Favorite Video Friday – A Lab’s Life

February 24, 2017 Leave a comment

I don’t know if I have ever mentioned this before, but before I met Daisy I wasn’t a big fan of Labs. I thought they were too energetic, too hyper, and WAY TOO MUCH for me. I was a Sheltie girl. Shelties were my dogs of choice.

Of course, all my experience with Labs was in a shelter environment, where every dog is stressed, especially the Labs. Imagine having the need to run and play and being confined in a small kennel for almost 24 hours every single day. Wouldn’t you act out and look a little crazy? Yeah. No wonder I had no idea what a Lab could be like.

Labs are not only high energy and in need of exercise, they are also really smart and huge cuddlers. They are clowns, master sniffers and have a personality larger than life. They make you laugh, they make you cry, and they make your life even sweeter. I cannot imagine my life without Daisy, or  without a Lab in the future.

Maybe that’s why today’s Favorite Friday  video resonated with me. It captures the essence of a Lab and wraps it all up in music befitting a one. I hope you will like it. 🙂

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Spring thaw celebration

February 17, 2017 1 comment

This weekend we are going to be experiencing a warm up that is not only unusual, but unexpected. Never before in February can I remember us reaching 60 degrees, but this weekend we will. That means melting snow and ice, lots of time outdoors and soaking up some extra sun. (I’m leaving out the dog poop pick up because that is NOT fun.)

Celebrating a a spring thaw had me looking for a video that would match how we are feeling right now. And, I think I’ve found it.

I hope you find yourself getting into a celebratory mode after watching Buddy, the Golden Retriever. He certainly did it for me. 🙂

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Dogloquialisms

Week 13 - Portrait: High Key #dogwood52 #dogwoodweek13

Cupcake and her teefies

Do you have any dogloquialisms you use to describe your own dog or dog activities? I was watching today’s Favorite Friday video and started wondering if my dogs had some of their own.

What is a dogloquialism you ask?

dog·lo·qui·al·ism: A dog word or phrase that is not formal or literary, typically one used in ordinary or familiar conversation.

Doodad clearly has several of her own. In fact, she has some pretty awesome ones.

The more I thought about it, the more I realized we did have some of our own. Here are a few of them.

Smushyface: That smushed doggie face your dogs get when they wake up from a deep sleep.

Poopsicle: The delicacy also known as frozen poop. (it’s embarrassing to admit that Daisy loves these.)

Teefies: Teeth that peek out when a Sheltie smiles at you.

So how about you? Do you and your dog have some dogloquialisms of your own? I’d love to hear about them.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Alternate Reality

January 27, 2017 2 comments

It’s been some kind of week, hadn’t it?

  • Our Commander in Chief has been gaslighting us (and the world) since last Friday.
  • The weather has been crazy ridiculous across the country (tornadoes, mudslides, record snow, record temperatures globally for the 3rd year in a row).
  • Whole government agencies being dismantled, hobbled and restrained in a day.

It makes one start to wonder if there is another planet they can escape to before it all goes to hell in a hand basket .

Fortunately, there is another world we can escape to, and it’s called Greyhound Land.

This week’s Favorite Video Friday features a dog I am coming to love (through YouTube videos), Doodad. Take a moment to immerse yourself in Doodad’s world.

And if that doesn’t help, there is always this.

And if that doesn’t help, there is always this.
