Favorite Video Friday – Enjoying winter, doggie -style

December 11, 2014 4 comments

Last weekend I took the dogs on a walk through a new park that opened up just a little south of the dog park. It is a wide open space filled with trees and fields and a lake and stream. It has birds and squirrels and rabbits and fox, and all sorts of other critters. There are cabins to rent and trails to hike and panoramic landscapes to be photographed.

Crunching along in the snow along the freshly marked trails, I couldn’t help but feel moved. I could stretch my arms wide in any direction and not touch another human or building. I could breathe. So much space and so much beauty in one place.

I could tell the dogs loved it too. Jasper wanted to explore everything (i doubt he stayed on one side of me for any length of time) and Daisy was sniffing and exploring as much as she could. Cupcake wanted to stop and sniff EVERYTHING. So many new scents and sounds and terrain to be explored.

I think that’s why this week’s video caught my attention. It reminded me of that park and the fun that can be had when hiking through the woods, in the middle of winter.

Looks like fun, doesn’t it?

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – #DogsFetchingBallsFail

December 5, 2014 4 comments

This morning's ball playing session with Jasper. #picstitchI always like to joke that Jasper is like the worst Wide Receiver in football. He has a terrible habit of running ahead and not looking back to see where I am throwing a ball. Thus, he often not only misses catching the ball, but he also often misses seeing where it landed. (Luckily, we have cue words that allows me to guide him to the lost ball.)

I think Jasper’s own #dogsfethchingballsfail history is what made me sit up and take notice when I came across this gem. I hope you will get a kick out of it.

Feel free to tweet your own pics of your dogs doing the same thing. You can tweet me directly @melspetpals. I would love to see them. :)

Happy Friday everyone!

 

Favorite Video Friday – The Singing Shepherd

November 28, 2014 7 comments

I don’t know about you, but I like to sing. I sing in my house. I sing while driving in my car. And, I sing to my dogs, wherever we are.

Thankfully, they they do not seem to mind my singing, not even when I make up songs about them.

The only time I was ever joined by a singing dog was when our dear friend, Henry Carl, joined us for a jaunt to the dog park. Unfortunately, I’m not sure I can say with any certainty that it was because he loved my singing. Instead, I suspect he may have been crying out from the pain it brought to his sensitive ears.

Maybe that is what this German Shepherd pup was trying to convey, but his vocals were so impressive I could not help but share. I hope it will bring you a smile.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – You cannot keep a Golden Retriever from food

November 21, 2014 7 comments

I shared this week’s video on my Facebook page about a month or two ago. At that time, it had not been uploaded to YouTube, so I could not share it here (believe me! I tried!).

It doesn’t matter how many times I watch it, I still laugh myself silly. I guarantee you will too. And if you have a Lab or a Golden Retriever or a Beagle, I suspect you will laugh even harder. I doubt my Lab, Daisy, could run the gauntlet and not stop at every station.

Watch and laugh. :)

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – How dogs slide down a hill

November 14, 2014 2 comments

We finally got the first show of the season this week. If you live in the south metro, like we do, then it was more of a dusting with a sprinkling of ice underneath. Those living further north received a whole heap of the pretty white stuff.

That’s the stuff my dogs are dreaming about. The white, fluffy snow that one can romp and play in. They love to roll in it and jump around in it.

The only thing they have not done in snow is slide in it. Ravi, on the other hand, seems to enjoy it. Check him out in this week’s Favorite Friday Video. I can’t tell if I am laughing at his antics or at the laughter he is causing in his humans. Either way, it looks like a lot of fun. :)

Happy Friday everyone!

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.
