Favorite Video Friday – I love Stella videos

June 23, 2017 Leave a comment

Have you met Stella yet? She’s the internet sensation taking over YouTube!

Stella is a Labrador Retriever who is obviously the apple of her owner’s eye and is completely adorable and funny. I think I’ve watched almost every video she has on YouTube. The best part? There are always more!

I thought I would share two Stella videos with you today – Stella Tries Different Hose Settings and Low Tide Stella.

Isn’t she the cutest goofball you’ve ever seen? 🙂

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Border Collie Fun

June 2, 2017 1 comment

I have a thing for musical videos featuring dogs. I don’t know what it is, but they almost always leave me feeling happier and lighter in spirit. This week’s video is no exception. It features a young 5 month old Border Collie learning new tricks. It’s very sweet and cute.

Which leads me to a question, why do most of these wonderful videos feature Border Collies? Where are all the other dog owners? Why aren’t they making videos like this?

Let me know when you have an answer. I’m off to watch some more musical dog videos. 🙂

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Bulldog funnery

May 19, 2017 1 comment

The one thing I love about dogs is their ability to create fun in almost any situation. They can entertain themselves so easily. Give them a cup and they can toss it in the air or prance around with it in their mouth. Give them a kiddie pool and all sorts of hilarity can ensue. They are the court jesters of our very own castles.

I have heard that Bulldogs are the masters at finding fun. They have imagination and unique ways of finding fun.  Columbus, the dog in this week’s video pick, is no exception. He is adorable and sweet and hilariously entertaining. How can you not love him?

Watch Columbus as he has fun in the rain. I hope you are as entertained as I am by his silliness. It definitely makes him very lovable. 🙂

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Sprinkler ballet

May 5, 2017 1 comment

The weather has finally taken a turn here in Minnesota. Time to hook up the hoses, plant my vegetable seeds, add some new flowers to the beds and mulch the ones already there. I’ve already done the first mow of the lawn (a second one is due this weekend) and started pulling out the garden gear.

The one thing I still have to look forward to is the opening of the pool at Casa del Mel. Jasper and Daisy love that day. They love being able to take a dip during those warm weather days. The pool is quite popular with the dogs (except Cupcake, who absolutely HATES getting wet!).

I have yet to have a dog play underneath the sprinklers, but I imagine it might look something like this week’s favorite Friday video find. There is something about watching a sheltie (or Collie) leaping through the air, with fur flowing, that looks like a ballet production. There is grace, beauty and pure fun going on in this week’s video. I can’t get enough of it. I hope you will enjoy it too. 🙂

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Poppy’s Review

April 28, 2017 7 comments

A couple weeks ago, I shared a video featuring Flow the Trail Dog. It showed a bike rider and his dog, Flow, shredding it up on a mountain. The video was only one of several I found featuring dogs and their bike riders.

The one that made me laugh was the video that featured Poppy, a Staffordshire Bulldog/Pug mix, and her bike rider. In the video, Poppy’s owner reviews her, not the bike. It’s sweet, funny and creative, and Poppy is absolutely adorable. I thought I would share it with you this week.

I hope you will appreciate the humor and love apparent in this video.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – The Great Tennis Ball Chase

April 21, 2017 Leave a comment

If you’ve been following this blog for any significant amount of time, then you know I have a dog who is obsessed with tennis balls. His name is Jasper.

Jasper will chase his tennis balls to the end of the earth. Just when you think he is tired and ready to be done, he brings it to you again so you can throw it just ONE MORE TIME.

Now that we’re in spring, I expect we will be doing a whole lot more ball chasing. That’s why this week’s favorite video is so perfect. It features the most adorable Golden Retriever, named Wilson. I just love him, don’t you?

Happy Friday everyone!

y everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Let Spring begin!

April 14, 2017 Leave a comment

To me, Easter has always signaled the official beginning of spring. Maybe it’s the message of renewal and rebirth, or just the timing of when it occurs (April), but it always feels like Easter is when all the tulips and daffodils start to bloom and the birds start singing their love songs. It’s usually around this time that the buds fall from the trees and fresh new green leaves start to unfurl. Suddenly, everywhere you look there is green!

Spring signals the coming of summer and more time outdoors. It means more hikes, hanging out with our friends (and dogs), camping, gardening, playing ball on the field and in the yard, and swimming. I think that is why I loved this video so much. It was taken last year, but it signals all the things I look forward to each and every spring. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Happy Friday everyone!
