EXCLUSIVE: From Rescues to Broadway Stars, A Day With A Christmas Story's "Bumpus Hounds"

Bill Berloni began his career as an animal trainer accidentally — as a youngster working on the original Broadway production of Annie, he was chosen to help train the show's Sandy. Since then, Berloni has become Broadway's foremost animal trainer and was recently awarded a Special Tony Award for his work. His latest assignment was to prepare rescue Bloodhounds Lily and Pete to play the dastardly turkey-thieving Bumpus Hounds in A Christmas Story, The Musical. In this exclusive peek behind the scenes, Berloni and star John Bolton (who plays the cantankerous Old Man) set about teaching the pooches to play their part in a Broadway show and tour the streets of Times Square to greet their fans.
