(plucky music) Hi, it's me, Nina, from "Sesame Street," and you're listening to "Goodnight, World!" a sleepcast where your friends at "Sesame Street" and Headspace Studios help you get ready for bed. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. (Tango barks) Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Tonight's episode is- "Elmo and Tango (Tango barks) at the Puppy Salon." Hey everyone, it's Nina from "Sesame Street." I'm just finishing up lunch outside Hooper's store. (Elmo giggling) (Tango barking) Oh, and here comes my good friend Elmo, and his puppy Tango. Hi, Nina. Hi, Elmo, and hi to you too, Tango. (Tango barks) Wow, Tango looks so clean and fluffy. That's because Elmo and Tango just went to the puppy salon. Tango had so much fun, right Tango? (Tango barks) Wow, what did Tango get to do at the puppy salon? The doggy stylist gave Tango a nice bubbly bath, but that wasn't even Elmo's favorite part. What was your favorite part, Elmo? At the end of Tango's bath, Elmo got to pick out a ribbon for Tango's collar. They had ribbons in all colors. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet. How sweet. Ooh, I like the red ribbon you picked. Elmo picked red because it matches Elmo's red fur. Oh, that looks great, Elmo. (Tango yips) On the way to the salon, Elmo took Tango to the dog park to play fetch. I bet Tango loved that. Didn't you, Tango? (Tango barks) Yeah, some of Tango's doggy friends were at the dog park, too. She must've been so excited. (Tango barks) Yes, isn't that right, Tango? (Tango pants) (Tango barks) Yeah, I bet you were. (Tango barks) She was. Oh, it was a good thing that Elmo and Tango were going to the puppy salon right after, because Tango got mud all over her paws. (Tango barks) Sounds like a fun, busy day. Yeah, Elmo loves taking Tango to the puppy salon. Elmo wishes he could be a doggy stylist. Elmo thinks that would be so fun. (Elmo giggles) (Tango barks) I can think of a way you can be a doggy stylist. (Tango barks) Really? We can use our imaginations. (harp music) You mean, Elmo can be a doggy stylist, with his own salon? Maybe even Tango and her doggy friends can be there, too. (Tango barks) Yes, claro. We can do all of that in our imaginations. Our imaginations can let us be anything we wanna be. That sounds fun! (Tango barks) (gentle music) Okay, first, before we start imagining, let's do three belly breaths together to slow down, and relax from the day. Okay, Nina. (Tango barks) Good girl, Tango. Okay, Elmo and Tango are ready for some belly breaths. Good. Let's place our hands on our belly, so we can feel our belly move as we breathe. Now take a nice, slow breath in through your nose. (all inhale) Then slowly breathe out through your mouth. (all exhale) Count the belly breaths with me, ready? One belly breath. One belly...
