I mean, think about it. You've seen Lassie rescue countless kids who were drowning, caught in quicksand, stuck in wells, trapped under bulldozers, fleeing from grizzly bears, whatever...but not ONCE have you seen Lassie do her business on the neighbors' lawn. Not once! It's incredible. Was she really a dog or some kind of android?

Speculate. Talk about it. The "submit" button is waiting impatiently for your valuable thoughts to be posted!

Yes and no. Lassie never took a dump during filming. In fact, a simple procedure was used to insure that she wouldn't do so. Before filming began, one of Lassie's trainers would insert a cork in her anus, where it remained until filming was completed. Afterwards, Jon Provost, the kid who played Timmy, was forced to go into Lassie's pen and remove the cork. That may have been a factor in Provost's decision to forego an adult acting career and become a real estate salesman.

What Bee-Dubya said is absolutely true. One day after shooting was finished, Timmy went to take the cork out and found Lassie had a bit of an intestinal problem. He'd barely loosened the cork when the pent-up gas pressure shot the thing out, where it severely damaged an expensive camera and the Key Grip, riccocheted off a truck and narrowly missed a passing 707.

You simply fail to grasp my peculiar sense of humor, zzz... ;-) This thread is a satirical response to another thread in the same vein.

Bee-Dub, that was a GREAT contribution! Thanks for a good laugh.

If indeed Lassie was played by a male dog...or several male dogs...then we have additional reason to wonder why "she" was never seen lifting her leg and engaging in other such rites of male dog passage! There has clearly been a massive coverup foisted upon an unsuspecting public, and I hope we get to the bottom of it in this discussion.

Lassie was portrayed by male dogs for totally mercenary reasons. Females of the "Lassie" bloodlines were more valuable as broodstock than as actors. Their puppies were worth big bucks. And they didn't have time for motherhood and a career anyway.

Do DOGS shit in the woods?

Lassie never went to the toilet at all, because the first time she tried it, she slipped off the seat and split her difference!

Do cowboys ever get change? They swagger into the bar, throw a coin down, and NEVER have I seen change made.
The only time I saw a COWBOY go to the bog, someone shot him whilst he had his gunbelt down.

Perhaps that is why Lassie favoured the cork method.

From what I understand, what was said above is true and all of the several dogs who played Lassie were male. I don't know if I believe that cork bit - Bee-dubya-ell must be taking lessons from Spaw.
Now, if I were a director, and Lassie lifted "her" leg....

Cut!!!

Merry Christmas, dog lovers everywhere.

Well. I am properly humbled- for just a moment there I had it backward. (That NEVER happens to me. *G*) The thought had popped into my head that Lassie was Laddie and therefore supposedly male but played by female dogs and wrote to that effect, making the whole thing... aw, carp.

Actually, as with all stars, Lassie had her own motorhome on set and would use the loo in it as required. She did however have trouble pulling the chain so someone invented the lever flush especially for her. We have reaped the benefit of this of course.

The cork bit doesn't "eliminate" the no-cocking-the-leg problem, even though it disposes of another question.

Actually, the answer to the founding question of this thread is that there was a conspiracy between the director and the film editor. What the director didn't "cut", the film editor "sliced".

Yes, they hide shivering behind their pathetic anonymity...plotting their next devastating comment. Heh! Like a mangy rat, skulking in the shadows.

This thread was launched NOT for purposes of making poop jokes at all, anonymous one. It was launched to poke fun at a previous thread which is entitled "Did Santa ever go to the toilet?".

I'm not interested in poop jokes, fart jokes, or any scatological jokes. Not even slightly. I don't find then funny. It's one of the things I've never found very funny about Spaw's sense of humor, as a matter of fact. I haven't been interested in poop jokes since about age 9 maybe. I guess I did not face any really traumatic toilet training issues...

But I AM interested in making fun of certain rather silly threads that catch my eye here and there on this forum from time to time. The aforementioned thread about Santa was one such.

Accordingly, you have missed my point entirely, and your huffing and puffing here about what you deem as a maturity issue is vain and pointless, at least as regards my launching of this thread. If you want to object to some of the other posters making poop jokes on this thread, well, that's another matter, isn't it?

Well if Lassie was played by male dogs that's not that unusual in acting, especially as we are nearing Panto season (oh no we're not..). But Skippy the Bush Kangaroo was played by a wallaby. Now that's acting for you. Acting a whole different species!

Jon Provost was my sister's real estate agent in Santa Rosa! He's a very nice fellow and has some humorous stories concerning the Lassies. I think there were about eight of them and one or two were actually female. Tommy Retig who played Jeff on the original TV series was apparrently confused by the whole gender thing. I understand that was the reason he gave up his acting career. I could be very wrong on that last point of cause and effect but not on the gender issue.

Did she ever go to the toilet? Don F. stole my thunder on that one. Thanks a lot Don. Well, (a-hem), she was always pulling Timmy or Porky or Jeff or somebody out of a well or a toilet or some such. Eventually the whole show went in the toilet so maybe that answers your question.

I didn't watch the "Rosanne" show all that often, but one I did see involved Rosanne talking to Darlene's boyfriend (Darlene was Rosanne's teenaged daughter on the show). Rosanne was blundering ahead and about to blow a Big Secret. Darlene, standing behind the boyfriend, kept giving Rosanne The Look, and jerking her head, as if to say "Shut the hell up!" But Rosanne picked up on the head-jerking and said, "What's the matter, girl? Is something wrong? What are you trying to tell me? You say Timmy fell down the well?" and on and on in that vein. One of the funniest bits I've ever seen on any comedy show. In fact, Rosanne and Sara Gilbert, who played Darlene, cracked each other up so much while they were taping the scene, they showed the out-takes at the end of the show. Absolutely hilarious!
