If there's one thing we never tire of here at Gun Dog, it's quoting lines from our favorite movies. We can rattle off scenes from Goodfellas for hours: "Spida, on ya way ovah here, bring me a cuddy and wada, huh." Well, we thought instead of wasting our valuable time doing our best Joe Pesci impersonations around the office, it'd be a bit more productive-and entertaining for you-if we helped you share in the fun.

So we took our passion for great movies and came up with a list of the best dog films of all time.
