Salsa Dancing Dog

We love dogs and dancing. Put the two together? It’s like magic!

This salsa-dancing dog has some impressive moves, no doubt. But the thing that makes us smile the most is how happy the dog is to be dancing. Our dogs wouldn’t be nearly so jovial in a costume like this, but it doesn’t look like there’s anywhere in the world this pooch would rather be!

Edwina Currie And Jo Brand Tell Of Pampered Pets For New Book

British celebrities including former MP Edwina Currie, actor Nigel Havers and comedian Jo Brand have revealed all about their pampered pets for a new book. The stars have written a few lines each about the relationships they enjoy with their animals to help raise cash for charity the People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA).

The ex-Conservative MP Edwina Currie revealed she has a “big and hairy” German Shepherd called Sheba, while bling-loving darts player Bobby George said he owns five Jack Russells named Visa, Twopee, Fiver, Gilda and Cash. Only Fools and Horses star John Challis, who played dodgy car dealer Boycie, has a cat called Fluffy and TV sports presenter John Inverdale has a “soothing and reliable presence” in the form of his goldfish Motivator.

Author Sheila Collins, 65, spent six months compiling the anecdotes from almost 100 celebs to raise money for PDSA.

“It’s taken a lot of hard work and I cannot thank the celebrities involved enough. Without them, there wouldn’t be a book at all,” the former secretary, from St Austell, Cornwall, said.

“I loved reading their stories. Some were hilarious and others very moving – it was, you might say, a roller-coaster of emotions.”

Jo Brand, who has four cats, wrote: “Their individual personalities are an absorbing distraction from household chores, answering emails and contemplating my navel.

“I admire their self-possession and self-assurance – from total indifference to suddenly seeking my undivided attention – a bit like my husband!”

The actor Nigel Havers said: “My favourite pet is called Hottie. She belongs to my PA and is technically a witch as she has five toes on her front paw.”I gave her a designer coat from Los Angeles but forgot to buy my wife or daughter anything – I was too busy thinking of the grateful kisses I would get from Hottie.”TV presenter Matthew Kelly said he is still coming to terms with the death of his Old English sheepdog, Cassie.The Stars in Their Eyes frontman said: “She and I shared something quite extraordinary – an unconditional and total love.

“I still miss her but am always thankful that she decided to share her life with me.”
