If the phrase “God loves a terrier” doesn’t mean anything to you, I’ve got a movie you need to see. In honor of this month’s Family + Pets theme, we racked our brains thinking of the best movies that celebrate how special pets are in a family’s life. I can never handle movies where pets are hurt or lost, so I chose a film that is the happiest, funniest and most heart-warming celebration of fuzzy friends: Best in Show. A look inside the lives (canine and human) of those competing in the fictional Mayflower Dog Show, Best in Show is perhaps best known for the obsessive owners behind the adorable dogs. Parker Posey is an uptight Starbucks-drinking Weimaraner owner, Christopher Guest is a bloodhound owner who also happens to love ventriloquism and, my favorite, Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara are a couple so dedicated to their terrier that they record an album of terrier songs. No matter which couple or dog is your favorite, this is a film worth watching — and re-watching and re-watching. The laughs — and the cute dogs — just keep coming. Here’s to Busy Bee, Proud Mary and Loopy and Harlan Pepper who just couldn’t stop “namin’ nuts.” xo, grace
