We love our dogs – no question about it! – and our relationship with them provides us with an immeasurable amount of comfort, security and companionship. But dogs are so much more than furry security blankets. They have a tremendous sense of joy and playfulness, and their unbridled silliness makes us laugh. Today’s Dog Star, Giles, is the epitome of canine frivolity; his games are played for his own amusement but we all get to join in the fun.
“Giles earned his Indian name, Dances with Hose, when he was two years old. We were visiting friends on a very hot day. Giles could not be coaxed into the pool, so we got the hose out to keep him cool. It was love at first sight. All he wanted to do was dance with the hose. We had to put him in the house to keep him from over-exhaustion. First thing in the morning he was out on the patio barking at the hose to come and dance. To this day (he is 6), whenever he sees a hose, he paws it and barks at it in an attempt to get it to dance. If the AKC had a competition for Best Dancer with Hose, our Giles would win hose down!
“In case you couldn’t tell, Giles is an English Cocker Spaniel, a fantastic breed that is one of the best kept secrets in the dog world.”
Giles is owned and loved by Steve and Jo of northern California.
