Favorite Video Friday – A Lab’s Life

February 24, 2017 1 comment

I don’t know if I have ever mentioned this before, but before I met Daisy I wasn’t a big fan of Labs. I thought they were too energetic, too hyper, and WAY TOO MUCH for me. I was a Sheltie girl. Shelties were my dogs of choice.

Of course, all my experience with Labs was in a shelter environment, where every dog is stressed, especially the Labs. Imagine having the need to run and play and being confined in a small kennel for almost 24 hours every single day. Wouldn’t you act out and look a little crazy? Yeah. No wonder I had no idea what a Lab could be like.

Labs are not only high energy and in need of exercise, they are also really smart and huge cuddlers. They are clowns, master sniffers and have a personality larger than life. They make you laugh, they make you cry, and they make your life even sweeter. I cannot imagine my life without Daisy, or  without a Lab in the future.

Maybe that’s why today’s Favorite Friday  video resonated with me. It captures the essence of a Lab and wraps it all up in music befitting a one. I hope you will like it. 🙂

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Dogloquialisms

Week 13 - Portrait: High Key #dogwood52 #dogwoodweek13

Cupcake and her teefies

Do you have any dogloquialisms you use to describe your own dog or dog activities? I was watching today’s Favorite Friday video and started wondering if my dogs had some of their own.

What is a dogloquialism you ask?

dog·lo·qui·al·ism: A dog word or phrase that is not formal or literary, typically one used in ordinary or familiar conversation.

Doodad clearly has several of her own. In fact, she has some pretty awesome ones.

The more I thought about it, the more I realized we did have some of our own. Here are a few of them.

Smushyface: That smushed doggie face your dogs get when they wake up from a deep sleep.

Poopsicle: The delicacy also known as frozen poop. (it’s embarrassing to admit that Daisy loves these.)

Teefies: Teeth that peek out when a Sheltie smiles at you.

So how about you? Do you and your dog have some dogloquialisms of your own? I’d love to hear about them.

Happy Friday everyone!
