Back and busy...

Okay - Mom says if you want to play, you have to pay. I have been working my canine brain overtime to figure out what that means, but honestly I have no idea. I suppose it might mean that since we had free time and Mom didn't go to work, now she has to work alot to catch up with all the work she didn't do while we were away. Okay I am confused - how about you.

My humans use so many funny words and terms that confuse the heck out of me.

Anyhow, since Mom is busy she told me that we could post my other short video clips. They are kind of grainy and I've told Mom over and over not to chat people's ears off while shooting video - but we are both new at all this technology and have a lot of lessons to learn. We used this old funny video camera my human had, it's called a Mustek DV4000, not exactly high tech but the video is kinda fun.

You will notice in the first video that I am trying to tell my human that I want to go in and get a drink of water - but for some reason she just wouldn't listen.

The second shorter clip in when I bounded into the trees at Gramma's house - tracking down the elusive SQUIRREL! Uncle Harvey has given me the specific duty of chasing away all those pesky squirrels and chimunks that eat all the birdy food. I think Uncle Harvey needs a "Twirl a Squirrel" to cover when I'm not there - we saw the video for that posted over on Pappy's blog awhile back.

Oh and Ruby and Boo asked about Gramma's house - yes, Mollie was camera shy, but she did wander back in eventually. Gramma has a really big yard for us to ramble in. And as for the sliding door - Gramma opened it from the inside. I've talked to Zach (who is really smart Labrador) but he said he can't get it open without a human to help.

Anyhow, we are home to stay for awhile. Both my humans and I are eagerly awaiting the 4th of July. My humans have the whole week off and lots of time on the water planned!!

Dory, you've got the rules all figured out...when Mom points the video camera at you and starts filming, you don't have to listen to ANYTHING she says! A ha ha ha!

Sherman, Penny & Lola

Dory - you are sooooooo obedient with the "sit" routine, just like me!

ha ha ha! very good, love and licks, Marvin xxxxxx

I wanted to post a video but my stupid mom can't figure out how to get the computer to recognize the video camera. She's not to bright. Your mom at least figured that out even if she tries to get you to do stuff while filming.

Hey Dory...
Love those vids!!! And I don't get the pay/play comment either. My Mom and your Mom should get together because my Mom says some pretty confusing things too!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Maggie said...

Tell your mom that she needs to have a cookie in her hand the next time she says "sit"! That will work for her! hehehehe

Love ya lots,

Yeah, humans and their silly "work." Whatever. You want to play you have to play! That's what I say.

sometimes humans dont get it, you didnt want to sit you wanted a drink, DUH, I got it!!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Dory.
It was so clear for me that you wanted to get in the house and no to sit there outside. Patience my friend, our moms not always can understand us!
I hope you enjoy a lot your humans this week and that you have good weather to enjoy the water!
Have a good night

Hi Dory!
I loved your videos. You showed her who's boss in the first video. I hardly ever listen to my Mom, too! I can't believe your Mom asked if you thought she was crazy! It was very polite of you to not answer her with a DUH!!!
Have a great weekend!
Your Sorta Sis Kaos
