Let me get this right out front: When we’re in the car, Tyler wears a doggie seat belt. And when the car is in motion, Tyler is not permitted to stick his head out the window. (I’ve ridden on enough motorcycles to know the “joy” of bugs splatting my eyes and mouth the way they splat the windshield. I’ve also been eye-witness to a dog jumping out of the window of a moving car–something I wish I could forget!)
A link to this video was sent to me by the filmmaker: Keith Hopkin. I still say “don’t try this at home.” But I also have to say that I think this is a very beautiful video and I think these dogs are having a really good time. I don’t advocate the practice. But I do advocate enjoying these wonderful, happy fuzzy faces.
This is an amazingly silly video done by an incredibly talented musician–with the help of some incredibly talented animals! Maybe you’ve seen it? Or some of his other work? He has a YouTube Channel and a Facebook page.
Best of all, he’s Canadian!!
Andrew Grantham, I salute you!!
Be sure you check out his other videos–you’ll be ROTFL! The man is brilliant!
Less than 48 hours and already Tyler is settling into his new home. I did some catch-up yesterday at my desk, and even though the bed says “Bailey” Tyler had no problem using it!
Tyler relaxes under my desk.
Tyler on duty, ready to answer all your dog-related questions.
Bailey still holds her spot in my heart. But Tyler is making his own space there, too.
I think I’m going to have to break down and buy a new video camera. My Flip cam is just not as friendly as I want it to be, and the quality is not as good as what I can do with my cheap digital camera.
Here’s Tyler’s first Bichon blitz in his new home!
First let me say, Lynn Haigh is charming. Whether she’s bemoaning the fact that she got to Columbus long before her luggage, or telling a room full of people to Be The Change (more about that soon), she is a wonderfully charming woman. With an accent that adds music to her speech (at least to my jaded Yankee ears). And did I mention she’s also rather witty?
I know. I’m gushing. Can’t help it. I get star-struck, and Lynn is most definitely a star of pet-oriented social media. Frankly, she’s brilliant. And did I mention charming?
I really enjoyed putting this video together–in spite of the problems I had with Windows Movie Maker–because I enjoyed listening to Lynn talk. If you’re interested in the (brief) history of the pawpawty, and how Twitter can be an incredible fundraising tool, you will enjoy it too. And maybe learn something!
I caught up with my old buddy, Nicole Daute, and made a new friend, Christina Kwan, this past weekend at BlogPaws 2010. Both are with DogTime Media, and very smart cookies when it comes to blogs and blogging. Here is my interview with them. Enjoy!
Thanks so much to Nicole and Christina for gifting me with their time!
This is a big weekend for us–and by “us” I mean Eukanuba! This weekend many of our Eukanuba team are in Long Beach, California for the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship.
My buddy, Emily, is there covering the show for our new blog Eukanuba Unleashed. I get to stay home and “cover” some of Em’s work! Which is fine with me because I get to immerse myself in some of the Eukanuba-oriented stuff that Emily gets to do.
So first thing this morning, I took the time to catch up on videos that have been posted to the Eukanuba Channel on YouTube. There’s some really wonderful new ones, but I think my favorite is this one:
