Favorite Video Friday – Puppies, Kitties and Mirrors

July 24, 2015 3 comments

After two long weeks of worrying about mom and praying for her recover, she is finally out of the hospital and now in transitional care helping her to get stronger so she can go home. Yay!

She is somewhat of a miracle woman. Her surgeon, a specialist in gastroenterology, has only seen what she had one other time in his career. It is called a paraesophageal hernia, which is a rarer form of a hiatus hernia. Blood supply was being cut off to her stomach, so immediate surgery was the only option. Because of her age, they were very concerned about her ability to recover, but her daily workouts are what brought her through. She was much stronger than they expected.

Anyways, she is on the road to recovery, so I think it’s a day to celebrate and laugh. Being able to laugh in times of worry and fear is a luxury, so we need to enjoy these moments when we can.

Today’s video is full of silly little puppies and kitties encountering a mirror for the first time. I am sure you can guess what happens, but the giggles and silliness is definitely worth watching. I hope it starts your day off with a smile.

 

Happy Friday everyone!

 

Favorite Video Friday – Igor’s Home Away from Home

July 17, 2015 7 comments

This week has been a tough one. My mother went into emergency surgery on Tuesday morning.  Thankfully, she seems to be doing better than even the surgeon expected, but she will be in the hospital for a week and then in recovery for another two to three weeks.

With her being in the hospital, someone had to take her dog, Jake, home to care for him. So, he came home with me. I am glad he and my dogs get along so well. It makes things a little easier.

He was pretty confused and unsure when I first went to pick him up at my mother’s place. He had no idea why my sister and I were there and not my mom. Luckily, his transition at my house has been easy for him and us. I credit the time he spent with me in March, when my mom went on vacation with my sister, for it being a little less stressful for him. I think he enjoys being around other Shelties.

Of course, I’ve also tried to bring a little of his home to my house so he can feel a little more comfortable. I think that’s why today’s video resonated with me. When you need to leave your dog with someone or at a boarding kennel, you want them to feel like they have a bit of you there with them. I think that’s why this week’s video resonated with me so much right now.

This Friday’s video is cute and very sweet. It features a dog, named Igor, and his loving family, who are about to go on a vacation to another country. How they make him feel a little less sad, and a little more comfortable at the kennel he is staying at, is very sweet. I hope you get a smile like I did when you see him with his new friend sharing his special space. It’s adorable.

 

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – GoPro Beagle Party

July 10, 2015 1 comment

I love GoPro videos. They just offer so much when it comes to dogs and shooting at a dog’s level vs. our own. I’m not a big fan of the ones featuring a GoPro mounted on a dog, they’re just way to jiggly, but I love the ones mounted on a stick that can be used to follow a dog around.

I also love the slow motion features of the GoPro videos. You can see so much in a dog’s behavior and body language when you watch them. We miss so much when things are going at normal speed. It’s also good for us to see what they see, from their level.

This is a great GoPro video featuring Beagles, lost of them. It’s a Beagle Party! Who doesn’t love those cute little faces and floppy ears?

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Doggie Beach Day

July 3, 2015 3 comments

Tomorrow is a big day – July 4th. I am sure many of you are heading to the lake or to the cabin. Or, maybe you’re just planing on a picnic at the park. Either way, I am sure at some point you will be spending a little extra time with your dog.

I like beach days with the dogs (Daisy and Jasper love the water), so I have included two beach day videos for you today. Take your pick.

The first one features an adorable Golden Retriever playing in the water at the beach and is set to music. The second one features a beach with many dogs running and playing. No music, but the waves will put you in a calming trance.

I hope whatever you all are doing this long holiday weekend you are keeping your dogs safe. Keep them leashed if there are fireworks around, or better yet, leave them home when you head out. A missing dog on a holiday weekend is no fun for anyone.

Happy Fourth of July to all of you! (And, Happy Canada Day to all you Canadian fans. Sorry I missed it!)

 

Seriously, I could listen to those waves all day.

Favorite Video Friday – For you Dog Dads

My dad

Many people will be celebrating Father’s Day this weekend. I won’t be one of them, but I will be thinking of my dad. He and my Sheltie, Alicia, were pretty close back in the day. She watched over him after he recovered from heart surgery, often sleeping next to him when he took his daily naps, and she accompanied him on walks when he was getting better. He was quite fond of her. I love that she was his companion when he needed one most.

There are a lot of dog dads out there who don’t often get credit for being the awesome dog owners they are. And, they should.

When I think of great dog dads, I not only think of my dad, but also of the  men I have met at my dog park who really showed me the special relationship that exists between a man and his dog, people like Tom and his dog, Compton, and Corky and his dog Roscoe, and Jerry and Brutus, all huge dog lovers and great dog dads.

If you have that special man in your life who cares just as much for his dog as he does his kids, then give him a hug. Dads like him are worth celebrating.

Now, in honor of you dog dads everywhere, here is this week’s Favorite Friday video.

Happy Friday everyone!

And, Happy Father’s Day Dog Dads!

Favorite Video Friday – A Pug Day in the Park

June 12, 2015 4 comments

Today is going to be a glorious day. The sun is out. The ground is drying up from yesterday’s rain. And, we are expecting a 79 degree day.

On top of all that, my workplace is rewarding all of us for our hard work by taking us out on a boat ride along the Mississippi River. Can you say fun? I can hardly wait!

On top of that, my dogs and I will be hitting the dog park later today to enjoy some wooded adventures. Yes, a perfect end to the day.

Given all this outdoor fun, it seemed only fitting that I share a video that featured the same thing.

So, meet Brandy the Pug. She’s cute and sweet and from the look of it, loves walks in the park. I love the way the sun shines down on her and the grass and trees around her. I hope you and your dogs get to enjoy the same thing today.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Go Pro Dog Magic

June 4, 2015 Leave a comment

This weeks Favorite Friday video doesn’t really have a story or a theme or some overwhelmingly cuteness. It just struck my fancy because it was cool to watch.  (Did that sound too boring?)

Let me put it this way, this video contains puppies, dogs, boys and girls and… 52 Go Pro cameras. The editing is phenomenal and the visual still shots are amazing.  You’ve either got to be dedicated, love what you do, or be downright crazy to do what these guys did. 52 cameras! Watch it and you’ll see what I mean.

If you want to see how they did it, watch the second video below. It’s pretty interesting.

Happy Friday everyone!
