Dancing Golden Retriever Wows Judges on America’s Got Talent

58 year old Jose Fuentes and his dancing golden retriever Carrie have been performing since at least 2007.  They have made appearances on shows around the world, including France’s Got Talent and David Letterman.

This YouTube video, entitled “Dancing Merengue Dog” has received over 19 million views.  It was uploaded in August of 2010.

They recently auditioned for this season of America’s Got Talent and the show aired on May 31, 2016.  Here’s the full clip:

They managed to get 3 yeses from the judges, which means they move on to the next round.  I wonder what else they can do?

Once Simon was done laughing, he said it was “Incredible” and he wished his dog could do that.  He voted yes.  Heidi said she liked it for the first 15 seconds…and gave a “no”.

Mel B said she  “loved it” (yes) and Howie did the dramatic pause, before he gave the third “yes”

Carrie throws up her front paws with joy!

After the duo left the stage (Carrie danced off with host Nick Cannon) Simon said “I actually think the dog liked dancing”

Carrie appears to be enjoying herself, and the routine, to the song Shake Senora, is under 2 minutes, but there are some comments on the videos about her hips.  I’m curious what experts would say.

Do you think this is bad for the dog?

Shawn Booth from last season’s The Bachelorette and his Golden Retriever “Doodle”

If any of my readers are fans of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, they may know who Shawn Booth is. He’s basically the guy who called a guy “the other guy” earlier this year on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season and he proposed to her at the end.  She said yes!  (Yay for the super cool Canadian girl being selected).

I wasn’t a big fan of him on the show, I wanted “the other guy” but I have definitely changed my mind.  I blame editing for that anyways…l

Shawn has an 8 year old golden retriever named Tucker,..or maybe Doodle. He goes by both.  He seems to go everywhere with Shawn, like his true best fried. If you look through his Instragram pictures there are several of him and his dog.  They are actually kind of hilarious,  Bachelor fan or not.  Check them out.

Yesterday was Tucker’s 8th birthday! 

It seems Kaitlyn and Tucker get along well.

Here is a video of the three of them.  You can’t help but smile when you watch this!

Shawn’s dog has his own Instagram page @tuckerdoodledog

Even as a puppy, Tucker was a well trained boy.  This gem is from 2009 from Shawn’s YouTube channel.

Wishing them all the best of luck!

“Pup Quiz” on The Tonight Show Features Golden Retriever Puppies

Jimmy Fallon spreads love of golden retriever puppies on a new segment entitled “Pup Quiz” hosted by Higgins – where trivia is the game, and snuggling with a golden retriever puppy is the prize.  Here are the episodes so far….,

On August 6, 2015, actress Salma Hayek became the first victim.  This game consists of dog related questions with “Double Puppardy” and “Final Puppardy” while sitting in a leather easy chair.

Sometimes the puppies do bad things….

Next is Kaley Cuoco of The Big Bang Theory on Sept 17.  She is a huge animal lover and it is very adamant in this video…love her!

The final contestant so far is Drew Barrymore, one of my absolute heroes where Hollywood is concerned.  These puppies are a little frisky.

Stay tuned for more!

Golden Retriever rocks the keyboard in a Walk off the Earth Christmas video

The awesome Canadian group Walk off the Earth, who became popular on YouTube for doing some really cool cover songs I.e. Somebody that I used to Know (Gotye – 5 peeps, 1 guitar) released this video on YouTube last Christmas.  As a Canadian, I can say if you haven’t heard of this group, hopefully you will soon! (Actually, you have now!)

It’s The Little Drummer Boy, performed by the group, accompanied by a golden retriever on the keyboards, a husky on “percussion” and what looks like a shepherd mix..(anyone?) who stole the show on the cello! (ish like instrument)

You can also view the behind the scenes video here, which, sadly, doesn’t include much about the doggies…

It may be worth your while to subscribe to their YouTube channel here – WalkofftheEarth
