downward yodeling dog

[editor’s note – please turn head sideways whilst watching the following video.  If necessary, use your hand to support your head to avoid neck strain.]*

Daisy is the chattiest dog I’ve ever had the pleasure to know.  When something exciting is about to happen (like a walk or a trip to the park) or if she just needs a little attention she starts up with the woo woo woo! Cracks. me. up.  Especially how her mouth forms a little circle.

Today, as I was gritting my way through the Tracy Anderson Mat workout, she started encroaching on my yoga mat.  By the half-way point Daisy had taken it over and commenced with the yodeling.  Who’s paying attention to me?

Silly girl.

* special thanks to Colleen for spending a good half hour on the phone with me while she rotated and resized my video.  Unfortunately, you cannot enjoy the fruits of her labor as we are too cheap to purchase the WordPress video upgrade and had to upload via youtube which promptly ignored her edits.  Lesson learned – don’t get creative with video orientation!

sometimes you need a cheesy video

If I listen to Flogging Molly’s “Another Bag of Bricks while I’m running does it make me feel more like a hotshot, cool runner?

A little.

Even if I’m only running for a total of 9 minutes?

A little.

Hey. I’ll do whatever it takes.
