Besides babies, there are few other beings who pluck the heartstrings of the general population like cats and dogs. Gregory Popovich (award-winning star of the Moscow Circus and a champion juggler) knows it and since he cant adopt a bunch of babies for his show, he instead rescues doggies and kitties from shelters and trains them to do silly pet tricks (What, you think animals dont have to earn their keep, too?). Though half the show is taken up by Popovich and his assistants doing a lot of fancy juggling and balancing, there are plenty of dog and cat moments to keep you enthralled. Take the kiddies and support domesticated-pet arts.
