Favorite Video Friday – Snow Ballerina

January 13, 2017 1 comment

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!

Favorite Video Friday – Dog games in the snow

January 6, 2017 4 comments

I don’t know about you, but winter tends to generate a little cabin fever in me and the dogs. We’ve been stuck inside for almost a week now and we are going crazy. There is ice everywhere and the temps are in the below zero range (night and day) making walks a little dangerous right now.

It’s a perfect time for dog games. Fortunately, we have a slew of them to play with:

We also play hide and seek games with treats.

But, if we had snow and the temps were a little more welcoming, we’d be doing this. B the Dog seems to love these doggie games and I have a feeling that mine might like something similar.

So, what are you doing to help you and your dog deal with the cabin fever in your house?

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – A Golden Day

December 9, 2016 5 comments

I’m going to make a bold statement here today, Golden Retrievers are God’s little angels. There is something about a Golden that exudes happiness. But more than that, they bring out that happiness in the humans around them.

I think it is their attentiveness to people and their moods, their boundless joy, and ability to express that joy, and their happy, smiling faces that makes them the angels they are.

Wago, the dog in this week’s video, is not exception. I dare you to withhold a smile after watching Wago’s day. He is such a love!

I hope Wago brings you some joy this Friday morning.

Have a great weekend!

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!
