Favorite Video Friday – Enjoying winter, doggie -style

December 11, 2014 4 comments

Last weekend I took the dogs on a walk through a new park that opened up just a little south of the dog park. It is a wide open space filled with trees and fields and a lake and stream. It has birds and squirrels and rabbits and fox, and all sorts of other critters. There are cabins to rent and trails to hike and panoramic landscapes to be photographed.

Crunching along in the snow along the freshly marked trails, I couldn’t help but feel moved. I could stretch my arms wide in any direction and not touch another human or building. I could breathe. So much space and so much beauty in one place.

I could tell the dogs loved it too. Jasper wanted to explore everything (i doubt he stayed on one side of me for any length of time) and Daisy was sniffing and exploring as much as she could. Cupcake wanted to stop and sniff EVERYTHING. So many new scents and sounds and terrain to be explored.

I think that’s why this week’s video caught my attention. It reminded me of that park and the fun that can be had when hiking through the woods, in the middle of winter.

Looks like fun, doesn’t it?

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – How dogs slide down a hill

November 14, 2014 2 comments

We finally got the first show of the season this week. If you live in the south metro, like we do, then it was more of a dusting with a sprinkling of ice underneath. Those living further north received a whole heap of the pretty white stuff.

That’s the stuff my dogs are dreaming about. The white, fluffy snow that one can romp and play in. They love to roll in it and jump around in it.

The only thing they have not done in snow is slide in it. Ravi, on the other hand, seems to enjoy it. Check him out in this week’s Favorite Friday Video. I can’t tell if I am laughing at his antics or at the laughter he is causing in his humans. Either way, it looks like a lot of fun. 🙂

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – The Young Once, Happy Dogs

December 15, 2011 6 comments

Recently, I was feeling a bit nostalgic for the snowy winter days of my childhood. You know those snowy days that had an almost magical quality to them and made you feel as if the only thing that mattered was the beauty that surrounded you. The adult world was something you weren’t required to be concerned about and snow days were always something to look forward to – sledding all day followed by a good cup of hot cocoa and maybe a nap.

I’m not sure if it was that nostalgia that made me choose this week’s video or if it was the music that accompanied it. Either way, there is a innocence here that appeals to me. These dogs seem so young and without a care in the world. I remember being that way once too. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
