Music: “John Mills”
Very dapper outfit, black tails, with a violin as a prop!
Slow melodious tune to start with and then it gets very upbeat and fast and the routine changes accordingly. Seems as though the dog even moves its head in time to the music, some fantastic jumps on Luc’s back and over his shoulders and even over the violin. As part of the routine the bow is used to stab the dog, so he is wounded and lying down and gets up again with a definite limp. At one point the bow is thrown across the ring and dog retreives. Fantastic to see as the dog walks backwards behind the handler and jumps high in his arms as the finale (he’s a big dog!). A roar from the spectator stand at the end of the act.
