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 – 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 – A little sunny day shimmy with Buddy the Golden Retriever

September 29, 2016 3 comments

Minnesota has been a bit dreary of late. Cold, windy, great and rainy would be great words to sum up the weather here. My dogs loved it, but as their human slave, I did not.

That’s why I was very happy to hear about the expected warm up for this weekend. It’s going to be perfect ball chasing weather, and I just might do the sunny day shimmy, just like Buddy, the sweet Golden Retriever in this week’s Favorite Friday video.

I don’t know how the weather is where you live, but Buddy’s is sure to make you want to get our there and enjoy the day. His enthusiasm and penchant for fun are infectious and adorable.

So how about we get this weekend started? 🙂

Happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – The Greatest Golden Retriever Video Ever Made

June 24, 2016 4 comments

I found this week’s favorite Friday video earlier this week and just knew it had to be this week’s pick. It features a Golden Retriever named Elsa.

I wanted a Golden Retriever after watching this video. Elsa has to be the most magnificent Golden I have ever seen. She is a dog who knows how to have fun and isn’t afraid to show it. She jumps, climbs, swims, leaps, dives, runs, and looks amazing while doing it too!

Our doggie video critics, Daisy, Jasper, Cupcake and Maggie gave it a four paws up! You seriously cannot beat that. 🙂

I hope you enjoy Elsa’s magnificence as much as we did.

Happy last Friday of June everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – It’s summertime with Boomer the Golden

June 9, 2016 Leave a comment

It may not be summer according to the calendar (that would be June 20th), but it’s starting to feel very much like summer here in Minnesota. I would guess the next few days are going to feel closer to July weather than June.

90’s here we come!

So what does that mean at Casa del Mel? Lots to pool time, early morning walks and hanging out in the air-conditioned house.

But, if I had my druthers it would very much look like the fun the puppy in this week’s video is having. Boomer is just about the cutest puppy I have ever seen.

Yes, I know all puppies are cute, but there is something about a Golden Retriever puppy that just makes your heart melt. Don’t you agree?

You can also watch an earlier video of Boomer below. Dang is he adorable!

Happy summer and happy Friday everyone!

Favorite Video Friday – Golden Retriever cuteness

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!
