image for Dog Helps Scoop Lotto Jackpot
Dougal - the lucky scamp

A delighted dog-lover was thanking his lucky stars the day he bought airedale terrier Dougal as a present for his wife.

Jake Barnyard has plenty of cause to pamper the precious pooch for he insists that Dougal picked the six magic numbers he used to scoop the £5,670,000 top prize in this week's lotto draw.

A delighted Jake, speaking from his opulent home in London's trendy Islington, said:

"I was filling out my form as usual and Dougal came up behind me, grabbed the form and shredded it to ribbons.

I was quite cross with him to begin with but then I watched in astonishment as he picked up a new form and pen in his little paws and marked off six new numbers

Well I just thought why not give them a whirl? So I did. And do you know? I could have sworn that Dougal winked at me as I handed the pound over to the newsagent"

Jake then told The Spoof how he watched the draw that night in total jaw-dropping disbelief as Dougal's winning line 'came up'

"He's a marvel" laughed a delighted Jake "We're gonna get the little fella a diamond encrusted collar for his trouble" added the Nation's newest multi-millionaire.

When our reporter asked Dougal for a comment he just said "Woof woof!" and carried on eating an old bedroom slipper as if nothing had happened.
