Favorite Video Friday – Cavachon Puppy Cuteness

April 29, 2016 2 comments

I’m not a small dog person in general (I generally prefer the medium to large-sized dogs), but back in my pet sitting days there were two sibling dog boarding clients I absolutely adored – Noah and Sophie.

Noah and Sophie were both Cavachons (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Bichon mixes), and just about the most adorable dogs you could imagine. As a breed, they were wonderful little dogs: sweet, well-behaved, easy to train, and terrific cuddlers.

Unfortunately, being a designer dog combo, this breed is likely to be found in great numbers in puppy mills and pet stores. As a result, I have been reluctant to even mention the mix-breed in passing for fear I would be encouraging someone to buy one from a pet store or from a puppy mill breeder.

Fortunately, there are now some reputable breeders popping up and specializing in this mix and as a result, I feel I can openly share how much I love this little breed combination. I am sure not every Cavachon will be as wonderful as Noah and Sophie, but working with the right breeder will increase the likelihood.

This week’s video features the most adorable Cavachon, Boba Fett. I cannot guaranteed the owners of the sweet little dog in this video bought her from a reputable breeder, but I am going to hope that is the case. Either way, he is too cute to not share with you today. I guarantee your heart will be a puddle on the floor before this video is done.:)

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Puppy in Mud

April 8, 2016 6 comments

Last week, I shared 3 muddy dog videos to call out all the fun that spring brings for dogs (and dog owners). I was thinking maybe a bath video was the most likely follow up piece, but then I found this week’s video and I just had to share.

Can you stand one more muddy dog video? This one features a puppy who is making most of the mud hole she finds. How can you resists a puppy in mud anyways?:)

 

Happy Friday everyone!

 

And then, there’s the after mud bath play time.:)

Favorite Video Friday – Dogs in Mud

April 1, 2016 7 comments

It’s spring!

How do I know? The birds are singing, the sun is staying up later at night, the tulips are starting to pop up from the ground… and mud puppy season has begun!

Minnesota has had several rainy days in a row now and the yard (and the dog park)  is a muddy mess. Keeping the dogs and the house clean is going to be a challenge.

But the mud we’re dealing with is NOTHING compared to the mud these dogs are playing in. Have your own muddy puppy? Feel free to share on our Facebook page!

Happy Friday everyone!

At least you can laugh… right?

Oh my!

This last one should really have been set to music. Can you imagine?

Favorite Video Friday – Slovakian dogs in Spring

March 11, 2016 Leave a comment

Ahhhh, Spring! It’s my favorite time of year. It holds the potential of all that is possible – new beginnings, fresh starts, and rejuvenation for the body, mind and soul.

The cardinals have started singing outside my window, Canadian geese and mallards have been winging their way home to Minnesota, and my dogs have been rolling in the snow-free grass and running around with renewed energy. Clearly spring is on the way. (Forget the fact that its is only March 11!)

There is something about spring that gets the dogs smiling. I think that is why this video featuring some of the smiling faces of Slovakian dogs really resonated with me today (a day where the temp is expected to reach 61 degrees).

I dare you not to smile back at these adorable dogs from Slovakia. They are adorable!

Happy spring and happy Friday my friends.

Favorite Video Friday – Boston Terrier vs. Cat? Cat wins.

March 3, 2016 5 comments

I love Boston Terriers. They are such awesome dogs.

One of my favorite dog walking clients was a Boston Terrier named Ozy. He was both funny and silly, and equal parts crazy and smart. He loved to chase balls and grasshoppers. He could leap high into the air and crawl under the tightest space, if it meant he would get a morsel of food in doing so.

He always made my day better because he always made me laugh. I’ve never met a dog breed as funny as the Boston Terrier. I think that’s why this Friday’s video caught my eye. How can you not love a Boston Terrier?:)

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Sharing the after-bath zoomies with a friend

February 25, 2016 8 comments

Every once in a while I come across a video that makes me laugh for a long time, sometimes the video is a well-crafted and edited production, and other times it’s a spontaneous moment caught on film. In the case of this week’s Favorite Friday Video, it’s a little of both.

I love watching Shelties with the after-bath zoomies. They leap, they run, they twist and turn, and then, there is the barking. It’s Sheltie chaos. What makes the dog in this video even funnier is that he/she is joined by a friend. You’ll never guess who it is. Prepare to laugh at this week’s video of fun.

Meet Shelby and Shadow.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Fun in the snow

February 5, 2016 3 comments

On Tuesday, we had a large snowstorm blow through town. It snowed and snowed and snowed and snowed. We got over a foot here at Casa del Mel. Just enough to cover all the dog poop I hadn’t gotten to yet, and enough for the dogs to have a grand ole time playing in the fluffy stuff. They were SO happy to have the fresh snow.

We’ve been enjoying it all week long.

It seemed appropriate to share a little of that snow joy with you today via our favorite Friday video. Meet two Aussies who really know how to have fun in the snow.

Not enough? Then come on up to Minnesota! We’ve got plenty and more is coming!

Happy Friday everyone!
