Seven waiting for her scene
As the first day wrapped up around 2 PM, we were informed that the second day of shooting was on Friday. Friday? It was supposed to be on Thursday and we planned to drive home Thursday afternoon or Friday at the latest. Dang it!
Topless girls at 3:00.
Well, on Thursday night we get a call from Phil, the animal talent agent. He explains that the shoot is at 1 PM. Double dang it!! We were hoping to be done in the morning and to drive home after that. Oh well.
The shoot happened much later than 1 PM, of course. It was at an apartment complex and Seven's job was fairly easy since she was simply being lead on leash this time. I handled her between shots for the most part and had to position myself carefully numerous times so she would travel in the right direction or turn her head a certain way.
"That's a wrap!" What? You mean we waited around for 2 hours and she was never used for another scene? Double dog dang it! We could have been driving home! So we left Miami at 8 PM and arrived home at 7 AM. I started out a little tired, but once my second wind kicked in I was fine. Stefanie and I both agreed that it was not as bad as we expected to drive all night.
Lastly, I have to thank Stefanie for being Seven's personal assistant. I could not have done it without you! She shared in the driving and helped me stay awake. She fetched dog beds, water, treats, and anything else I asked for. She carried much of our things and took lots of photos. Stefanie checked on Riley, took her for walks, and fed her when the shoot ran late. Thank you, thank you!
It appears we may have to go back three more times for shooting. Just are not certain of when.
