Can't pretend I pay too much attention to Animal Planet at the best of times, so many thanks to Mike for tipping me off about this fairly amazing clip.

After about three minutes of the footage, Todd Trainer from Shellac (and Bricklayer Cake, to be fussy) turns up to rather obsessively extol the virtues of his Italian greyhound, Uffizi. Bob Weston and Steve Albini also contribute; the latter substantially less snarky with Animal Planet reporters than he is with most music hacks. The rehearsal footage, plus dog, is priceless.
