Dog Weepies 1

For my recent birthday I asked my daughters to get me as many as they could of the 10 DVDs ranked in the Guardian by film critic Anne Billson as the top ten Dog Weepies. My Dog Skip (dir: Jay Russell, 2000, starring Frankie Muniz, Kevin Bacon, and wonderful Enzo - who played Eddie in Frasier - as Skip, see above) is pretty much my idea of a perfect dog movie, touching as it does on a number of themes (coming-of-age, the construction of masculinity) and having at its heart a warm, believable, unsentimental relationship between human (boy) and dog. In the Guardian it was ranked at 7. How would the other films compare? Please click on image to find out ...
