Tintin Show

Blistering barnacles, I’m feeling rather cross today.

J1 & J2 went to see the Tintin show at the Theatre and they didn’t take me with them! My pal Blue told me a while ago about a competition called Bone Idol whereby dogs could audition to play the part of Snowy in the stage play while it was touring around the UK. J1 read the rules and when she saw it said that all dog contestants had to be obedient, she ruled me out. I don’t know why, I can do obedient when I feel like it. Anyway, take a look at the Bone Idol competition here and see the regional winners. I think I’m far more handsome and some of them aren’t even WFTs! Everyone knows that Snowy was a WFT!

In the play, J1 said that the real dog was only on stage for a minute or so at the beginning and end of the performance. The rest of the time Snowy was played by a human. How funny! J1 & J2 said they really enjoyed it despite some of the questionable racial stereotypes. Fun for all the family. Except me. Ho hum.

No doubt about it, you would have been the best dog for the part. Then we could have hounded you for your autograph. :)

Ooh, I think my sister E.Rabbit played a dog once. But I don't think that TinTin should be anything but a WFT. We should call the Queen. Do you have her number?

Lorenza said...

Hi, Jackson
So sorry you did not have the chance to go there!
Of course you are way more handsome than them!
Have a good night

Hi Jackson,

How could they not let you try out to be Tintin. You are so him. You would have been better then any of the finalists. Maybe next time.

Your pal,

Molly and Taffy said...

How mean not letting you audition!

Of course, if you had been allowed to enter you would have won the competition paws down. You would have been on stage the whole performance as you are so well behaved and talented. Soooooooooo much better than a silly human trying to be Tintin.

We, on behalf of all wire fox terriers everywhere, are appawled that Snowy could be anything but one of us. Do we need to export more WFTs to the UK?????

You would have been perfect, Jackson, old boy. And like you said, you -- and all of us -- can do obedient when necessary!!! Sorry J1!!!!!

G'day Jackson,
What a shame you did get a chance to audition for the play. We think you would have been a great Snowy.
Maybe if you practice real hard, the next time there's a doggy part going you could try out.
Good luck. We look forward to seeing your name up in lights!!!

THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!! Something must be done! A human! And those other imposter dogs! ARE THEY CRAZY!! Do we need to get a petition going here OR WHAT???!!!!! We are so crazed we have to go calm down a little Love A+A

Stanley said...


You would be a pawfect SNOWY. I don't know what you PL's were thinking. Amazing they enjoyed the performance at all without you there.

We need to work on them. I too can be very angelic and obedient in public even if I'm not that way all the time at home.

Goober love,
