Dog plays Darts!
A border collie has taken up darts, according to an article in today's Sun newspaper (offline version only, it seems). Blue, a regular at the Boreatton Arms in Shropshire, has not yet mastered the technique of throwing them. But he has been allowed to join a pub team after diligently jumping on a chair, removing the darts from the board with his teeth and dropping them at the feet of the next player. "We save energy by not having to fetch our darts from the board," explains his owner, builder Geoff Davies. The collie has also shown a flair for pool: "He once potted a red from 12in away by hitting the cue ball with his nose."
