Organizers: Dog can play piano, mow lawn
Organizers of a new talent show called
Britain's Most Talented Pet say they have found a dog that can mow the lawn and play the piano.
The 4-year-old dog reportedly is a canine wiz when it comes to pianos, as well, a skill that helped Hope win April 2008's National Pet Month honors.
The Ultimate Pet Show competition organizers said Hope the German shepherd can place his front paws on a lawn mower's handle and push the machine along like a human operator, The Daily Telegraph reported Friday.
The dog, which resides in the British town of Sutton Coldfield, may qualify for the first-ever
Talented Pet competition.
The May 2 show will feature 12 finalists, the Telegraph said.
