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 – YOYO (the Samoyed) comes home

May 5, 2016 2 comments

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.

Favorite Video Friday – Cavachon Puppy Cuteness

April 29, 2016 3 comments

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!

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!

Favorite Video Friday – An early Christmas present

November 19, 2015 3 comments

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.

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!
