The balancing spaniel who proves you CAN teach an old dog new tricks

Meet Cindy the amazing performing pooch, who can balance almost anything on her tiny paws and nose.

The eight-year-old pedigree Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is the queen of doggy-balancing because she can hold beer mats, CDs and even yoghurt pots perfectly still on her two front paws and nose.

The remarkable little spaniel is the pride and joy of retired electro-plater Ron Bucknall and his wife Irene of Wolverhampton.

Mr Bucknall, who bought Cindy as a puppy, said she is truly one of a kind.

“I’ve had dogs all my life but I’ve never come across one like this before.

“I can do tricks with this dog that you’d have to go through another 1,000 dogs to find.”

Cindy rolls onto her back and plays dead at her owner’s command, and enters a “trance-like state” when performing her balancing feats.

Ron, 75, said: “At first she wags her tail, then I put just a piece of biscuit in her mouth and she freezes.

“Honestly, not a hair on her body moves.”

His son Matt added: “Dogs are notoriously fidgety, so the way she can sit absolutely still to balance things on her head is absolutely incredible.

“She really is amazingly bright and doesn’t forget anything.”

She is not in the best of health with a weak heart and arthritis. Her legs are strengthened with steel implants.
