I Love This Dog

I love this dog:

I am using this dog as my inspiration for Dancing with the Stars. I think that if I can do just as well as this dog does in this very intricate dance I will win the competition.

What I love about it is that we don’t think that the dog can do it, and that’s what people are saying about me. They don’t expect anything from me – except to be what I am – a comedian. They don’t know I can dance merengue (actually, I can’t yet – but I will!).

The best thing about this adorable dancing dog is that she really looks like she is enjoying, and anticipating every new movement with a big dog smile and a waiting paw. Her head and muzzle are placed so she can appreciate her partner and watch him dance along with her. There is so much genius and inspiration here and a good lesson for any dancer. Part of the dance is the steps and physical prowess, but another part is how you can be in the moment and enjoy what is happening and revel in the connection to another person. This dog is teaching me so much. Give dog credit where dog credit is due.
