wednesday repeat: Newman does a handstand

It feels like a good day to do a handstand. Again. This blog post favorite shows BR Ambassadog trainer Sara Scott keeping Newman entertained with a new - ahem - trick(?) while he waited for a home in the Oakland Animal Shelter. We think it worked. Newman kept his little brains together until he was adopted, shortly after mastering this zen master yoga move.

This is one of my favorites! My other favorite is the Vick dog, not sure which one, black and white girl. She's sitting on the couch leaning back in between her siblings and showing her teeth for the camera. Makes me laugh every time.

Why sit when you can DO A HANDSTAND?! What an amazing pooch, and I think Sara deserves some credit, too!
