Dance

My cousin Lynn has trained two of her dogs to their Championships in dog dancing.  Here she is with Coretta (Bernese) in one of my favorites among their routines:

Oh, how wonderful! As I said in my post, my intended shot for this prompt was of a friend and her dog in freestyle class, but they're not at competition level. This shot is especially nice because it shows the connection between partners that's so crucial to success.
Thank you! It's really hard to get decent dog dancing shots because you can't use a flash (distracting not just for the dog who is performing, but the other dogs around). I took a lot of pictures at that competition, but very few were keepers. The connection between Lynn and her dogs (Taz, a Belgian tervuren is her other champion, and Piper - oz shepherd - is just beginning) is really strong. I think it has to be to train this kind of complexity.
