Tickle Paw Tuesday can stretch into the entire week as you prepare for Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl IX by watching their live puppy cam. Don’t worry, they have a kitten cam, too. Seriously, if this doesn’t keep your heart beating to a happier beat, you might want to get that ticker checked.
When people talk about the “big game” to us, we simply assume they mean the Puppy Bowl. Further talks break down when we start discussing the kitten half-time show and hedgehog cheerleaders, and both parties suddenly realize the other isn’t participating in the same conversation.
See ya in the virtual bleachers Sunday, February 3, 2012, for Puppy Bowl IX on Animal Planet from 3:00-5:00pm ET. Checkout the site and learn the secrets behind the Puppy Bowl game.
For the third Tuesday of the new year, we offer you a Tickle Paw Tuesday installment that reminds us all how very blessed we are to share our lives with our companion animals and imparts some life wisdom taught by guinea pigs. For those with guinea pigs, I’ll think you’ll find the other videos by Momo Hsieh to be very beneficial and educational. Those are some very well loved and cared for pigs!
Have a wonderful Tuesday!
Our “Tickle Paw Tuesday” selection made us want to hop in a kayak and float along with a sweet copilot like Chance, the dog who is featured in this video. Chance looks safe (with this life jacket and leash) and content. The river is beautiful too, but gotta say, Chance steals the show. All the videos from timvid are interesting and beautiful, we encourage you to check them out. We especially like this hummingbird video and the Wild Box Turtle Eating Strawberries video.
Hope your Tuesday is beautiful!
Our featured Tickle Paw Tuesday video of the week should help give us all a little perspective. Here are some lessons we can take away from the sweet video:
- Try overcoming your problems instead of running circles around them.
- Set your problems to music. “You Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer is a good personal anthem when you are feeling especially vulnerable.
- Stay calm when those around you have clearly lost the ability to do so.
- Keep moving. Exercise is good for the body, mind, and your life expectancy.
- Keep assessing the situation. You may just be better off letting the problem wear itself out.
Happy Tuesday! Stay strong and healthy out there!
This short little video reminds us of our beloved ferrets, Marzo and Fergie. They were not tree bandits, but they sure did love to sink their little ferret teeth into potatoes and drag them under a dresser in the bedroom. They only wanted potatoes, and they always drug them to the dresser. They never tried to eat the potatoes, they just found comfort in having a hidden stockpile of them.
Happy Tuesday! We hope you find something shiny, or starchy, that will just make your day.
We know that the holiday tradition in this week’s installment of “Tickle Paw Tuesday” will be played out many times over as our favorite felines pounce upon your decorated trees and conquer them in only the way they do. Of course, after all that conquering and destruction, it will be time to feed the cat.
Thankfully, we’ve never had a problem with Winni and holiday decorations. She does love to wrap herself up in some garland.
What about you? Has your cat decided the tree makes a nice nesting spot or play toy?
If your cat is enjoying the tree too much, a few good sprays of “Bitter Apple” on the trunk of the tree should help. Packaging tape wrapped around the trunk (with the sticky side out) is also a pretty good deterrent for the curious kitty. Got a tip that works for you?
Tuesday has to be the loneliest day of the week. Monday is hated, Wednesday is celebrated, and Thursday is undoubtedly the most productive day of the week as people prepare for Friday. Friday, the most beloved, is the kick off to the weekend. Saturday and Sunday are the peaks of the weekend mountain we must slide down so that we may start the process all over again.
For sad Tuesday, we will begin a new series – Tickle Paw Tuesday. Every Tuesday, we’ll feature an entertaining “Paw Tickler” video we’ve found on the web and share it with you. Take back Tuesday, and make it a day of smiles and share the love.
We’ll start this one off with a funny video featuring a dog and child duo. Our husky would have approved. This husky pup will not be outdone! A husky voice is a terrible thing to waste, especially when a cute baby is trying to steal the limelight, err, video camera time.
