Favorite Video Friday – Take a walk with your dog

August 19, 2016 5 comments

The first few wisps of fall are coming this weekend. Instead of 80’s and 90’s, we’re expecting 70’s and rain. It’s a good reminder that summer is coming to an end.

Late summer brings back-to-schoool shopping, school busses on the road and falling leaves. I love fall. I can’t wait to crunch through those leaves with my dogs.

That is why I wanted to share this week’s video. It’s pre-cursor to what I am most looking forward to this fall.

May you revel in the beauty.

Happy Friday everyone.

Favorite Video Friday – The Next Caped Crusader?

August 11, 2016 2 comments

Last week I shared a video featuring a sweet little, frisbee-catching Chihuahua, named Cleo. I couldn’t help but share one more of her. It’s a short one, but oh so adorable.

I think she just may be our next caped crusader. What do you think?

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Chihuahua Frisbee Dog

August 5, 2016 5 comments

I’m going to admit a pet peeve when it comes to some owners of little dogs. I hate it when they treat them like babies or dress up dolls. I am not applying this to all owners of small dogs, but only to those who treat their small dogs like babies. They drive me nuts.

Just like a big dog, a small dog needs training, daily walks and enrichment (e.g., dog games). They are still a dog and need to be treated respectfully as such.

That’s why I love seeing dogs like Misa Minnie, who does numerous tricks and has an enriched life, and Cleo the Chihuahua,  who runs, chases birds, plays with big dogs, and catches frisbees.

Have you ever seen a frisbee dog who was also a Chihuahua? Well, now you can!

Cleo is totally awesome (some might even say she’s rad!). No seriously. She catches frisbee as good as any big dog. She gets air time, retrieves, and shakes that frisbee with a tenacity reminiscent of a border collie.  She reminds us that she is more than just a cute little dog. She is a dog who loves being a dog. I LOVE her!

I hope you’ll enjoy today’s favorite Friday video. Go Cleo!

Happy Friday everyone!
