Judges for La Boheme canine quota

Judges for the BBC live audition for La Boheme

News of the spreading wings ( or should that be pawas) of Palm Dog. Out of nowhere came the call to arms for the trusty organiser of Palm Dog to take up the judging cudgels for a special one off BBC One Show live snappy audition for a key canine stage role in La Boheme. Oh the joy and the pressure as the Palm Dog team arrived at Broadcasting House to meet the pair of contenders for this chance to tread the boards.
Prior to the all important ‘put them through their paces’ presenter Chris Evans launched some probing questions about the Palm Dog. Just what makes a top dog performance? – implication being dogs don’t have the acting chops! Quick as a flash Toby replied that this was like asking what made Jack Nicholson’s performances Oscar winners. To close down debate the indefinable but all important quality was placed to the fore – Dogrisma!
It is that special mutt factor which you either have or you don’t. And when you see it you sure as hell know it!
And thus was explained the win of Baby Boy in Behind the Candelabra at Cannes in 2013.
So there!!!
