Favorite Video Friday – Doggie Beach Day

July 3, 2015 3 comments

Tomorrow is a big day – July 4th. I am sure many of you are heading to the lake or to the cabin. Or, maybe you’re just planing on a picnic at the park. Either way, I am sure at some point you will be spending a little extra time with your dog.

I like beach days with the dogs (Daisy and Jasper love the water), so I have included two beach day videos for you today. Take your pick.

The first one features an adorable Golden Retriever playing in the water at the beach and is set to music. The second one features a beach with many dogs running and playing. No music, but the waves will put you in a calming trance.

I hope whatever you all are doing this long holiday weekend you are keeping your dogs safe. Keep them leashed if there are fireworks around, or better yet, leave them home when you head out. A missing dog on a holiday weekend is no fun for anyone.

Happy Fourth of July to all of you! (And, Happy Canada Day to all you Canadian fans. Sorry I missed it!)


Seriously, I could listen to those waves all day.

Favorite Video Friday – It’s time for a Fuzzy Animal Cleanse

June 25, 2015 5 comments

With all the bad stuff in the news lately, I thought this week’s Favorite Friday Video might need a little bit of the Fuzzy Animal Cleanse. You know, the F.A.C.


You’ve never heard of the FAC before?

Well, we must remedy that.

First, take a deep breath in and hold it for four seconds. Release your breath slowly counting down from 8 to 1.

Second, kiss your puppers or kitty cat on the head.

Third, hit Play.

Fourth, sit back and relax. You’re about to experience a Fuzzy Animal Cleans.

Sigh. Now didn’t that feel good?

Good. Now go have yourself an awesome Friday and an equally awesome weekend. :)

You and your dog – A twinkling of a moment

June 22, 2015 23 comments

In the life of a dog and owner, there are those few special moments when you just seem to connect on a deeper level.

Maybe you and your dog have had them too – while sitting next to a lazy river or while on a mountain top or out on a long hike through the woods. It’s just you, your dog and mother nature. Or, maybe it’s just the two of you at home, hanging out, reading a book, laying by the fire or snoozing on the couch.

It’s times like these that I think about Tom and Atticus sitting on a hilltop, taking in the view, and wonder if they feel it too. That meeting of the souls. That wordless connection. In that moment, it’s just you and your dog. That’s it.

It’s times like these when I wish my eyelids were a shutter on a camera and I could just click them shut and capture the moment in a picture and hold onto it forever.  The memories we keep in our head are great, but time has a way of blurring the edges and making them, and the emotions behind them, intangible and fleeting. Sometimes a picture can help to bring the moment back by drawing out the memories so they are more concrete and tangible.

One of those special moments came this past weekend. This is me and Daisy, cuddled up together on the couch, after she scooched her way up inch-by-inch, pushing her head under my hand so she could get an ear rub (she loves a good ear rub).  Talk about a soul-connecting, twinkling of an eye moment. This was it.

Luckily for me, I was able to grab my iPhone and capture it. No eyelid camera shutter needed. :)

I will definitely cherish this moment forever.

What about you? Have you ever had a soul-connecting moment with your dog?

Seriously. #Daisy
