    I wonder if this is similar to how they handled the plants in The Happening.

        I never knew that dogs try to make us happy. I mean, I always guessed they could determine emotion. My dog zoey always would come cuddle up with me whenever I was crying, she would make me feel loved.

                What's interesting to me is with the original Air Bud series (the Original 5, before the Air Buddies became a thing) I actually know and have been to where they were filmed. It's in Fort Langley, BC The big yellow building they call the museum in the movies, is actually the Fort Langley courthouse building. And the Ice Cream shop Buddy passes by, that's actually a really cool 50s style diner.

                    This lady was just writing directly on the flat screen TVs. They kept telling her not to, but she did anyway, so they had to keep bringing in new TVs.

                      I still worry that the basketball to the mouth must hurt. I have weight, if you’ve been hit in the face with one, you know do dogs bang it against their nose and mouth...and it doesn’t hurt them? I thought maybe the basketballs were foam or something.

                        While I don’t know the particulars about dog trainers on a set, most observant people notice that when a dog is doing something that looks intelligent and aware in a film, they usually can spot that the dog or other animal is looking beyond the actor to a trainer just off screen. I see it all the time. When dogs run to “owners” in films, I can usually always spot that when the dog jumps in the arms of the actor, they’re actually looking over the shoulder to a trainer, waiting for a treat. They often bark over the shoulder of the actor, responding to the trainer. It’s pretty obvious much of the time.

                                    1. To do this job, she must to be empathetic with her dogs and imagining like she's on her dogs perspectives
                                    2. Even some dogs have better jobs and earnings than me
