Writer and voiceover actor Paul Rugg (Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, Puss in Boots…) is obviously a big name in the world of animation, but like most regular guys, Rugg deals with daily stress.
He decided to share his personal wisdom on the topic of stress relief by getting in front of the camera for a PSA about the joys of petting a dog. He says:
“You see, petting your dog is one of the most relaxing things you can possibly do.”
His small lap dog sits placidly tucked under his arm while he talks about the science of stress relief. But things change when Rugg moves on to the demonstration part of the video.
The little pup erupts into a ball of furry and attacks the hand coming down to offer pets. The dog takes repeated bites into Rugg’s hand and fingers, but the experienced actor never breaks character.
