A dog’s love? It’s magic. Dogs are magic. But they’re not exactly what you’d expect to see on Britain’s Got Talent.
Dave Wardell is a police officer and together with his dog, Finn, they appeared on stage for a magic act with a little backstory that made Simon Cowell cry. Yup, THAT man.
They haven’t even started yet but Simon is all smiles.
Finn is a handsome German Shepherd who doesn’t mind all those people staring at him. Because he’s awesome, that’s why.
“Now we all think our dogs are magical, but Finn truly is. And for more than one reason.”
Not arguing that point.
Wardell asks judge David Walliams to write the name of a random object down, hold the pad to his chest, and to come down and join them at the front of the stage.
Walliams makes his way down with a silent audience watching. Wardell says he will close his eyes and when he does, Walliams is to show Finn the word. Curious.
David shows Finn the word on his notepad and after a few seconds, Wardell asks him to return to his seat.
Like any magician, Wardell makes it clear that there’s no possible way he could have known or seen the word Walliams picked. David confirms this, so Wardell turns to Finn and asks his dog to whisper the word in his ear.
“David. The word is… Table.”
That’s right! David Walliams holds his pad up high for the audience and his fellow judges to see. Even Simon is impressed!
To emphasize why Finn is “amazing”, Dave shares a video telling a short story of his friendship with his handsome buddy.
Dave and Finn have been partners for seven years. In 2016, Dave was involved in an altercation. With his life on the line, Finn bravely dove in front of Dave and saved his life.
Finn risked his own life for his human.
This awesome dog was left fighting for his life. Pictures of Finn flashed on screen as he lay on a table with doctors working to save his life. Shots of the massive wound stitched up got everybody, Simon included, tearing up.
Dave asks Simon to join them on stage for his final act. Simon kneels before the brave boy who gives him a few barks, getting a few chin scratches from Mr. Cowell who is obviously smitten by the dog.
Wardell shares a few words that best describes Finn written on a small pad. He asks Simon to pick a word from one of the pages and tell everyone which one he chose. The word? Heroic.
So Dave once again says there’s no way he could have known that Simon would choose that word. But earlier in the evening, a word was engraved on Finn’s tag. Dave asks Simon to check Finn’s collar then read the word aloud.
That’s what Finn is. And all the other beautiful words used to describe him. Simon, his fellow judges, and the audience rise to their feet giving Dave and Finn a standing ovation. One of admiration and respect.
