They say that dog is “a man’s best friend” for a reason.
It couldn’t be more true!
As we coordinate Zoom calls (new to me!) and settle for smaller gatherings, I’m reminded of the one family member who is always by my side:
My dog, Tommy.
Through these difficult times, he has been there to comfort me—and we’re definitely never 6 feet apart when we’re home!
If you’re a dog lover like me, you know what I’m talking about.
On National Love Your Pet Day, I’ll turn to my pup for one of my favorite activities: movie night.
Does your dog like to watch movies with you Christine? Mine does! I think he’s happy to be the ONLY one getting my attention.
Especially when we find time to watch “Where the Red Fern Grows.” He has plenty of tears to lick off my face, then.
They don’t call me “The Kissy Doctor” for nothing!
But if you’re looking for a movie to watch with your family that won’t tear your heart in two, here are some of my favorites.
However, you still may want to grab the tissues for some of these.
Lady & the Tramp (1955)
The Fox and the Hound (1981)
The Adventures of Milo and Otis (1986)
Turner & Hooch (1989) Homeward Bound (1993)
My Dog Skip (2000)
Because of Winn-Dixie (2005)
The Secret Life of Pets (2016)
A Dog’s Journey (2019)
The Art of Racing in the Rain (2019)
You probably notice these films are all about dogs! I can’t help it, they’re my favorite, and they remind us that our dogs will always be in our corner.
From my pack to yours,
