LOL Oh, this should be a good one! Actually, Ridge and I dance frequently, but since I take the pics around here, it'll be difficult to post one of the two of us on the dance floor.

These are of the dancin' Pack from last year, though. Will these do to start off?

OMG Hazel, line dancing gone wrong made me laugh. Your pack are such a hoot! Shadow used to be called Shadow Dancer because of her dancing pace, but it wasn't really something you could take a picture of, maybe a video, but I never did .

I've been trying to get a video of Cass's cute little prance since we got her and have had no luck. Seems like when you get the camera out, they freeze up. I think I've made them all paranoid by taking so many pics....

Have you ever thought about a notebook for Shadow memories? I have a journal that I jot down memories of our dogs in, their idiosyncrasies, their sweetnesses, the things that drove me crazy and the things that could melt my heart--sounds like Shadow's dancing would be a good memory to record!!

Cute pic of Daisy!

Hazel, I don't have a journal as such, but I do have the lovely book that Winston sent me. A few years ago I was walking the girls and a stranger stopped to chat with us on the street. He commented to me that Shadow had a beautiful gate, that she looked like a dancer. It was so funny to hear someone say that about her, because we always saw it.

Soundy, Daisy is so graceful! I'll bet she pirouettes beautifully!!

Shadow was something special, DD--of course people noticed it!

I see the eye-dance well - so cute Breeze!
Soundy - very cute dance - love the little tongue that sticks out. Must be all that concentration.

Gonna try to get mine done this coming weekend. (We are taking Arthur Purry dance classes all week long )

LOL at Marko.

Breeze, Bree certainly does have dancing eyes! She looks like she's dancing around saying "Let's get going!!" "What ya waitin for Ma, put down the camera and let's go!" She's so pretty!

Tigger dances much like Daisy but twirls so fast I'm not sure I'll be able to get it on film. I'll try though.

Great pic Stefano. Must go look at your website now to figure out who's who. Love the long leg dance! Almost forgot to say the pups look beautiful.

Oh, that zoomie shot is great, DOG!!!!

So who got the chewie? Zoey or Mollie? hehehe I'll bet Zoey got it first and then Mollie weaseled it away.... Sneaky setters!!! heheh

Stomp, it looks like that line dance--what is it called? The Conga? Where everyone lines up with their hands on the waist of the person ahead and everyone kicks out at the same time? Funny shot!!

LOL!!! You're correct Hazel. Mollie's a little weasel and just slithered when no one was looking and snatched it up! She truly is a sneaky Setter!

Stomp, it looks like that line dance--what is it called? The Conga? Where everyone lines up with their hands on the waist of the person ahead and everyone kicks out at the same time? Funny shot!!
In modern day, it could be the Cha-Cha Slide or a Cupid Shuffle Hazel. LOL! I'm just learning about these party dances.
