It’s been a perfect week here in Minnesota. The weather has been beautiful and balmy, and there has been nary a raindrop in sight. I’ve barely seen a cloud, for goodness sake!
All this sunshine has been good for the soul. I know the dogs have loved it.
Everything here is lush and green, and the birds are singing their fool heads off. I LOVE it. It’s hard not to smile with weather like this.
That’s why I wanted weeks’ Favorite Friday Video to be special. I wanted it to reflect the light-hearted happiness we’ve been experiencing all this week.
Love Samoyeds? Love great music? Then, this video should be right up your alley. It features the most adorable puppy in the world, YOYO. OMD is he cute! I guarantee YOYO will leave you smiling as you head out for the day.
Have a beautiful Friday everyone.
I’m not a small dog person in general (I generally prefer the medium to large-sized dogs), but back in my pet sitting days there were two sibling dog boarding clients I absolutely adored – Noah and Sophie.
Noah and Sophie were both Cavachons (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Bichon mixes), and just about the most adorable dogs you could imagine. As a breed, they were wonderful little dogs: sweet, well-behaved, easy to train, and terrific cuddlers.
Unfortunately, being a designer dog combo, this breed is likely to be found in great numbers in puppy mills and pet stores. As a result, I have been reluctant to even mention the mix-breed in passing for fear I would be encouraging someone to buy one from a pet store or from a puppy mill breeder.
Fortunately, there are now some reputable breeders popping up and specializing in this mix and as a result, I feel I can openly share how much I love this little breed combination. I am sure not every Cavachon will be as wonderful as Noah and Sophie, but working with the right breeder will increase the likelihood.
This week’s video features the most adorable Cavachon, Boba Fett. I cannot guaranteed the owners of the sweet little dog in this video bought her from a reputable breeder, but I am going to hope that is the case. Either way, he is too cute to not share with you today. I guarantee your heart will be a puddle on the floor before this video is done.
Happy Friday everyone!
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!
I was planning to save today’s video until December, but after a week of bad news, negativity, hateful words and heightened anxiety, I think that a little puppy love is needed right now. There is nothing that gets the oxytocin flowing more than a wiggling, tail wagging, smiling puppy dog.
My hope is that by sharing this wonderfully sweet video a little early, I can give you a little smile to take with you on this Friday before Thanksgiving. Maybe we can all take a break, take a deep breath and smell the puppy breath.
May the small blessings in life bring you a smile today.
Happy Friday everyone.
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!
After two long weeks of worrying about mom and praying for her recover, she is finally out of the hospital and now in transitional care helping her to get stronger so she can go home. Yay!
She is somewhat of a miracle woman. Her surgeon, a specialist in gastroenterology, has only seen what she had one other time in his career. It is called a paraesophageal hernia, which is a rarer form of a hiatus hernia. Blood supply was being cut off to her stomach, so immediate surgery was the only option. Because of her age, they were very concerned about her ability to recover, but her daily workouts are what brought her through. She was much stronger than they expected.
Anyways, she is on the road to recovery, so I think it’s a day to celebrate and laugh. Being able to laugh in times of worry and fear is a luxury, so we need to enjoy these moments when we can.
Today’s video is full of silly little puppies and kitties encountering a mirror for the first time. I am sure you can guess what happens, but the giggles and silliness is definitely worth watching. I hope it starts your day off with a smile.
Happy Friday everyone!
