Rock Dog Movie Premiere and a Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Lionsgate Premiere.

A few years ago my nephew visited and asked where I kept my dog. I told him I didn’t have one, and he quickly let me know I was wasting my adulthood. I think he was onto something, but until I move out of my “no dogs allowed” apartment building in Manhattan, I have to get my puppy fix (not to be confused with “puppy fixed,” because those are two VERY different things) elsewhere.

That’s why I’m looking forward to the February 24th release of Rock Dog. It’s a movie about a Tibetan Mastiff who finds a radio and leaves home to fulfill his dream of becoming a musician, but quickly sets in motion a series of unexpected events.

I’m such a sucker for movies that encourage kids to chase their dreams! Today’s Mama wants you to chase your dreams all the way to the theater. That’s why we’re giving away a Rock Dog movie prize pack that includes a $100 Visa gift card to see the film in theaters with your family, as well as a Rock Dog beanie, tambourine, and temporary tattoo.

Rock Dog Movie Giveaway

You’re sure to recognize and love the Rock Dog movie cast. Luke Wilson takes the lead, with Eddie Izzard, J.K. Simmons, Lewis Black, Kenan Thompson, Mae Whitman, Jorge Garcia, Matt Dillon, and Sam Elliott all lending their voices. I can’t wait to see them do their thing on the big screen on February 24th!

    My son dreams of being a firefighter when he grows up. Well, in the past two or three weeks. Before that it was a “worm wrangler.” Whatever the heck that is.
    But hey, firefighter or worm wrangler, it’s all good with me. 🙂

    • Melanie Donahoo 02/22/2017 at 11:51 am

      Ha! I happen to come from a long line of worm wranglers. We call them fishermen. 🙂 A firefighter sounds good too.

    My daughter was asked this question in school. Her answer–Candy Maker. While I couldn’t blame her, I asked her if she wanted to own a candy store where she could design her own candy, sell the candy, decorate the store, and experiment with flavors. To that, she responded, “As long as it is Dylan’s Candy Bar!” My son on the other hand, wants to be a guitarist and a rock star. He can’t wait for the movie to come out. Thanks for considering us!
