Watch The Movie With Your Dog!
If you haven’t seen Flash Gordon yet, I recommend watching it with your pups. They’ll get one of the best naps of their entire lives, just like my dog Sara did!
There’s also a chance that General Kala erased your memory, and you just don’t remember seeing it, so you may need to watch it again. It’s available for purchase on many streaming channels.
