We just found out that our very own WHOWAGWEAR™ mascot, NINJA, will be appearing in the opening credits of a new feature film called, THE DOG WEDDING, which is scheduled to be released on Valentine's Day 2016. It's a great honor and quite exciting — I'm a very proud mama indeed!! We promise to keep you updated as we learn more information, and of course we have to thank our friends and family for supporting our little munchkin in his short but sweet movie debut.
When we received the news, that got my partner and I thinking about great dog films. (Emily recently suggested I watch BOLT, which totally had me laughing - that hamster!! - all the while tugging at my heart strings as well.) So we put together a list of dog movies that we love and wanted to share with you all, in no particular order, but all equally worth watching!
(These are the full versions by the way, so come back on a few rainy days and watch each of them if you can!)
1. BOLT: Humorous and all heart.
The canine star of a fictional sci-fi/action show that believes his powers are real embarks on a cross country trek to save his co-star from a threat he believes is just as real.
2. LADY AND THE TRAMP: The 1955 version, and one of my ultimate favorites ever.
The romantic tale of a sheltered uptown Cocker Spaniel dog and a streetwise downtown Mutt.
3. MARLEY AND ME: Starring Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston. You WILL need a set of tissues on hand.
A family learns important life lessons from their adorable, but naughty and neurotic dog.
4. HOMEWARD BOUND: Who else remembers this one?! When Emily mentioned it, it put a huge smile on my face.
Three pets escape from a California ranch to find their owners in San Francisco.
5. 101 DALMATIONS: The 1961 animated film, featuring one of the most evil villains, Cruella De Vil.
When a litter of dalmatian puppies are abducted by the minions of Cruella De Vil, the parents must find them before she uses them for a diabolical fashion statement.
6. EIGHT BELOW: Based on a true story, starring the late Paul Walker.
Brutal cold forces two Antarctic explorers to leave their team of sled dogs behind as they fend for their survival.
7. OLD YELLER: I have yet to watch this ultimate classic. Not exactly a self-proclaimed "favorite" per se, Emily mentioned that she does remembers growing up watching it, as many others do, which makes it a memorable childhood staple.
A boy brings a yellow dog home. The dog loves the family as much as they love him, but can the love last ?
8. THE FOX AND THE HOUND: While we both love this movie, we wanted to highlight it in honor of our other WHOWAGWEAR™ mascot, GHOST. It's her birthday month and her mama frequently refers to her as "fox," a nickname of hers.
Two childhood friends find themselves forced to become enemies.
