The Internet Is Wrong About Air Bud And Comet Being The Same Dog

Yes, Buddy had a cameo as Comet in one episode — the one where Jesse can't play basketball, so Danny's all, "It's not so hard, even Comet can do it."

The real "Comet" was played by Comet, a pup whose original owners surrendered him to Golden Retriever Rescue. He was adopted by Animal Actors of Hollywood in 1988 and first appeared on Full House as Minnie, fictional Comet's mom, and then rejoined the cast a few months later as adult Comet.

Buddy, on the other hand, was found as a stray in the Sierra Nevada mountains in 1989 and was taught to play basketball by his owner, Kevin di Cicco, who continues to teach his golden retrievers to play sports for the Air Bud franchise.
