A very clever ad, dog-themed, for St Patrick’s Day.

Barley is more than a pet

These are the introductory words to this video, another excellent one sponsored by the Kleenex brand.

Andi is a little girl with Down’s Syndrome and Barley is her assistance dog who has been trained by Canine Companions for Independence.

I love to share stories about assistance dogs like Barley.  No wonder this video has been called “A Girl’s Best Friend”

White Knuckles – a video using rescue dogs

In this video, the band OK Go is featured with 14 rescue dogs.   The dogs were trained by firm Talented Animals.

On YouTube, you’ll also find videos of the production and behind-the-scenes takes.

Creative and entertaining!

Stair surfing

In my work as a canine massage therapist, I see a lot of older dogs who have trouble navigating stairs.

But, here’s a twist – a short video to show you how one puppy decides to go down stairs.  Have a great week!

If a pug can do it, so can you

Puglet the Pug features in this video to encourage us to do the right thing on Earth Day and every day.    Have a wonderful (and sustainable) week!

Every home needs a Harvey

October is Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog month in the USA.  There are lots of great dogs in shelters all over the world.  I have always felt that you don’t choose a dog, a dog chooses you.

But, in a new twist on shelters helping to match dogs and their owners, check out this cute video showing how Harvey markets himself to prospective adopters.

The ultimate dog tease

This video was sent to me by a customer.  I think it is great and something that so many dog owners can relate to.


Kandu, the two-legged dog

There are special needs dogs and the special people who take care of them.  Today, I’m sharing the story of Kandu, a Jack Russell who was born without his front legs.

Kandu’s initial owner thought that he should be euthanised but a welfare agency put out the call for owners willing to take on a special needs dog and the rest, as they say, is history.    Kandu is fitted with a special cart that allows him to run and play like all other dogs and he even has a special snowboard for winter play.
