Downward-facing dog

Last weekend, Amy saw some lady trying to smuggle her dog into the opera. It was a small dog, stuffed into a purse. Someone saw the little dog and asked the owner: “Does that dog enjoy opera?” The owner replied that she “really did not know” if the dog liked opera or not. That is a reasonable answer. Who the hell knows what dogs, or animals in general, think about anything? But then the dog owner added that her ratdog preferred ballet and yoga. I find this hard to believe. Dogs can’t stand upright for longer than a couple of seconds. They can’t brachiate (extend their arms in a rotating fashion.) I can’t see how a dog could do a Sun Salutation Pose without serious discomfort.
