Favorite Video Friday – Getting your ya-yas out

October 5, 2017 1 comment

Don’t you ever feel like you just have to get it all out?

Maybe you’ve had a bad day. Or, maybe you worked really hard all week and just need to get your ya-yas out. Or maybe, you’ve felt cooped up all week and just really need to let loose.

Either way, when that moment comes and you want to carry on and shake it all off? Do it.

Not sure how to do it? Watch Candy the English Bulldog. She’s got the right idea. 🙂

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Doberman in Slo Mo

September 22, 2017 2 comments

I don’t really know why I love today’s video that much.

Maybe it’s the feeling of freedom I get when watching this dog run and play.

Or, maybe it’s the wide open space and empty beach that appeals to me.

Or, maybe it’s seeing a Doberman in its natural state (no docked tail or ears) that makes it appealing.

Either way, this video is worth watching just for the happiness it evokes. I hope you enjoy it.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – The last hurrah to summer

September 1, 2017 1 comment

In Minnesota, summer begins on Memorial Day and ends on Labor Day.

I don’t mean that we ignore the technical dates that signify the beginning and end of summer (i.e., June 21 for the summer solstice and September 22 for the fall equinox), but we consider the start and end of summer to be when our lakes officially open and close (i.e., Memorial Day and  Labor Day).

So if we go by Minnesota time standards, summer ends this long Labor Day weekend. Our magnificent and highly-attended state fair ends on Labor Day, most kids head back to school the day after Labor Day, and the outdoor pools and lakes close on Monday.

That’s why so many of us are taking the time to get in that last hurrah. That last moment to camp before the kids get back to school, or to hit the fair before it ends, or to get in that last day at the lake before it closes down.

Dogs and owners will likely be taking advantage of this time too. We all want to give them that last chance to go for a swim before the cold weather hits (although technically, that could be several weeks away). There is even a local business who opens their pool to dogs at the end of the season . It’s the last hurrah of summer.

That’s why I thought it appropriate we celebrate this Labor Day weekend with a little pool time. The last hurrah to summer.

Have a happy and safe Labor Day everyone! 🙂

Favorite Video Friday – I love Stella videos

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 2 comments

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!
