Flashback Friday: 10 Movies That Makes Us Want To Hug Our Dog

As much as we love cats (and we at Buzznet ADORE them!), we also have major love for (wo)man’s best friend: dogs! Our four-legged friends have been featured in countless heartwarming movies, including Tim Burton‘s 1984 short which has finally come to the big screen, Frankenweenie! The 3D black and white flick opens in theaters today and is a classic Tim Burton movie! In honor of Frankenweenie opening today, here are 10 lovable movies that make us want to hug our dog:

1. Old Yeller (1957)

This one brought us to tears, as youngsters AND today! (Spoiler alert: Watch with a full box of tissues)

2. Marley and Me (2008)

Marley may have been naughty and neurotic, but we still loved that little rascal!

3. Bolt (2008)

We know that dogs have amazing senses, but this TV pup really believed he had super powers. So cute! (Bonus: Miley Cyrus plays his human owner!)

4. The Ugly Dachshund (1966)

Great Dane Brutus makes the jump from mischievous dog to a blue ribbon winning Great!

5. Air Bud (1997)

Sure, we can “play” with our pets – but a pet that can literally play a round of basketball with us? Score!

6. All Dogs Go To Heaven (1989)

Re-watching this childhood classic was a bit traumatizing, as the film is rather dark for a children’s film. And it definitely made us want to hug and snuggle with our dogs… for a VERY long time!

7. Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey (1993)

After all that the adorable trio of Chance and Shadow (two dogs!) – along with cat Sassy – had to endure to make their way home, we can’t imagine them having to do that all over again just to be with the family they love!

8. Lady and the Tramp (1955)

This Disney favorite not only made us want to treasure our dogs and treat them better, it also showed us that love exists no matter what species, as Lady and Tramp proved.

9. Beethoven (1992)

Who isn’t more lovable than Beethoven (other than your dog of course)?! The giant St. Bernard stole our hearts as the glue that held the Newton family together in the 1992 flick.

10. Milo and Otis (1989)

This adorable Japanese originated movie about two pals, a cat named Milo and his best friend Otis the pug, is a great example of how to different people (er, animals!) can get along and be the best of friends!

Which movie makes you want to hug your dog most?
