Could your dog be Toto?

Just had an interesting email including the following:

"We are writing from a Saturday night programme for BBC1 called ‘Over the
Rainbow’, where Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber will be casting Dorothy for his
West End production of ‘The Wizard of Oz’.
"BUT he is also hunting for a Toto!
"We are holding open auditions for all potential Totos at the Kennel Club
Building in Stoneleigh Park on the 6th and 7th of April. ANY dogs who are
happy, healthy and well behaved can attend. We are not just looking for a
Cairn Terrier as appears in the film, the competition is open to big dogs
and small dogs of any breed or mixed breed!

 "Team Toto."
You can find out more at the bbc website. Looks like fun - we might even take Buddy and Star along!
Take care,
Julie xx
