I Thought You Said Liverdance

So I just dance, and there’s no liver? Then the jig’s up!

This is Instagram user my_aussie_gal, whose adorably clever dog Secret does lots of tricks. Thanks to Andrew Y.

    I hope that they do dog dancing. She’s a natural! The dog I mean.

    I’d give her all the liver I had, if I had any liver to give her.

      On top of everything, Allein, you’re a poet.

        (The “to give her” part came after I originally posted. Luckily in time to edit. πŸ˜‰ )

    The pup is cute but somehow it disturbs me that the books aren’t neatly arranged in the background. (not that my home looks perfect, but I enjoy looking at nice bookshelves)

      First of all, the happy skippy hops are the best!

      I read the bookshelf as one that would not intimidate me. I would feel comfortable going up and picking up one of the books to enjoy, not just go up and look at the spines while clasping my hands behind my back.

        Yes, that’s a friendly looking bookcase – I have to admit ours are more towards that look. I don’t like it when books are all upright – I like some piled – spines out, of course. I have to put some larger books with the spines facing up. My brother had a huge collection of SciFi and other paperbacks and they were all in perfect order – drove me nuts. And God forbid if you opened one and cracked a spine. Cause for banishment.

    The little hops are keeling me!! I go to the Irish American Club almost every Wednesday night for free Irish Set dancing lessons. We need a pup to come dance with us.

    Michael Flatley, you’re no longer Top Dog! πŸ˜€

      His ego was a bit much – I always thought of him as having his black belt in Irish dancing. He was an amazing dancer and did a lot to bring visibility to Irish dance so I can appreciate that about him.

    Isn’t that great! I was amazed at the hops, too – the dog is watching so intently. I used to be able to do a few jig steps but never got good but, like you, Lunachickfringe, I know the effort involved.

      I fell for the very first time this week. Tripped up in my own feet and catapulted backwards onto my backside. I was told it looked spectacular but I was fine. I am VERY clumsy and fall more than the average person, I would say. So when a co-worker (who competed and now teaches all forms of Irish dance) heard of my interest she kept inviting me to the free lessons until I came. I was hooked after that. It’s nice because it’s informal and free. I was surprised by how NOT clumsy I was. I have always loved to dance. It’s hard to get me off the dance floor but that’s the normal “get on the floor and move your body no training involved” dancing. If we got ourselves a dancing pup for set dancing night, I’m sure we would all learn a lot faster!

    Again a non-human mammal outshines me in the dance department.

    Anyone ever see the dog that dances with its owner to the Grease song “You’re the One That I Want”?

    You will never be as enthusiastic and focused as a working sheepdog. And that’s praising with faint damns.
