Pool-playing Chihuahua shows his skill on 'Tonight Show' (video)
Amadeus, the black Chihuahua who has become famous for playing pool, showed off his skills this week on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."
Not only that, he got his owners, Connie and Michael Baldwin, a little money.
The show gave the Baldwins $500 for every ball Amadeus could sink in 30 seconds. The little dog managed to roll six balls into the pockets in that time for $3,000. The Baldwins and Amadeus live in north Snohomish County.
Of course, Amadeus started slow -- he licked himself before he even touched one ball.
You can watch Amdeus' performance at Hulu.
Amadeus was petted after the show by actress Katherine Heigl. He was also soothed into sleep by Leno when he rubbed Amadeus' chest during rehearsal, owner Connie Baldwin said.
"Everybody was nice and friendly," she said Thursday.
