Movies and Big Paws
« on: July 23, 2005, 09:58:05 am »
So the other night I was remembering one of the funniest movies with a Newf in it- Police Academy 2- and was rolling on the ground from the mental images I had. It is sooooo funny and if you have not seen it you have to rent it!

This got me thinking and wondering what other great movies are out there with our big pawed dogs in them?? Here are the ones that I can remember off the top of my head.
1. Best in Show
2. Turner and Hooch
3. The new movie Must love dogs

And now my brain is locked. So, what great movies do you know of with big dogs in them?
Hugs,

The Ugly Dachshund is my FAVE all time movie.  In fact there's a Dane (I know just Danes, I haven't broadened my horizons yet) site with a list of movies with Danes in them.

Don't forget the most famous saint bernard ever - beethoven ;)

Also, you can't forget Fang from Harry Potter. I love him - I want a dog just like him.
