Is there anything better than snuggling under a cozy blanket and binging on Christmas movies with your dog?  Hello, Hallmark Channel!  Or maybe you’re like me and are still wrapping presents (all that dog/cat hair on the tape is just added holiday spirit, right?)

Popcorn is one of the few human treats that we give Bernie and Violet.  As soon as the first kernel pops Violet races to the microwave and waits for her snack.  K and I also love popcorn (so much so that before the pandemic the AMC near our home knew me as the person who would walk in, get popcorn, and go home to watch a movie).

I know you’ve got a lot going on right now, so I’ve rounded up some of the best options for a Christmas movie night with your dog (beyond any Disney movie, because those are always going to be on my list).  Check them out:
