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 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!

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 – 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 – 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!
