“Hand Dance” rehearsal for “We No Speak Peopleano”

Someone just asked if Black Magic is being faithful to Cricket now that they are married. In spite of a brief flirtation with a gorgeous Chiuaua named named Juliette, not only has Magic been faithful, but Cricket and Black Magic have become so close they are becoming a team.

Recently they were thrilled by a “hand dance” routine by Irish dancers Cleary & Harding’s “We No Speak Americano.” While not as polished, they did some brief rehearsal and put this video together.

Cricket & Black Magic – Washtub Bathtime

Cricket & Black Magic require frequent baths. Cricket has to be super clean when she goes on Therapy Dog visits, and that’s twice a week. Also, we’re at the ocean beach almost daily, and although the dogs aren’t the best swimmers, they do like getting in the water, especially to chase things or to cool off. That means a bath when they get home so they don’t smell like low tide. Also, they need to get the ocean salt off to keep from licking it from their fur or having it irritate their skin or eyes.

They are pretty tolerant about the baths, but it’s the drying off part they like the most.
