Cheesy crooner, Barry Manilow, has been spotted performing on all fours at a police dog training center in Southern California, prompting rumors that the "Copacabana" singer is on the path to become a sniffer dog.
Manilow, famed for his massive nose, has claimed that he was just searching for his car keys which he had dropped but insiders have indicated that the singing star is a fully-fledged ass-sniffer.
"Mr Manilow has remarkable scent glands", said the insider, "he can detect drugs, explosives, cheap bourbon. The man's a natural - for a dog".
Manilow has amassed a vast fortune from performing and royalties but last year he admitted in an interview that he craved something more in his life.
"Sure, I'm rich, famous and successful", said Manilow in Leprosy Monthly magazine, "but I still feel something is missing. I'm not yet complete. [I would] like to be a sniffer dog".
This prompted rumors and speculation that Manilow desired to become a sniffer dog.
