Bodie the Border Terrier here reporting from the garden studio of smallbrowndogstv. I am honoured to have been asked to be on a panel of 3 judges to judge a dance competition to be held over the next couple of months. Part of my brief is that I showcase a dance routine. Being a really busy guy I did ask if I could simply show one of my existing routines but was told not to be so lazy and to do something fresh. So this week I advertised for a dance partner. To date I have had only one applicant. The following is the interview. Hello there frog, welcome to smallbrowndogstv. Thanks Bodie nice to be here - - Ahem, I'm a penguin actually ....... What's with the green flippers - shouldn't they be black? It's algae, - very hard to get off.

Why are they so big, don't penguins have very small flippers?

How rude, yes I have big feet, time to see a chiropodist and have them trimmed.

Oh dear, now I've hit a nerve the penguin has started to chew its feet.

Do you believe in positive reinforcement?

What do you mean?
I mean if I do something right you give me a treat. UM aren't you hiring me, shouldn't you throw me a fish or something?


How about we do an audition and I will see how you go with some of my moves, like weaving and jumping and spinnin and stuff. And I'll let you know. Oh that would be fantastic, come here and let me hug you you gorgeous little dog. Let me go!!!! Heres a preview of the audition, me n my new dance partner have 6 weeks to nail something respectable, cos not to be too blunt, the penguin needs help. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JGhZCEe53c So head on over to Honeys blog and check it out.


  1. Great interview Bodie. Great dance routine you two. That was "flippin" brilliant!!!

  2. Hehe I think the penguin has a point about throwing her fish ;)

    Great interview and loved the video - those penguins certaily have their work cut out for them with those feet!

    Licks and lots of slobber,

  3. Hi Bodie,

    Hmm...mate, I have to say - I think that penguin is going to seriously cramp your style. But I guess you haven't got many options...gotta work with what you got (Sigh) - I know all about that - I've got this crazy partner who's always squealing and doing things at 100mph - she just doesn't seem to know how to take things slow and easy like me.

    That positive reinforcement thing...don't know if penguins are intelligent enough for that. And are you sure she should be allowed out in those flippers? Doesn't look too steady on her feet to me. Watch she doesn't fall over and squash you!

  4. You is a natural on TV Bodie. I fink they should be givin you your own show. The penguin DOES need werk tho. She look like she not in charge of her own feet.
