Pudsey and Ashleigh Butler are firm friends

Dancing dog Pudsey scooped £500,000 by winning the Britain's Got Talent final last night.

The cross-breed pooch - a mix of Border Collie, Bichon Frise
and Chinese Crested - thrilled the audience and viewers with a brand new Mission Impossible routine, which owner Ashleigh Butler has perfected with many hours of training.

Ashleigh and Pudsey are inseparable and the 17-year-old schoolgirl is never parted from Pudsey - except when she's at school.

'We've been together since he was born; my mum gave him to me as my 11th birthday present and everything we do, we do together,' Ashleigh tells Weekend.

'He can get a bit jealous; when my sister got a new dog Pudsey would get the hump if I went near him so I'm not sure what he'd be like if I had a boyfriend.'
