Lancashire Heeler Laddie is Wizard Actor! - well almost!

Laddie (Hotpot Truffle) is a very handsome Lancashire Heeler . I met owner Graham, his family, and Laddie at a show this year.

Laddie has the sunniest, friendliest disposition.

Laddie has pioneered lens replacement as a treatment for PLL. Graham is willing to share his experience with anyone in a similar situation. Please contact me if you'd like to be put in touch.

Graham sent me details of Laddie's audition for the part of Toto in The Wizard of OZ:

"This is from a local newspaper article from 2008 when the local theatre were auditioning for dogs for the part of Toto in their wizard of Oz production, before the present tv shows! Unfortunately laddie did not get the part but they say he performed very well and was a joy to audition, and melted a few hearts!  We were not allowed in to the audition rooms for fear of distracting him!"
