Music: “Oliver Twist” Melody by Lionel Bart
Handler was all dressed in rags, Oliver Twist style, it starts with the dog walking around the props which iare a small box and a bowl. The dog brings a bowl over to “Oliver” a tablecloth is then placed on the dogs back whilst he is standing on his frontis placed on top of the cloth. Wow what balance and such a neat trick. The dog begs for food whilst performing various moves and it’s such a lovely story-telling routine with many changes in tempo and atmosphere. I found it quite magical and very creative. Astounding to see the dog marching around the area on three legs, first holding up a front leg and then later holding up a back leg.
