Charlie loves pies. This Bichon Frise loves pies so much that he ate 20 pies in one sitting. But Charlie’s love for pies almost ruined the World Pie Eating Championship.
He raided the refrigerator of 1995 World Pie Eating champion Dave Williams which was full of the pies that were being saved for the championship. Williams was distracted by a pigeon flying up his chimney, so Charlie had his chance to snag some pies.
Fortunately, numerous calls were made to several bakers to whip up a new batch of pies for the championship.
Instead of getting in trouble for his pie eating, Charlie was entered into the World Pie Eating Championship.
The organizer of the event said, “We’ve nothing in the rules to say dogs can’t compete so he will be lining up against the other pie eaters and judging by his performance yesterday he’s got a great chance of winning.”
Except Charlie seemed too full from his pie raid that he wasn’t even able to finish his competition pie. The winner of the competition scarfed down his pie in a record-breaking 34 seconds.
Williams said, “Charlie was a rescue dog and has habit of picking food up from the street. We think this trait has stuck with him because he never knew where his next meal was coming from as a youngster so there was no way we could be angry with him for eating all the pies yesterday.”
