This week on the hit show “America’s Got Talent,” 22-year-old hand balancer Christian Stoinev turned his solo act into a duo with an adorable new partner — a dog. Scooby the Chihuahua shocked and enthralled the judges and audience alike with his nimble antics, doing almost as much as his human partner - no mere cute prop but a fully-active and fully-trained participant who stole the show! He and Christian performed in perfect harmony, enacting feats so precarious that celebrity judge Mel B (of Spice Girls fame) actually covered her eyes for fear that the small Scooby would fall. No worries, Mel—Scooby is a dog who knows what he’s doing. After all, he’s had plenty of time to learn; Scooby is a full 11-years-old, believe it or not - a considerable age for a canine. In fact, the typical lifespan for a Chihuahua is ten to eighteen, making Scooby’s gymnastic stunts even more impressive! Scooby, man, we’ve got to get you a Migrubbie!
Whether or not Christian and Scooby end up winning the million-dollar prize, they’ve for sure won a million hearts!
