Sweet, touching, and funny, this family film about a young city girl training a cattle dog for an agility competition would easily rival anything ABC Family currently broadcasts. It’s a real charmer with an irresistibly cute and peppy performance by actress Dora Madison Burge (TV’s “Friday Night Lights”). Directors Kevin and Robin Nations have a lot to be proud of.
“My Dog the Champion” screens Saturday, Oct. 26 at 1 p.m. (Alamo Drafthouse Village)
