Favorite Video Friday – Corgi Pool Party

August 26, 2016 2 comments

According to, we are beyond the Dog Days of Summer. Officially, it ends on August 11.


But, has met a dog? Every day is a dog day in summer! Don’t believe me?

Just watch these dogs party it up in the pool. There is nothing cuter than little Corgis partying it up in a pool. 🙂

Happy Friday everyone!


Favorite Video Friday – Puppy SloMo Sprinkler Fun

June 16, 2016 2 comments

We are into full summer mode now. In between the rainy days, we have had some hot ones. Friday is expected to be close to 90 and very humid.

Casa del Mel has more of a pool-loving crowd, but trust me, if my dogs loved sprinklers they would have them, LOTS of them. And, if I had a Go Pro camera that could catch them having as much fun as the dogs in this video, I would be videotaping them.

This week’s Favorite Friday video features some very adorable dogs, named Titan and Tundra, playing in some sprinklers in Arizona. To say they love water might be understatement. They clearly love it.

What is also evident is that they both are amazing acrobats. Holy cow! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a dog flip over water quite like these two! I promise, they will keep you entertained.

Think your dog could keep up with these two? 🙂

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Titi the diving dog

We’ve been watching all our friends jet off to warm places the last few weeks – Hawaii, Florida, Arizona, Mexico. It makes us want to hop in the car and head south too!

Unfortunately, traveling with four dogs is not only cost prohibitive, but also something I don’t think I could manage while on the road. So instead, we went looking for a cool dog-on-the-beach video we could share with you. And, we found one.

We were all set to share it with you this morning too, but another cool video popped up in our feed and we knew it was the one we wanted to share today. It’s got warm weather, a beach (kind of), amazing looking water, and a VERY cool dog. We hope you like it.

Happy Friday everyone!

(P.S. I’ll post the other video on my Facebook page later today.)

Favorite Video Friday – Golden Retriever Beach Day

January 15, 2016 3 comments

After a mostly frigid week of subzero temperatures and windchill, the dogs and I were finally able to get outside and walk last night. It put all of us in a happy place.

Unfortunately, tonight we head back down into the freezer and walks will be few and far between. Let me tell you, that makes for a restless crew at Casa del Mel. Ain’t nobody happy when we’re stuck inside for a week!

I think that’s why I was drawn to this absolutely adorable video made. Sun, sand and the ocean. Who wouldn’t want to be there right now? It’s a great little video and what I love even more than the warm scenery is the warmth and love between this dog and her humans. It will make your heart smile.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Stay warm people!

Happy Friday!

Favorite Video Friday – Border Collie Ballet

October 16, 2014 2 comments

We’re heading into the last throes of fall here in Minnesota. The leaves are peaking, the bees and mosquitoes have called it a day and the sun is setting earlier and earlier every day.

Perhaps a last look at summer fun is in store before we settle in for the polar vortex (or whatever else we have in store this year). It seems appropriate that we enjoy a little fun in the sun (ballet style) before we put away all the garden hoses. Don’t you think? 🙂

Happy Friday everyone!

Black and White Sunday #85 – Too much fun on a hot day

June 1, 2014 16 comments

Our dog park friend, Millie, loves a good game of chase, especially with her poodle friend. They have the best time every time they see each other at the dog park. It was too bad yesterday was so humid because it meant their fun was short-lived. Millie opted out for a cool down in the water bowl and then in the puddle of water and mud she left behind.

Ahhhh! Another lovely spring day in Minnesota. Who doesn’t love days like this?


Or this?


So is it really any wonder that I chose this for my video this week? Yeah. I didn’t think so.

Happy Friday everyone!

Send us some sun will ya?

Favorite Video Friday – So You Want a Newf?

September 6, 2012 20 comments

This Friday I just had to share a friend’s video of her dog, Abbie.

Abbie is a Newfoundland and one of our dog park buddies. Like all Newfs, Abbie absolutely loves water. So you can imagine what fun she had when she found water in an unusual location. I hope you laugh as much as I did when I saw it. Her mom says it took her 2 hours to wash and dry her.

I am sure that my friend Jen over at My Brown Newfies will so jealous. Just imagine if this had been two Newfies instead of one? 🙂

Happy Friday everyone!
