It's a snooker playing dog

Snooker playing dogIt may sound potty but border collie Blue is right on cue when it comes to playing pool.

He rests his front paws on the table and then, standing on his hind legs next to owner Jeff Davies, looks down the cue to see if he has a shot on. When he has, he sinks the ball into the pocket – using his paws.

In scenes reminiscent of those paintings adorning many a pub wall, showing billiard-playing dogs, Blue began to mimic Mr Davies whenever he took to the table, following the balls as they cannoned off cushions.

Now he has become the canine king of the green baize and partners his master in games.

Apart from playing pool, Blue gets to sleep in his own bedroom at home, works on the building site and even accompanies Mr Davies on his duties as a retained firefighter.
