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!

Favorite Video Friday – Ski Patrol Dogs of Snowmass

January 29, 2016 2 comments

Minnesota has been a little lacking in snow accumulation this year. We’ve had a lot of hazy, cloudy, warm days and not a whole lot of sun and snow (for those of you in warmer climes, the sun seems to come out more when it gets cold, and that cold comes from having lots of snow to reflect the sun).

Instead, all the snow appears to be going to everyone around us – the west coast and Rocky Mountains are especially getting a lot of snow this year. No doubt the downhill ski business is booming (much to the relief of many a ski business owner).

I think that’s why this week’s video seemed like the right one to share this Friday. It features the ski patrol dogs of Snowmass, Colorado. Gray, Piper and Caleb are well-trained, professional and absolutely adorable. They make me want to pick up skiing just so I can meet them!

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Golden Retriever cuteness

January 22, 2016 5 comments

 

This week’s Favorite Friday Video is all Golden Retriever cuteness. I love puppies (who doesn’t?) and especially Golden Retriever and Lab puppies. I think it’s all that wrinkly skin that they have yet to grow into. They are just so squishy and cuddly cute!

Boomer looks like the perfect little puppy. He’s curious, courageous and fun.

He is everything you need to start your day off right.

I hope this week’s pick will make you smile. Happy Friday!

Favorite Video Friday – A Weimaraner at work

January 8, 2016 6 comments

If there is one thing I love to do, it is watching a dog doing what it was bred to do. Watching Border Collies and Shelties herding sheep is awe-inspiring. Watching a Greyhound or Whippet lure coursing (for fun) is a sight to be seen. Watching a husky with a smile on its face as it leads a sled dog team is happiness at its core.

There is a joy they emanate when they are doing something they are bred to do. But, there is also a finesse and a naturalness to what they are doing that is hard not to appreciate.

I think that’s why I find this video so much fun to watch. This Weimaraner is amazing. Take a look and you’ll see what I mean.

Happy Friday everyone!

I didn’t have a video of my dogs that was as cool as this one, but if I did I would share it. Instead, I thought I would share a two of the cutest dogs wishing you a Happy New Year as only dogs can do.

May 2016 bring you blessings and joy.

Have an awesome Friday and a great start to the year.

Favorite Video Friday – Stella’s Christmas Adventure

December 10, 2015 1 comment

I have loved Stella since watching her very first video. She is just about the most adorable Boston Terrier around (well, except for my former pet sitting client, Ozy).

It’s been a while since I last looked for a new video of her, so I was very surprised to see that one had been posted 3 years ago (what?!?!?!). How did I miss it?

With Christmas only two weeks away, it seemed like the perfect time to share it. If you haven’t seen her other ones, be sure to check them out on her Dad’s Vimeo channel (he’s a filmmaker, so the videos are super good). Stella is sure to make you smile.

Happy Holidays everyone.

Favorite Video Friday – Zoey makes winter look lovely

November 12, 2015 5 comments

Tonight I had to venture outdoors to attend a meeting. The wind was so strong it almost blew me off the road, but worse than that was the bone-chilling cold. It felt like winter.

Usually, I don’t mind winter. I love playing with my dogs in the snow. But this year, we’ve been lulled into thinking that our warm fall would go on forever, and it has, until now. Today was the first chilly reminder that winter is coming.

Maybe if our winters looks as beautiful as this wintry video, featuring the adorable Zoey, we would feel less anxious about the coming cold. I’m willing to participate in a little magical thinking. How about you?

 

Happy Friday everyone!
