Classic Movies Starring Dogsby Coach Lilly 9.29.17
Here at DoggieNation, we’re all about living an active, sporty lifestyle with your dog. But with fall weather arriving and colder winds blowing, sometimes all you want to do is Netflix and cuddle with your dog. For those times, we bring you a list of classic movies starring dogs. Grab a blanket, some popcorn for you and some dog treats for your dog, and get cozy.
Summer may be over, but you can relive summer days anytime of the year with the classic baseball movie The Sandlot. The dog in the Sandlot isn’t just a dog—he’s a legend. The boys call him The Beast. Funny, nostalgic, and endlessly quotable, you’ll be craving s’mores by the end of this movie.
Yes, it’s a movie about a dog playing basketball, and we love it. Then again, we may be biased—we think dogs look amazing in sports jerseys. But the movie is not just about a dog playing hoops. It’s also about a lonely boy named Josh who finds that a dog really is a boy’s best friend. Dogs provide unconditional love, and that’s exactly what Buddy gives to Josh. This movie also has a lovely, touching soundtrack.
Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey
Another movie with a wonderfully inspiring soundtrack, Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey introduces us to Shadow, Chance, and Sassy, two dogs and a cat that just want to get home to their family, even if they have to cross rivers and mountains to get there. At times thrilling, hilarious, and heartbreaking, this movie is one to re-watch with the whole family.
Lady and the Tramp
Who can forget the iconic spaghetti scene from Lady and the Tramp? Watch this adorable Disney animated classic, the story of an elegant cocker spaniel named Lady and the “footloose and collar-free” stray dog Tramp, and we guarantee you will be humming “Bella Notte” afterwards.
This 1957 film can still make people cry. The movie, set in post-Civil War Texas, shows how a family came to love and respect a stray dog they called Old Yeller. Old Yeller’s heroic acts are more proof of why dogs are famous for their loyalty and courage. We won’t give away the ending, but don’t watch this one without tissues handy.
The Wizard of Oz
Can you imagine the Wizard of Oz without Toto? Of course not! The extremely cute Cairn Terrier sets the story in motion.
