Listen, this slideshow could be all Disney movies. Granted. Disney has cornered the market on human and animal friendships. We know this, which is why plenty of Disney and Pixar flicks are included. But they can't all make it. Sorry, Mowgli.

Similarly, magical creatures are not counted as animals in this slideshow. Dragons, unicorns, Wookiees, Mogwai, fairies, iron giants... anything imaginary, while cool, are not included. We're looking for that real-life connection.

Beyond those caveats, we'll reveal nothing else about our special methods for determining this list. But, trust us, they are good... and credible. These are the greatest friendships between human characters and animals in movies.
