MAKE ME A STAR...........BONE IDOL!!!

Having voted for various pets/realtives etc. can I ask a favour in return - my sister, Shoibhan's West Highland Terrier, Callam, has entered the Bone Idol contest to appear on stage in Herge's Adventures of Tintin (not sure how well known Tintin in the US) at the Lowry Centre Manchester. After Whiskers' run away success at Christmas I was hoping that the good denziens of Sploofus Island could rally round and make sure that Callam gets his big stage break. Log on at the link below and click on Bone Idol, then click on View Entries and scroll down to the Lowry, Manchester to vote for Callam.

www.tintintheshow.co.uk

Vote now and make a small white canine very happy.

Thanks,

Markieboy.

No problem Mark. In Canada we are familiar with Tintin and Snowy. I've read all the books in English and I just adore them. Hope your dog is the winner. Good Luck mate.

The one looking toward the camera, on the green box with the person's hand on the left corner? Hope so, I voted for him about 50 times. Hate to have to countervote all that. When does the vote close?

Sorry for not being too clear - his position seems to have chnged. Callam is the wee dog looking to the right sitting on the rocky hillside, not the one with the snowy background.... Sorry Smoke looks like you may have been promoting Callam's thespian rival...!

Yikes! Callam's rival, Diva, has a bevy of ballot-box stuffers, too!

I found a way to cast about a hundred votes in about three minutes. Maybe you all have figured it out, but I don't want to post it in case Diva's backers read the Sploofus BBS, too. PM me and I will send it to you. Hmmm ... may have said too much already ...

Hey, folks - renewed effort is needed! There's a been a new entry added in the last day or so and it's already in second place with over 10,000 votes!

The comments seem to indicate that someone thinks it's the owner that's put most of those votes in, but as we know it doesn't matter *who* does it, just that it's done - so we need to put a load more votes in to keep our boy on top!

Mouses to the grindstone!!

I just voted 303 times to put him over 14,000.

According to the website, the prize is:

"The opportunity for your dog to appear on stage at all the performances during the week the company is at the venue for which you have entered*
A press photo-call with members of the cast of Tintin
A pair of tickets to the show
A signed programme
A winner’s certificate signed by the cast"

However, the site also says "If your dog has made it into the final 3 – you will be contacted directly by the producers. The 3 finalists will be invited to attend the press launch (See above for dates) at 2.00pm where the [director/associate director] will decide on who wins."

It also says:
"*Producers Disclaimer:
Health and Safety in the production of Herge’s Adventures of Tintin is the Producers’ priority and they are therefore under no obligation, if they believe it to be against the interests of the show or audience, to guarantee the dog will perform.The owner must accept full responsibility for the comfort and safety of their dog whilst in the theatre and during the performances"

So, unfortunately, it's not just up to us. Our votes just give him the CHANCE to get the part. But I hope he does.

Zeedee is correct - however the chance to get in front of the judges is the important thing - however we Sploofusers never like to come second, let alone third!

Not that the other dogs supporters are hypocritical in accusations of multiple voting!! as far as I can see there is no stipulation against it

Many thanks again from Siobhan and Callam.

Oh! I have been trying to out-click Poppy's supporters - hard to do at times!. Diva (the #3 now) seems to have faded, but guaranteed a tryout, for sure.

I would truly love to see Callam get the most votes!

The rules say that voting ends on the 17th of August. That comes earlier in the UK than Arizona, US. No indication that it is midnight, 17th, or morning.

So, whoever, let's give the cute Westie a boost! While our friends in the UK are asleep ...

No, Bren wasn't joking - they have eliminated the greater majority of the votes for each dog, and presumably by removing the multiple votes.

However, our champ is still the winner, so it's okay!
