Meet Oliver, a Bumpus Hound

Jessica Petrie, Ordway 12/4/14

The Bumpus Hounds play an integral role in the plotline of A Christmas Story, so naturally they make an appearance in the musical version too. One of the hounds, Oliver, stopped by the Twin Cities Live studio with his handler, AJ Sullivan.

Oliver was trained by William Berloni, who is one of the top animal trainers for stage and screen. Oliver came from a New Jersey adoption group in 2007 and has toured with productions of Annie as well as “performed” Shakespeare in Washington D.C.
