Flashback Friday: Sheltie Sings for Popcorn on National Popcorn Day

FROM DAKOTA’S DEN: I was so happy when I saw that today is National Popcorn Day! We are HUGE popcorn fans in our home (we have it 2- 3 times per week). This holiday is the perfect time to share portions of an older blog post, I am sure there are some who haven’t seen this. Hope you enjoy!

Dakota loves nothing more than sharing some popcorn with me (don’t worry, I pop mine myself, the old-fashioned way with the KERNELS, but yes I do it in the microwave and I don’t give him much!) I pop mine in the microwave in a bowl with a lid (with no oil, you can also do it in a brown paper bag). When it comes out, I drizzle it with olive oil and Parmesan cheese.

Being the brilliant Sheltie that Dakota is, he KNOWS when you are talking about POPCORN, even if you SPELL IT! He also knows what the container looks like that I keep it in and will begin losing his mind whenever he sees it!

 

Being the HORRIBLE doggy Mom that I am, I often like to egg Dakota on, (he’s just sooo easy to get worked up!), and that is just what I was doing the other night.

Enjoy this silly video and please excuse my “singing!!” Dakota had actually “sung” with me the day before, and I was trying to get him to do it again, but I wasn’t horribly successful!

Once Dakota had his fill of my annoying him….he “exits stage left!!!!!”

Now go and pop some for yourself and have a great day!!!

2018 In ‘da House!

SNAIL MAIL CARDS:

I am sorry these are hard to see!! And…so ok, Cody received a TON more cards than I did but it’s all good! Maybe if my Mom would help me blog more regularly (instead of every now and then like she has me do now),  people would realize that I am around BOL.  Oh well, what’s a Sheltie to do? I am grateful for all of my cards and I thank you so much!

Have a pawtastic Christmas Eve all!

Barks and licks and love, Dakota 

Holiday Card Update!

Dakota and I would like to thank everyone who has sent us cards via email and snail mail! Oh my we are loving them! I am working hard to get my cards mailed out to those who mailed cards to us (one batch went out Monday, just mailed another batch today! As long as they get there by the New Year it’s all good!)

We are going to be posting the cards we received via email and snail mail on the blog, hopefully somewhere around the 22nd, 23rd or 24th…not sure what date yet, but we WILL post them!

To our international friends, I dropped the ball big time and do not have international stamps, (and don’t want to brave the long lines at the Post Office, I am so sorry!)…so, for you and for anyone who would like them, I am posting a card that Ann Adamus from Zoolatry made for us in 2014 (many of you have received a different card from us via email already, but since Chanukah is over I wanted to post a card that was more “Christmasy.” if you would like to have it)

Thanks so much for the wonderful greetings we have received already, you ALL make us smile!

Barks and licks and love,

Dakota and Caren
