Video: Because Your Day Needs a Merengue-Dancing Dog

We need to hear from you.

The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important.

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!
