Malaysia's 1st National Dog Dancing Competition

Hi everyone I am still alive & kicking! BOL! Me & my family have been busy this past week & we're still going to be pretty busy this week as well, preparing for a very big competition that will be happening this coming Saturday & Sunday. We are going to be competing in Malaysia's 1st Dog Dancing Competition! Me, Chloe & River are competing. Chloe & I will be doing Novice Freestyle & River will be doing Novice Heelwork To Music. Our songs, routines, props & costumes are ALL ready! We are sooooooooo totally can't wait!!

This is what Melissa is going to be wearing in my routine. Can you guess who she is going to dress up like & also can you guess what song we will be dancing to?

Those poles will be used in River's routine. They are made out of long yellow foamy things & colourful plastic bins. There are rocks in those bins so that they will not topple over when River goes around them. He tends to hit them sometimes. He's going to be dancing to some kind of epic exploding music. Can you guess what kind of music River's dancing to? The answer is in this very paragraph.

Chloe will be dancing with Melissa's mom. The umbrella & the tub will be their props. Now can you guess their song?

Here I am retrieving Melissa's hat. This is going to be part of our routine. I LOVE retrieving it because I always get plenty of treats.

Dance steps are written down on paper for reference. Honey said this is the best way to choreograph a routine so we followed her advice. Doing this actually makes everything a LOT easier for you. You remember all your steps better this way.

I am so excited about the competition! Do you think we're going to do well & bring back home the big trophy? OH & if any of you can guess all the songs/music correctly, I will send you a cookie!

I think you will bring home the trophy! This is so exciting! I can't wait to see how it goes! Best of luck to you!

Thank you for your kind words on my blog. Top lines are so important and it is so nice to have someone compliment Leroy on his:) We see a lot of not so good ones in the ring with Newfs too!

Yes yes yes, you will for sure bring home a trophy. I do hope your family will record your dance routines so we can watch them.'

I love it when a golden girl dances.

good luck, good luck
And remember that sometimes a trophy can be a big heave shiney thing or sometimes it can just be a job well done and a doggy cookie from your biped

Goth ways you are a winner to me.

Love

So pawsome, and very exciting! I know you pups will bring home the big trophy!

My guesses:

Amber & Melissa - Michael Jackson, "Beat it"

Chloe and Melissa - "Singing in the Rain"

River - sorry pup! Have no idea! :-<

You pups are going to rock! Good luck! Please get some photos and/or videos to share.

Get your groove on! BOL!

Winnie said...

I am so excited for you. I can't wait to hear how it goes.

I will guess that the first song is Luck Be A Lady from Guys and Dolls.....the second one is maybe The Final Countdown and the other one I'd say Singing In the Rain too.

Love and licks, Winnie x

I haven't a clue but I'm guessing it's going to be pretty fancy, from the looks of things!

I found your blog off of Pet Blogs United and have to admit I am a little overwhelmed at the quality and quantity of the offering.
I have recently started a blog devoted to pets. It is a little different in that what I do is search daily through 30 to 40 on line publications to find interesting articles related to pets in several areas. I try to post at least 6 to 8 per day with a description of the article and link to it. If you visit the site you will see a several day sampling of it and a statement at http://www.bestpetblog.blogspot.com he beginning of what I hope to do. If you would care to look and let me know I would be honored.
Thank You

Honey the Great Dane said...

Ooh, Amber-Mae - I'm getting nervous & excited with you!! Hee! Hee! :-) But I'm sure you will all do FABULOUSLY!!!

Hsin-Yi says I'm not allowed to guess the songs since she has been given some "insider information" by your human and so it would be an unfair advantage! But I just wanted to say I LOOOOOOVE your costumes!!!!

Wishing you LOTS & LOTS of good luck! Rock 'em!!

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane
