What a wonderful choice for Annie! And good for Berloni for choosing a dog from a shelter who would have been euthanized! He sees how wonderful these dogs are and the tragedy that so many of them are put down. Kudos to Pedigree as well for their wonderful effort in teaming up with ďAnnieĒ to help raise $1 million to help dogs find loving homes in shelters all across America. Iím going to buy a ticket to see Annie, myself... what a cute dog!! Thanks for this heartwarming story Barb!

Great news but what happens to the dog when the show is over? Will it be thrown away again? We have to stop this mentality of letting our cats and dogs produce and then throwing the kittens and puppies away. What sick, sick people we have in this world.

I am conecrned about what will happen to this poor dog when his use by date has been reached and the show is over.My guess is that they most likely will discard him again as frequently occurs re post movie and television productions
