“Elton John Loves His Cocker Spaniels.”

His family of Cocker Spaniels consists of Arthur, Marilyn “Arthur’s wife”, Max and Isobella “the daughter of Arthur and Marilyn”.

Who is Elton John?  Born Reginald Kenneth Dwight, now known as Sir Elton John, started to play the piano at the tender age of four. Somewhat of a child prodigy, he could play by ear any melody he heard.  He is a British singer, pianist and composer whose unique blend of pop and rock styles turned him into one of the biggest music icons of the 20th century. He excelled in music from a young age, attending the prestigious Academy of Music on a scholarship at just eleven years old. In 1970, he released his first self-titled American album, making him a huge international star. Some of his most famous hits include “Crocodile Rock,” “Philadelphia Freedom,” and “Candle in the Wind.” He also found success on Broadway, composing the score for Billy Elliot (2008), which went on to win ten Tony Awards. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. He was knighted in 1998.

Did you know…?

Elton John has nodding dogs and when Elton John is on tour, he brings nodding dog figures with him for his dressing rooms.   He always gets a spare room solely to store his thousands of figurines.  Everywhere he goes he has an extra room filled with thousands of his nodding figures.

Elton Goes Everywhere with His Dogs   

Elton loves his dogs so much that when Elton John and his mate got married the Windsor’s Guildhall, informed the couple that pets were forbidden on the premises, they responded by making Arthur “best man,” a critical part of the proceedings that could not be banned from attending!  Now if that is not an example of exhibiting dog then I don’t know what is…!

WooFStoria Tip for Day

When you have a couple of dogs under the same roof things could get a bit crazy.  Sometime’s dogs can get on each other’s nerves or sometimes they are very hyperactive or playful, especially if they are young puppies.

The trick is if you want a well-behaved dog, you need to exercise him. A long walk in the morning and then a shorter walk in the evening will help to calm dogs down.  Exercise is an important training tool to molding a well-behaved dog. It helps keep them from going stir crazy at home.
