Reader's Choice: Share Your Fave Animal Movies With Us!

After working through a list of my favorite animal movies, I realized there were a lot of great films I couldn't include in the top 10 — from Homeward Bound to 101 Dalmatians, there are many classics I simply love to watch again and again. Because it's nearly impossible to come up with them all on my own, I want you to share your favorite movies in your comments below. All I ask is that there is an animal playing a fairly large part in the movie, and next week I'll create a new list of all our fave flicks!

• Oh Heavenly Dog (1980) –starring Benji, Chevy Chase and Jane Seymour. A private investigator dies and is sent back as a dog to investigate his own murder. • The Great Outdoors (1988)- You have bears and talking raccoons, perfect combo. • The Adventures of the Wilderness family (1975) its about a family who has a sick daughter so they move out of the crowded city and into the wilderness, If you were a child of the 70’s you will remember this fondly. They acquire a lot of pets. • The Bear (1988) about an orphan bear who hooks up with an older bear to survive. Got an oscar nod • The Yearling (1946) One of the first movies I remember that made me cry as a child, and want to live in the woods! • Born Free (1966) a movie based on the bestseller about a couple in Africa who raise Elsa a lion cub, it won 2 oscars!

Yay, I'm so glad to find other Milo and Otis fans - whenever I mention it to my friends, they look at me like I'm crazy! And I still kind of love the Lion King too.

101 Dalmations is my FAVORITE!!! Dunston Checks In also made me want a monkey very badly when I was little.

Scratch that, Milo & Otis is my second favourite. The Secret of NIMH is #1. IMO, it's one of the best movies ever made, not just the best animal film.

Milo & Otis!! I loved it as a child and I still love it today. :D It's what made me fall in love with pugs.
