The pressures of fame? The high stakes of an upcoming movie debut? Or a mutt on the edge?
Any way you look at it, this week saw an embarrassing display of off-set antics by movie mutt Mars, the star of the upcoming film "A Dog's Breakfast". Reality bit the wayward canine in the form of hard time in the "cone of shame". It seems that the vacationing pooch was over zealous with his scratching of an insect bite after spending a wild weekend in Canada’s B.C. interior. "He feels like an idiot" says producer Jane Loughman of her forlorn pet, "And he looks like one too", says Hewlett, the writer/director/star of the film that is making Mars the toast of the canine social scene. Still, this puppy is going to have to clean up his act if he’s going to weather his whippet fast rise from death-row pound rescue, to Hollywood stardom.
Mars’ reps claim that the dog is “simply exhausted” and is now recovering at home with close friends and family.
