The other day I received word that this week, January 21-January 28th is National Dance With Your Dog Week. While I couldn’t find any history of this actually being a thing in the past, Berkley Breathed’s Bloom Country declared it on Facebook by updating their cover photo, so technically that’s all the proof that I need.
It makes sense.
We absolutely should have a week that we set aside time to shake a leg with our dogs.
Heck, we should dedicate 15 minutes a day to dance with our dog.
Do you know how happy that would make us?
I’ve danced with Leroy a few times, it didn’t go all that smoothly because when I dipped he went up and gave me a fat lip but I’d be willing to give it a try again. Sherman doesn’t dance. Period.
So while I know some of you would love to see Leroy and I doing a freestyle, neither one of us have any sort of rhythm so there’s no chance of that winding up on a video but I did find a few videos of Newfies dancing that made my day a little brighter.
So what about it? Would you ever dance with your dog? What song would you dance to?
I’m thinking for Leroy a perfect song would be Bad Bad Leroy Brown or Who Let the Dogs Out.
Sherman would be more like Apple Bottom Jeans, boots with the fur, if he could get over the fear of the whole world lookin at him. (see what I did there) 🙂
