Fun little video


What's most neat about this is you can see some neat locomotive behaviour in the dog. Look at the back of the animal - you can clearly see the spinal flexion. The back legs cycle together through each stride cycle, with the front paws showing the staggered fall pattern. I'm not big into biomechanics, but I learnt enough in my undergrad to recognize it.

The video had my grandson(7) rolling on the floor. Then, of course, he had to re-enact the video! Funny, yes, but I loved the post on the oxen. (Now all I am hearing is "Can we please watch that again?")
