A YouTube from 2002.
It’s just six-and-a-half minutes long. Please watch it!
Then ponder on how these dogs were trained up to such a high standard!
Here’s the introduction to the video.
Hooked On Swing
World renowned dog trainer Mary Ray performs her “Hooked on Swing” routine at Crufts in 2002 with a couple of dancing dogs, Quincy and Kizzy as her dance partners. Since some of the tunes are Glenn Miller songs Mary is dressed in an authentic uniform from the World War Two era. A great performance that both Dance Fans and Dog Lovers should find entertaining.
A full-length documentary.
This is a post that you will have to settle down to watch; it’s 1 hour and 20 minutes long. (But see note underneath.)
The link was provided by my good friend of many years, Dan Gomez, and I haven’t yet watched the video. That will be the night of the 22nd when Jeannie and I will watch it.
But I sense it’s a good video!
21:15 We watched the video. It is very interesting but at the 40-minute mark it comes to the end and then restarts. So you only need to watch it for about 40 minutes.
Another very inspiring email from Margaret K.
This is only a short video.
But what it conveys is incredibly inspiring.
Or to put it in Margaret’s own words:
I thought that you and Jeannie might like to see this, if you haven’t already done so.
It brought a tear to my eye. Very inspiring – the way the world should be. The best of humanity.

There are a lot of good people out there!
