Favorite Video Friday – The elves are hard at work

December 2, 2016 1 comment

I can’t believe it’s already December 2nd. Where did the year go? How did we get to December is so quickly?

Well, at least I got the tree up! Will we get our holiday photos done in  time to make cards? That is still an open question. I hope so.

It would help to have some snow to make the holiday spirit shine, but in lieu of that, I’m sharing a very Christmasy video featuring some very cute holiday elves. I’m hoping this will get me into the holiday mood so I can get going on that Christmas shopping.

Tell me, are you done shopping yet? Are all your decorations up?

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Let’s take a break and go to the beach

November 11, 2016 3 comments

I don’t know about you, but this has been a hard week. The anger, sadness, hatred and fear that surrounds us is almost palpable. It’s in the air, like a thick, heavy fog. No matter which way we turn it seems to be there, following us, clinging to us, spewing from us.

On Wednesday, I took a much needed break from the fog and took a walk with my dogs, in nature. I listened to the crunch of leaves beneath my feet, reveled in the cool, fresh air of the evening, and drank in the beauty all around me.

I wish I could have brought all of you with me, but that would have been impossible (jittery iPhone video aside). So instead, I share a video meant to share the joy and fun of dogs (and cat) while on a beach in Australia. I hope it gives you a smile and maybe a laugh or two too.

Thank God it’s Friday. May your weekend be filled with peace and nature.

Favorite Video Friday – In Dogs We Trust

November 4, 2016 1 comment

It’s been a contentious year in the world of politics. We all know that. We’ve felt it. We’ve expressed it. Or, in some cases, we’ve avoided it as much as possible.

There’s been a lot of mean talk and political wrangling across this nation, but for all our disagreements, there is one thing we can all agree on… dogs are awesome and wonderful, and our very best friends.

It turns out that dogs could be the one thing that could reunite us as a nation. It doesn’t matter your beliefs or party affiliation, dogs don’t care. But when we care for dogs, we see each other as friends, not foes, and that’s a good thing.

Happy Friday everyone.

Have a peaceful weekend.

Favorite Video Friday – Adulting is hard sometimes

October 28, 2016 3 comments

Let’s admit it, adulting is hard sometimes. There’s so much more to deal with and worry about: home, health, work,  kids, dogs, etc.

We’ve all had those moments in life when we wished we could whine and have someone commiserate with us. A soothing and understanding voice, a pat of reassurance on the shoulder, a new tennis ball, a calming moment with a friend who can help us deal with the tough moments – sometimes that is all we need.

This week’s video features the cutest little Boxer I have ever seen, and she (Lily) is in need of some love and reassurance to get her through her meltdown. I couldn’t stop watching. Her adorable little face had me from the first droopy-eyed look.

I hope you enjoy Lily’s little meltdown.

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – A bed of leaves for the doggie

Aspen in September 2008

This weekend is going to be a leaf weekend. There will be lots of raking and bagging and mulching going on at Casa del Mel.

The dogs usually seem to enjoy this time of year because they can sit outside and enjoy the cool weather while they watch me work. Jasper likes to drop his ball in the middle of the leaf piles and then wait for me to throw it for him. I suspect a few balls have been bagged up over the years because I could not find them.

The only dog I had who loved to lay in the leaves was my dog Aspen. She would always wait until I raked every thing up and then go lie in the middle of them. It never seemed to bother her that I was bagging the ones all around her. She loved her bed of leaves.

I suspect the dog in this week’s video is very much like Aspen.🙂

Happy Friday everyone! (Happy raking too!)

 

Favorite Video Friday – All you need is a woobie and a comfortable place to sleep

October 7, 2016 2 comments

This week’s Favorite Friday video features a sweet Labrador Retriever, named Stella. I’ve been watching videos of her all week. She is clearly a dog that brings laughter and fun to everything she does. I can’t get enough of her silliness.

So why choose a video that is a little more toned down? Because even when she slows down, Stella brings the funny. Sleepy time requires a little something extra.

In Stella’s case, sometimes all you need is a woobie and a comfortable place to sleep.🙂

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!
