Amazing Dog Talents — 8 Canines You’ll Wish Were Yours (Part 2)

For the last 1,500 years, we’ve bred dogs to be our helpers, companions and protectors. They’ve come through for us, and so this week — Assistance Dog Week — we offer them a formal commendation that they can’t possibly understand.

The week is dedicated to the great work of seeing-eye dogs and other pups who assist the burdened, but there are some who also shouldn’t go unappreciated. It turns out that certain members of the canine community can talk, others can solve equations, and still others can take it strong to the hoop like a power forward. (That could be considered “assistance” if he’s on your team.)

So after the jump, we offer evidence that will make you realize your talentless pooch needs to get off his pillow and do something with his life.

If there were more dogs like Rookie, there would be fewer middle-aged men forced into taking a ballroom dance class.

Skate or die, dog.

If this video had ever gotten to Isiah Thomas, the appropriately-named Zeke would be counting against the Knicks’ salary cap until 2012

Yes, dogs can sing. Although their vocal style tends more toward Scooby than Scrappy.

Faith proves that, whatever the problem, it can be overcome if you stand up straight and walk like a man.

Maggie the math dog probably isn’t smarter than a fifth grader; however we’d take her over most kindergartners and “stars” of reality TV. (The first 1:30 of this video are decidedly un-amazing.)

As impressive as this is, we suspect the little ninja is eventually going to regret not having a plan to get back inside the cage.

We’re not going to pretend that this ditty is a threat to make the charts, but unlike that keyboard cat fraud, at least Porter the Musical Dog writes his own stuff.

15th Annual DAWG Walk & Pet Faire raised more than $12K for a great cause

15th Annual DAWG Walk & Pet Faire raised more than $12K for a great cause

When Andrea Horikawa rescued Vinny more than a year ago, the 3-year-old Chihuahua mix had “aggression” issues. The dog had been abandoned and abused. On Saturday, remnants of Vinny’s troubled past were no where to been seen as he wowed the crowd with his ability to walk backwards, do flips and speak in different tones on cue.

“It has taken a lot of work, but he is doing much better now,” Horikawa said before Vinny showed off his talents in the “Best K9 Trickster” contest.

The duo joined several others who gathered for the 15th Annual DAWG Walk & Pet Faire at the Norman P. Murray Community and Senior Center at the Village Green.

The event grossed $12,200, said Sharon Cody, president of DAWG, the Mission Viejo shelter’s nonprofit that raises funds for animals’ medical procedures. Proceeds will benefit the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center at 28095 Hillcrest.

The Mission Viejo Animal Services Center partnered with Dedicated Animal Welfare Group (DAWG) to host the fun-filled family event that included an impressive display of K9 Athletes in Action, pet contests, animal rescues, booths, entertainment, pet and wildlife exhibits and much more. The morning began with the singing of the National Anthem followed by a pristine 2-mile walk along Oso Creek Trail.

Dogs of all ages, breeds, shapes and sizes – many who had been adopted from the animal shelter – blanketed the park. Several pet owners spent the morning introducing their furry family members to new canine friends.

“I am excited to be here … this is a beautiful venue and a wonderful cause,” said Cindy Russell, who brought her Frisbee-loving dog, Cisco, along for some fun.
