The dog constantly messes with us when we are shooting (jumping up to look at what we are doing) and after a couple years, my friend Josh put the cue ball in front of her and the rest has been history. I have personally seen the dog do this too many times to count, but its pretty cool when we arent in the middle of the game. Check it out, you wont be disappointed.

I thought the "Dogs Playing Pool" picture was out of someones imagination. I didn't know about the underground dog pool circuit.

That's good stuff .... this is just the stuff that gets ya on the late night tv shows. After some exposure you can write a book on how to "dog it" when you shoot pool and still be cool.

Much REP for you. That was GREAT!

Do you think Halo would be willing to give me a couple of lessons on masse? I like the way Halo strikes the cue ball on those masse shots.

We are going to take some more footage this week, I will post some of the raw footage as well. She understands more than one would think. She can time when you are going to break (even waits for the pause at the end of the backswing), and also knows which pocket you are shooting for as she will jump up near that pocket to watch the ball go in. Its incredible and she wasnt coaxed to do it. Once my friend josh figured out that she liked it, he started putting the cue ball in front of her, the rest is history. What i find amazing is make or miss, she will actually shoot at an object ball. Crazy stuff.

That is the coolest animal pool video I have ever seen. You should make sure the dog will preform in front of that many people, Before you contact Letterman. It would not be the coolest moment of your life if she get's locked up in front of millions of viewers...Try sending a copy to your local news. Try having them send a reporter, and a real camera crew to film it with lights and stuff. TV set's can scare people into shock. I can't imagine what a dog is thinking having better senses.

The day after the news station airs your dogs video call the highschools,, and or colleges in your area. If your lucky they will have allready seen your dogs perforance the night before. If they did then see if you can set up your table somewhere on campus. This is where to get your dog ready. If it's at all an interest to you.

These are the steps to take before trying to get on Letterman or some huge live performance..They can be a little hairy if your first one is in front of millions it may not go to smoothly. You know want to learn to swim before you jump in the ocean. That kinda thing.

I really liked the masse shot. Very nice video! didn't mean to rant, not trying to tell you how to do anything just kinda rolled of the fingers. I read that post about Letterman and instanly thought wait don't try that yet...

that dog is cuter and smarter than ... I dunno what. A sugar glider with perfect SAT's.

You could definitely set up some basic dead-combo trick shots that'll pocket multiple balls and get halo on TV.

At .49 Halo looks like he is testing out the Dominant Eye Theory.

It's funnier the second and third time you look at it.

Good job and thanks again.

Scritch Halo behind the ears for me. Great Video...I've spred the word via email, so you'll definitely get more views. (edit) I agree about the music...could have been better. How about Thorogood's "bad to the bone"?

When I see her this week, I will totally give her some scratches, but not too many, we dont want her to get a big head. If possible please rate the video for my friend, he is so excited from the comments he has seen on here.

I just hope Halo remembers me when she is famous!!!!

. . . that dog is lining up contact points before he pulls the trigger. i can detect a slight hesitation before the shot.

cool pooch!

This is killer being as I and the owner have purchased cues from Pool Dawg. He is really happy that you guys have taken interest in his pooch. It seems like she is the only real pool playing dog out there.

One note though - Halo is a female.

She does hesitate before she shoots as in the comment before, whats crazy is I have seen her start to shot, hesitate, and reline up the shot. Kind of crazy. More videos to come after this weekend. Thanks for all the support.
