Dobby and I are the team in the bottom left corner. He broke his down stay and I was a little nervous but we learned a lot in that routine. We improved the routine this year when we were asked to perform it at four different festivals and events this past fall.
This year's routine was The Lion King featuring a medley of songs from the movies and Broadway play. Dobby was chosen to play Simba and I was Rafiki. We began this routine in May of last year and continued to work at until the Kennel Club show in September.
We performed this routine at our county fair twice, the state show, and the Lexington Kennel Club show.
At the Lexington Show we were approached by a member of the Lake Cumberland Kennel Club who asked our team to perform at their Bow Wow Christmas Festival. We agreed and revamped our routine to feature a medley of Trans Siberian Orchestra music.
After we got our Thriller performances out of the way in October, we devoted most of November to the Christmas routine. We kept a lot of the elements of the Lion King routine but put a new spin on it. The crowd loved it! We performed the routine twice during the festival with big crowds both times.
Our last performance of the 2013 season was our most treasured. We were asked to perform for a wonderful group at a local nursing home. We performed shorten versions of our routines and freestyles. Afterwards we got to spend time with the residents. Our dogs loved the attention from the residents and we loved sharing time with them as well.
