A good question (http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/peterwedderburn/100030570/how-to-liven-up-a-bored-bulldog-scrotum-tickling-in-the-showring/)! Don't miss the video!

Makes em stand still apparently. :o I'm sure I've seen an outtake from PDE where they did this and jemima put the "Je t'aime" music to it. Let me see if I can find it....

Scroll forward to 145 seconds. I certainly got the song wrong!

I remember the strangest things.

:rotfl:Thats was hilarious Pauline - no wonder you remembered it. We're lucky that Cavaliers 'dangly bits' are hidden by the feathering. No crouching in the show ring twanging for us. :)

I'm sorry,but I have this urge to wash my hands in hot soapy water:D.
The expression "whatever floats your boat" springs to mind.

I have seen this done at shows before but never really knew why they did it. I presumed that they were just holding the dogs back end to keep it still - how naive I was! :rolleyes:

I'm wondering why the lead isn't enough to keep them still :rolleyes:

:xctly:. Its not as though the average Bulldog is likely to gallop off the scene, poor things can barely waddle along on a good day. Very strange.

Poor things, life may be all tease when they are in the show ring, but when it comes to action they need one of these.......
