Happy at the (Hollywood) Bowl
Happy, the Jack Russell terrier mix — who stars along side Amanda Righetti and Peter Porte in the new Hallmark Channel movie Love at the Shore — celebrated the film’s upcoming Aug. 5 premiere by visiting some of Los Angeles’ most iconic locations with next-generation Hallmark talent Isabella (Bella) Giannulli (left) Natasha Bure (right), who are the daughters of Fuller House‘s Lori Loughlin and Candace Cameron-Bure, respectively.
Happy at the Iconic Randy's Donuts
“Happy the Dog was abandoned on the streets of Los Angeles as a baby, and I feel so fortunate to have been able to adopt him,” Crown Media Family Networks’ CEO Bill Abbott says of welcoming Happy to his family. “We named him Happy because he has such a sunny personality and smile, and an enormous heart that seems to reflect gratitude in every way.”
Happy at Pink's Hot Dogs
“Working with Happy was an experience like no other,” says Giannulli, 18. “He provided me with constant smiles on set and was more professional than me and Natasha.”
Happy at The Ivy
“My favorite location to shoot at was probably The Ivy,” Bure, 18, says of visiting the legendary restaurant. “The setting was so beautiful and the cake was to die for!! I love going to an LA favorite of mine!”
Happy at the Griffith Observatory
“Happy listens better than most people and was always prepared for his shot. He is a super friendly and social pup, but he knew when he needed to work and was focused when needed,” says Giannulli.
Happy at the TCL Chinese Theatre
“His personality was loving and so kind,” says Bure. “He had a very chill vibe to him!”
Happy at the Hollywood Sign
“Shooting at the Hollywood sign was my favorite location because I felt like it captured the essence of Los Angeles,” says Giannulli. “I had never been to that particular location before even though I have lived my whole life in LA, so it was a cool sight to see.”
Happy at Runyon Canyon
“Happy was just like his name, was super happy! He was always wagging his tail and playing with Bella and me,” says Bure. “He was such a sweet dog and I loved working with him.”
Happy Helping Others
Happy is a certified therapy dog and emotional support pet and visited Ronald McDonald House Los Angeles, where he screened Love at the Shore for sick children and their families, over the July 15 weekend.
Happy Spreading the Love
Abbott adopted Happy with a feline brother: a big, orange mush of an American tabby named Happy the Cat.
Happy and Happy
“When you see the two Happys playing together — a big playful cat and a spirited puppy — you absolutely marvel at the beautiful animals available for adoption from local shelters,” Abbott says of his two pets.
Happy All Around
Happy the Cat and Happy the Dog live together on a ranch north of Los Angeles. The canine and feline duo appear on Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries in a variety of programs including Kitten Bowl and Happy Yule Log.
