FROM DAKOTA’S DEN: I was so happy when I saw that today was National Popcorn Day! We are HUGE popcorn fans in our home (we have it probably 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!!!
May ALL of your holiday wishes come true!!!!! Ours did because we are blessed to know each and EVERY ONE of you!!!! We love you all !! Now…get to bed early for Santa!
Oh my!!!!! With my being sick since last Thursday, I NEARLY FORGOT that today is Dakota’s NINTH GOTCHA DAY! I was sitting here doing work, I looked to my side and saw my boy who “guards” me while I work. Because I don’t have time to come up with something new, I went through some old posts and found this one that I have edited with some different photos, some of the text originally appeared in 2013.
HAPPY, HAPPY GOTCHA DAY DAKOTA!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!!!
TODAY IS DAKOTA’S 9TH GOTCHA DAY!!!
Dakota was the answer to my childhood dream
of having my own Sheltie
When I was 5, I met a Sheltie
that lived across the street who was named “Dandy”
that was it, I was hooked.
I used to only play with the kids that lived in that house
because of their Sheltie!!
At the time, I was obsessed with Lassie
and in my 5-year old mind
the Sheltie that I had fallen in love with,
was a mini “Lassie”
I later learned that Shelties
aren’t related to Collies at all
but are their own marvelous breed!
HAPPY HAPPY GOTCHA DAY
TO OUR PRECIOUS DAKOTA!!
DADDY, CODY AND I LOVE YOU
“ALWAYS AND ALWAYS”
This video was not made by me
but it features one of my favorite Phil Collins songs
and celebrates one of the most wonderful,
sensitive, silly, loving and crazy breeds
