Naughty dog Charlie, a bichon frise*, caused near disaster at the World Pie Eating Championship in Wigan. Charlie sneaked into where the pies were being prepared and ate twenty of them and damaged another ten.
Another source of pies was located. In an ironic development, Charlie was then entered into the competition, but he was too full to compete successfully.
