I NOW REMEMBER WHY I GAVE UP THE FILM BUSINESS...--   IT WAS INTERESTING  and an advertising video........WE GOT THE SHOTS ( TEH CRITICAL PART)  BUT I WAS VERY HAPPY TO GET IN THE CAR AND GO HOME.  MEATY STEVE WENT WITH ME-- HIS FIRST EXPERIENCE WITH FILMING AND WAS AMAZED TO SIT FOR 20 MINUTES WHIULE A WOMAN  CARVED UP A YELLOW HIGH HEALED SHOE-- THAT WAS TEH PROP FOR TEH SHOT WITH BENTLY-- WHO WAS HAPPY TO LIE UNDER TEH DINING ROO0M TABLE AND TRY AND GET THE PURINA CANNED FOOD OUT OF THE TOE OF IT.-- HE HAD TO CHEW-- THEN RAISE HIS HEAD-- NOT TOO DIFFICULT.. BUT THEN... THE DIRECTOR THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A SIMPLE MATTER TO HAVE A DANE WALK UP TO A KITCHEN COUNTER WITH HOT DOGS ON IT AND HELP THEMSELVES TO ONE OF THEM- WELL NOT FOR A DOG LIKE SIZZLE WHO HAS BEEN TOLD EATING OFF THE COUNTER IS A NO  NO-
THE DIRECTOR WAS SHOCKED TO  THINK I NEEDED ONE HOT DOG TO TRY AND GET HER TO EAT THEM- APPARENTLY  THEY HAD ONLY 6 HOT DOGS/WITH ROLLS... AND WANTED  5 OF TEHM IN THE SHOT-
TEH SHOT WAS SPECIFIC AND TEH DETAILS WERE HORRENDOUS.  ALONG WITH NO HOT DOGS FOR PRACTICE,,,,,,,
THIS WAS AN OLDER HOUSE-- GEORGEOUS ---NEXT BUILDING TO IT WAS IN ENGLAND--  HUGE-- HAD A WONDERFUL ANTIQUE BATH TUB  WHICH I KNOW I NEEDED TO FIND ONCE IN MY PAST CAREER
I ASSUMED BEING SO OLD THE KITCHEN  COUNTERS WOULD BEteh lower  28-29 INCHES TALL-- WELL THIS PLACE WAS MEANT FOR THE LARGER/TALLER  BECAUSE ALONG WITH 4 FOOT WIDE DOORS, THE COUNTERS WERE 36 INCHES-- AND ONTO THAT HTEY PUT ON E OF THOSE WOODEN CUTTING BOARDS ON "FEET" WHICH ADDED ANOTEHR 2 INCHES... NO WAY COULD SIZ REACH THE HOT DOGS WITHOUT PUTTINGHER FEET ON THE COUNTER-- BUT THAT WAS NOT THE" REQUIRED SHOT... "  SINSE HER FEET WERE NOT IN THE SHOT, I CALLED FOR And got "an apple" 
an apple in teh film business is a very storong box of reeguloation size with handle holes  maybe 8 x 12 x 20  maybe-
sizzle  had no trouble stepping up on th at box and certainly looking at th hot dogs- 
here is where i got bad...-- with much encoughment she knocked one onto teh floor-- now the director in an effort to preserve his 6 hot dogs grabbed it away from her- she looked at me like..   "i thought..."  so after that , she was really confused--- she would run up and get on  teh apple and look at me... not the hot dogs right in front  of her nose..  so we smeared tehm with purina canned food on teh off camera side  and she did slightly better-- but still avoiding teh hot dog and roll. finally she ate one- swallowing it  whole ( so teh director did not take it from her???) 
technically-- i was also the problem... because as she did teh first opart of coming around the tale and headding for the hot dog counter,, i said  "good girl"-- i shoujldhave said nothing-- because she got inthe habit of stopping where ihad said good girl.  looking back.... i think if i had just called her and said 
 "ok"  it would have released her from her "under command" type behavior..a nd she might have decided it was ok to eat the precious hot dogs.
mean whiloe jimminey and stitch had a fun car ride and lots of people talking to them out the back window-- we never did them- they certainly were puppies.. but they were bigger than the jack russell who likve there-- and teh  neighbor's pug who happened in.
 steve and i ate some of our earnings at the next mcdonalds where i got 4 plain hambergers so we could feed the 4  "working dogs" teh  meat patty and save teh rolls for peanut butter sandwiches fo r my next  lunch.
**
in retrospect.... on a movie set (  union job) no one is ever allowe to touch the animal or any of the animal props--  directors can get  very focused on teh needed shot and forget---- this guy was very lucky- with both siz and teh hot dog and bentley with the shoe full of canned food - he grabbed tehm away from each dog-- he coudl hav lost his arm,-- and it would have been the dogs fault. !!
**
i did a job once for houghlin mifflin school text book-- with a corgi-- and the director wanted to move the corgi over an inch- and did not ask her first so she bit  his thumb  badly !    it certasinly was not her fault--- i knew that dog-- wonderful dog -- did many great jobs  with  'connie the corgi"  i learned early with her-- you told her what was going to happen an asked her to  do things- if yuo behaved - she did-- otherwise she bit you..  not  a nip.... a  bite.  i had no problem with her...  i learned
***
FYI-- an apple is that sturdy box-- and a 1/2 apple is 4 x 12 x 20  --- a 1/4 apple is   2 x 12 x 20 and there is a pancake. 1 x 12 x 20  an absolute necessity   on any film  job .. along with a funny  duct tape  (? gaffer's tape?)that does not pull pain off where ever you stick it/-- and a kraft table for everyone  has doughnuts coffee bannanas, tyelonol  cream cheese and bagels.
***
it is rough work even if it is alot of sitting around.

  1. LOVE SPELLS THAT WORKS I am sharing this testimony to partners suffering in their relationships because there is an enduring solution.
    My husband left me and our 2 kids for another woman for 3 years. I tried to be strong just for my kids but I could not control the pains that torment my heart. I was hurt and confused. I needed a help, so i did a research on the internet and came across a site where I saw that dr ojoka a spell caster, can help get lovers back. I contacted him and he did a special prayer and spells for me. To my surprises, after some days, my husband came back home. That was how we reunited again and there was a lot of love, joy and peace in the family.
    You can as well contact dr ojoka , a powerful spell-caster for solutions on his contact drojokaspelltemple @ gmail com or directly on Whats App: +2348144172934

  2. Hello, my name is RITA CARMEN and I have been trying to get pregnant for over 12 years. i have been looking for ways online for so long, I first did Depo Provera Shot which i consecutively took every three months in order to get pregnant or fertile, but there was no way from it. I did Depo shot for 3 years constantly until my Doctors in Australia told me to try IVF because I had Endometriosis stage 4 and I resulted to try IVF (In Vitro Fertilization). For months after my IVF no progressed and my situation became worse that my husband had already had plans or getting married to another woman because I was barren. I read a testimony about Prophet Abulele how he had helped so many women with pregnancy problems and also how he usually casts return spells to bring back partner and make one fertile. Of all options tried, I gave Prophet Abulele a try. I am now a mother of a baby boy. For over 13 years of my marriage I received my help from this spell caster. I want to impact on someone's life and make the person get help from a good spell caster. Prophet Abulele's email is:- prophetabulelehealingtemple@gmail.com and his WhatsApp is +2349022406159 once you contact him, he will help you fast.

  3. When I found Dr. OSOFO I was in desperate need of bringing my ex lover back. He left me for another man. It happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. He just dumped me after 3 years with no explanation. I contact Dr. OSOFO through his website and He told me what i need to do before he can help me and i did what he told me to, after i provided what he wanted, he cast a love spell to help us get back together. Shortly after he did his spell, my girlfriend started texting me again and felt horrible for what he just put me through. He said that I was the most important person in his life and he knows that now. We moved in together and he was more open to me than before and then he started spending more time with me than before. Ever since Dr. OSOFO helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. I highly recommends Dr. OSOFO to anyone in need of help.
