Today is a special day...it's the day we celebrate puppies!

For those of you who have a puppy of your own, I'm sure it makes being cooped up in your house not so bad.

These furballs of joy have their own national holiday and today we are celebrating it by sending our picks for movies that have adorable pups in them.

We've decided to choose one movie that's available on Netflix, one movie that you can stream on Hulu, and one that you can find on Amazon Prime Video.

Netflix Pick:

  • Benji

It will be a risky mission, but their dog Oddball will have to be up for the challenge.
