funny, heart-warming Christmas movie.
I am an animal person. Always have been. Since I was born, my parents or my family have always had a dog.
Except for when we couldn’t have one while my brother was being treated for a pet allergy or when my landlord has forbidden owning one.
So whether you’re like me and need your doggie fix or just need a good movie to watch with the family, here are some of the good dog movies on Netflix.
I wasn’t around in 1955, but I’m so glad that Disney introduced the world to my FAVORITE Disney movie of all time – Lady & the Tramp.
This actually was the first Christmas dog movie!
The movie begins on Christmas morning in 1909, in a quaint Midwestern town. The head of household, “Jim Dear,” gives his wife “Darling” an American Cocker Spaniel puppy that she names Lady.
Lady enjoys a happy life with the couple and befriends two local neighborhood dogs, Jock, a Scottish terrier, and Trusty, a bloodhound.
