When A Day Care Puppy Spots Its Owner

You know that moment when you come home, and your dog sees you, and is so happy to see you that she jumps and dances around and gets all excited? Perhaps you experience that euphoria even more if your dog is a puppy. Kelly and Ike always wait at the front door, and start looking out the window when they hear our car pull into the driveway. They can see us through the window, and when we approach they start dancing and wagging. But maybe not quite as excited as this....check out this video of a puppy upon seeing its owner arrive at day care. The pup's joy and excitement is so adorable! It's one of the reasons why sharing our home with a pet is soooooo special.
The video (uploaded by Kevin Clancy) has more than 7 million views.

What a Difference a Few Words can Make

With all the uproar about the superbowl commercial where the adorable puppy falls off the truck and makes it all the way home, only to have the breeder say that she's sold him on GoDaddy....I'm surprised I haven't heard more about a current Time Warner Cable spot.  The mother and the little girl are standing by a fountain, making wishes. The mom wishes for affordable home internet. The little girl wishes for a puppy. In the end, after the mom finds out how to make her wish come true, she decides to make her daughter's wish come true and asks, "Where's the nearest pet store?"



Had the woman asked for the nearest shelter or rescue group, the commercial would have made the cable company's marketing point, while at the same time helping spread the word that wonderful adoptable homeless dogs and puppies are waiting to be rescued before it's too late. It's sad to think that a pet store is the first choice for many, and that many people still aren't aware that pet store puppies come from puppy mills.

What about you--Did you find the ad irresponsible, offensive, or sending the wrong message?
You can also sign a petition to change the ad's wording.

Snake Attack

I hope you weren't too frightened!

Just the right card

My little granddaughter is 4 months old. She gave us this Valentine's Card (okay, with the help of her mom and dad) this weekend. I think she got it right! So does Ike!
