You can’t teach an old Dog new tricks or so they say!
This week’s entertainment video is a bit off piste, as they say on the slopes!
We thought we would start the New Year as we mean to go along by continuing with our mission to bring you the most varied content possible on JHTV. So today’s 1.30pm entertainment slot is a video short of James’s dog Aero auditioning at the vet’s for this year’s Britain’s got Talent.
Not quite ever having got over Pudsey* winning in May 2012 or Matisse last year; especially after the infamous dog swop incident in the final because of Matisse being afraid of heights**
Aero has determined 2016 is going to be his year. So decided during a recent veterinary check-up, to kick start his campaign by trying out part of his repertoire at heights both literally and figuratively that Matisse could only ever dream and wonder at.
Naturally his grand finale, the piece featuring him playing Mozart’s Jupiter Symphony No. 41 on the high wire had to be dropped due to both the lack of Steinway’s available in the surgery, as well as a stunt double being on hand!
If you think Aero has the necessary talent please like the video and share with a friend.
* Ashleigh and Pudsey are a British dog trick act, comprising trainer Ashleigh Jade Butler and Pudsey (born 28 December 2005). Pudsey is a Border, Bichon Frise and Chinese rested powder-puff cross.
They first achieved prominence as contestants in the sixth series of the television talent show Britain's Got Talent, which they won on 12 May 2012, becoming the first ever dog trick act to win the competition.
** Matisse The dog that won Britain's Got Talent last night was replaced by a look-alike stunt double for the highlight of his daring performance, it has been revealed. In a shock revelation, Matisse was replaced for the show-stopping tight-rope trick by another dog, which was not mentioned on the show.
His owner Jules O'Dwyer, 49, revealed today that Matisse was unable to pull off the daring stunt because he is 'afraid of heights' and was replaced by another dog, called Chase.
