Dear Abby - Videos Abby Likes: Harlso, The Balancing Hound

Dear Friends,

I hope you have had a good week! I have a real treat for you today. My friend, Chantelle (who has two lovely Chihuahuas named Louie and Lola) shared the story of Harlso the Balancing Hound. I find Harlso fascinating (and, ahem, quite handsome too!).

Harlso is a black and tan dachshund who has a special trick - he balances objects on his head. His people found this talent by accident and they have made many videos of Harlso balancing things.

You will see a sampling in this short video. Harlso balances a little globe, pizza, hamburgers, toys, and even a drink glass that is full.  He even dresses as a little Christmas elf and balances presents!  He looks upward with his big brown eyes as he balances so carefully. He only loses concentration once - for a toy. 

I have never tried to balance anything on my head, although I certainly invite the chance to balance pizza or a hamburger.  We could see how that would go!

Harlso has his own Youtube channel, and you can see a little video about him here:

I hope you enjoy watching Harlso as much as I do. I will be checking out his videos in the future too.

Have a great day!

And he does it with food! Patient as my dog is, she would never stay still for that!

Dear Abby:
We use to have a sheltie that would balance her Milk bones and other things.
Hope you have a great weekend.
Aliceson and Emily

Thanks, friends, for stopping by! Imperturbe, I agree with your dog. If you put food on my head I am eating it! Aliceson, that is very impressive about your Sheltie! I bet she was cute with the Milkbones.
