Hops in the Right Direction: Core Strength

Warning:  This is not a real post.

As a dog with altered mobility, it's important that Prada's core muscles are strong enough to support the way she moves.  For quite a while, I wondered how to go about building those muscles up.  A trainer friend suggested teaching her to sit pretty, but Prada never really took to that.

What she has taken to, without any prompting from me, is pretty astounding, and more than a little funny.  With her back legs in front of her, she sits back and takes her front paw off the floor (or me, you know, whatever) and spins around to see things.  Like a top or a Sit-N-Spin.  Or a Weeble.

So I think her core muscles are probably fine.
