Dancing with the Doggie Stars: THE WINNERS!

 

Well! This has probably been one of the toughest ever competitions to judge and vote for! Every team that entered performed so wonderfully and were all so deserving for different reasons…how is it ever possible to choose?? :P

Our judges have been working hard all weekend to score all the routines out of 10…it was a tough job! Unlike some other dog sports, ‘doggie dancing’ (or Canine Freestyle, to give its proper name), isn’t just about finding the fastest doggie or the doggie who can stay still the longest or who can walk in exactly a certain position…and you might think it’s just picking the doggie who can do the best tricks and the slickest moves - but this isn’t a Tricks Contest, either! ;)

No, Freestyle really celebrates the partnership between a doggie and their human. So it’s not just about doggies doing fancy stuff by themselves – it’s about the doggie & human moving together. But not just like perfect robot machines either! ;) – they have to show a bond between them and a sense of creative teamwork. And although it’s called “dancing”, it’s not really about the human doing fancy dance steps – it’s more about the doggie and human mirroring each other, moving together ‘as one’. (A quiet, simple routine where the doggie & human really move together, with feeling, can be just as, if not more beautiful to watch, as a complicated routine, jam-packed with tricks but with the human just marching stiffly around, directing their doggie. One of our favourite routines which showed this beautifully was Kirby dancing to ‘It’s A Wonderful World’, with his human – the ending almost made Hsin-Yi cry!)

And of course, on top of all this, there has to be a sense of FUN – so that the doggie & human have to look like they’re enjoying themselves! Again, in no other dog sport are you judged on “how much fun you’re having” but in Freestyle competitions, you actually get points for this! :D Also, unlike other dog sports where beginners can often start on leash, in Freestyle, doggies & humans are only attached by the invisible leash between their hearts – so they can wander off anytime and it is only their great bond that keeps them together…

…and then you have to bring all these things together in just 1 ~ 2 minutes!! :P

When you think about all these points, it is a pretty amazing feat what all our dance teams have accomplished. Although my contest was really “just for fun” – our teams have still had to meet all these challenges…it was certainly not an easy job!  So you should all be incredibly proud of yourselves.

In fact, one of our judges actually IS an official Canine Freestyle judge for real trials & competitions in the state of Victoria, Australia – and she was very impressed by all the DWTDS dance teams. She said: “I think all the competitors have made a magnificent effort and congratulate them on their courage to enter the competition and to enter with breeds that are difficult to train and motivate.  All looked like they were having fun and that is what it’s all about!

Now, before I announce the winners, I must say thank you again to our wonderful prize sponsors for their support & their generosity - Superstudio Pop Art Pet PortraitsKyra Sundance & the Sundance Dog Team, Around A Hound Collars and Designer Duds for Dogs.

- and also a big thank you to my blog friends, Jed & Abby from Merryland, who have generously sponsored Mirror Ball Trophies for all the winners!

And now…

…the judges have made their decision…

Our judges have also very kindly spent time providing comments for each & every team -

  • Mango the Mastiff - Unexpected music for a big dog – but it worked well / Great choice of music,  the bigger dogs move slower so this music makes them graceful.  Thanks for making us laugh too / I love the costume and the choice of music, which suited Mango well
  • .
  • Dexter the Labrador - Some lovely heeling & fast catchy music / Another fantastic choice of music to show off Dexters enthusiastic jumping / Dexter is very attentive and animated.
  • .
  • Penny the Mix-Breed - Some nice moves in this – very nice bow at the end / Love the spin into the leg pull through move / Penny has some advanced moves, which were executed wonderfully. I love the pair bandanas that Penny and her human are wearing
  • .
  • Lassiter Chase the Sheltie -  Good use of matching the words of the song to the moves – loved the disco ball / Lassiter shows a lot of focus / I can see wonderful relationship between Lassiter Chase and his human. Also, the props are very original
  • .
  • Kasha the Great Dane - Some creative use of the furniture / What does Mama mean you guys don’t dance? Love the creative use of the chair to give height advantage / Very elegant!
  • .
  • Beryl the Greyhound - Nice costumes / Love the costume, and Beryl – love your bows. / I love the way Beryl’s human talks to her! Also, the bow move was nice
  • .
  • Frankie the Pig-Dog - Love the way he drops / Such an enthusiastic dog with some natural talent.  I think you should take things further with him. / The way Frankie lies down is so charming!
  • .
  • Christmas, Happy, Pinky & Jingle-Bell the Mini-Schnauzers - Good ending / Impressed that the dogs calmly wait till their name is called.  Good jumping up on the back move at the end / It’s amazing that their human controls all four dogs well and lets them dance in turn peacefully! There were some very cute moves too.
  • .
  • Tucker the Great Dane - Nice kicks / Hehe, another “high leg weaver” from the Honey School of Dance.  Love the “Bang you’re dead” move. / I love that popping and barking move!!
  • .
  • Oreo the Sheltie - Lovely leg weaving / Those reverse leg weaves are advanced.  Nice. / Those moves were in nice tempo and matched the music!
  • .
  • Tucker the Service Dane - A lovely compliment to Catherine’s dancing /  What a gentle beautiful dog.  Absolutely love the slow foot over the foot move which is a good visual with a large dog / That is a lovely costume Catherine is wearing. Also, I can see that Tucker always supports her by being with her
  • .
  • Nala the Italian Greyhound - Nice circle work / An enthusiastic wee dog that quite obviously loves doing this / Nala’s moves were so quick that I sometimes missed where she was
  • .
  • Lexi the Great Dane - Nice backing at the side / Very cool routine, (we hope to see you live!) / Yes, I can see Lexi enjoyed it a lot! Those pearl necklaces are so elegant.
  • .
  • Ludo the Sheltie - Good matching of music – liked the flower prop / Lots of hard tricks in here / Can I steal that roll-over move with your human spinning?
  • .
  • Prana the Dachshund - Great routine / A cool routine for a cool wee dog.  Awesome side to heels for a long dog too. / This is a wonderful, well choreographed routine!!
  • .
  • Megan-Joy the Golden Retriever - This dog is having fun / Lovely to see the enjoyment Megan-Joy gets from doing this / Eight takes!? That’s amazing! I definitely encourage you to keep on doing dancing
  • .
  • Griffen the Dogue the Bordeaux - Nice marching / Good match of actions to words and right on time / The music matches the speed of Griffen’s moves. I love his human’s costume too.
  • .
  • Lance the Corgi - Great tricks / Clever routine and good choice of moves for Lance / Lance can do so many advanced moves! Very impressive!
  • .
  • Lacey the Great Dane - Nice use of box / Getting a pat on the bum isn’t as easy as you make it look :-)  We know,  we have tried. / This is awesome!! Lacey has a lot of potential to be a great dancer like Honey!!
  • .
  • Hauwii the Small Musterlander - Liked his leaps / Yep jumping moves are Hau’is trademark / Those jumping moves are cool! Yes, the music matches well with Hauwii.
  • .
  • El’bow the Mastiff - Very funny to watch / A roaring success, this made us laugh so much / Oh, it was so much fun! I love El’bow’s humans moves – very unique!! Also, El’bow was eager to dance throughout the routine, even though his humans says he is lazy!
  • .
  • Shiva the Mix-Breed - Some great tricks in this routine / Impressive “on the spot” high jumps. / I think Shiva’s human is a great dancer. I am impressed how high Shiva can jump!
  • .
  • Barbie the Greyhound - Liked her crawl / We think this was still awesome attention after 7 takes / I couldn’t help watching Barbie’s eyes
  • .
  • Lucille the Great Dane - Liked the ending /  Good timing on the paw moves at 1.01, better to make them slow and exaggerate them for visual effect / Lucille’s paws are huge!! I had to sympathise with her having had to stop dancing while she was picking up dropped food.
  • .
  • Jackal the Beagle-Cross - Good use of props / We were holding our breath for the final salute / The choreography is very original. I have never seen a doggie dancing like this. Jackal looks like a real soldier!
  • .
  • Kirby the Mix-Breed - Lovely interaction between handler and dog / Beautiful interpretation of the music and loved the pauses for dramatic effect / I didn’t know a small dog like Kirby can dance gracefully like this!
  • .
  • Emma the Great Dane - Lovely choice of music – can really see the bond between them / This touched our hearts, Emma’s obviously no way ready to retire yet / Emma, you don’t look like a 13 year old Dane!
  • .
  • Bella the Mix-Breed - This dog enjoys her dancing / Bella is so focused and obviously loves doing this / 
     like the move Bella’s mom moves her body from one side to another while Bella moves her head in the same way.
  • .
  • Pepper the Kelpie-Cross - Lovely routine / All the tricks fit the theme beautifully and Mum danced nearly as well as Pepper. / It was unfortunate that the space was too small to show off Pepper’s tricks. Both Pepper and her human were cheerful throughout the routine, which was nice
  • .
  • Luna the Mix-Breed - Good use of the umbrella / Luna obviously likes that 2 paws up High five move / Luna and her human are really brave! Literally dancing in the rain!!
  • .
  • Lincoln the Great Dane - liked the human dressed in black – they complimented each other /watching the “how we made it” shows just how far you have come / I enjoyed the behind-the-scene part! I could see that so much effort had been put into this routine

.

Next…

…we have the Viewers’ Choice Award!

Thank you to all the people who voted for their favourite team - we had over 100 votes (!) and every pup got votes, so you have certainly been keeping us busy in the last few days! ;)

Especially as you know Hsin-Yi’s Maths is just terrible (she doesn’t even count her change in shops because she is too embarrassed by how long it takes her to work it out!) - Hah! I think it serves her right for saying rude things about my 3 brain cells – when it comes to Maths, she’s probably only got 1 working brain cell!! :roll:

So Hsin-Yi has been getting dizzy from counting up and adding votes and checking everything twice to make sure she hadn’t counted it wrong! :P But even with Hsin-Yi’s rubbish Maths, it was soon easy to see that we had a clear winner – a doggie & their human that got more votes than anybody else as the favourite team…

…announcing the Dancing with the Doggie Stars - Viewers’ Choice 

for 2011:

Prana the Dachshund (again!!)

Congratulations to Prana and her human for their awesome teamwork and wonderful routine!

But wait! We’re not finished yet! :P

I would also like to give the Best Costume Award to Jackal the Beagle-cross for his & his human’s matching costumes & props (which his human had built all by herself) in their amazing ”K9 Military’ theme routine – what a great effort!

.

And I would like to give the Best Use of Props Award to Pepper the Kelpie-Cross for her & her human’s wonderfully original, clever use of – er – “cleaning stuff” in their routine (even if Pepper did end up with a slightly unhealthy obsession with feather dusters! :lol: )

.

And now…I would also like to give a few other special awards.  All the teams were amazing in their own ways and really all deserve an award! :P But there were a few teams who had to overcome some very special challenges and their dance routines are a wonderful achievement, ‘Against All Odds’

They are:

Mango the Mastiff for heroically continuing to dance, even as he was fighting the Seizure Monster and then the horrible side-effects from his seizure medicines…

Megan-Joy the Golden Retriever for finding the courage to overcome her extreme fearfulness and the confidence to “get out there and shake her stuff”!

Tucker the Service Great Dane for being the best partner anyone could ask for and giving his human a new way to enjoy her beloved dancing…

 

…and last but not least, I would like to give the Terrific Teamwork Award to Christmas, Happy, Pinky & Jingle Bell, for being the only team in the whole contest to have FOUR doggies working together – if that doesn’t show ‘terrific teamwork’, I don’t know what does! :P

Could all the winners please email me your addresses so I can arrange your trophies & prizes?

But as I said, all the teams deserve an award so I will be sending a little something to each & every one of the teams who participated. So could EVERY TEAM please send me your postal address? My email is: bighoneydog (AT) gmail (DOT) com

* Hsin-Yi has disabled the “Right-Click” function on my blog (I’ll explain why in another post!) – so you won’t be able to save any of the images from this post – but if you’d like to have your award to put on your own blog, just let me know and I’ll email the image to you!

Thank you so much everybody – all our dance teams, our ‘spectator doggies’, our judges, our sponsors and everyone else who has helped to make my Dancing with the Doggie Stars contest such a success!!

I hope you have all enjoyed it as much as I have and had lots of fun! :D

.

And now, me & Hsin-Yi are going to do a bit of this…! Hee! Hee!

* I know we’re awfully, awfully behind with visiting blog friends (I think our Google Reader is on over 200!) and we will try our best to catch up as soon as we can but Hsin-Yi says her brain feels like mashed potato now and she needs to have a bit of a break from blogging & blogs in general - so we might not be around for a while. Hope you’ll understand!

My humans are also doing quite a lot of travelling these few weeks so they will be very busy and we won’t always be home (Hsin-Yi actually spent most of last weekend in airports & on Big Flying Machines, trying to get all the entries up & finish my DWTDS Finale post on her laptop machine, with poor internet connection and not able to get to photos or YouTube video links properly…plus she had a horrible fever & flu sickies and had to breathe through her mouth like a goldfish the whole weekend…oooh, major stressy!! So I’m sorry for all the delays! ) – so I hope you’ll bear with me if I can’t come to visit much or reply to messages very quickly! :P

  4. Amber-Mae says:

    Finally!!! Big congratulations to Prana & her hoomie for being the Grand Champion! Me thought their routine was nice & neat. And Prana was such a happy camper. Look at her tail go! Great routine, great team & they totally deserved the grand prize.

    Congratulations to all the other winners too! Everybody’s routines were FAB! And thank you for the very lovely award to my daughter Megan & hoomie Melissa. They LOVE it!!

    This was such a great competition. Me hopes there will be another one next year! HEE HEE

    Pee/S: I am sorry Hsin-Yi got very sickie. I hope she is feeling better now.

  5. Jed & Abby in MerryLand, USA says:

    Congratulations to the winners and to all the participants! Great job, every doggie & human! And kudos to the judges and most especially to the Founder, Honey, and to Hsin-Yi for creating this contest.

    Jed & Abby

  6. Congratulations to the winners and congratulations to everyone who entered. You were all amazing and should be very proud of yourselves. Thanks for a fabulous week of entertainment. Take care Hsin-Yi. Hope you feel well very soon. No worries, love Carol.

  7. parlance says:

    Congratulations to the winners! I’m going to bookmark the page with every one of the routines, because I intend to look at all of them again and again, analysing the special moves that everyone made. I think there’s lots to be learned.

    I’d also like to thank you, Hsin-Yi, and the judges also. It was great fun!

  8. sara, oreo & chewy says:

    COngratulations to ALL the winners AND participants. I think everyone accomplished so much.

    Thank you to Hsin-Yi for being everyone’s inspiration and mentor.

  9. Mango says:

    Well, for once I am not feeling miffed that I did not win because that little wiener dog sure had an amazing entry. The tail action alone was overwhelming. This contest was so super duper fun! In fact I hope you do it again because I have adjusted to my medicines and am thinking up a new routine for sure. Congrats to all the winners and thanks so much for my special award because I will say that at the time of the filming I was quite wobbly on my pegs and it was most difficult to stay dancing. The Pea is juiced up too and ready for a new routine (perhaps with momma in a more tasteful outfit). Thanks to the judges too! That sure wasn’t an easy task.

    Slobbers,
    Mango

  10. Jaana says:

    I can’t believe it! Seriously? WOW! Thank you sooooo much! I was a bit bummed after the filming because it didn’t quite go as planned technically but Hsin-Yi assured me that it was ok and now this! I am just overwhelmed right now! Prana got a new collar this morning for being a good sport and apparently it was already well deserved :)

    Thank you all so much for voting for us in the viewers choice and a special thanks to Hsin-Yi for hosting this amazing event in the first place! Congratulations to all participants for their results because even finishing a routine and submitting it is a result to be really proud of! After seeing all these enteries I was humbled by all the different people and dogs and how they managed to put it all their partnership and love into a few minutes of moving to music.

  11. Kasha the Dainty Great Dane says:

    Congratulations to all the pawticipants!! We are all winners! Prana was amazing…loved her wagging tail…she looks like a professional doggie dancer!

    AARF Kasha the Dainty Great Dane

  12. Congratulations to all the winners AND to Honey and Hsin-Yi for hosting this wonderful event. It was great to see all the entries and advice each week. Hope you enjoy your rest!

  13. Aww poor Hsin-Yi! I hope you’re feeling better now.

    Congrats to all of the winners! Everyone did such an amazing job. :)

    And thank you for giving Jackal the best dressed award. :) He searched long and hard for that costume. :)

  14. Thank you for this contest and we appreciate all the hard work that you, Hsin-Yi and the judges had put in to make this a success. We still could not believe that we had contested in a dancing competition! Congratulations to all the participants…they are all great in their own ways and they are already winners!!

  15. Thanks for the entertainment of watching all the videos! Congrats to the winners!

    Hsin-Yi, please get better soon !

  16. Lassiter Chase the Sheltie says:

    Congratulations to all the winners! What a fun contest! I sure am glad that I had the chance to participate in such a great contest! We were all fantastic! Thank you again, Honey, for all the time and effort it took to host the contest. It all looked so professional! That sure must have been a BIG job organizing the contest — I guess it takes a really BIG Dog to pull off a great contest like that, I guess that is why they call you BIG Honey Dog. You really did a wonderful job! Well Done! From, Lassiter Chase the Sheltie

  17. rottrover says:

    Big congratulations to everyone!! And thank you Honey and Hsin-Yi for your creativity and desire to share the fun you two have with others!! The best part was watching how much FUN everyone, doggies and humans, was having!

    -Gizmo, Bart and Ruby

  18. Cheryl says:

    I am so thrilled with the way things worked out, that little Dashie deserved to win. I think everyone did a fantastic job and I watched every single video. There are some amazing dog and human partners out there. Thanks for making it happen Hsin-Yi and Honey. Enjoy some time off!

  19. Milka says:

    Good choice! Congrats 2 the winners… congrats 2 the participants… Congrats 2 the producers… :)

    Honey and Hsin-Yi, go take you well deserved rest and come back soon with more of these great inniciatives, please! :)

    Dane slobbers and human kisses from
    Milka and MC

  20. Congratulations to Prana!! Such a fun routine!
    And congrats to all the entries! It was such fun to watch them all!
    Honey and Hsin-Yi you deserve a long break! I cant imagine how much work it took to coordinate all of this. You two deserve an award too!

  21. Indiana "Bones" Taylor says:

    Hi Honey – woot woot to ALL the winners and everyone who danced, we had so much fun watching each and every one of you dance. Hsin-Yi, so sorry you got the sickies, that did not sound like much fun at all – especially on a big flying machine, where sickies seem to be hiding on everything :( We wish you well in your travels – me and my humans are going to a big beach next week for something called “vacation”. My human Diane hasn’t had a proper vacation since I was a little pup (over 2 years now) and she is ready to just relax and take me in the big waves – and sit and read her books in peace and quiet.

    Bye and congrats again to Prana – the big weener, as my human Dave would say!!!

    Your friend,

    Indy Bones

  22. Ricky says:

    Congratulations to all of the winners! What a great competition! We hope to enter next year if this becomes an annual contest!

  23. Congrats to all the winners and everyone who competed! Thank you also for your wonderful comment on our routine! I had so much fun working with Kirby on this and we recently learned some more new moves and are trying to find a new song to use! Thank you so much Hsin-Yi and Honey for putting together this fun contest! It had to be tons of work on your part, but look at all the fun we had!

    Hope you are feeling better!!

    Cheryl and Kirby

  25. Big paws up to Honey & Hsin-Yi for co-ordinating this competition! How fabulous to see so many doggie people engaging their canines in such fun. Not sure our mascot Miyuki would have such impressive moves; she’s lucky if she moves out of the way when a ball gets thrown for a game of fetch with her playdate partners!
    Keep on dancing!

  26. sprinkles says:

    Congrats to all the winners. I love how you made it a point to find something positive to say about everyone’s videos.

    Hope Hsin-Yi is feeling better now.

  29. bubba says:

    mommy just informed me that dachsunds are sometimes known as “hot dogs”.

    well why didnt someone tell me that before..

    I LOVE HOT DOGS!!!!!

    congratulations to the dancing hot dog. i will be dreaming of you tonite.

    love bubba

  30. Congratulations to Prana, wasn’t he outstanding!! And his Mum too:) Awesome teamwork and costumes. And big congratulations to the other winners. Wasn’t it a lot of fun:) But I think the competition was probably harder on Honey and Hsin-Yi than anyone else. They both put in so much work helping us along, no wonder Hsin-Yi got sick and is very tired:( I hope you have a good rest now and get better soon. We look forward to your return hopefully soon.

  31. Linnéa says:

    Congratulations! I thought it was too hard to vote… I just couldn’t choose, but now, in retrospect, Prana would have been a very good choice!

    And Honey, I know you’re tired, but I just thought I’d mention that I have great news. :) See you!

    Awesome contest!

  32. Becky Kidd says:

    WOW what a wonderful blog. I really enjoy the dogs dancing. I love Honey. How beautiful!!!!! Enjoy your travel.

  33. Tessa says:

    Congrats to ALL the winners and ALL the contestants too!

    I do think you both deserve a nice rest.

    I sure hope that you think of having this be a yearly contest! I know a lot of hoomans and pups would look forward to it!

    woos, Tessa

  34. Bronnie says:

    Congratulations to all the winners! What a lot of work everyone put in (esp. Hsin-Yi and Honey, admiring your computer skills Honey). I voted for Prana also, though I have a soft spot for daschunds. But all the doggies and their humans did great. Enjoy your rest and I hope Hsin-Yi is better soon. xo

  35. Anakin Man says:

    Congratulations to all the contestants and the winners!!
    Great job to everyone and such hard work!

    We enjoyed this so- great contest Hsin-Yi and Honey :)

    Sending hugs,
    IzZY, TriXie and Anakin Man

  36. Kristine says:

    Congratulations to all the winners and participants for making this such a huge success! And thanks again to Hsin-Yi and Honey for putting all of this together and working very hard to make it so much fun. I am so glad we joined in and am inspired to try something like this again one day. Who knows?

    PS. I can’t believe they thought I was a good dancer… Really?

  37. Bailey says:

    Congrats to all the winners!!

    Woofs & hugs,

    ~Bailey (Yep, I’m a girl!)

  38. Woohoo! Congrats to the short doggy!

  39. Emma says:

    Congratulations to everyone for such wonderful routines. We enjoyed watching them.

    Honey that was such a magnificent idea to host a DWTDS. It was the perfect opportunity for me to prove to my Mom that I am more than a pretty couch potato. I really loved learning how to do the “peek-a-boo” trick.

    Well done everyone you are all pawsome!!!!!

    Emma

  40. Lucille says:

  47. Miss Kodee says:

    I watched Prana and just love how her tail never, ever stops wagging. It’s great to see her owner so softly praise her too! Now I fully intend to work my way down the whole list and watch all of them. Congratulations to everyone and thanks you to everyone for providing such fun for us all to watch!

  48. Hi Honey and Hsin-Yi,

    We have received the parcel today (26 July 2011). We just love this prize! The medals, the certificates, the toy and the car sticker…they are all wonderful!! We especially love the toy…something the human said she has wanted to get us. Thank you very much!

  49. Esany says:

    I really desire to have a dancing dog like yours. I wonder how much time and effort you spent to train your dogs.
