10 Holiday Specials to Watch With Your Pets

Tis the season for television specials! While there are countless different shows and movies to choose from, naturally, we love the ones about animals. We’ve put together a list of 10 just off the top of our heads:

Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever

Can a movie based on an Internet meme be any good? New this year, Grumpy Cat has her own Christmas movie so you can find the answer to this question.

Olive, the Other Reindeer

A play on words from the classic song turns the line “All of the other reindeer…” into Olive, the Other Reindeer, but she doesn’t laugh or call anyone names. This pooch steps up and saves Christmas when one of the reindeer is hurt and can’t pull the sleigh.

Shrek the Halls

In this television special, all of your favorite characters from the “Shrek” movies tell their favorite Christmas stories, including Puss in Boots, who tells his version of the story of Santa Claus.

The Dog Who Saved Christmas

Just when it seems that the Bannister family’s dog Zeus is the worst guard dog ever, the title gives away the ending.

A Garfield Christmas Special

Garfield isn’t thrilled to be going to the farm with Jon and Odie. But then, he gives Grandma the best present ever – and learns the true meaning of Christmas.

Santa Buddies: The Legend of Santa Paws

This film features the famous Disney Buddies who, of course, save Christmas.

The 12 Dogs of Christmas

In this 2005 movie, Dog-lover Emma organizes an epic holiday fundraiser to save a puppy orphanage, and she and the dogs manage to show everyone the true meaning of Christmas during the Depression.

The Nine Lives of Christmas

When a stubborn bachelor discovers a stray cat at his door, he starts to see that companionship is not so bad – then he meets a veterinary student and wonders if the single life isn’t for him after all.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

Who can forget this classic? While the Grinch is stealing Christmas, his dog Max steals the show!

A Charlie Brown Christmas

This annual tradition that dates back to 1965 may be the best dog Christmas special ever.

Whether your favorites are here or you love something else entirely, we hope you’ll get a chance to cuddle up on the couch with your furry family members and watch one or two. Enjoy, and happy holidays from Coon Rapids Pet Hospital!
