During the shoot, Duke's ears perked up every

actually yelled), "Roll that Beautiful Bean Footage!"
After hearing this, a script change made this incredible talking dude

Jolie - Golden Retriever causes trouble for her on movie set
By Daryl D, LA Gossip Examiner,
April 17, 2009
A Golden Retriever has been a major cause of Angelina Jolie's
problems on the set of her new film, Salt, for the past couple days.
Angelina and the dog are required to do four scenes together but the
dog, who goes by the name of Bingo, is not cooperating with Ms.
Jolie. But some people say it's the other way around.
"Bingo is a very loving dog and everybody on the set is falling in
love with him," the source tells me. "But Angelina Jolie hasn't been
very nice to him. Bingo would go up to Angelina so she could pet him
and she would say, "Please get this thing away from me!" In one
scene today, Bingo was supposed to come running to Angelina when she
fell off a ladder. Instead, Bingo ran right past Angelina and into
the arms of an audio technician. It was obvious Bingo wanted nothing
to do with Angelina, who has some dogs of her own for the sake of
her kids, but generally doesn't like them.
"Bingo is very well trained and has been in several movies. But
golden retrievers can sense if someone is fake and cold, like
Angelina Jolie," a production assistant told me." Rumor has it that
Bingo will be getting his pink slip this weekend.

Life is Good!:
Lessons in Joyful Living
This book was written by Trixie and Dean Koontz. People often say they wish they could
have a dogs life, with nothing to do but play, eat and sleep. In this charming gift
book, popular novelist Koontz channels his Golden, Trixie, a former
Canine Companions for Independence service dog, to
get her tips on the good life. In breathless, stylized dog grammar ("Chase ball!
Chase butterfly! Chase cat!"), Koontz advocates long naps, daydreaming and
appreciating nature. Some of the advice is clichéd ("take time to smell the
flowers"), but Trixie also wants people to "eat joyfully" and to think of
themselves as movie stars (though "dont get drunk, punch reporter").
The book is laid out beautifully, with adorable pictures
of Trixie playing, napping and nuzzling Koontz. In the margins of some pages, she ponders
various "eternal mysteries" such as "did Shakespeare really write his plays
himself or did his dog help?" She tells amusing stories and confides her fantasies,
one being that a big rig carrying hot dogs will overturn: "Im only dog for
miles around, and same day Mom buys 20-gallon drum of mustard."
Is Good!: Trixie Treats & Holiday Wisdom
This book was written by Golden
Dean R. Koontz
as Editor. Sit! Stay! Eat! Celebrate! Trixie has plenty of advice
for sniffing out the true spirit of Christmas, keeping the holidays
stress free, and finding that perfect gift - you can never go wrong
with hot dogs! CHRISTMAS IS GOOD! is an irresistible stocking
stuffer full of furry tidbits to maximize yuletide fun -- including
caroling with cats (if necessary), baking tasty sausage,
peanut-butter Christmas biscuits, and making yourself fluffier for
all the holiday parties. It's the ultimate guide to Christmas cheer
for pet lovers everywhere!
Trixie wrote this book to give a special
Christmas gift to her friends who are service dogs for people with
disabilities. She is donating her royalties to Canine Companions for
Independence, the national organization that breeds and trains
service dogs for adults and children with disabilities.
Bliss to You: Trixie’s Guide to a Happy Life
Bestselling author Dean Koontz says that his dog, Trixie, changed his life and
made him a better, happier person. A 68-pound dog who lived close to the ground,
Trixie certainly did cast a long shadow. She first became known outside of her
own house (dog-house, that is) as a guest blogger on Dean’s website, signing off
every entry Life is Good, Bliss to You. Now, in this
warm and funny book–as told to Dean Koontz–Trixie once again shares her
inspiring outlook on life and reveals the eight steps that anyone can take to
achieve not merely happiness, but bliss.
Packed with dog wisdom, both poignant and funny, this charming and heartfelt
book gives the reader much food for thought–which might not be as tasty as a
bowl of kibble but is nonetheless nourishing. This MUST-HAVE book (I’m sure since I have all the other books by Trixie)
was released on September 16, 2008.
