Sunday Dancing on Happy Tuesday

Me and Mommy go dancing a lot on Sunday afternoons. Our session for this past Sunday got cancelled, so I asked Mommy to help me show you what we did last week. For anyone who doesn’t know what we do, it’s called Canine Freestyle. Mommy always says, “It’s the only dog sport where the dog and the person are equal partners.” Yep, I get to show Mommy my new ideas when we are working up a dance routine to my our music. Oh, oh, and the music has to match my BPM, which is totally different than BM or BP. My Beats Per Minute run from 140ish to almost 150. I am one of those rare canines who really listens to the music and move to match it!

Our teacher asked us to create three phases using one straight line and one curved line in each.

The first one we did was supposed to show athleticism.


Our teacher liked what we did. And it was quick and easy. You may say, “But you are training for an advanced Level 4, so why are you doing this?” It’s cause we have a new student with her Mom and we are helping them understand stuff!

Next we did something that was supposed to show training. The very first part was just the setup. Of course I had to train Mommy to bend her leg right for me to go under. Then I pretended to not know how I was supposed to stand at the end, so we could say , see, this is how to train a pup to face you! It was supposed to be about training, after all.


Our teacher called us a minimalist, but said it was good.

The last exercise is supposed to show grace. I wanted to show how graceful I could be while sitting and laying down. Then I gave in and did what Mommy wanted, but with my own twist on it.

Do you think I showed grace?

I’m glad we had that fun. Now it’s time to get started for real on my Level 4 performance! We only have until around Halloween, you know!

Many thanks to Comedy Plus for hosting Happy Tuesday.

  1. You’re a great doggy dancer, Xena! I have tried to teach some moves like that to Benji…but um…well the only knows ‘come round’ and then he sits to look at me…and expects a a treat, BOL! He refuses to go through my legs as in a figure 8…oh well, he loves the attention! It does work better if Dalton is otherwise occupied, because he tries to get in the way!

    1. Oh, Miss Sandra, we are so glad you said that, because it pointed out a mistake Mommy made when she was helping me with my post. I DON’T move 40 BPB, I move 140 to 150!! We got it fixed on the post thanks to you. XOX Xena
