Stars of Stage, Screen & Film

Dogs often dominate the silver screen and primetime TV. Remember Dorothy Gale's trusty companion "Toto" in the 1939 film classic "The Wizard of Oz?" "Toto" was a black Cairn Terrier whose name was Terry. Terry was paid a $125 salary each week, which was far more than many of the human actors (the Singer Midgets who played the Munchkins only received $50.00 a week), according to Wikipedia. Terry starred in 13 other films.
