My daughter is a huge fan of One Direction, a boy band from the UK. She's constantly playing their music and telling me all about the band members. Apparently, One Direction has a new song out: The Best Song Ever. My daughter has been playing it non-stop on her iPod.
"Mom, you have to listen to this," she said.
"I already have," I replied. "About fifty times."
She walked over to Schultz, our German Shepherd. "Schultz, listen to this!" She played it again.
Schultz cocked his head and listened. Then he stood up.
"Look, Mom. He wants to dance."
Uh huh. I wasn't too sure about that. But then something funny happened. Right after one of the boys shouted, "Owww," in the lyrics, Schultz made a funny noise that sounded like, "Owww!"
My daughter was thrilled. "Schultz is a Directioner!" she exclaimed.
All right then. We'll notify One Direction that they now have their first doggy fan.
Here's the video if you'd like to watch it. (It's a little long because they do a skit before they sing. All the characters are One Direction band members - even the "lady.") Enjoy!
