    You obviously have something worth strutting about! What could it be?

    With a coat, eyes, and markings like that, you don’t need a fancy gait to get attention, Rusty. We’re already all looking at you.

    PS – Thanks for your comment on my last post! I agree with everything that you said.

    I knew even before I saw the second picture that it had to be Rusty the Rooster! I’m next in line behind Wild Dingo to get tickets to that show! I am hoping he is practicing a circus act and not plotting how to push Natasha off the edge of that cliff!

    How do you ever refuse him anything with that face?

  22. KB on April 8, 2010 at 9:20 am

    I think that Rusty is being a very good dog! It looks like the leash is under his leg. I’ve trained my dogs to lift their paw high so that I can slip the leash under their paw when that happens… So, that’s what Rusty is doing!

    I love the Rusty! He needs his own fan club. I’ll be the president of it.

    Woooos Rusty! woo certainly know how to prance, and I loved Wild Dingo’s comments, are woo sure woo do not work fur the circus?

    Well, you can tell by the way I use my walk,
    I’m a woman’s man: no time to talk.
    Music loud and women warm, I’ve been kicked around
    since I was born…

    Go Rusty!! Mr. Telltaler.

    Like a Clydesdale. How is he at hauling beer? 😉

  27. Sierra Rose on April 8, 2010 at 3:28 am

    Your strutin’! Just walkin’ with a purpose…singin’ along…
    That looks quite like my car harness! Which is working very well….
    Nice to visit! Walk on pals!

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

    Of course. What readers don’t know was Roo-Roo moonlights in Cirque du Husqui and his antics, though seemingly silly to readers, are in reality difficult training scenarios. The “walk behind the hu-dad?” and “walks way from the pack on the high rises?” Those prepares him for his blind folded tight rope act. Laugh all you want. The money is in his bank account. This latest training session captured is probably in preparation for his newest, never-been-done trick. Don’t know about you, but i’m buying season tickets to the show!

Kiska says that on hot, sunny, spring days, you have to find shade wherever you can. Thanks Big Brother Kodiak.
