Dancing Merengue Dog



Stephen Bly said...

Too it! So, will this canine be one of the new contestants on "Dancing With The Stars?"

On the trail,

Haha, Steven, that's funny. They should call him, shouldn't they (or her). "She" was wearing a dress now that I think about it. But, seriously, think about the HOURS the owner-guy had to dance with that dog to teach it all those steps. Can you imagine being his neighbor and watching him through the window?

That is the most adorable dancer I've ever seen. She should dance on "So You Think You Can Dance" because she sure can!! Stephen had a great suggestion too. I love that you call your dog "Fraidy Dog" because we have one of those too. Jenny hears the garbage truck coming from blocks away and crawls under my husband's pc desk and on top of his feet. She has done that since she was a 10 wk old puppy and Jack, my husband, was walking her on the leash in front of our house when a garbage truck came by and she twisted around Jack and hid behind him until he picked her up. She was whining and shaking. It really isn't funny, but she still remains afraid of the trash pickup on Tuesdays and Fridays and knows exactly when they are due. That's what is funny about it. She is one sweet loving girl and has beautiful long legs (should have named her Betty Grable), 71 lbs, stands about 2 1/2 ' tall, so is no small dog to be sure! We thought she was a Border Collie/St Bernard mix when we got her from the rescue, but she sure didn't look like it as she grew older. We had a DNA ran on her and she is mostly Great Pyranees, with strains of Miniature Pinscher, large standard Poodle, Beagle, and Labador Retriever. She's beautiful and of course, very human, and weird! Just had to share all that with you.

Thanks so much for posting your comment, Barb. I loved reading about your sweet "fraidy dog". He sounds similar to Peyton. I'm going to go in search of a picture of him over on FB. Hopefully, you've posted some.
