I just watched eight below with my little nieces and for a disney movie it was real good.

I have to say my favorite was K-9 (the first one), Homeward Bound was good too

I'll have to say K-9, too. I saw it long ago in the theatre with my brother and his family.
I like Lady and the Tramp, though, that is animated.
Haven't seen eight below yet.
/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/27_director.gif Tough question. I have several "favorites".
and I'm sure there are some I've forgotten!!!

There have been several but K-9 is the one we watch the most.

Edit: Did you know the dog who played Jerry-Lee in K-9 was a real police dog? He was shot and killed in the line of duty 2 or 3 years after the movie was made.

Well I certainly liked "K-9" alot but my favorite dog movie was actually about a Lab. "Far From Home - The Adventures Of Yellow Dog" (1995) was just fantastic.
Old Yeller is my all time favorite.
K-9 here! Logan loves it too! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/05_biggrin.gif

I loved Eight Below. That's got my vote for favorite.
For me, K-9 with Jim Belushi and Jerry Lee hands down. The scene with the billiard ball is just the best. You could just smell the fear in those guys! I did not know that Jerry Lee was a real K-9 officer. What a shame that he was killed in the line of duty.

most of them are too SAD

even Eight Below - which I really enjoyed - scenery and photography was just awesome - who would have thought that walrus'/sea lions [??] were so SCARY!!!!!


"K-9" is definately one of my all-time faves. Wasn't too impressed with the sequels, though.

"Eight Below" was okay. Not as good as I thought it'd be.

If we include animated movies, "Balto" is pretty good too.

If it has dogs in it, I'll probably watch it. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/05_biggrin.gif I may change the channel part-way through if it's really bad.

Anyone remember a made-for-TV movie called "Atomic Dog?" Was on USA um-teen years ago starring a white GSD with black markings 'painted' on. Was a pretty cheesy movie, but I liked it for the dogs. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/01_smile.gif

Amazingly enough, "K-9" was just on Encore today. I saw it with the dogs. Odin was paying rapt attention as was, interestingly enough, Frigga. Frigga hasn't been so interested in TV as Odin. It surprised me to see her paying so much attention to the show. When Jerry Lee howled both my dogs howled with him!

It's been years and years since I saw that movie. I must confess I hadn't remembered it so well. I'll rate it equal now to my other favorite "Far From Home - The Adventures Of Yellow Dog". I guess that movie just struck a cord because I also was once a lonely boy in a strange place with no other friend than my dog.

Yes, so sad to learn here that Jerry Lee died in the line of duty. I found a page that says that's an actual fact. Here it is:

Best line from the movie was Ed O'Neil introducing Belushi to Jerry Lee:

O' Neil: "This dog will respond to any command."

Belushi: "Oh yeah, right, surrre... 'KILL' "


(THUD - Belushi hits the pavement)

O' Neil: "I'd have started out with something more like 'Here boy' ".

"Far From Home - The Adventures Of Yellow Dog"

[/ QUOTE ]
That is My fave too.
And second is Homeward Bound - The incredible journey (the one with the voice overs) only the first one.
K-9 is my fav! Used to watch it with my former GS, Rocki,
but I think it gave her too many ideas... hmmmm /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/22_headscratch.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/34_rotflmao.gif

Turner & Hooch was great too (kinda sad ending though /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/02_frown.gif)

Can't watch Ol' Yeller without a box of kleenex

There was another, Cats & Dogs (I think??) with the evil cat trying to take over the world - that one was cute too /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/05_biggrin.gif

I love K-9, Homeward Bound, the old Incredible Journey and Iron Will.

I haven't seen Eight Below yet. At the top of my rent/buy list.
Eight Below has to be one of the better dog movies made especialy since the dogs' acting was better than the male lead's /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/13_puppy.gif

K-9 and Turner and Hooch are the favs, but would also have to add Beethoven, just for the slobber scenes....

There is an old movie from the 70's titled 'Benji'. Just a sweet little mutt, but you fell in love with him.
Dh bought me K-9 for Christmas because he knew I really wanted that movie. That has to be my favorite dog movie.

Eight Below was great too. I saw that on the plane on our way to Hawaii for our honeymoon in June and I must say that I wish I had a box of Kleenex on hand with me. Nothing like crying your eyes out on an airplane full of strangers.
Lassie Come Home (1943) with Roddy McDowall /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/01_smile.gif I really enjoy K-9 also except for the insulting scene of Jerry Lee having "fun" with a poodle. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/10_eek.gif
