Our granddaughters love to dance. They do ballet, modern, step and tap dance and take to the floor for anything from classical music to jigs and reels. Our daughter and I love to play Newfoundland music for them, especially jigs. We all join in for a scuff, a dance in Newfoundland vernacular. The youngest, Owen, has a few scuffs any time he hears the music. However, he isn’t the only one. Even Georgie, the golden retriever, joins in.
In the photo, she watched as we danced. When the next song started, she sat in front of me and jumped up to place her front paws on my shoulders and danced around with me. She joins in all the time now too.
It appears many creatures, including gulls which are abundant along the coast of Newfoundland, enjoy a few scuffs as well. They dance like Owen.
