Favorite Video Friday – It’s time for a Fuzzy Animal Cleanse

June 25, 2015 5 comments

With all the bad stuff in the news lately, I thought this week’s Favorite Friday Video might need a little bit of the Fuzzy Animal Cleanse. You know, the F.A.C.

What?

You’ve never heard of the FAC before?

Well, we must remedy that.

First, take a deep breath in and hold it for four seconds. Release your breath slowly counting down from 8 to 1.

Second, kiss your puppers or kitty cat on the head.

Third, hit Play.

Fourth, sit back and relax. You’re about to experience a Fuzzy Animal Cleans.

Sigh. Now didn’t that feel good?

Good. Now go have yourself an awesome Friday and an equally awesome weekend. :)

 

Favorite Video Friday – For you Dog Dads

My dad

Many people will be celebrating Father’s Day this weekend. I won’t be one of them, but I will be thinking of my dad. He and my Sheltie, Alicia, were pretty close back in the day. She watched over him after he recovered from heart surgery, often sleeping next to him when he took his daily naps, and she accompanied him on walks when he was getting better. He was quite fond of her. I love that she was his companion when he needed one most.

There are a lot of dog dads out there who don’t often get credit for being the awesome dog owners they are. And, they should.

When I think of great dog dads, I not only think of my dad, but also of the  men I have met at my dog park who really showed me the special relationship that exists between a man and his dog, people like Tom and his dog, Compton, and Corky and his dog Roscoe, and Jerry and Brutus, all huge dog lovers and great dog dads.

If you have that special man in your life who cares just as much for his dog as he does his kids, then give him a hug. Dads like him are worth celebrating.

Now, in honor of you dog dads everywhere, here is this week’s Favorite Friday video.

Happy Friday everyone!

And, Happy Father’s Day Dog Dads!

Favorite Video Friday – A Pug Day in the Park

June 12, 2015 4 comments

Today is going to be a glorious day. The sun is out. The ground is drying up from yesterday’s rain. And, we are expecting a 79 degree day.

On top of all that, my workplace is rewarding all of us for our hard work by taking us out on a boat ride along the Mississippi River. Can you say fun? I can hardly wait!

On top of that, my dogs and I will be hitting the dog park later today to enjoy some wooded adventures. Yes, a perfect end to the day.

Given all this outdoor fun, it seemed only fitting that I share a video that featured the same thing.

So, meet Brandy the Pug. She’s cute and sweet and from the look of it, loves walks in the park. I love the way the sun shines down on her and the grass and trees around her. I hope you and your dogs get to enjoy the same thing today.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Go Pro Dog Magic

June 4, 2015 Leave a comment

This weeks Favorite Friday video doesn’t really have a story or a theme or some overwhelmingly cuteness. It just struck my fancy because it was cool to watch.  (Did that sound too boring?)

Let me put it this way, this video contains puppies, dogs, boys and girls and… 52 Go Pro cameras. The editing is phenomenal and the visual still shots are amazing.  You’ve either got to be dedicated, love what you do, or be downright crazy to do what these guys did. 52 cameras! Watch it and you’ll see what I mean.

If you want to see how they did it, watch the second video below. It’s pretty interesting.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Vici, the Whippet, learns new tricks

May 28, 2015 7 comments

A couple of weeks ago I shared the most adorable video of a Whippet named Vici. I was not only impressed with the dogs who greeted her when she first came home, but the owners who brought her home. This week’s featured video is no less impressive.

At four months old, Vici already knows more tricks than all three of my dogs put together. Clearly, Vici lives in a pretty fantastic home. If you liked the first video I shared, then I know you’ll love this one too.

Did you catch the quote at the end? Totally and completely awesome.

BTW – You can follow Vici on her Facebook page.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Vici, the cutest little Whippet puppy

May 14, 2015 10 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!
