Happy National Dog Day! Are you celebrating with your dog?

In honor of the occasion — and in honor of my own dog, Rey (pictured above — and yes, as in Rey like in Star Wars),  I joined FandangoNOW in curating a list of my favorite dog movies for anyone who's lounging at home with their own best friend and wants to celebrate by watching some great canine-driven movies.  

All of these films — and the much larger definitive list — are available to check out right now on FandangoNOW. 

1.       Lady and the Tramp

2.       The Peanuts Movie

3.       Turner & Hooch

4.       The Secret Life of Pets

5.       Marley & Me

6.       101 Dalmatians

7.       Homeward Bound

8.       Cujo

9.       Old Yeller

10.     Frankenweenie

These films embody the adventure, camaraderie and heroic spirit of our best friends, and remind us why dogs are so special. Lady and the Tramp is my favorite because Rey is a Cavalier King Charles spaniel, and seeing those long floppy ears on Lady makes me smile and warms my heart. When I watch these movies, I feel a universal connection to dog owners and that brings back a nostalgic happiness of sharing my life with my dog.
