A Joyous Version of David and Goliath

In this version, there are underdogs, overdogs, runningarounddogs and some mighty big paws.

Iris S sends us this video of her Samoyed Sammy and their Chinese crested visitor, Nike.

    How how HOW do they keep that dog so white? My parents have a white schnauzer, and he is all sorts of shades of brown and green and sometimes even purple, depending on the body part and what he got into that day. Nonamount of bathing will de-color him.

  2. This is such an awesome vid. A good way to start the day!

  3. This was my thought too. Brightest white Ah dun evah’ seen.

    Also? Nike is delightful.

    And Ritalin is said to be a quite effective medicine.
    Jus’ sayin’ ……

  4. Oh I want that great white fluffly cloud!! BTW that fave frame looks super operatic, and I’m thinking… soprano.

  5. Nike is such a spazzy little guy! So adorable! I love the hugs and happy tail waggles at 2:54. They are having so much fun.

  6. Pure Joy!

  7. Lovely dogs both of them and so happy!!!

  8. Whew! Happy doggehs tired me out just watching them. Lovely!!!!!

  9. I want a big white gentle floofy doggie!!

  10. I would like to give the big white fluffeh fella a BIG hug!

  11. MAN is that big dog gorgeous. And so gentle with the spazzy little fwend, heh.

  12. me too. and a rhinoceros bebbeh and a reg’lar giraffe and a miniature giraffe and a goat wif a beard and funny teef and about six cats. That oughta keep me, for a few months. I’ll let you know what else I need in January.

  13. Samoyeds are high energy dogs, and that floofy beauty looks positively mellow in comparison to the Chinese Crested goggie!

  14. I love how Sammy takes 2-3 steps to every 50-60 (& 30-40 leaps) of Nike’s.
    Nike has a great strategy hide UNDER Sammy so he/she can’t reach her !
    I guess it’s all fun & games till someone lays on you !

  15. Take THAT, ya big galoot! And THAT! And THAT! Had enough yet? No? Well, take THAT!

  16. I confess to wanting to stick my face right in the path of that big dog’s wagging tail. I bet it would tickle.

  17. Ya fergot da pocket hippo! 🙂

  18. Mary (the first) says:

    This made me LOL more than anything in a while! My fave part was the leap froggy game at about 3:00. But the whole thing was wonderful!! And yeah, the whitest dog EVER. He must have just had a bath!!

  19. *snerk*

  20. You do realize January is only a month and a bit from now, right?

    (“Couple of months” Harumph!)

  21. Catwhisperer says:

    That’s the cutest Chinese crested I have ever seen! I love that half of his face and one ear are black – so nicely accented by the white floof hanging over.

  22. I want to move to wherever that backyard is.

  23. I love how Sammy tries to find Nike’s “PLAY” button, then at 57 seconds he does & then Nike goes ballistic.

  24. And also I love happy dogs!

  25. theamypalooza says:

    Does anyone else watch these super close to find the exact moment the Fave Frame occurs?

  26. O. M. Dogness! My face hurts from smiling so much while watching this! This vid induced just the biggest grin…

  27. Ahhh, Sammies… I can never get enough. *sigh* He’s all “aww come on, let’s cuddle”, & Nike’s “WHOOP! WHOOP! WHOOP!”

  28. 🙂

  29. *winks*

  30. typical crested zoomin. mine does that indoors. aaand he did at one point miscalculate quite badly, and tried to jump over me (i was sitting on the floor) to get on the couch. i got a nose bleed, he was fine =P

    plus he was happily rampaging on the couch.

  31. I love everything about this video. The size discrepancy, the wagging tails, the music, the cuddles at 2:52, etc…

    Can anyone identify the music?

  32. Now THAT’S what I call GREAT reality tv. Okay, video. Too much fun!

  33. The Samoyed has hair naturally self-cleaning. I am French and my English is bad, sorry.

  34. Tee Hee! Little dog fuuuuny. *skwish*
