The Dog Days of Summer in its Final Days at the Long Island Game Farm

Wednesday, August 12, 2015

MANORVILLE, NY — There is still time — but not much — to catch David Rosaire and his “One and Only Pekingese Dog Act Featuring Vanna the Baboon” at the Long Island Game Farm — Wildlife Park & Children’s Zoo. This fine-tuned show of stimulating and eye-catching animal tricks and stunts is being presented daily on the Game Farm’s main stage at noon and 3 p.m. until September 7.
Mr. Rosaire and his Pekingese friends recently moved to the United States, performing at many luxurious Las Vegas hotels—such as the MGM Grand and Caesar's Palace. Other major shows have included the Big Apple Circus, the Royal Hanneford Circus, the Circus Tihany in Puerto Rico and Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida. They have also appeared in many major circuses and theaters around the world, including the Boswell-Wilkie Circus in South Africa and the Royal Command Performance for the King of Sweden.
A fifth-generation member of the British circus family, The Rosaires, Mr. Rosaire began performing in circuses at the early age of five. He has had an immense amount of training — from juggling and tumbling, to horsemanship. He took on the role of dog training in order to create his very own unique dog act. Today, Vanna and the Pekingese pups put on an elaborate show — full of jumps, slides and obeying outrageous commands, which many have dubbed as one of the world’s greatest dog acts of all time.
“With summer winding down, we’re urging everyone to visit the Game Farm and see Mr. Rosaire’s unique dog show while there’s still time,” says Melinda Novak, Vice President/Co-Owner, Long Island Game Farm. “This wonderful performance featuring Mr. Rosaire and his talented dogs is sure to be among the children’s fondest memories of summer.”
