Does this Golden Retriever Doing A Trick Upset You?

I shared this video on the Facebook page a few hours ago and it appears this video makes some readers upset.

There was an angry face reaction almost immediately, and a bit of a war in the comments section.  I think most people just saw it for wat it was, simply a dog doing a trick.

Funny, because you don’t hear about it when a dog balances a treat or other object, but I suspect it’s the fact that it is beer in the glass.

This is River, and the video is being taken at Sycamore Brewing in North Carolina. River’s owner says he likes to balance all sorts of things on his head, from pizza to jenga pieces.

Can I just say..please find something serious to get upset over…..  This dog is having the time of his life.

This golden retriever singing along to the piano will make your day

This is Oscar.  He can’t seem to help himself when his human starts to play “The Prayer”.

And here’s an encore…check out the audience member in the background…

We can’t wait till Oscar learns some more songs…so far he only chooses to sing to this one.

Any ideas what song might make Oscar sing?  I suggest “Memory”….like from Cats.

 

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?
