’My Life as a Dog'
by Moose and Brian Hargrove
What can you say about Moose? a lovable canine? A consummate
professional? A bright star in the Hollywood universe? Yes, you
could say all those things. Or you could just say that he was the
little dog that could. The little dog that never took no for an
answer. The little dog that never said, "I can't," but always, "why
The story of Moose is a classic rags-to-riches story of how an
average pound-bound puppy barked, jumped, and mugged his way up the
ladder of success to become a major superstar. Not since Lassie has
America cared so much about one of its four-legged creatures. At
least, that's what Moose would say.
I would say that working with that dog has been a nightmare. I
had to be at his beck and call, any time, day or night. You don't

out of obscurity and thrust into the limelight may be the dream of
every actor in the world, but in reality it's more of a challenge
than most people realize. It's hard not toget caught up in all the
glitter and hype of Hollywood and completelylose sight of what's
really important--family and friends. As egomaniacal as Moose is,
he has never forgotten where he came from or taken for granted the
fans that got him where he is today.
He's a complex guy--selfish and independent, demanding and
feisty, impatient and intense, arrogant and stubborn, and
strong-willed. But heis also loving, caring, thoughtful when he
wants to be, charismatic, funny, charming, and above all
In short, Moose is a Jack Russell terrier with an attitude. Is
there any other kind?
‘Dune’ by Frank Herbert

Bred for speed, these little dogs are filled with energy and have
lots of personality. Jack Russell's strong will and need for
