With dogs! Yup, dancing with your pooch along to music is not only a fun pastime, but also a sport in its own right. The point of canine musical freestyle is to showcase the dog and handler in a creative, innovative, and original dance emphasizing their teamwork, artistry, and athleticism. On Nov. 9 and 10, the World Canine Freestyle Organization will hold the 2007 WCFO North American Nationals at the Red Lion Hotel Seattle South. Seats are limited, but try to see if you can get in to watch these amazing dogs (and their equally amazing owners) interpret music and display the unique bond between people and their animals. This is a great way to spend time with a pooch . . . while working on obedience at the same time. If you're interested in getting in on the action, look for a local club to get started — there are groups across the country and around the world!
