If Ron Miller is going to be too afraid of public backlash to unleash the dramatic potential of killing Chief off, I think this sequence is a halfway decent compromise, it makes the best of a bad situation. Theres no denying that it “takes the Mickey” out of the story, and in more ways than one(I don’t think this is entirely inline with Walts ambitions and philosophy as a storyteller), but I always thought this was one of stronger dialogue sequences in the film, and giving the animation of Chief to Ollie Johnston adds yet more strength of character; not a bad strategy to compensate for a shortcoming like this.

This sequence mainly belongs to Ron Husband, who animates most of Chief's scenes and all Copper's close-ups. Ollie Johnston's test animation of Chief playing for sympathy also appears, while Jerry Rees and Darrell Van Citters animate Amos Slade (plus incidental Copper when he appears in the same shots). Chuck Harvey once again gets a miscellaneous shot - a quick rear-angle view of Slade and Copper walking.

I think we're going to see a lot of Glen Keane in the next sequence. :)
