Favorite Video Friday – Dock Dogs in Slo-Mo

March 24, 2017 10 comments

I love watching dog sports in slow motion. There is just something about watching their fur slowly ruffle in the wind or seeing their skin ripple across their muscles as they run. Whether it be agility, hunting or dock diving, slow motion video shows us more than we ever see with our eyes in the moment.

When that slow motion video is also wonderfully shot and edited, it makes it even more a work of art. That is what I am sharing with you today. Notice how artfully framed this dock diving event is and how well it tells the story.

I wish I had half the skills of the person or persons who created this week’s video.

This week’s Favorite Friday video features dock diving dogs at the 2015 GoPro Mountain games. The GoPro Mountain games are a yearly event held in Colorado that includes dog events, music, running and other sporting events. The next one is June 8-11. Check it out!

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Puppy eating watermelon

I usually like to introduce the weekly Friday video, but today I’m just going to let you watch the cuteness without context or a story. After all, who needs to add context or share a story when there is cuteness like this to share? 🙂

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Lab Heaven

March 10, 2017 3 comments

Many of you may have seen this video making the rounds last week, but I thought I would share it anyways. If you haven’t seen it, you’ll love it, and if you have, you’ll want to watch it again.

I imagine if there is a doggie heaven then this has to be pretty close to what it looks like. I could watch a video stream like this all day long. I swear my blood pressure dropped while watching it for just a few minutes. Peace, love and puppies. 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 – Alternate Reality

January 27, 2017 2 comments

It’s been some kind of week, hadn’t it?

  • Our Commander in Chief has been gaslighting us (and the world) since last Friday.
  • The weather has been crazy ridiculous across the country (tornadoes, mudslides, record snow, record temperatures globally for the 3rd year in a row).
  • Whole government agencies being dismantled, hobbled and restrained in a day.

It makes one start to wonder if there is another planet they can escape to before it all goes to hell in a hand basket .

Fortunately, there is another world we can escape to, and it’s called Greyhound Land.

This week’s Favorite Video Friday features a dog I am coming to love (through YouTube videos), Doodad. Take a moment to immerse yourself in Doodad’s world.

And if that doesn’t help, there is always this.

And if that doesn’t help, there is always this.

Favorite Video Friday – Doodad the Greyhound

January 20, 2017 6 comments

I don’t know if I have ever shared this before, but in addition to being a lover of Shelties and Labs, I am a big lover of Greyhounds.

The first greyhound I ever met was Tater. He was owned by a couple I used to walk with at the dog park. He was elegant and graceful and so very funny. He played that deadpan look so well. (Is that a greyhound thing?)

Tater might have been an older greyhound, but he could still run like the wind. He and his sister, Nadya, who is a Borzoi, made running look like art. I loved watching them. Such beauty and grace.

There is just something about this breed that makes me smile.

I think that is why I fell in love with today’s Favorite Friday video featuring Doodad the Greyhound. If ever there was a dog who inspired smiles it is Doodad. I’ve already watched five videos featuring her and her idiosyncrasies!

I just might have to consider adopting my own Doodad in the future. What a cutie!

Happy Friday everyone. May you have some good quality dog time this weekend.

Favorite Video Friday – Snow Ballerina

January 13, 2017 5 comments

Here comes crazy man Tate!My mother and I were commiserating about the weather last week. “We’d prefer snow over the bitter cold,’ we said to each other, and then, just like magic, we got snow!

Of course, it came during rush hour (3 days in a row) which made the morning commutes messy, but I didn’t really mind because… snow.

Fresh snow covers up the old, dull snow. It makes everything look so fresh and clean again. It’s fluffy and sparkly and looks so magical and fun.

The best part is watching the dogs romp in the fresh snow. They love it so much. Foster Maggie rolls around in it (over and over again), Cupcake lays down in it, and Jasper just runs around jumping and spinning around in it. Even Daisy loves the snow. It brings out the puppy in her.

There is just something about watching a dog experience a fresh snowfall that makes it seem more magical than it looks. That’s why this week’s video struck my fancy. Watching Whinny, the Jack Russell Terrier, run through the snow in slow motion is like watching a ballerina, athleticism and grace all in one dog. It’s a real joy to watch.

I hope you enjoy watching Whinny as much as I did.

Happy Friday everyone!
