White Dog will dance for treats. She does a mean tango and a pretty darn good minuet. She can also rock and roll when the mood strikes her.

One of the best parts of living with an Army is getting to witness the awesome sharing that takes place in terms of mentoring and learning new skills. Sometimes it is intentional...like when Puff showed Taiko how to come back in through the dog door. Other times, it seems like a matter of seeing another of the WDA doing something that generates praise of a reward.

For days Bella, would watch from under my chair as WD and YoYoMa went through their daily skills practice. At the end of each session, each of them gets a chance to show off. YoYoMa usually does his impression of "dead dog." White Dog frequently dances.

The other day at duck jerky time, Miss Bella grew impatient being at the end of the line to receive treats and out of the blue shared her Ann Margret (sans Elvis) swing time...

Seems if every pup gets into the spirit we may be able to have the White Dog version of Dancing with The Stars!

Just a reminder that the White Dog Army is sponsoring a Comment-A-Thon in honor of White Dog's 9th Birthday on THIS Sunday (the 22nd). If we manage to get 48 comments momma and dad have promised to donate 48 blankets to Animal Cracker's Dog Hospice and to Fat Katz Rescue...along with party treats! Please stop by and help us meet our goal...and leave warm wishes for one of our Blog Family's best...
