I meant to ask if Rex1 and Rex2 are different characters, or are they rather the same character played by different animals? If the latter, naming them as Rex1 and Rex2 isn't the way I would go. What I have seen is to name them both Rex and put "alternating" in the Attributes field. That way, it is clear that they both played the same role during the same time period, switching between the two of them.

If one played Rex for a while only to be replaced by the second one, then putting the character name as Rex and putting the episodes/seasons/dates for each in Attributes is the way to go... in my opinion.

Good thinking. Rex1 played the role for about 4 years, then Rex2 took his place allowing the first dog a long and honourable retirement from the series. I'll have a look at changing this by reference to the number of seasons or episodes - it would certainly look a lot better &)

My personal opinion on this subject is this: I believe the animals should get added as stars and guest stars. Like someone earlier said they get paid (at least their owners/trainers do). There have been some really big names of the past that were animals but they had big parts in the show and sometimes the show was even named after them. Here are just a few that come to mind to me and some were said earlier in other posts as well. Some have credits in places on the net and some don’t but I believe they all should if they had a name is my take on it. Some animals make appearances here and there in tons of movies and TV shows but a lot never get called by their name so those would not qualify, paid or not. Just the ones with major roles so to speak and those where the TV show or Movie is name after them like “Beethoven”. Oh and I do not mean cartoon animals either. Here is a small list I came up with I’m sure there are tons of them.:

Movies:
Frances the Talking Mule (In 6 comedy films in the 1950’s all with “Donald O’Connor”)
Toto – Terrier in “The Wizard of Oz” in 1939 (Toto’s real name was Terry and has credits in IMDB)

TV:
Lassie – Collie dog in “Lassie” also known as “Timmy and Lassie” (1954 – 1974) and I’m sure a lot of different dogs played that role in the series as well as other shows in later years)
Flipper – Dolphin in “Flipper” in the early 1960’s (he has credits in IMDB but he was played by 5 different female dolphins named Kathy, Patty, Scottie, Squirt and Susie.
Flicka – Horse owned by the “McLaughlin family” in the show “My Friend Flicka” (1956 – 195
Fury – Horse owned by “Jim & Joey Newton” in the show “Fury” (1955 – 1960)
Gentle Ben – Giant Black Bear in “Gentle Ben” (1967 – 1969) (Some sources say his real name was Ben and some say his real name was Bruno so I do not know which is correct?)
Ed the talking Horse in “Mister Ed” (1961 – 1966) (Mister Ed as the Horse has credits as well as the person who voiced him “Allan 'Rocky' Lane” both in IMDB)
Rin Tin Tin - German Shepherd in “The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin” – (most of you have no clue who this is I bet because the series was on from 1954 to 1959)
Arnold Ziffel – Pig in “Green Acres” (He does show credit in IMDB as “Arnold the Piggy” (1965 – 1971)
Fred – Cockatoo – in “Baretta” (1975 – 197
Bullet – Dog used by “Roy Rogers” (I think he was a German Shepherd?)
Trigger – Horse used by “Roy Rogers” (Trigger has credits on IMDB)
Buttermilk – Horse used by “Dale Evans”
Silver – Horse used by “The Lone Ranger”
Scout – Horse used by “Tonto”
Champion – Horse used by “Gene Autry the Singing Cowboy”
Duke also called “Ole Duke” – Basset Hound owned by the Clampetts on “The Beverly Hillbillies”
Homer – Spider owned by Wednesday in “The Addams Family”
Eddie - Fraiser

Commercials only:
I do not believe these animals should get credit but that is just me. I present to you the most recognizable one when they do use a real one:
Geoffrey – Giraffe spokes animal for “Toys "R" Us"

Just as an extra throw in I would like to mention an animal I saw perform on “The Animal Planet” last year in Episode #309 of the show “Pet Star” that has to be the most talented and smartest bird ever in my opinion. His name is “Einstein” and he is either a Parrot or Cockatoo (something like that). He makes different sounds like a ray gun, dropping dead, he signs, he makes tons of different animal sounds like, a cat, a dog, a wolf, a owl, a parakeet, a rooster. He is simply amazing and put on one of the best 3-minute plus shows I have ever seen/heard and animal do before. There is a video of his performance floating around the Internet and I had it saved and now I can’t find the blasted thing. I was able to find a link to a video of her on Animal Planet for everyone to check out but it’s a shortened version of the original for some strange reason at:
http://animal.discovery.com/fansites/petstar/videogallery/season3/ep309_winner.html

If anyone finds the full 3 minute plus version of this video can you please, please, please, email to me at: JAGUARDOG69@YAHOO.COM I will greatly appreciate it and I will owe you one, thanks, Ron.

I finally found the entire 3 min. plus Video of "Einstein" at myspace.com. I will attempt to put the link in here and just in case that does not work I will also put in the entire HTML information for it that they gladly provided to me for free. If neither of these 2 sources work and you would like to see it or have your own copy then please send me an email at JAGUARDOG69@HOTMAIL.COM and I will send it to your via my perosonal email:

http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=608126240&n=2

Einstein is the most intelligent and entertaining bird I have ever seen. Why do we not see more of this great Bird? Einstein should be on Danza, Ellen, Leno, Letterman and all those other great talk shows. One outstanding 3 plus minutes of Fun and Laughs, JAGUARDOG!

I do not know what firefox or UBB are. I do not know how to use html I just copied what they gave me and hoped it would work, sorry that it didn't I can send it to you (I think) via my personal email if you wish?

Yes I know I left that dog out, I also left the dof "Eddie" in "Frasier" and the dog "Murray" in "Mad About You" and many other dogs, cats, bird, horses, elephants, snakes etc. I did happen to mention in my post that it was only a msall list of what I was thinking of when I typed it up.
