Freestyle Dog Dancing

According to the fair announcer, it's "one of the fastest growing sports." The training that goes into it is impressive, certainly, but that statement made me laugh.
Jake told me about a King of the Hill episode where both Hank and Bobby Hill end up competing against one another in dog dancing at the fair. Click here for some quotes from that episode. Two of my favorites:

SKETCH RANDALL: I wish everyone who denies the pure athleticism of dog dancing could see what I'm seeing right now.
DON: We are witnessing a dream. I hope I never wake up and this dream lasts forever. A boy, a dog, a dance.

We didn't want to miss the opportunity to see it live, and we weren't disappointed.

If freestyle dog dancing is considered a fast growing "sport," I'll have to officially relinquish my quest to have all judged events expunged from the Olympics. It's a losing battle. The sports world is being taken over by dancing doggies and I am powerless to stop it.
