As “A Dog’s Purpose” I burst into tears just 15 min after this movie started. All dogs are so adorable and smart (good boys/girls). Comparing to the previous one, this movie features the purpose of Bailey more clearly: to protect CJ. So “A Dog’s Journey” focuses mainly on the relationship between CJ and her family or friends. Tbh, I prefer the previous movie and I’ll give 5 stars to it. However, this movie is also great and you will like it if you have watched the previous one and love dogs.
