David Letterman holds auditions for upcoming 'Stupid Pet Tricks'
UPI News Service, 10/17/2010
The talent coordinator for David Letterman says all the pets auditioning for an upcoming "Stupid Pet Tricks" segment in New York are "winners."
The tryouts to appear on Letterman's late-night TV talk show were held in Central Park Saturday, and the talent was very good, Letterman coordinator Ryan Williams said in a New York Daily News report.
"We saw a lot of really fun tricks," Williams said. "They haven't made my jaw drop, but they were funny. Everyone's a winner on 'Stupid Pet Tricks.'"
The pets displayed a wide range of tricks. Baxter the Yorkie, owned by Lynn Consovoy of Paramus, N.J., can sneeze on command.
A Wheaton Terrier brought by Upper West Side couple Al and Tanya Percival, can spin, but didn't.
Another canine competitor was Tuffy, a 5-year-old Chihuahua-poodle mix, who did little more than stand on his hind legs. But that was enough to please his owner, Lourdes Lebron of Yonkers.
"He's got my personality," she said. "We do everything. My whole life consists of going to parties so he can come with me."
Williams complimented all the competitors, but wouldn't name the top dogs. The show will appear in February, the report said.
