My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
A friend of mine is trying to find out the name of a movie that she used to watch as a kid but can't remember the name.
A church was having a Christmas pageant and a bunch of dirty, poor (could be homeless even) children want to be in the pageant but the church members don't want them to be in it because their dirty. The story, I believe, basically revolves around these children, the pageant and whether to include them or not.
That's all I have...any idea??

Here's the description of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever from Amazon. Let me know if this is what you are talking about.
Grace Bradley (Loretta Swit) is called in to direct the community church's child production of the Christmas play. Unfortunately, this is the year the six Herdman children--the dirtiest, most feared neighborhood kids--decide to bully themselves into the lead roles. Barbra Johnson wrote the teleplay based on her novel for this 1978 TV broadcast that has become a favorite over the years. A 9-year-old Fairuza Balk makes her debut as Grace's daughter and narrates the story centering on the seemingly parentless troupe of ragtag ruffians. Of course, the town believes the play is hopelessly lost, but this is Christmas Eve and miracles do happen. Kids can find meaning in the Bible's tale and the Herdmans certainly can bring a fresh take on the age-old story. Not as rambunctious or preachy as later modern-day Christmas tales, the less-than-an-hour production stays away from giving anyone his or her comeuppance and is easily digestible for the whole family.
