Does Your Pet Have a Talent?

Do Tell: Does Your Pet Have a Talent?

Although we are all still feverishly voting for Samson in the Worldwide Fido Awards here at Sugar HQ, I realize his category isn't really one that you could label as a "talent." Cute? Absolutely. But as beauty goes, it's more of a gift than an achievement!

But there are some pets that perform truly amazing tricks, stunts, and feats. Is your pet gifted like Tillman from Greatest American Dog – who can ride a skateboard better than most humans? Have you considered submitting your pet for David Letterman's Stupid Pet Tricks? Tell us what talent your pet holds in the comments below!

I got my dog around Hanukkah time, and the first trick I taught her was "dreidel." When I say that, she spins around in a circle and barks. :)

Big Hungry Joe can make a 40-lb bag of dog food disappear in the blink of an eye! He also runs into the bathroom and shuts the door whenever the doorbell rings. :dog:

My boyfriend is a singer. And so everytime he sings, Polka sings with him! :) She totally follows the rythme and that's so cute! :)

I had a Shaded Silver Persian girl that had to high five anyone that she came across! Emma would run up to everyone she met, look them directly in the eyes, and stretch a front paw up to be tapped. The "talent" part was training the humans she regularily saw to reciprocate. ;)

Of course - my baby can always make me smile no matter my mood! But, I don't think the judges would award him any points for that! ;)

Eegor can stand on his hind legs, like a circus monkey, for a substantial amount of time. It's actually really funny!

Unless you include being cute or doing the wormy than no Cuba does not do any tricks.

Bailey, my Bichon/Cocker, can walk on her hind legs for a ridiculous amount of time. Jager, my Pug, has now taken to trying to copy this and I'm certain that he can spin in circles on his hind legs for longer than any other Pug!

he only does the moonwalk but that's about it ): no other talents aside from that.
