I don’t know if I have ever shared this before, but in addition to being a lover of Shelties and Labs, I am a big lover of Greyhounds.
The first greyhound I ever met was Tater. He was owned by a couple I used to walk with at the dog park. He was elegant and graceful and so very funny. He played that deadpan look so well. (Is that a greyhound thing?)
Tater might have been an older greyhound, but he could still run like the wind. He and his sister, Nadya, who is a Borzoi, made running look like art. I loved watching them. Such beauty and grace.
There is just something about this breed that makes me smile.
I think that is why I fell in love with today’s Favorite Friday video featuring Doodad the Greyhound. If ever there was a dog who inspired smiles it is Doodad. I’ve already watched five videos featuring her and her idiosyncrasies!
I just might have to consider adopting my own Doodad in the future. What a cutie!
Happy Friday everyone. May you have some good quality dog time this weekend.
Of course, it came during rush hour (3 days in a row) which made the morning commutes messy, but I didn’t really mind because… snow.
Fresh snow covers up the old, dull snow. It makes everything look so fresh and clean again. It’s fluffy and sparkly and looks so magical and fun.
The best part is watching the dogs romp in the fresh snow. They love it so much. Foster Maggie rolls around in it (over and over again), Cupcake lays down in it, and Jasper just runs around jumping and spinning around in it. Even Daisy loves the snow. It brings out the puppy in her.
There is just something about watching a dog experience a fresh snowfall that makes it seem more magical than it looks. That’s why this week’s video struck my fancy. Watching Whinny, the Jack Russell Terrier, run through the snow in slow motion is like watching a ballerina, athleticism and grace all in one dog. It’s a real joy to watch.
I hope you enjoy watching Whinny as much as I did.
Happy Friday everyone!

I don’t know about you, but winter tends to generate a little cabin fever in me and the dogs. We’ve been stuck inside for almost a week now and we are going crazy. There is ice everywhere and the temps are in the below zero range (night and day) making walks a little dangerous right now.
It’s a perfect time for dog games. Fortunately, we have a slew of them to play with:
We also play hide and seek games with treats.
But, if we had snow and the temps were a little more welcoming, we’d be doing this. B the Dog seems to love these doggie games and I have a feeling that mine might like something similar.
So, what are you doing to help you and your dog deal with the cabin fever in your house?
Happy Friday everyone!
