“Fido, may I have this next dance?”

Is there no end to the relationship between our dogs and us!

The BBC recently carried a gorgeous news item under the heading of: ‘Fido, may I have this dance?’: The women who dance with dogs.

Meet the women who spend years training their pooches to pirouette, plié, and polka – in the competitive global sport of Musical Canine Freestyle.

Spanish film maker Bego Antón has travelled across the USA documenting this curious, and heart-warming, hobby.

She spoke to BBC World Update’s Dan Damon about the skill and practice – and good humour – involved.

Luckily, in this interconnected world we now live in, the BBC video interview made it on to YouTube.

Let me close with a further photograph.


Rather produces a new twist to that old expression, “He dances as if he had two left feet!”

See you tomorrow!
