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 – Slow Motion Dog Frisbee

August 25, 2017 1 comment

I may have mentioned it before, but I love slow motion videos, especially slow motion dog videos. I came across today’s Favorite Friday video selection a week ago and have watched it a few times now. It is so cool to see a dog catching frisbee in slow motion, but what makes this one especially fascinating is that it is REALLY slowed down. You can see every twist of the body and every movement of the paws. It really is beauty in motion.

I don’t know the dog’s name, but man is he/she cool! I wonder if he/she competes? Maybe so. 🙂

I hope you enjoy the video as much as I did.

Happy Friday everyone!
