Pudsey, Robert Pattinson of Dogs, Eyes Stardom (watch!)

Heidelberg Conundrum Barnes Noble

Ashleigh and PudseyPudsey the adorable dog showed off his talent on the UK’s “Britain’s Got Talent, and walked off with the $800,000 first prize for his equally adorable trainer Ashleigh Butler, a 17-year-old teen.

Talented dogs can make millions of dollars from movie appearances, television commercials and merchandise. Pudsey reportedly has offers rolling in non-stop since winning the talent competition yesterday (May 12).

By way of contrast, Moose, the Jack Russell terrier who starred on the sit-come “Fraiser” earned more than $2.5 million for the work.

The show, like its American equivalent, is a come-one, come-all talent competition to find the best acts in the nation whether they are singers, high-wire acts or break dancers. The dog beat opera singers Jonathan and Charlotte in the semi-final.

Adorable Pudsey, who is six years old (42 in dog years) was in a class all his own. Before the final Ashleigh promised, “We’ve got tricks up our sleeve that you’ve never seen a dog on BGT do.”

And she was right. Pudsey performed flawlessly in sync with his trainer’s every step. For the record, the dog is a cross between a border collie, bichon frise and Chinese crested, according to London’s Sun newspaper.
