I wanted to label this post Pi*s Off Pudsey – Thailand’s Got Talent Too but I thought the title might be a touch too strong for some people. Pudsey the dog is the latest winner of British TV’s Britain’s Got Talent contest. Pudsey is a border collie, bichon frise and Chinese crested cross, and she and her owner, Ashleigh Butler, 17, danced their way to glory and scooped a winners cheque of £500,000 in the final of ITV’s talent contest. As you can see in the top photograph, the pair have amazing talent and what a fine
pair set of legs Ashleigh Pudsey has too.
Thai ladyboy singer Bell Nunita wowed judges and TV viewers with her stunning performances in last year’s Thailand’s Got Talent TV show and deep in the heart of Udon Thani Province, a young pretender to Pudsey’s crown as the world’s top dancing dog is shaping up and once again proving Thailand has got talent too.
Macki is a young Shih Tzu and the youngest of Wonderful Wi’s four dogs. He’s currently taking dancing lessons from Wilai and is certainly coming up to scratch, albeit more so with dog ticks than dance flicks, but give it a few more months and he could rival Pudsey for the lead role in the Broadway musical Slumdog Millionaire. However, Macki has other talents to bark about.
Hollywood is beckoning for Pudsey and owner Ashleigh with movies and TV chat shows in the pipeline and a possible appearance as a judge on Simon Cowell’s X Factor talent show. And that’s where things could get messy because Mr Cowell won’t take too kindly to stepping on something Pudsey’s left behind. Yes we’re talking poo.
Great Western Inventions in Thailand
Cleaning up after a dog can be a messy business but young Macki has been involved in the development of a prototype house cleaning mop called a ‘Kop Mop’.
Now, before Animal rights groups and dog lovers the world over email me with their obvious question I’d like to answer it here and save them their time.
Why a nine iron?
Nine irons are angled at about 45 degrees and are perfect for tilting the Kop Mop to clean skirting boards and awkward spots. The club’s angle also makes the cleaning chore ergonomically sound. That’s saved me replying to countless emails.
Another advantage of the Kop Mop comes from the dog’s sheer enjoyment with helping their master with the household chores. Your dog’s wagging tail will act as a cooling fan and permit you to scrub that dirty floor even harder.
The one draw back with the Kop Mop is that when you practice your golf, your short game in particular, you do get a lot of soi dogs sniffing around your balls. Golf balls that is.
Finally, if any of you are still questioning the practicability of the Kop Mop then this may convince you it is a great western invention and perfect for use in Thailand. Have you ever taken a conventional floor mop for a walk? Of course not. You’d get some strange looks. The Kop Mop is different. Taking it for a walk is great exercise for you, fun for your dog, and the mop gets a good drying too. It also comes with other detachable mops as well. The Kop Mop is the perfect present for your loved one.
Piss off Pudsey, Thailand’s got talent too.
