So I want to share with you this story. Listen to this about a rescue dog who went from a shelter to the big screen, Monty, check him out. 2-year-old -- I mean, he is adorable. A terrier mix. I would have definitely adopted him. He was in a shelter for six months in Arizona until a Hollywood trainer came in to the halo animal rescue. She spotted something special in this stray. Now the lucky dog is about to make his movie debut in Disney's live action remake of "Lady and the tramp." I mean, talk about perfect casting. Totally. Wow. I can really see it.

And then finally, guys, you can see that by the way on Disney coming out in November on Disney's new streaming service. So check that out.
