The NYC World According 2 Watson

Duly received from Meredith M: “So I strapped a little video cam onto my pup Watson’s back see NYC from a dachshund’s point of view. This is our first ‘Doxie Vision!!’” Video and pictures of the world’s cutest cameraman in action.” (Following quotes are from MM’s blog.)

“Using a custom-made harness, I strapped a GoPro camera to Watson’s back to get his view of Manhattan. The city can be amazing and overwhelming standing at 5’6″ so I was curious to see how it looked from 12″ high.”

[Note: this video is a bit completely coma-inducing to watch, but it’s fun to see NYC from the ground floor. S-S-S-Sorta.)

“‘Doxie Vision’ has been hilarious! Lots of butt sniffing, a maze of giant legs and terrifying close encounters with taxi wheels. The best part might be the reactions from passing New Yorkers: ‘That little dog’s got a camera!’ & ‘We’re on camera!…at least our feet are.’ More (less crooked!) videos TK.”

Bombogenesis Visits Watkins Glen

[Note: Had NO clue what a "Bombogenesis" was. Had to Bing It. -Ed]

The tireless Meredith T. of Farm Sanctuary digs way out and checks in. “With a large swath of the country digging out from Bombogenesis (that’s what they’re calling it! I swear!)..”

“I wanted to send you an adorable gallery of images of ‘Farm Animals in Snow.’”

“Just picture it— precious ducks, pigs and cows prancing and frolicking in snow.”

“I’m not sure why, but people never think about farm animals being in the snow.”

Poll: Leave It To Bieber!

Well, well. This is a Tail Tale Of Two Biebers.

First up, we have Bieber The Border Collie, who is so smart he can learn a new toy name in one minute! Check it out! (From Lucy S.)

Then, we have the other Bieber, who….gets busted in Miami Beach overnight and makes world headlines.

So…which Bieber is more talented?

THIS JUST IN: How 2 Draw Tabby Cats, By Simon Tofield

You might not know that name at first…but you know Simon’s Cat! In this new video, he shows us just how he draws Tabby Cats! (And of course, you get to listen to his fantastic British accent- always a plus. I don’t know what I’d rather have; the drawing skills or the accent. Must think.)

That’s All There Is To The Coastline Craze

Dolphins showed off their mad (or is it “rad”) surfin’ skillz at the Rincon Classic last weekend in Santa Barbara. Catch a wave, dudes.


And we can’t forget this fellow hanging ten..or hanging, er, however many it is he’s hanging.

Eet’s Awards Season, Dahlinks

FUR_7069 (Medium)It’s Awards Season, where all sorts of hardware gets handed out. Once again, we’d like to give Josh Norem AKA The Furrtographer a paw leg up. He’s up for Bay Woof Magazine’s Best Dog Photographer in the Bay Area, and also up for a similiar award for the SF A-List, which he bagged in 2013. (He told us he’d “personally autograph a puppy and send it to our offices” if we plugged this, so it’s a win-win for everyone. Make mine Maltipoo.)

For the Bay Woof contest, go here. Then just type your email then click “next” until you get to #43, then type in “The Furrtographer.” Click through to the end of the survey to register your vote.

The Sound Effects Alone Are Worth It

Julie S. says “Check out this video on YouTube: I have NO IDEA what they are saying, but the sound effects are charming!”

[Absolutely correct..though maybe a TAD overdone. If I have to FLY TO KOREA to take away their slide whistle, I'll do it. And why don't they have shows like this in the US? -Ed]

Another Winter Storm? Yeah, OK, Sure!

The USA Northeast has been blasted yet again with a giant winter storm. Not everyone seems to have a problem with it.
