September 12, 2014 4 comments

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!

Favorite Video Friday – A fairy dancing with a dog

August 21, 2014 7 comments

Sometimes you just want to get your inner fairy on, ya know?

It might be the fact that I’ve been listening to a little Smokey Robinson and Jason Mraz this week, but for some reason the thought of dressing up like a fairy and dancing with my dog sounds like fun. Maybe it’s time for a little R and R.

What do you think? Is it strange to want to dance with your dog in a fairy costume (or a butterfly one)? I would bet you’d be hard-pressed to say so after watching these two.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – My Dog Carly

August 14, 2014 6 comments

I don’t know about you, but I like to sing to my dogs.

Most of the time I do it in the car as we make our way to the dog park, but I have been known to sing to them while making dinner or getting ready for work in the morning or while listening to music.

The songs I sing are pretty silly. Little ditties like “I love Daisy. I love Jasper. I love Cuppers. Yes, I love my puppers.” Sometimes my songs meander down strange little paths, losing their tune and going off key. And sometimes, they just end with an abrupt halt as I scramble to find a word that rhymes with puppies or Daisy or Jasper or Cuppers.

I can’t really say that my dogs love me singing to them, but I can confirm that there is no clapping of paws or rolling of the eyes. Perhaps they know I am just singing my love to them?

Maybe it is the fact that I do sing to my dogs that made me to pause at this cute little video and smile, or maybe it was the sweet innocence of the child singing it, but I knew I would be sharing it all with you the minute I saw it.

I apologize up front, it is a bit of an ear worm, but I think you will agree that it is a good one. :)

Happy Friday everyone!

A puppy break for Minneapolis workers

August 1, 2014 5 comments

On Thursday, a friend emailed me to see if I wanted to join her for a walk to go see some puppies on my lunch hour. My Scooby senses tingled. Puppies? Ummmm….YES!!!!

She sent me this article (“Downtown workers take a break to pet puppies.”)talking about the event held the week before and the one my friend and I were planning to attend that day. Dog trainer, Jody Karow from Dog Sense Unleashed, and the staff and foster moms and dads from Safe Hands Rescue, were working together to give workers the chance to escape the workday stress and hang out with some rescue dogs.

It was quite the event. So many people stopped by just to have the chance to meet the dog and cuddle with a puppy. I was happy to reconnect with Jody and get the chance to meet some really great dogs. Here are just a few of the pictures I took of the gathering and the people and dogs we met. Make sure you check out Safe Hands’ video (below) of the fun had by all who came to Peavey Plaza. It will give you a smile.
