Favorite Video Friday – Chihuahua Takedown

September 8, 2016 5 comments

I don’t know about you, but my dogs love stuffed animals. Daisy loves them because she is a Lab and carrying something in her mouth (especially when she is excited or happy) is almost instinctive. It’s not unusual to find 10-12 of these toys in her kennel at any one time.

Jasper and Cupcake love them because the usually have a squeaker in them, and who doesn’t love a squeaker? Cupcake used to run around the house squeaking her stuffie over and over again. Jasper loves to find the squeaker, and eradicate it from t’s unsuspecting host. Once it has been removed, he must remove the stuffing to make sure there are no other stray squeakers running around.

But, none of my 3 dogs have ever taken a stuffie and whipped it around, trying to beat the beast to death. I don’t know why, but it has never happened at Casa del Mel.

I think that’s partly why I was so fascinated by this week’s video selection. It features an adorable Chihuahua named, Poochino, taking on two stuffies, mano y mano. The video is cleverly edited, filmed in slow-motion and has some funny sound effects. I loved watching “Poochino” attack his toys with playful enthusiasm. It’s hard not to love a Chihuahua demonstrating a serious stuffie takedown. I hope you agree.

Happy Friday everyone! 🙂

Favorite Video Friday – The Next Caped Crusader?

August 11, 2016 2 comments

Last week I shared a video featuring a sweet little, frisbee-catching Chihuahua, named Cleo. I couldn’t help but share one more of her. It’s a short one, but oh so adorable.

I think she just may be our next caped crusader. What do you think?

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Chihuahua Frisbee Dog

August 5, 2016 6 comments

I’m going to admit a pet peeve when it comes to some owners of little dogs. I hate it when they treat them like babies or dress up dolls. I am not applying this to all owners of small dogs, but only to those who treat their small dogs like babies. They drive me nuts.

Just like a big dog, a small dog needs training, daily walks and enrichment (e.g., dog games). They are still a dog and need to be treated respectfully as such.

That’s why I love seeing dogs like Misa Minnie, who does numerous tricks and has an enriched life, and Cleo the Chihuahua,  who runs, chases birds, plays with big dogs, and catches frisbees.

Have you ever seen a frisbee dog who was also a Chihuahua? Well, now you can!

Cleo is totally awesome (some might even say she’s rad!). No seriously. She catches frisbee as good as any big dog. She gets air time, retrieves, and shakes that frisbee with a tenacity reminiscent of a border collie.  She reminds us that she is more than just a cute little dog. She is a dog who loves being a dog. I LOVE her!

I hope you’ll enjoy today’s favorite Friday video. Go Cleo!

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Dive Bombing Chihuahua

February 14, 2013 8 comments

I don’t know about you, but for me, this was a VERY long week. It was a work week filled with long days and juggling lots of different balls. All day yesterday I kept thinking it was Friday!

Wishful thinking? Probably so.

That’s why I needed a video that would make me laugh today. This one definitely did the trick! It features the fastest little dog, the best music, and the perfect sound effect for this little dynamo. You’ll have to watch all the way through to the end to actually get a good glimpse of “Speedy Gonzales”, but the wait is worth it. It definitely made me laugh!

I hope it will start your day off with a smile, and hopefully, a laugh too.

Happy Friday everyone!
