Nicholas Sparks: What I've Learned from My Dog
Nicholas Sparks and friends ...
In The Lucky One, Rex was the model for the German Shepherd named Zeus who is responsible for at least two key turning points in the story.
The hero played by Zac Efron is hired because the dog kennel owner, played by Blythe Danner, is so impressed by Zeus’ good behavior.
Then toward the end, the bad-guy deputy played by Keith Clayton publicly humiliates himself by pulling his service revolver on Zeus.
