Unbelievable amounts of redonkulousness

Remember when we had that vid last year of the horse dancing? Well, it's Canine Freestyle time, People. Not so much 'Cute' but 'OVERLOAD'. Get out the popcorn.

Of course 'Achy Breaky heart' was the next canine freestyle song selected [shifty eyes in disbelief]

... and great trainer, too... You can see how much fun they're having ;-) [Read More]


Haha, my Mom knows that lady. She is pretty famous in the dog show/breed scene.

Aw Man! DKN has been trying and trying to get this on here for evah!

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 01:16 PM

SO RIDICULOUS. Reminds me of this episode of Britain's Got Talent:

Prepare for absolute ridonkculousness.

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 01:17 PM

I did not. Just. See that.

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 01:20 PM

I think the best part was how happy the dog seemed the whole time.

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 01:21 PM

That first dog seemed soooooooo happy to be out there showing what it could do! That tail was wagging non-stop!

if this is wrong, i don't wanna be right.

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 01:34 PM

I remember an episode of King of the Hill about ...uh, whatever this is called...dog dancing?

Is there a CO category Cute or Freakish? If there is, I am leaning towards freakish.

I love how happy the dog in the first video looks!

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 01:37 PM

There was absolutely an episode of King of the Hill about this. I think it belongs in the cute category because the dog looks so excited and happy.

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 01:38 PM

Please, people, this is clearly cute or sad.

I mean, look at the form! You call that a kick-ball-change? And there's no extension. I want a strut-strut-strut not a clomp-clomp-clomp. Once again, from the top, you bitches, and this time, I want JAZZ PAWS.

A-five, six, seven, eight...

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 01:41 PM

Wow. The One That I Want dog was so clearly in 7th heaven I was nearly in tears. That's all they want, to spend time with their humans, and BOY, that had to be a lot of time spent together!

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 01:59 PM

THANK YOU METZ!!!!!!!!!!!!


*wipes tears*

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 02:02 PM

Okay, my dirty mind kicked in, and I couldn't help thinking "needs a HUMAN" more than a man. Then the dog's transparent joy nuked the bestiality refs going through my brain. Yep, I'm sick.

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 02:06 PM

Redonkulous doesn't BEGIN to cover this. Okay, so it's bizarre enough that people dress up in costumes (wasn't that Achy Breaky Heart costume on the guy with the Shih Tzu in Best of Show?)then train their dogs to dance with them. But who the heck goes to watch this?!

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 02:08 PM

This is almost as much fun as watching dogs on obstacle courses. Maybe I could get my ballerina kitty ready for competition. She loves to dance en pointe.

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 02:09 PM

Berthaservant, you are freakin' hysterical!!!

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 02:15 PM

big deal. jack (my silky-mix) and i could beat those pooches in the synchronized napping division, easy.

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 02:19 PM

I would definitely say cute, just because of how much these dogs are enjoying themselves!! Especially the golden retriever...he could hardly contain himself!!

I would definitely do this with my dog...if I had a dog. I don't think I would compete, though!

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 02:37 PM

This is why I like cats.

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 02:38 PM

Oh my god. I can't believe how happy that golden retriever looks. Wow. This made...well, if not my week, at least my Friday afternoon. I think I should go home now.

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 02:50 PM

Oh my gooooood!!!

That episode of King of the Hill was the first thing I thought of as well, katydid. I couldn't believe what I was actually seeing!!

I can't imagine how long that must have taken to train - oi vey! Those are some HAPPY pups, though - just look at all the energy and tail wagging!!!!

Def. cute =D

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 02:53 PM

I second Meg's comment, WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE?! More importantly, WHERE ARE THESE EVENTS HELD SO I CAN ATTEND?!

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 02:57 PM

Oh Megs ... You were definitely wrong on this one... That video was cute AND hilarious .... And just about every other word from the CO Glossary ...

::still laughing::

In Awwwe
 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 03:03 PM

I love dogs but don't own any at this point. These videos made my day! What happy dogs and so well trained. I just poked my cats to see if they wanted to dance around for a while. Nope. Sigh.

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 03:04 PM

I must be hormonal, because the joy on that yellow dog's face made me start crying... in the middle of the CAFE!

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 03:07 PM

In tears over here. Both tears of joy because of the joy emanating off that golden and in tears cuz it makes me miss our golden. Ahhh. :*(

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 03:13 PM

Okay, this has been said before but THIS really should be posted in the Glossary as the definition of "Redonkulous"!!!!!!!!

Isn't this kinda cruel? Clearly the dogs would not naturally choose to do this!! I'm sure the "happiness" is trained into the routine as well!

Nuff, nuff, wink!!!!! ;-)

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 03:20 PM

To each is own! At least the doggies look happy =)

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 03:29 PM

I can now die as a complete person.

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 03:32 PM

Ponygirl it's not just you, I cried too. Sometimes it's like you see something SO happy it just makes you wistful. I think I was that happy once around age 7...

I couldn't watch the second video though. I really can't stand to hear Achy Breaky Heart ever again, ever, for even a second, not even for redonkulous cuteness. (does that count as a 'nuff?)

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 03:35 PM

Ok that golden retriever! I WANT THAT DOG! He was soo happy! No, I wouldn't dance with my dogs but you have to admit that takes talent to teach a dog that.

crazy weinerdog lady
 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 03:40 PM

This really is cute - those are some very well trained dogs - mine will never be so good except in my dreams. I would love to go and see a competition but don't know where they have them around St. Louis

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 03:42 PM

oh and yeah, the retriever made me tear up too.... weird huh? Are all we women PMSing?

crazy weinerdog lady
 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 03:42 PM

Hey guys,

If you want to see more of these two, in the similar video I submitted over a year ago(ahem)the second half of the video is a separate routine - done to some hilarious techno song and Rookie does these perfect kicks that are just amazing.

Here's the link:

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 04:01 PM

Dancing with dogs like this is a competition at the world's biggest dog show Crufts in the UK. In fact its shown live on primetime BBC tv. Its quite popular over here.

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 04:15 PM

DKN - Have pity on us! We're already slain. Powerless I tell you! But pleased. Very pleased. (wipes warm and squishy tear. grins incoherently.)

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 04:21 PM

Beautiful golden retriever! I would love to see this done to "Hound Dog" or "Puppy Love" or maybe "Who Let the Dogs Out?"

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 04:31 PM

Hate to say it, but man is this old.

Yes, King of the Hill did an episode all about it.

Also, one of the characters on Skins has a father that does it.

And personally I remember seeing this video before the KoTH episode, which was season 7, 2002-2003, Dances With Dogs.

That's purty old, pardner.

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 04:32 PM

scoobie: the UK is truly a dog culture. I've never competed in dancing, but I have in agility, obedience, and herding trials. They seem to be a bit bigger out west than elsewhere. I'll tell ya, count me as one that would drive a fair stretch to see both these pairs compete in freestyle. I love this stuff.

As for the "needs a man" comment: show me a straight man that enjoys dancing this much and I'll concur. Until that day, I'd *much* rather dance with dogs. ;D

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 04:35 PM

I'd seen the first video before, but still cute. The dogs certainly seem happy. Jane and berthaservant, you both made me giggle.
Miriam, great video!

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 04:57 PM

The part where the golden puts his paw on his dance partner's hip just kills me every time I see it.

Working breeds like that retriever and the aussie thrive by working with people. I have a lab (the "Rid" in my username honors him) who is happiest doing field trials--he plasters that same insane giant doggie grin on his face the entire time.

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 05:49 PM

Mirian-- that was the cherry on top!! Fabulous.

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 05:52 PM

Seen the first one heaps of times (there's a reason I have it favourited on YT) but I never get sick of it. Rookie looks so HAPPY. (Apparently he's retired now). The second one I haven't seen, but man, that's a zippy little dog. For a moment there, I thought the film was being reversed!

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 06:17 PM

Well, every dog needs to feel like it has a job. And these guys seem to enjoy theirs. Fortunately, they have no idea how ridiculous their owners look. Or, maybe they just really enjoy helping their owners look like lunatics.

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 06:34 PM

Okay, these "dances" make both humans and animals look like complete doofuses. But the dogs are clearly having so much fun that it doesn't really matter. The humans must think it's fun, too, or I'm sure they wouldn't spend what must be most of their waking hours training their dogs to do this. To each his own. Cute for showing happy people and animals doing something silly and fun.

 |  Apr 25, 2008 at 06:52 PM

I know everyone has said it already, but I can't believe how happy that Golden is in the first video. So excited to be there, and into dancing to the music.

Sorry, to be incoherent, I've been up for about 20 hours.

Oh, and since nobody has said it yet, get that dog a pa-sickie!
