Scenes shot in the kennel were filmed in an actual kennel. For the scene where the puppy is escaping the shelter and slipping and sliding on the floors, the area was cleared of all hazards. The trainers used verbal comands to call the puppy who responded with enthusiasm and a natural lack of agility. When the pup urinates on the animal control officer, a clear tube was gently taped to the pup's belly and apple juice was pumped through this. The trainer was below the actor holding the puppy for this and caught the puppy as the actor reacted letting the pup fall. In scenes where animals appear wounded, fake non-toxic stage blood was used and applied by the make-up department. See more »

Sometimes sad, more often funny look at a dog viewing us humans from a peculiar perspective. Nice little show with a good message about family, quality time, and not taking things for granted. Plus, the animal actors were some of the best I've seen. Cool show. P.S. If I ever get reincarnated, I hope it's as Sandra Bullock's #1 man. Or Faith Hill. Or Jane Seymour. Or....
