Favorite Video Friday – A bed of leaves for the doggie

Aspen in September 2008

This weekend is going to be a leaf weekend. There will be lots of raking and bagging and mulching going on at Casa del Mel.

The dogs usually seem to enjoy this time of year because they can sit outside and enjoy the cool weather while they watch me work. Jasper likes to drop his ball in the middle of the leaf piles and then wait for me to throw it for him. I suspect a few balls have been bagged up over the years because I could not find them.

The only dog I had who loved to lay in the leaves was my dog Aspen. She would always wait until I raked every thing up and then go lie in the middle of them. It never seemed to bother her that I was bagging the ones all around her. She loved her bed of leaves.

I suspect the dog in this week’s video is very much like Aspen.🙂

Happy Friday everyone! (Happy raking too!)

Favorite Video Friday – Wake up to the paw

October 14, 2016 4 comments

Up until recently, my dogs never ever woke me up. They would sleep when I slept and rise when I awoke.

That all changed when Jasper discovered (through a doggy friend) that he had the power to wake me up by just jumping up on the bed and pawing me. Now, he does it almost every day (much to my chagrin).

Part of me misses the days when no one woke me up, but yesterday, when my alarm did not work, I was grateful for it.
So, maybe there is an upside after all.

This week’s Favorite Friday videos is dedicated to all you pet owners who are woken up by a meow, a bark or a paw to the face. Wake up! Time to get going!

Happy Friday everyone.🙂

Favorite Video Friday – All you need is a woobie and a comfortable place to sleep

October 7, 2016 2 comments

This week’s Favorite Friday video features a sweet Labrador Retriever, named Stella. I’ve been watching videos of her all week. She is clearly a dog that brings laughter and fun to everything she does. I can’t get enough of her silliness.

So why choose a video that is a little more toned down? Because even when she slows down, Stella brings the funny. Sleepy time requires a little something extra.

In Stella’s case, sometimes all you need is a woobie and a comfortable place to sleep.🙂

Happy Friday everyone!
