Favorite Video Friday – Border Collie Ballet

October 16, 2014 2 comments

We’re heading into the last throes of fall here in Minnesota. The leaves are peaking, the bees and mosquitoes have called it a day and the sun is setting earlier and earlier every day.

Perhaps a last look at summer fun is in store before we settle in for the polar vortex (or whatever else we have in store this year). It seems appropriate that we enjoy a little fun in the sun (ballet style) before we put away all the garden hoses. Don’t you think? :)

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Your Best Friend

October 2, 2014 5 comments

I’m just going to admit it. It’s been a very rough week. We have had to say goodbye to so many this week – Dr. Sophia Yin, Dr. Lorie Huston, and now Cleo from Grouch Puppy.

Lots of tears have been shed, stories told and tributes made. It doesn’t take away the pain of their absence, but it does help us to know we are not alone in our grief. How fitting that animals should figure so prominently these lives. Our pets often help us in our most difficult times, don’t they?

This week was a good reminder that we are not an island in this world. Someone will always love us and miss us, whether that be our dogs, our cats, or our humans. We are not invisible, even when we may feel like it.

This week I chose to re-share a video I shared before. I thought it a perfect end to the week. Not sad, but touching. I hope you will like seeing it again.

Happy Friday everyone.

Favorite Video Friday – A truck. A beach. A dog.

September 25, 2014 4 comments

This weekend is supposed to be our summer reprise; 80’s every day and lots of sun. As you can imagine, I can hardly wait. I am not anywhere near ready for the cold and snow that will soon be coming our way.

Summer seemed to pass us by this year. If it made a stop here in Minnesota, it was a brief one, and only long enough to be leave a lingering scent of its perfume in the air. It says something when your tomatoes start turning red just a week before October. Something was definitely off this year.

I plan to savor these last few days of summer by taking the dogs to the dog beach along the Mississippi River. Let them splash and play and chase and get their snouts wet. That is what summer is all about,

I suspect that our upcoming trip to the beach had something to do with my video selection this week. The dog in this video has a lot of Jasper in him. If he had the chance, I think Jasper would chase a motorized truck too. Instead, he will be chasing waves.

And, I think that’s good enough.

May you all have a lovely weekend.

Happy Friday!

Favorite Video Friday – A Doggie Zen Moment

September 18, 2014 2 comments

I’m always sharing these beautiful and awe-inspiring moments of zen on my personal Facebook page. These are usually pictures of great beauty and serenity – a person sitting on a mountain watching the sun set, a chair on the end of a dock overlooking a beautiful lake, etc.

Nothing makes me pause and enjoy the moment more than seeing a sight of beauty and placing myself in the picture – even if it’s only in my mind.

Occasionally, I will also share what I call “Doggie Zen Moments” on my blog’s Facebook page. These are usually pictures that depict what I think a dog might consider a zen moment – sitting on a beach watching the waves roll in, walking beside his best friend, down a dirt path  and into the woods, chasing a squirrel up a tree, etc.

It’s pretty rare that I come across a video that displays a doggie zen moment, but I think this one comes pretty darn close. Don’t you?

Relax.
And, enjoy the moment with your dog.

Happy Friday everyone!

Fall is truly upon us (try 46 degrees!) and so is the new Fall television season.

I bet you can’t guess what I am looking forward to can you? :)

Do you have any TV shows you’re looking forward to watching? Please share!

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – A last hurrah to summer (Doggy Style)

September 5, 2014 10 comments

As we end the first week of September, Minnesota is enjoying its first blast of fall air. I’ll be honest, I don’t mind. I love cool mornings that start in the 50’s and warm up to 70 degrees in the afternoon. It’s my idea of the perfect day (with sun, of course).

But for many of you, seeing summer recede is a sad time of the year. So in honor of those lovely days of summer, here is a last hurrah – doggy style. ;)

Happy Friday everyone!

 

Favorite Video Friday – Puppy wants to play with you kitty

August 29, 2014 5 comments

Most of you already know that I have a fascination with dog behavior and dog body language. I usually love to share a video and identify all the little movements a dog makes in some specific situation and then share my summation of what I think the dog is saying.

Today, however, I am just going to let the video stand for itself (no critique). Just know that it is funny and cute and LOADED with dog (and cat) body language. It’s pretty clear these two are best friends, even if you didn’t know for sure, you would know from the video I link here.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Happy Friday everyone! Enjoy the holiday weekend!
