Favorite Video Friday – “Happy” Doggie Style

April 4, 2014 7 comments

I am in love with Pharrell Williams’ song “Happy.” I find myself singing it in the car, in the shower and at work. I even watch the 24-hour happy fest on 24hoursofhappy.com on occasion. What can I say? It makes my feet move.

Maybe that’s why this doggie version of his song was such a hit with me. I bet you’ll be singing it to yourself all day long. :)

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – When commercials make dogs sad

January 31, 2014 3 comments

Did I mention it’s been a long winter yet? It’s enough to make a person feel sad isn’t it?

I’m not depressed , but I think the dog in this video just may be.

I think this is what happens when a dog gets stuck inside the house due to frigid cold temperatures and excessive snow (i.e., snow so deep you can’t even move in it)…

Or, maybe it’s just the commercial on T.V.

What do you think?

Go ahead puppy, sing the song of your people.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – A little taste of summer

January 24, 2014 11 comments

Even though I am taking a break from my blog, that doesn’t mean I can’t share a video or picture now and then, and this week I am feeling a need to share a video. :)

It has been a very cold winter in Minnesota this year. My dogs and I are weary of this cold stuff that keeps us inside most days. I am guessing many Minnesotans can relate at this point. Frigid temps make for long days and nights.

Our school officials are nearly apoplectic at the prospect of having to close MN schools down for two more days. (They have already had to close down three days this winter.) In Minnesota, schools are never closed. NEVER. School officials wring their hands over closing one day much less 5 or 6. Yes. It has been a very cold winter.

I would give anything for a nice sandy beach in the sun, but since that is unlikely any time soon, I’ve been doing the next best thing – watching videos of dogs playing in water in some very sunny places. At least I can pretend I am there, right?

Cheer up my fellow Minnesotans. There’s only 147 days and 11 hours until summer.

Happy Friday!

Favorite Video Friday – Doggie ingenuity or training?

January 10, 2014 11 comments

A dog training friend of mine shared this video and I was blown away. Not by the ingenuity of the dog (although that was impressive), but by the fact that he appears to use a tool to get what he wants. I have always known chimps could use tools to get what they want (like using a reed or stick to stick into an ant hill to get ants), but I figured that dogs were not at that level.

Either I was very wrong, or this dog was very well trained.

The question is which one is it?? What do you think?

Here is this week’s Favorite Friday Video.

Happy Friday everyone!

Life with a dog named Jasper

January 8, 2014 17 comments

Sometimes God gives us a dog to challenge us,
and sometimes he gives us one to make us laugh.
Sometimes he gives you a dog that is adorably cute,
and he melts your heart.

And sometimes he gives you a dog that is all that and more.

That is Jasper.

He makes me laugh but challenges me more than any dog I know.
He is adorably cute, but also a wonderful nursemaid when I am sick.
He is sensitive and pig-headed and smart as a whip.
And here is why I love him.

Jasper believes that…

All balls are meant to be chewed, thrown, savored and chased.

Tennis balls taste better when soaked in a pool or rolled in sand and mud.

Tennis balls can be found everywhere despite the owner’s belief that “there can’t possibly be one here.”

Joggers and bicyclists must be chased.
People dressed up like joggers must be chased.
Walkers wearing anything that might resemble running gear must be followed closely in case they run. Then they must be chased.
Water is fun but only in moderation.

Water must be chased.

Sheep, of course, must be chased.

Anyone in a bathroom is a prisoner and can and will be forced to throw a ball.
Anyone sitting down anywhere, at any time, can be made to play ball.

Sticks are a nice substitute for a ball, if one is not available. They are also fun to chew.

One cannot use the outdoor bathroom facilities when family is there to watch. One must wait until everyone goes back inside again and then ask to be let out to use the facilities in private.

Kongs with good things inside them are good. One stolen from a sibling is even better.
Bones were meant to be stolen. What is caring if not sharing?
Food must not be wasted.

Jasper was licking his chops at the prospect of eating Zuke's treats.

A thorough examination of the food preparation facility must be conducted every morning and evening.
No toy that contains treats inside of it is a deterrent. When all else fails, bang it on the floor. Treats will surely come out.

Costumes provided by the human can be endured if there is food involved.

When all else fails…

Look cute. It works.

Favorite Video Friday – Dog Park Dance

January 3, 2014 13 comments

If you live in Minnesota then you know just how cold it has been. We are going on almost a month of frigid temperatures now. Normally we see this for about a week in January, but it started in December this year and is expected to continue for at least another week.

Monday’s high is supposed to be -14 degrees. No joke. The low? -23 to -25 degrees. That’s why I am focused on getting my dogs out as much as possible over the next two days when temps will be above 10 degrees.

Yesterday, the temperature was 1 degree above zero. It was a heat wave. The dogs couldn’t wait to get to the dog park and get their ya-yas out. This is a video of our first few minutes there. As you can see Jasper is very excited and Cupcake was only to express her happiness vocally. I hope you’ll get a kick out of their antics.

Wishing you a Happy New Year!

Favorite Video Friday – Corgi Cuteness and Quirkiness

December 12, 2013 3 comments

What is it about Corgis that just make you want to smile? I love their cute, quirky, high-octane personalities and their cute little butts. I can’t deny it, I am fascinated by them.

So today I thought I would share two videos of Corgis that I hope will not only make you laugh, but appreciate this smart and endearing breed.

Full credit to our friends at SlimDoggy for finding the 2nd one. It’s awesome. The first? Wll, let’s just say it has been shared a few times. It makes me laugh every time I watch it.

Happy Friday everyone!

And now for #2!

Favorite Video Friday – Sledding Shelties

December 6, 2013 14 comments

I’ve been a little off all week. I’ve been waking up late, missing blog posts and I’ve been clumsy as heck. Truthfully, it’s a miracle that nothing has broken or been destroyed yet this week.

It was inevitable that it would continue on into Favorite Video Friday. Given my mess with breakfast (free breakfast for the dogs) and my rush to get a video posted, I thought I would stick with something short, sweet and simple.

Oh yeah, did I also mention cute?

Happy Friday everyone! (Wishing you a clumsy-free day!)

Favorite Video Friday – Dog Runs a Snow Maze

November 28, 2013 9 comments

Some of you may have already seen this video when I posted it on my Facebook page earlier this week. If so, I apologize. It was just too funny not to share again on Favorite Video Friday.

For those of you have not seen this video yet, prepare to laugh. It is funny and clever and a lot of good fun.

All I can say is I wish I had thought of it first. If we ever get enough snow to try it here, I will definitely be looking at doing it myself.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – A Sheltie’s first snow

November 22, 2013 10 comments

Do you remember how you felt as a kid when that first snowfall came along? You just couldn’t wait to put on your snowsuit and boots just so you could get outside and play in it. At our house, we would sled down the hill out front for hours and then come in for a cup of hot chocolate. Winter was so much fun.

Well, last night we got our first significant snowfall of the year. It wasn’t a lot, but enough to bring back some of those memories. That’s why I selected the video I am sharing with you today.

This video features an adorable Sheltie who is experiencing snow for the very first time. Sooner lives in Florida so he has never seen the white, fluffy stuff before. I think his joy will be catchy. He certainly made me smile. I hope it makes you smile too.

Happy Friday everyone!
