Favorite Video Friday – Basset puppy cuteness

September 23, 2016 Leave a comment

I love those live video feeds one sees on earth cams. My favorite one is the grizzly bear live feed at Brooks Falls at Katmai National Park in Alaska. It’s just a live feed of some bears sitting in the river, waiting to catch salmon, but I could watch that one all day long. Maybe it’s the sound of the falls, or the way the bears interact with each other, but there is something about this feed that is mesmerizing.

I know there are a lot of dog feeds too. like live puppy cam on animal planet.

This week’s video feels a lot like a live feed of Basset puppies. It’s only 4 short minutes of pure puppy cuteness, but so worth watching. I love watching them explore their world. They clearly have been well-socialized and feel comfortable navigating and exploring their environment. Whether they are eating tree bark, wrestling with one another or sniffing the air, they are fun to watch. I found myself chuckling a few times too.

I hope you will enjoy watching them as much as I did.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Dog Park in Slow Motion

September 16, 2016 2 comments

This week we’re slowing down an enjoying the dog park filmed in slow motion. The video selection for this week has almost an art film feel to it. It is beautifully shot and focuses on the small intimate moments we often miss at a dog park.

I like it because it features dogs (of course!), but I also like it because it doesn’t make me anxious seeing one group of dogs beating up on another dog, which is often what I see. I also like it because it is just that beautiful to watch.

If it wasn’t so short, I would say get yourself a bowl of popcorn, a glass of wine, and sit back and enjoy.🙂

Happy Friday everyone.

May you have a fantastic weekend.

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 – Doggie supermodels at play

September 2, 2016 2 comments

I don’t know if I have mentioned this before, but I have a fascination with slow motion videos of dogs. I love seeing them play in a pool and watching  the droplets fly off them in slow-mo. I love watching then play and run with other dogs in slow motion too. (in my head, I hear the sound they used to make when the Six-million Dollar Man used to run really, really fast).🙂

I don’t really know what my fascination is with slow motion videos, I just know I love watching them.

This week’s Favorite Friday Video is one of those types of videos. What makes this one stand out is how it is filmed. The dogs look like a bunch of super models running around in nature. No, really, they do! I was totally entranced.

It features just about every kind of dog you could imagine too – hounds, labs, goldens, chihuahuas, terriers, bulldogs, etc. It’s a dog lover’s delight!

I hope you enjoy this visual work of art.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Corgi Pool Party

August 26, 2016 2 comments

According to Dictionary.com, we are beyond the Dog Days of Summer. Officially, it ends on August 11.

Officially.

But, has Dictionary.com met a dog? Every day is a dog day in summer! Don’t believe me?

Just watch these dogs party it up in the pool. There is nothing cuter than little Corgis partying it up in a pool.🙂

Happy Friday everyone!

 

Favorite Video Friday – Take a walk with your dog

August 19, 2016 5 comments

The first few wisps of fall are coming this weekend. Instead of 80’s and 90’s, we’re expecting 70’s and rain. It’s a good reminder that summer is coming to an end.

Late summer brings back-to-schoool shopping, school busses on the road and falling leaves. I love fall. I can’t wait to crunch through those leaves with my dogs.

That is why I wanted to share this week’s video. It’s pre-cursor to what I am most looking forward to this fall.

May you revel in the beauty.

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!
