Final results of the Freestyle World Championships 2010
Again I must say as yesterday: What a fantastic performance. They really nails the happiness and joy from the Jungle Book - and especially from King Louis i Disney's version.
They show so many moves, tricks and turns so it almost takes my breath - and when you think:
Oh, now they are doing so - they do something completely different.
A fantastic trick in this performance is the dog dancing on its own in and out and between the figures in the tableau on the scene.

What a fantastic performance -it was a wonderful asian-inspired act.
The act starts with the handler in a big basket with the dog looking for her around the basket - on the floor and on frontlegs with backlegs on basket running around it. Nice trick.
In the other end was a big snake with head in the air - and they danced to it and around it with a bunch of turns and tricks.
The performance end in a perfect way with the dog jumping into the basket and closing the lid.
Judges' points at the finals: 27,60 which gives a total score of 53,97

Again we were brought to the heart-breaking world of Annie - but at the time time the dog showed Annie's positive mind entering the ring.
Biscuit was saying - we are going to have fun - and they did.
Handler and dog really performs as one.
I especially noticed the dog running splendidly backwards round the bucket. The act ended with the dog performing fantastic turns round the handler - while dreaming of tomorrow so much in accordance with music.
Judges' points at the finals: 27,80 which gives a total score of 55,27
The judges points for the finals is 26,43 and the total became 53,10 p

The music says Dancin' Fool, but there certainly were no dancing fools in this performance.
The act began with handler and dog turning their head from side to side at the same time - and then it broke lose :-)
The performance was so full of activity all the time with lots of jumps, turns and tricks - and every thing in perfect accordance with music.
I noticed one speciel trick, when dog dog turned round it selves bowing.
Wonderful start on the freestyle finals.

Their program was fluent and the position changes were really good and sooo fast :) They used a lot of different positions (all of them?) and had some very impressing moves and changes behind Anjas back.
The judges points for the finals was 28,90 and the total is 57,10
Thank you Austria for a brilliant performance. The dog is a big border collie, but all through the performance it seemed like the handler and the dog was flowing in the air just a few inches above the ring floor.
It was so nice to see, when they made small running steps together.
They were precise in every movement according to the music - and the handler made splendid use of the dog running through her legs in almost every change in position.
