What's your day missing so far? How about a video of merengue-dancing dog? Okay? Okay!

The dog, named Carrie, is actually headed to Los Angeles this week. She's just been added to the participating talent at the 14th Annual Los Angeles Salsa Congress, a music, dance, and entertainment event happening May 24-27 at the Westin Bonaventure in Downtown.

Concert performances will include GRAMMY®award-winning stars, including: Oscar D’León, Luis Enrique, El Gran Combo, Jenny Colon, Sexteto New Swing y Johnny Polanco, and many more. Like Carrie the salsa-dancing dog!

This talented Golden Retriever is no stranger to the spotlight; this video is from a 2010 appearance on Letterman, and the dancing dog has definitely danced her way into viral fame. WOOF!
