Here are the pertinent folders for yesterday:
I mention yesterday because I didn't upload the movies until this morning. No one complained, which lead me to think no one is reading this blog or looking at the videos (which were missing) and that I'm wasting my time.
I thought it was nice to have a place where you can see some of what your dog is up to but if you would rather not stop by to see... then I'll cut it out. You can leave a note in the comments section to let me know you stopped by-- or I won't bother!
And about the files in the folder: if they end in MPG, Jim made them. His camera is worse than mine but his videos are much easier to upload and download quick. Also, he got a few names wrong but I labelled them correctly.
My videos end in WMV or MOV. The quicktime MOV movies are high res than the WMV versions. One or the other should work on most computers. They are the same, just different formats. I tried to embed video into this page but so far there is no easy way (has to be easy since I do so many every day).
I've also added a lot of stills today. They end in PCT.
I videoed a thing I do all the time but rarely post up here. I call it Holding Court. That's the video called "All Ears All Dogs." Basically I sit there and scratch everyone behind the ear if they want it.
Also, I did some match making. I have a nice arrangement now. I've been doing this a few years and I feel like I just know which dogs belong together, even if I can't immediately explain why. As the day goes on, as the videos get made, I start to figure it out. So by the end, different dogs are in different places.
My nervious dogs are Xena and Woodrow, although Woodrow is almost completely comfortable with me now. He did come for a scratch during Holding Court after the battery ran out. Anyway, he's cool now. Xena looks at me with a friendly face when I call her but doesn't come. I think she was intimated by the number of dogs, so she's with the smaller and/or shier dogs now.. dogs like Wellington, Ziza, Peanut, Crumb, Bernie... and my spillers, Moki and Norman, need to stay away from the buckets. Also, Woodrow hates Norman. They have balls, they can't help it. Princess is her usually bossy self but I've had her here so many times and she's never been involved in an incident -- a yellow card once, but no red card -- that I don't worry about it. Theo needed special treatment. I just let him wander by himself all morning, then sit in a room. He hates certain big dogs but it seems to change who he hates. He'll get himself hurt. Most of them don't come to mind immeidiately because they're just fine and happy and I don't need to worry about them: Sally, Layla, Django, Shiloh, etc... no issues.
That's the story for today. If I don't have any comments or emails, I might skip the videos... anyway, things are good here and all dogs are doing well.
