Favorite Video Friday – Everyone wants the pink pig

July 21, 2016 2 comments

This week’s favorite Friday video needs no explanation. If you’ve raised children, you’ve experienced it firsthand. If you’ve had more than one dog at a time, you’ve probably seen it as well.

With my dogs, it usually appears when I am paying attention to one particular dog (or when I bring a new squeaky toy home). What is it?

Sibling rivalry: the jealousy, competition and fighting between brothers and sisters.

or, in this case, it might be more appropriately described as…

I want what you have-itis. 

 

Molly is our beautiful heroine. Glenson is our protagonist (or maybe our antagonist?).:)

Glenson wants what Molly’s got, and he’s determined to get it.

Can you guess who wins this battle? Watch, and find out if you’re right.

Happy Friday everyone!

 

Favorite Video Friday – Act like a Corgi

July 1, 2016 Leave a comment

I don’t know about you, but this has been the longest week I can remember. Maybe it’s because I knew there was a vacation at the end of it. Or, maybe it was because the nice weather was calling my name and I couldn’t enjoy it. Or, maybe it’s just because I am bone-assed tired this week.

No matter what the reason, I am grateful that I can now enjoy a wonderful weekend and Independence Day.

This week’s video, featuring the most adorable Corgi puppy named Cosmo, reminded me of what are the most important things to do while on vacation (and in life).

Explore

Run

Play

Be silly

Have fun

Hang out with friends

Splash around in water

Sleep well

LIVE

I hope all of you get the chance to do that and more this weekend.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – The Greatest Golden Retriever Video Ever Made

June 24, 2016 4 comments

I found this week’s favorite Friday video earlier this week and just knew it had to be this week’s pick. It features a Golden Retriever named Elsa.

I wanted a Golden Retriever after watching this video. Elsa has to be the most magnificent Golden I have ever seen. She is a dog who knows how to have fun and isn’t afraid to show it. She jumps, climbs, swims, leaps, dives, runs, and looks amazing while doing it too!

Our doggie video critics, Daisy, Jasper, Cupcake and Maggie gave it a four paws up! You seriously cannot beat that.:)

I hope you enjoy Elsa’s magnificence as much as we did.

Happy last Friday of June everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Puppy SloMo Sprinkler Fun

June 16, 2016 2 comments

We are into full summer mode now. In between the rainy days, we have had some hot ones. Friday is expected to be close to 90 and very humid.

Casa del Mel has more of a pool-loving crowd, but trust me, if my dogs loved sprinklers they would have them, LOTS of them. And, if I had a Go Pro camera that could catch them having as much fun as the dogs in this video, I would be videotaping them.

This week’s Favorite Friday video features some very adorable dogs, named Titan and Tundra, playing in some sprinklers in Arizona. To say they love water might be understatement. They clearly love it.

What is also evident is that they both are amazing acrobats. Holy cow! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a dog flip over water quite like these two! I promise, they will keep you entertained.

Think your dog could keep up with these two?:)

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – It’s summertime with Boomer the Golden

June 9, 2016 Leave a comment

It may not be summer according to the calendar (that would be June 20th), but it’s starting to feel very much like summer here in Minnesota. I would guess the next few days are going to feel closer to July weather than June.

90’s here we come!

So what does that mean at Casa del Mel? Lots to pool time, early morning walks and hanging out in the air-conditioned house.

But, if I had my druthers it would very much look like the fun the puppy in this week’s video is having. Boomer is just about the cutest puppy I have ever seen.

Yes, I know all puppies are cute, but there is something about a Golden Retriever puppy that just makes your heart melt. Don’t you agree?

You can also watch an earlier video of Boomer below. Dang is he adorable!

Happy summer and happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Let the weekend begin

May 27, 2016 Leave a comment

This week’s video is a celebration of friendship, fun and dogs. It’s also a celebration of being outdoors again… and that is something we are all looking forward to here at Casa del Mel.

It’s hard to believe it is Memorial Day weekend already. We will spending our share of time outside enjoying the beautiful weather. I’ve got some gardening to do, and the dogs want to get out and walk and run and explore and sniff. Just like the Vizslas in this video!

How about you? What will you be doing this weekend?

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – A little pool time with Beagles

May 19, 2016 4 comments

For one short day this month, the weather was really hot.

Really hot.

91 degrees hot.

And on that day, we opened the pool.

It was beautiful. Hot weather, cool clean water, a pool, and two dogs looking to jump right in. Ahhh!!!

Daisy and Jasper were cute, but they had nothing on the two Beagles indulging in a little pool time in this week’s Favorite Friday video. I love my Shelties very much, but there’s just something about a Beagle face that makes my heart go pitter-patter. OMD! Irresistible!

Can you make it through without melting?:)

Happy Friday everyone!
