Favorite Video Friday – A day at the beach

January 19, 2018 3 comments

I don’t know about you and your dogs, but we’re feeling a little cabin fever here in Minnesota. Between the frigid temperatures and me getting the flu, my dogs and I have not had a lot of outdoor time. No walks at the park. No chasing ball in the yard. Not even a walk in the neighborhood.

We need a vacation. We need warmer temperatures so we can hike in the woods. We need an ocean, a beach and a tennis ball to chase, just like the one featured in this week’s video. If only….. (sigh)

Happy Friday everyone.


Favorite Video Friday – Spring thaw celebration

February 17, 2017 1 comment

This weekend we are going to be experiencing a warm up that is not only unusual, but unexpected. Never before in February can I remember us reaching 60 degrees, but this weekend we will. That means melting snow and ice, lots of time outdoors and soaking up some extra sun. (I’m leaving out the dog poop pick up because that is NOT fun.)

Celebrating a a spring thaw had me looking for a video that would match how we are feeling right now. And, I think I’ve found it.

I hope you find yourself getting into a celebratory mode after watching Buddy, the Golden Retriever. He certainly did it for me. 🙂

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – A little sunny day shimmy with Buddy the Golden Retriever

September 29, 2016 3 comments

Minnesota has been a bit dreary of late. Cold, windy, great and rainy would be great words to sum up the weather here. My dogs loved it, but as their human slave, I did not.

That’s why I was very happy to hear about the expected warm up for this weekend. It’s going to be perfect ball chasing weather, and I just might do the sunny day shimmy, just like Buddy, the sweet Golden Retriever in this week’s Favorite Friday video.

I don’t know how the weather is where you live, but Buddy’s is sure to make you want to get our there and enjoy the day. His enthusiasm and penchant for fun are infectious and adorable.

So how about we get this weekend started? 🙂

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Golden Retriever Beach Day

January 15, 2016 3 comments

After a mostly frigid week of subzero temperatures and windchill, the dogs and I were finally able to get outside and walk last night. It put all of us in a happy place.

Unfortunately, tonight we head back down into the freezer and walks will be few and far between. Let me tell you, that makes for a restless crew at Casa del Mel. Ain’t nobody happy when we’re stuck inside for a week!

I think that’s why I was drawn to this absolutely adorable video made. Sun, sand and the ocean. Who wouldn’t want to be there right now? It’s a great little video and what I love even more than the warm scenery is the warmth and love between this dog and her humans. It will make your heart smile.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Stay warm people!

Happy Friday!

Favorite Video Friday – A truck. A beach. A dog.

This weekend is supposed to be our summer reprise; 80’s every day and lots of sun. As you can imagine, I can hardly wait. I am not anywhere near ready for the cold and snow that will soon be coming our way.

Summer seemed to pass us by this year. If it made a stop here in Minnesota, it was a brief one, and only long enough to be leave a lingering scent of its perfume in the air. It says something when your tomatoes start turning red just a week before October. Something was definitely off this year.

I plan to savor these last few days of summer by taking the dogs to the dog beach along the Mississippi River. Let them splash and play and chase and get their snouts wet. That is what summer is all about,

I suspect that our upcoming trip to the beach had something to do with my video selection this week. The dog in this video has a lot of Jasper in him. If he had the chance, I think Jasper would chase a motorized truck too. Instead, he will be chasing waves.

And, I think that’s good enough.

May you all have a lovely weekend.

Happy Friday!

Favorite Video Friday – Hanging out at the beach with my family

May 23, 2014 4 comments

Memorial Day weekend is dedicated to honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military, but traditionally it has also been a weekend to spend time with family. Many of us will observe the day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings, camping, hanging out at the beach and participating in parades.

For myself, I hope to spend some time with both family and friends (and of course, my dogs). There will be gardening and reading and picture-taking this weekend, but there will also be some time to reflect on those who served or are serving now.

Whatever you are doing this weekend, I hope you get to hang out with your favorite people and just enjoy being with each other.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Epic Corgi Beach Day

May 9, 2013 4 comments

I don’t know about you, but I am SO looking forward to the weekend. It might be a bit cold here in Minnesota, but the weather folks are promising 70’s and 80’s by next week. Do I believe them?

Do I have any choice? It’s either believe them or run into the night screaming and crying “Where is spring? Where is spring?”

In preparation of those wonderful sun-laden, bird-singing, flower-smiling, dog-digging promised days of spring, I thought it only right that I share a video to get us all in the mood.

And what could be better than dogs playing on a beach in California?

Corgis on a beach in California?


Happy Friday everyone!

Ahhhh! Another lovely spring day in Minnesota. Who doesn’t love days like this?


Or this?


So is it really any wonder that I chose this for my video this week? Yeah. I didn’t think so.

Happy Friday everyone!

Send us some sun will ya?

Favorite Video Friday – Madeline and the Crab

May 17, 2012 4 comments

It’s going to be a warm one out here today – 90 degrees!

It’s days like these that make me wish we lived next to the ocean. Water, a sandy beach and my dogs. That sounds like heaven to me. Instead, I had to satisfy myself with a little video featuring a dog having fun at the beach. Oh. Did I mention there is a crab involved? 🙂

Meet Madeline. Looks like she’s having a blast doesn’t she?

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Dog Beach

March 4, 2011 15 comments

It might be the fact that we are expecting another 6-12 inches of snow that has summer on my mind this week (just look at this week’s Wordless Wednesday and you’ll see what I mean!), but this video appealed to me for a few other reasons:

1. I have never seen so many dogs on one beach before.
2. I love watching dogs have fun.
3. The sound of the ocean is enough to make me want to watch the full video over and over again.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I have a feeling I’ll be watching this more than a few times next week.

P.S. Don’t miss the great dog chase at the end.
