The small print was explicit:

- artisan well water from the hinterland of the Faroe Islands

- no gluten-free, low-fat, macro-biotic, sodium-free, flavor-enhanced chow; fresh meat only and hand-fed by Daphne

- no cats on the set, unless they are on the menu for the day

- actors keep to a minimum distance; for scenes requiring touching, don't muss the coif

- stand-ins never used for close-up camera work

- advance promotion of the movie only if scheduled between rolfing massage sessions

- doggie jokes that reference "style" or "poop" are banned from the set

- all legs must be available for humping

Harvey Weinstein didn't have a choice. Without Eddie, "Fraser, The Movie" would go straight to DVD.

Did you not read the part about stand-ins? Are you blind? Did you think I'd just let this one slide?

SteveBetz - in for a Penny, in for a pound (I AM good!)

Joe's Musings - a bit of a scrappy scribbler

MC's Whispers - speaks five languages (not including puppy-speak)

Shouts from the Abyss - he knows how to sit up and beg

H.E. Ellis - he likes pithy and, for some reason, Chevy Impalas

Lenore Diane - peanut butter & bananas sandwiches make her day

Fix it or Deal - Amy's into robots so she's building her own mechanical dog
