The strange eating dance of a hungry dog.

The "Year of the Dog" video contest continues (quick, submissions are due Wednesday May 9!) with this video of Li'l Pup, submitted by his owner, Byron B. Mathews, Jr. It shows, according to Mathews, Pup's pre-dinner "routine." Says Mathews: "No one is exactly sure why he does this, but when there is only dry dog food in his bowl, he goes into a dance-like trance, dipping his nose in and out of the bowl. He does not do this routine when there is wet dog food or some table scraps in the bowl."
