Favorite Video Friday – A pool party just isn’t a pool party without sexy weiner dogs

July 24, 2014 1 comment

After a very wet and cold spring, we are finally hitting the full stride of summer here in Minnesota. Personally? I think we deserve it.

So what goes well with hot summer heat? Why a pool party, of course!

Being this is a dog blog and all, it only makes sense that we would feature some sexy ladies of the four-fitted variety. Welcome the Sexy Ladies Weiner Party (#SLWP). I’ve got to admire someone who can create a pool party video featuring sexy dogs. Pretty cute stuff.

I hope you enjoy the party!

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Dachshund Bahama Vacation

June 26, 2014 2 comments

It’s vacation time at Casa del Mel. We might not be going on any bog trips, but we are certainly going to have some fun!

It seemed like this week’s video was the perfect way to kick things off.


Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Join Sparky in the Celtic Kibble Dance

June 20, 2014 5 comments

Is anyone else saying “Thank God It’s Friday!” today? I know I am. It has been a very trying week at Casa del Mel (even the dogs are saying TGIF!).

The only way to end a week like this is to do a happy dance. Why don’t you join Sparky and I in a little jig? (He’s cute as hell isn’t he?)

C’mon! It will make you feel a whole lot better.

I promise.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – What happens when you have a dog and you do yoga

June 12, 2014 7 comments

I’m not really a “gym” person, but if I could work out at home without interruption, I would love to do so. My sister has been doing her workouts at home, and her dedication and hard work are really starting to show. My fear is that my workouts would end up looking something like the ones featured in this week’s video selection.

You’ve got to admire a woman who can maintain some semblance of zen while a dog is licking her face incessantly or crawling under her and putting his butt up in her face, wagging tail and all.

I might not have the same issues with my dogs as she has with Otis, but I have no doubt that there would be something dropped in front of me, over and over again.

Jasper really does think I was put on this earth to throw his ball for him.

I hope you get a giggle or two as you watch Otis and his mom.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Hanging out at the beach with my family

May 23, 2014 4 comments

Memorial Day weekend is dedicated to honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military, but traditionally it has also been a weekend to spend time with family. Many of us will observe the day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings, camping, hanging out at the beach and participating in parades.

For myself, I hope to spend some time with both family and friends (and of course, my dogs). There will be gardening and reading and picture-taking this weekend, but there will also be some time to reflect on those who served or are serving now.

Whatever you are doing this weekend, I hope you get to hang out with your favorite people and just enjoy being with each other.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Paddle boarding with the dog

May 15, 2014 5 comments

I don’t know how the weather has been where you live, but here in Minnesota we’ve been enjoying something I like to call Sprinter. It’s been way too cold to be spring and yet it is too warm to call it winter. It seems we’re stuck somewhere in between. Sprinter.

I want more warm sunny days and green grass and blooming spring flowers and time at the beach. Instead, we have rain, more rain, clouds (lots of them) and the heat is still on in the house. Perhaps a little sunny video featuring a French Bulldog enjoying a paddle ride in California will warm things up around here.

Chicken (could there be a cuter name?) is the adorable dog along for the ride. Her parents are the paddlers. The music is the sauce holding it all together. I hope it starts your weekend off with a little smile.


Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – A Great Dane puddles onto the floor

May 8, 2014 9 comments

Have you ever had one of those days where you are so tired that you literally have to pour yourself out of bed?

Do you ever find that your skeleton has mysteriously disappeared in the middle of the night and your body is incapable to doing anything but turning into a puddle on the floor?

Yeah. That.

Happy Friday everyone! :)

Favorite Video Friday – A Fox and A Hound

May 1, 2014 16 comments

My friend Mary over at Dancing Dog Blog shared this video on her Facebook page yesterday. I found myself smiling and laughing as I watched these two friends have a grand old time playing with one another. They are truly charming.

Besides the Disney movie, where else can you find a cuter film featuring a fox and hound? Meet Sniffer and Rinni. Don’t they look like best of friends?

Maybe there is a message in this for all of us Homo Sapiens. What do you think?

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Spring and puppies

April 18, 2014 6 comments

Ah spring! We’re all dreaming of it. Green grass, flowers, sun, and listening good music while sitting outdoors enjoying a beer. Doesn’t that sound lovely?

I thin the only thing that could make it a little sweeter is watching a bunch of ropy-poly puppies playing outside on the lawn.

Well, Mr. Winter might not let us enjoy all the other stuff yet, but I can at least bring the puppies. I love Bernese Mountain dogs, don’t you?

Happy Friday everyone!
