Best Dog Gone Dog in the West

We've enjoyed utilizing our metropolitan library system this summer for some great books to read. But we've also enjoyed the free movie rentals too! I've been checking out one or two a week for us to watch and so far, the girls' hands down favorite has been Old Yeller. They love the dog (of course) and the situations he gets himself into. They are sad when Old Yeller gets "hydrophobia" and have asked all kinds of questions about it including, "Will a wild wolf ever jump out and bite me and give me hydrophobia?" So far this week, the girls have watched the movie twice and talk about it often. I think they secretly want a "pretty yeller dog" for themselves. Someday perhaps....

In addition to Old Yeller, we've also checked out some other Disney classics such as Swiss Family Robinson and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. It has been fun to see the girls watch these movies for the first time.

What were some of your favorite childhood movies?

I always loved Swiss Family Robinson. I secretly wanted to live on an island in a cool tree home like they did!!!
