Paul O’Grady once used a five-pound bill to collect dog poop – and then spent the money at a store.
The host of For The Love Of Dogs is an avid animal lover and is very keen on cleaning up when his dogs are doing their business outside. However, he was caught off guard once without a poop bag and had to use money to clean up after his late pup, Buster.
Paul left the feces in the five-pound bill in the trash, before heading home to pick up a bag of poop and coming back to pick up his five-pound. He then returned home to clean it, before heading to his nearby store to make a purchase.
Speaking on BBC Radio 2, he confessed: “When Buster was a puppy I would take him for a walk on the green. He was doing his business and I’m very conscientious. I always clean up afterwards. And of course no poo bag. – all I had was a five.
“So I went there, I picked it up with the five and put it in the trash. I took Buster home, found a bag of poo, went straight in, j opened the trash can, I shook the five in the poo bag. “
“I went home, wiped off the five, then I went to the store and bought a milk and a paper with it,” he added.
Buster was a Shih Tzu-Bichon Frize-cross and was just one of many dogs Paul owned, before Buster’s sad death in 2009.
Paul also shared how he once found a dog biscuit and poop bag in his pocket while receiving his National Television Award.
“I was up there to receive the award and I had my hand in my pocket and there was a dog biscuit and a bag of poo in my pocket,” he said.
Paul presents his show For The Love Of Dogs, which follows him behind the scenes at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, but he admits his long-running success was only supposed to be “six days of filming” at first. .
“I was only supposed to shoot six days here [Battersea] in 2012, but I’ve never really left since, “he said.
“People always tell me they laugh at me rolling me on the floor with these dogs, but that’s the only way to be with them.
“I’m not going to be standing at the door all day talking to the camera. I really love these dogs. I really love them.”
