Favorite Video Friday – Let the weekend begin

May 27, 2016 Leave a comment

This week’s video is a celebration of friendship, fun and dogs. It’s also a celebration of being outdoors again… and that is something we are all looking forward to here at Casa del Mel.

It’s hard to believe it is Memorial Day weekend already. We will spending our share of time outside enjoying the beautiful weather. I’ve got some gardening to do, and the dogs want to get out and walk and run and explore and sniff. Just like the Vizslas in this video!

How about you? What will you be doing this weekend?

Happy Friday everyone!


Favorite Video Friday – Sexy Beasts

September 17, 2015 5 comments

When I am out scrounging around on YouTube for a new video to share with you, I find a lot of them that are …

  • cute but have no sound
  • cute and funny, but have too harsh a tune
  • cute, funny, have a good tune, but are poorly shot
  • cute, beautifully shot, and also set to awesome music

But what I have never found before is a video that is cute, beautifully shot, has a great tune AND features A SEXY BEAST (or two!).

Today’s video is the exception. It features two Vizsla brothers, Ollie and Winston, and they are without a doubt, sexy beasts. I dare you to disagree. No really, I dare you. 🙂

Happy Friday everyone!

More pictures from the dog park

I hope you all had a lovely time this past weekend. After receiving a lot of fresh snow this week, we found ourselves spending a lot of time at the dog park this past weekend. I think the dogs know spring is in the offing. They were so full of energy. I thought I would share just a few of the pictures with you today. Happy Monday!

Give it your best shot. What breed mix is Dozer?

After a week of discussing a really serious topic (puppy mills), I thought it might be nice to do a more light-hearted post and ask for a little audience participation. I welcome your input on this one!

About a year ago, my brother adopted a dog from a pitbull rescue group here in Minnesota. Dozer isn’t actually a pitbull (as far as we can tell), but he does have an interesting story. The woman who fostered him had rescued him from a shelter in the south after the shelter manager begged her to take him. It seems that Dozer had been scheduled to put to sleep (i.e., he had run out of time) several times, but the shelter manager kept saving him because he had become really taken with him. He knew that it was only a matter of time before he would have to put him to sleep, so he begged Dozer’s foster mom to please take him, and even though she was there to rescue pitbulls, she did.

Dozer had spent some time with her, but still couldn’t seem to find that perfect family. In fact, she was thinking the cause was lost and she should just adopt him herself, when my brother and sister-in-law came across his picture on Pet Finder. It was love at first sight. Dozer had some behavioral issues to resolve, but a year later I can honestly say he is an awesome dog. My brother and sister-in-law have been amazing pet parents. They took him to basic training and even had him do a little agility (which he loved). It’s been wonderful to see his transformation under their loving care. There’s only one problem. NO ONE can seem to guess what he is – Vizsla? Rhodesian Rideback? Smooth Collie-mix? Hound-mix?

Here’s where you come in. I need your help. I need you dog aficionados to tell me what you think Dozer is mixed with. So, what’s your guess?

Additional details – Dozer is:
– Wicked smart. He can learn a new trick in seconds.
– Prey driven. Don’t ever think of getting between him and a squirrel!
– Tall. Dozer is about the same height as a Greyhound
– Long legged. In fact, he’s all legs.
– Big ears. I love, love, love his ears!

Favorite Video Friday – Vizsla Love

August 25, 2011 8 comments

My friend Karen, over at Doggie Stylish has herself a new Vizsla pup. His name is Dexter, and he is so damn cute I just want to hug him (yes, I know dogs don’t like to be hugged, he just really is that adorable).

I’m kind of a sucker for Vizslas so it doesn’t take much for me to fall in love with one. Our next door neighbor is a Vizsla, Jasper’s dog park friend is a Vizsla and Daisy’s first friend was a Vizsla. So this week I thought I would pay homage to these cute dogs with two videos that demonstrate why they are so irresistible. Enjoy!

First up, Miss Laila, a true Sleeping Beauty. You can follow her on her blog here.

Second up, Nell. She is a true velcro puppy. Despite her owner’s protests, you can tell Miss Nell is adored. She’s pretty cute too.
