Featured Animal Action

Ryan has a dog and he is seen in several scenes in the beginning of the film. The dog is seen walking from A to B from the house to the car and back into the house. Later he is seen approaching the kitchen table where he snatches a piece of toast. He is next seen at the bathroom window with his paws hanging from the outside in, on the window sill. Holding the bread, he opens his mouth, letting it drop into Ryan's lap. The trainer placed the dog on his mark and cued him with verbal and hand signals.
