P.S. That photo is from a demo we did at a Dog Show. I have a much better picture of Wonka and I in that same pose from a competition. I'm kind of wondering why the author chose to use that pic instead of one of the others I sent. Hmmmm......
maybe the resolution was better?

I found a better link to post of the new song Wonka and I are working with. This one isn't live with all the background noise like the one I posted earlier.
It's a long song and so I've cut/edited it to use only about half of it. I like the changes of pace/tempo and Wonka and I will be doing a lot of spins and variety of movement. I've found that Wonka does a bit better with continued movement (if we don't stop mid-song and do a "spot" trick)... as much as he enjoys doing his little paw touches (and the audience loves them), it takes too long for him to get back into the dance and I seem to "lose" him because he's still sitting there for several beats after he is supposed to be standing again. So, I'm taking a different approach with this song... keeping those "spot" moves to the beginning and end and trying to keep us flowing through the middle. It has been a challenging song for me to choreograph, but I think it will be beautiful when it's done. Wonka is still in great shape, but he is getting older and I think this song suits him right now.
