Howling Over Mutts Gone Nuts

   You might remember when I told you about the gorgeous painting our children gave us for Christmas in the Picture Perfect Gift  post. What I didn’t reveal at the time was this was only part of our gift. 
Tickets for Nuts Gone Mutts
   They also gave us tickets to see the hilarious dog comedy show, Mutts Gone Nuts. (We raised some awesome kids!)

   The show was Saturday, March 3 at the Cullen Theater/Wortham Center in Houston. Driving into the city is exciting. There is so much to see and since it was the weekend, traffic wasn’t bad.

   Mutts Gone Nuts has appeared all over the world since beginning in 1985 by the comedy duo Scott and Joan Houghton. The show was filled with incredibly talented rescue “Mutts” along with their trainer Samantha Valle. Jonathan Burns is the comedian that keeps the show going during prop changes. Y’all, we were howling with laughter at him. I had tears running down my face every time he was on stage. If he ever appears at a college or comedy club near you, do not miss him! Of course, if you get the chance to see him in Mutts Gone Nuts, that’s even better. 
   You might be wondering about the dogs when they aren’t working. I was happy to know they are regular house dogs living with the Houghtons. The dogs became part of their act after they began fostering for a local rescue group in their off season. They use practical reward-based training and I saw lots of treats being handed out during the show. It is obvious the dogs love performing.

   We had a wonderful afternoon at the theater and look forward to seeing another show soon. The Mutts Gone Nuts tour includes venues across America. I highly recommend it for a seriously funny good time! Follow the show on Facebook.
