    LOL, I sometimes have wondered whether White started dating Belbin b/c what he really wanted is to get close to her doggie. Just kidding, but his attachment to DJ is very obvious (and endearing) from all the photos he tweets of and/or with man's best friend. White's eyeglasses in this interview remind me of an old photo of DJ wearing them. (Sorry, I don't have a link handy, but trust me, both the idea of White amusing himself that way and the bespectacled DJ herself were pretty darn cute.)

    And Davis' love of dogs also is well-documented.
    I didn't know this about DJ- how cute and funny! Charlie is really such a lovely, unaffected, endearing guy.

    Thanks for sharing, Golden411!

    Ok, I've been waiting for a reason to post this, so here goes--just in case anyone ever doubted Charlie's sense of humor (or his love of DJ for that matter)

    The lovely DJ is female. That is partly why I am amused by my own silly joke that she is the one who stole White's heart before Belbin herself did.

    AH-HA! I love your joke! I wonder if DJ is a havanese- looks a bit like one. We are thinking of getting a havanese because they're hypoallergenic.

    Tanith and Charlie are a sweet couple!

    I don't think either of the channels we normally use showed the finale in its entirity.

    The Спорт 2 video of the ENTIRE gala that I found cut away just after the Pairs teams came on, when Volosozhar/Trankov were on shot, about to do something.

    Whether that was the end of the Спорт 2 coverage, or just the end of the recording made by our friend in Lithuania, I am not sure.

    Eurosport only showed a bit towards the end, from when the cast were gathering in the centre up to the start of their lap of honour.

    So, unless somebody uploads the NHK coverage, I don't think we're going to see the whole of the finale.

    Fingers crossed the NHK coverage appears...

    The video cracks me up every time. In the tweet where Charlie posted it he said Tanith was involved in the production as well Tanith and Charlie are an adorable couple.

    No idea what kind of dog she is, but she is really cute. I remember someone saying that she charmed everyone backstage at the Nationals in Omaha

    I get NHK overseas on my cable. They did not show the finale. Instead they showed interviews.

    In fact, that made some very odd choices about chacking skaters in the Gala:

    They showed all the Japanese competitors
    Reeds
    Takahashi & Kihara
    Mura
    Oda
    Daisuke Takahashi
    Mao
    Akiko
    but then all they showed:
    Javier Fernandez (5th in men's)
    Gracie Gold (4th in women's)
    Davis & White

    They chacked all the pairs, including world champions Volosozhar & Trankov and Radionova and Jeremy Abbott, the Shibutanis, and Cappellini & LaNotte!
    They showed the opening, but no finale.

    I have no idea whether NHK in Japan showed a different selection of stuff, but I rather doubt it.

    Thank you for responding. Aww I knew I should have stayed up until 4! Oh well. Maybe the Russian brodcast will upload it somewhere. Fingers crossed!

    I'm sure you did - I'm just surprised that NHK Overseas chose to show a different line up.

    British Eurosport showed a decent amount of the gala. I'd have to check the video, but I think we saw the top 3 from each discipline, plus Fernandez, Gold, Miyahara, and maybe some others I forgot. Looked like they only cut the earliest performers.

    By the way, Takahashi did his #1 crowd-pleaser: Mambo! What a treat! As if we were in any doubt, this was final confirmation that the "old" Takahashi was back! In the SP, FS and Ex it was the Takahashi that - instead of looking like he was trying to compete - looked like he was on the ice because he belonged out there, just skating for the fun and exhilaration of it.

    Sorry, YesWay. You mis-understood my message.

    I was just referring to the finale of the gala, as that was what candyclouds was specifically asking about.

    Eurosport did show a good amount of the gala, although I was a bit dismayed at the number of Japanese competitors that they missed out. (But, there again, they did the same with the local skaters at the Cup of China)

    Hope this helps
