Maggie, our puppy mill rescue, absolutely hates it when anyone makes any gesture that resembles dancing. This includes arm waving, hands clapping happily, or feet or legs moving in a dance like motion. She responds by yelling at us with her most annoyed bark possible. We live in a modern version of the movie Footloose with Maggie as the pastor.
Is someone dancing right now? She definitely has a disapproving (and cute) look on her face.

Our boston terrier hates dancing, too! He tends to attack ankles in response, though.
Omg my dog does that too!
Some dancing styles provoke any being teeth or not to become an ankle biter.
Need a video.
Hmm perhaps Maggie’s parent should have clarified if the dancing was entertaining or all left feet ;o) I agree with Barbara, need a video!
I nearly DIED reading this. Our boston does the exact same thing, and anytime he does that, we call him “John Lithgow”, ala “Footloose”. Incredible to read that another boston owner made the same reference. xx.
We had her twin! We couldn’t even begin to dance and he’d start – love the picture.
