Favorite Video Friday – Vici, the cutest little Whippet puppy

May 14, 2015 9 comments

Today’s Favorite Friday video will take your heart, melt it, and leave it in a little puddle on your floor. No seriously. It will.

It’s not just the cute little puppy that grabs your heart.  The two resident dogs will totally capture it too. They were so amazing with little Vici. They played with her, treated her gently and showed her the ropes.

Watching a Border Collie and a Malinois, play with this puppy was a real treat. You do not see breeds like this every day, and to see them play so gently with her tells you a lot about the owner. Border Collies and Malinois’ are extremely intelligent, high energy dogs, that are driven to do a job. They need a handler who understands their needs. The fact that they look so well-adjusted tells you that they have the very best kind of dog owner. I’d say this puppy is going to thrive.

I hope you will love this video as much as I did.

What a beautiful set of dogs.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Dachshund vs. Crab , Part Two

May 7, 2015 1 comment

I still remember the first time I saw the video of Madeline the Dachshund playing with a crab on the beach. I was absolutely entranced. It was adorable. It was squeal worthy. And, the music made it even more so.

It was hard not to watch it more than once (I think I watched it at least 10 times!).

Well, imagine my surprise when I came across a second video of Madeline and a crab! Oooo la la la la!

Of course, I watched it immediately. It was cute, adorable and sweet.

And now, I am sharing it with you. :)

 

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Dachshund showers feel SO good.

I honestly have no words for this week’s video. I saw it earlier in the week and laughed. There was no question that I would be sharing it all with you today.

It’s sweet and cute, and something I think we can all relate to as humans.

I wish my dogs loved showers as much as this Dachshund. :)

 

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Doggie Faces

April 24, 2015 1 comment

I have a fascination with dog faces. I love their cute little noses and long little snouts. I love their soft brown (or blue) eyes and the way they look at you with adoration or curiosity or confusion. I love how some of them have bangs or long, flowing strands of fur that surround their face. I love that some have cute little tufts of hair on their noses. I love their coloring and whorls and speckles. But, mostly I just love them because they are sweet and adorable and overwhelmingly cute.

This week’s video is a deep dive into doggie faces. If you love them as much as I do then this video is for you.  So many dogs with so many different facial shapes, coloring and looks, and every one of them cute as a button.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – One beach + 234 Corgis = Fundorable!

April 16, 2015 2 comments

Last weekend, Minnesota Sheltie Rescue celebrated all things Sheltie at their annual Sheltie Reunion. I saw more Shelties than I could count – blue merles, tris, bi-blacks, sables, chestnut sables, black, white, etc. It was Sheltie heaven for us humans and treat heaven for the Shelties. As it so happens, last weekend was also the annual So Cal Corgi Beach Day.  Imagine 634 Corgis running along a beach in Southern California. Yeah. Beyond cool. Watching this week’s video of the event made me wonder what a Sheltie Beach Day would be like. I suspect there would be lots of herding and barking and chasing one another down the beach. No doubt there would be some wave jumping and water herding (Jasper does this) too. Doesn’t that sound like fun? I’m voting for a Sheltie Beach Day in Minnesota. Anyone got any suggestions on a location where we could make this happen? Let me know! In the meantime… Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – The Doggie Alarm Clock

April 10, 2015 10 comments

Cute Maggie. #puppymilldog #fosterdog #SheltieI have decided that it is time for Foster Maggie and I to have a talk. It seems she has appointed herself as my doggie alarm clock where one was not needed. I’m not sure why she felt that she needed to fill this role, but I am hoping that our discussion will educate her on the benefits of sleeping in (or hitting snooze).

Life before Maggie was peaceful and slumber-rific. My dogs never felt the need to wake me up in the morning. They usually just waited until I got up. They might have paced between the living room and my bedroom before, but they never barked or woke me up. Weekends were the best, they let me sleep in.

But now, we have Maggie and she does not have a snooze button. Nor does she understand weekends or the benefits of sleeping in.

I think that is why this week’s video resonated with me so much today. I hope you do not have a doggie alarm clock, but if you do, there are many of us who can relate. :)

Happy Friday everyone!
