8:39 am
bravo, charlie. >> let's go see your new home. this is where you'll spend your mornings in this beautiful pen. there you go. >> tell us about the digs here. >> it's personalized with charlie's name. there it is. it's all yours. a big thank you to our great friends at petsmart for the bedding, toys, bowls, all of this to make charlie's home so special. you have the best seat in the house in the orange room here. by the way, you are trending of course. here's his official page. already 210,000 followers. that better include all of us. so that's just some of the stuff that we've got going on for him and instagram page and twitter and just follow all of the antics of our beautiful boy, charlie. >> adorable. >> we all conked out yesterday. we needed a nap no question.
8:40 am
all right. make yourself at home. >> very comfortable. >> now he's got a name. what about a uniform? let's bring in his puppy raiser, olivia. talk to us about the vest. >> so when a service dog is working, they typically wear some piece of equipment. it's not required by law to wear it but most service dogs do wear a vest or a harness of some sort. whenever you see one of these out in public, it means the dog is doing a very important job and to always talk to the handler of the dog. sometimes it's an appropriate time to interact with the dog and sometimes it will not because typically the dog is doing a very important job that involves safety so always ask permission before you interact with the dog and this is our little boy vest to start off on his big job. >> very cool. how many hours a day will he be actually working? >> when he's a puppy, everything is fun and more of a game than
8:41 am
work. he'll have this vest on when we are on a training exercise. only five minutes at a time. their attention span is very short and we'll do several sessions throughout the day. >> vest on means working. rest of the time just be a puppy. >> that's right. >> we have one more thing. a lot of people at home are probably thinking about the very special service dog that we all grew to love. wrangler. check this out. a note from wrangler. he wrote that himself. he has great penmanship. we'll fill you in on wrangler and what he's up to tomorrow on "today." >> here, charlie. >> coming up, what is it like to step into the acting ring with none other than robert

8:45 am
robert de niro. what's that like? you have done acting before. >> i have but never quite like this. i didn't have as many scenes with de niro. i had scenes with edgar. it was amazing. >> can we describe why they came to you with this. this is interesting. we think of boxing and brute force of it. they were attracted to you because -- >> of my movement and also there was similarities in the way that we looked other than just being black. it was definitely the ability to choreograph and understand movement the way i did. a very aggressive role. there was tension and intimidation that went into every fight and exchanges. outside of the ring time, acting time was a bit intense. >> i was a huge fan of his in his prime and to watch his footwork and to watch the way he could move in a ring and that's
8:46 am
kind of what you do on stage just in a different kind of venue. >> i pretty much know what i'm going to do before i hit the stage and sugar ray did as well. >> what about the actual physicality. did you have to be buff up a lot? >> i had to lose weight. i changed my eating habits. i worked out three times a day sometimes. had a trainer in atlanta. i worked at a gym here in brooklyn. and philly. i really didn't prepare like it was an acting role. i prepared like i was a boxer. >> you're too young to remember this -- >> i was alive, but i didn't see the actual fight. it's gone down in history. there was great deal of conflict between the two of them and a great deal of intimidation went into the first and second fight both ways. >> so many great fighters of the time. it was in my opinion other than the ali era, it was the heyday
8:47 am
of boxing. >> that weight class was a serious one. an amazing story for latin america and latinos all over to show their support. it's an amazing story for latinos. >> when you went to sugar ray leonard and talked to him, was there one thing you were looking for to get the character? >> i wanted intimate details about things i read in his book, "the big fight." he trained me and worked with me. i wanted to make sure i represented the right way. i feel like this is something for latinos. if there's ever been a notion that maybe there's negativity around latinos in america, some people have negative things to say. won't say names. this is an amazing film that in many ways represents the pride of latinos and i'm really happy that sugar ray leonard was able to be part of it.
8:48 am

9:46 am
victoza® works with your body to lower blood sugar in three ways-- in the stomach, the liver and the pancreas. and while it isn't for weight loss, victoza® may help you lose some weight. non-insulin victoza® comes in a pen and is taken once a day. (announcer) victoza® is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and is not for people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza® or any of its ingredients. stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you get a lump or swelling in your neck or if you develop any allergic symptoms including itching, rash, or difficulty breathing. serious side effects may happen, including pancreatitis. so, stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you have severe pain in your stomach area. tell your doctor your medical history. taking victoza® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are headache,
9:47 am
nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. now's the time for a better moment of proof. ask your doctor about victoza®. right. in. your. stomach! watch this!... >>yikes, that ice cream was messing with you, wasn't it? try lactaid, it's real ice cream, without that annoying lactose. lactaid. it's the milk that doesn't mess with you. spending the day with my niece. that make me smile. i don't use super poligrip for hold, because my dentures fit well. before those little pieces would get in between my dentures and my gum and it was uncomfortable. even well fitting dentures let in food particles. just a few dabs of super poligrip free is clinically proven to seal out more food particles so you're more comfortable and confident while you eat. so it's not about keeping my dentures in, it's about keeping the food particles out. try super poligrip free.
