on their side. Gonker had Addison’s Disease. Without treatment, his beloved companion would die.

Dog Gone tells the story of Fielding as he searches for his dog. He’s joined on the journey by his father, John Marshall (Rob Lowe), his mother, Ginny Marshall (Kimberly Williams-Paisley), and people from around the world.
