The video of the day is from a Michigan dance class. Where classy canines are learning the moves along side their owners. Take a look at this Doberman do-say-doh-ing. It's hard to tell whether it's paws or person who's keeping beat. This HOT-dog is trying to learn the grapevine that eventually turns into a country dance.
