Ballet poodle survives snip

By Edward McLeish

73-year-old Elayne Cherry is a Southbank resident, ballet teacher and mother of Gorgeous George, or “GG” for short.

Gorgeous George is a black toy poodle and he’s nearly six months old.

His shaggy hair is a little longer than usual, and Elayne said it’s only because he had recently had the snip.

“It’s been no trouble at all – I don’t think he even noticed,” Elayne said.

“It hasn’t slowed him down at all and he still chews through quite a bit.”

Elayne said GG’s favourite place to walk in Southbank was by the river, but what he went “absolutely berserk for” was the beach.

“He loves the sand, anything related to dirt, anything that makes him grubby,” Elayne said.

According to Elayne, Gorgeous George also loves classical music and sitting on the sidelines at her ballet lessons.

“I used to take him to class, and he would sit there and watch the kids,” she said.

“He loves it.”
