“Absolutely no dogs were harmed in this,” Dennis declared. “This was a piece of video that was shot during the making of this by some unknown person at the time. He also spliced, edited and manipulated that to make it look as if a dog was being abused. The dog had been in that water happily and afterwards, too, and the dog was fine. What is not shown are divers underneath the water for the dog. Every precaution was taken. Platforms underneath the water that the dog was standing on. Not dangling in the water.”

    The video doesn’t look manipulated etc. The dog was scared, somebody even laughs and says: “You just got to throw him in.”

    I agree the dog was scared! And didn’t understand what he was suppose to do! I wouldn’t want to be thrown in to rushing water! How about any of you!?
