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!

Favorite Video Friday – One Direction Doggie Sing-a-long

April 3, 2015 1 comment

I don’t know about you, but I love to sing. I also love to sing to my dogs (whether they like it or not).

It is pretty rare when I can get any of my dogs to sing, but on occasion, I have gotten Jasper to howl along with me.

The dogs in this video have talent that is beyond me or my dogs. They sing like the professionals they are and they look cute while doing so. Perhaps One Direction could replace their departing band member, Zayn Malik, with his doggie equivalent?

Just a thought. :)

Happy Friday everyone!

One Direction – “One Thing”

Here’s a quick Behind the Scenes one on how they made the video. Just in case you’re interested.

Favorite Video Friday – Doggie bath time fun

March 27, 2015 3 comments

Bath time is always a big event at my house. There are three fluffy dogs, and one not so fluffy dog, who need to get cleaned up. In the past, I would lead them one-by-one into the bathroom to be bathed, but now we have a local doggie daycare that also has a bathing room for dogs.

It is so wonderful to have a raised tub with a sprayer that stretches far enough to get all of your dog. I love that I can leave the towels and loose fur behind and come home with clean doggies.

The only thing I miss is the after bath zoomies. There is nothing more comical than watching Jasper, Cupcake, Daisy and Maggie run around the yard trying to get the presumed stank off their fur. Jasper is a nut. He just goes crazy. Kind of like the dogs in this week’s video. :)

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Waiting for him to come home

March 12, 2015 3 comments

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!
