Candace Cameron Bure looked simply stunning in a little white dress at the preview party for her “Puppy Love” Hallmark Channel Original movie that premieres tonight (9/8). But it was her costar who stole much of the attention — and she didn’t even seem to mind.
No, we don’t mean hunky Victor Webster (pictured), who plays Candace’s baseball player love interest in the movie. It was her other costar (also pictured), Bugsy, who had the crowd oohing and awwing at La Piazza at L.A.’s The Grove. Bugsy complied with all photo requests, standing, sitting or giving big doggie kisses.
“Growing up on ‘Full House,’ I’m used to working with dogs,” Candace reminded. And now, as a mom, she’s used to her own full house of animals. The Bure family pets, past and present, include dogs, of course, plus “a bearded dragon, a Russian turtle, and hamsters,” she let us know.
When everyone walked across the plaza to the Pacific Theater for the screening, Bugsy took his place in the front row to watch. “What do you think he’s thinking, seeing himself on the big screen?” asked a guest. We can only imagine. However, stardom does not seem to have gone to his head. Perhaps because he has not forgotten his humble beginnings as a rescue dog.
Hallmark is partnering with Petsmart Charities for “Puppy Love,” which certainly depicts how much adopting a rescue pet can enhance one’s life. Petsmart Charities, as you may well have seen for yourself, has a large ongoing effort nationwide to help rescue dogs and cats find loving homes.
