Now that the trick and treating fun is done, it’s time to put away the pumpkins and start planning for Thanksgiving (or if you’re Target, Christmas).
If you’re like many people I know, you’ve got a few pumpkins left over from Halloween that are just hanging around on the front stoop waiting for the trash man to cart them away. I saved my larger (sugar) pumpkins for roasting, but I did stick a few smaller ones on the front step for decoration. The squirrels have been having a hey day with them. Every time I come home, I find them in strange spots around the yard. Their pristine surfaces are now marred with teeth marks.
Yes, it appears squirrels love pumpkins just as much as we do. In fact, they may even love them more than we do (see video #2 below to see what I mean).
I thought this week’s video, featuring an artistic squirrel, was the perfect ending to a candy-filled holiday season. The music is perfectly arranged to accompany his handiwork. I hope you’ll enjoy it.
And if you’re not impressed, perhaps the drunk squirrel video will make your day. This is what happens to a squirrel’s brain on fermented pumpkin. Let this be a warning to you. A drunken squirrel is not a pretty sight. :)
Happy Friday everyone!
I have two videos for you this week. They’re not necessarily funny, but I thought they were cool enough to include in this week’s Favorite Video Friday selection. Enjoy!
The first is called Birds on the Wires
(Unfortunately, the owner of the video chose to prevent embedding the video into a blog, so you will need to click on the link attached below. But, it is so worth watching – go ahead! Click away!)
The second video is The Red-Eared Turtle Cam
It’s a little late here on this Wednesday eve, but I wanted to recognize a very cool internet-based company that has been instrumental in growing my pet sitting business. Today’s Wednesday Winner is Animoto!
Animoto allows users to produce some really cool and unique music videos in a matter of minutes using your very own pictures, video and music. What I love about Animoto is that it allows me to create some really awesome videos for my clients (whose pets stay with me while they are away on vacation) for a really reasonable price. My clients love them and I love sharing them with them!
Clients love to see their pets having fun while they are gone, and it’s a great tribute to their pet that they can keep and share with friends. What better way to show how much fu their pet had while they were away?
But, what’s also awesome about Animoto is that is really, really simple. Upload your photos and video, review, add music and wait for Animoto to produce it in just a few minutes! Have a graduation coming up? Create a video you can share. Took a really cool vacation? Use Animoto’s water background to create a cool video to share with your friends- better than watching a slideshow in someone’s basement! Here are some sample videos for you to check out.
I’ve included a few of my own client videos to show you what I mean. Feel free to check them out.
Then, go to Animoto and sign up! You won’t regret it!
I found this cute video on YouTube of two foxes playing on a trampoline. No sound. No musical background. But, lots of fun. Not to mention a great observation of wild animals interacting with a human invention… the Trampoline. Enjoy!
