Dancing Dogs

We recently had the pleasure of participating in a photo shoot at Seattle's Pacific Northwest Ballet to profile the dancers and their dogs. The studio was bustling as dancers and dogs alike posed for their picture and here, we profile each dog in more detail, from favorite foods to hidden talents (of which there are many).
