Every once in a while I come across a video that makes me laugh for a long time, sometimes the video is a well-crafted and edited production, and other times it’s a spontaneous moment caught on film. In the case of this week’s Favorite Friday Video, it’s a little of both.
I love watching Shelties with the after-bath zoomies. They leap, they run, they twist and turn, and then, there is the barking. It’s Sheltie chaos. What makes the dog in this video even funnier is that he/she is joined by a friend. You’ll never guess who it is. Prepare to laugh at this week’s video of fun.
Meet Shelby and Shadow.
Happy Friday everyone!
This week’s pet video might not be of the typical fare you find here on Fridays, but it made me smile and it warmed the cockles of my heart. After what happened this week in California, I think we could all use a little cockle warming, don’t you?
Let us not forget the beauty in the world, like the love of a good pet or the kindness of strangers. The truth is we rely on their kindness and mercy more than we know. We should make sure to recognize it whenever we find it.
“If you suddenly and unexpectedly feel joy, don’t hesitate. Give in to it. There are plenty of lives and whole towns destroyed or about to be. We are not wise, and not very often kind. And much can never be redeemed. Still life has some possibility left. Perhaps this is its way of fighting back, that sometimes something happened better than all the riches or power in the world. It could be anything, but very likely you notice it in the instant when love begins. Anyway, that’s often the case. Anyway, whatever it is, don’t be afraid of its plenty. Joy is not made to be a crumb. (Don’t Hesitate)”
― Mary Oliver, Swan: Poems and Prose Poems
Happy Friday everyone.
After two long weeks of worrying about mom and praying for her recover, she is finally out of the hospital and now in transitional care helping her to get stronger so she can go home. Yay!
She is somewhat of a miracle woman. Her surgeon, a specialist in gastroenterology, has only seen what she had one other time in his career. It is called a paraesophageal hernia, which is a rarer form of a hiatus hernia. Blood supply was being cut off to her stomach, so immediate surgery was the only option. Because of her age, they were very concerned about her ability to recover, but her daily workouts are what brought her through. She was much stronger than they expected.
Anyways, she is on the road to recovery, so I think it’s a day to celebrate and laugh. Being able to laugh in times of worry and fear is a luxury, so we need to enjoy these moments when we can.
Today’s video is full of silly little puppies and kitties encountering a mirror for the first time. I am sure you can guess what happens, but the giggles and silliness is definitely worth watching. I hope it starts your day off with a smile.
Happy Friday everyone!
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. 🙂
This week’s video features two dogs and a cat patiently waiting for their owner to come home. The cute factor is really high on this one too. There is cuddling and watching and cuddling and sleeping and then even more cuddling.. It is very sweet.
I like to imagine my dogs do the same thing while I am away, but I know the truth is a lot less adorable. I already know that:
- Cupcake perches herself on the bay window ledge and barks viciously at all intruders (i.e., people walking by on the street, squirrels scampering across the lawn to hide their nuts, the mailman dropping off the mail in the mailbox, etc. ). She also destroys the screen on the window closest to her.
- Daisy paces a lot and collects all the Woobies (stuffed animals) and stores them in her kennel.
The only thing I do not know is what Jasper does behind the baby gate in my bedroom. My guess is he does a lot of whining and barking and wishing he were on the other side of the gate, but as a repeat offender in Kong stealing, he is not allowed to mingle with the general population (at least not until I get home).
Clearly the reality is a lot less adorable, but if I could imagine them doing something, it would what is happening in this video. 🙂
Happy Friday everyone!
I am sorry to report that my computer hard drive has died and is in need of replacement. It is in the shop being fixed right now.
I thought perhaps this would hinder my ability to post the Friday video this week, but as luck would have it, I had one already picked out! Here is a cute little commercial that will leave you smiling.
Happy Friday eveyone!
Here is another one if you like the cute kitties!
