“The 12 Dogs Of Christmas” Is a movie for the whole family that was made by two families, the Kragens and the Merrills. Academy Award winning writer/director Keith Merrill has give this project a beautiful look and it’s a very special story for the holiday season. This film has a lot of love in it. Interestingly the same young men who did “Napoleon Dynamite” produced it but other than their mutual low budgets there is little similarity between the two movies.
