knows all about dirty dancing – and so does his dog.
star – and former stripper
! – has taught his pit bull, Lulu, a trick that involves the cue words, "dirty dancing."
In a scene described in the February issue of Details
magazine, Tatum and Lulu, sporting a pink leather collar studded with rhinestones, love to do a little number together, perhaps reminiscent of the final dance
in the 80s film.
"[Lulu] leaps high into his arms," writes author Howie Kahn, "and he thrusts her upward until she's suspended over his head in a balletic lift. Then the two twirl around, poolside, illuminated by twinkle lights."
Tatum, who was photographed for the magazine playing on a beach with Lulu, clearly loves his dog, and so does wife Jenna Dewan Tatum. When she was away on location
last year for the NBC show Playboy Club
, Dewan Tatum would video chat with her husband – and Lulu.
