One of the highlights of my blog this year was hosting the Great Yorkie Bark-Off and, especially, collaborating with two creative dog lovers, Alana of Dexter’s Ruff Life and Luciana of Gangs of New Yorkie. We all worked hard and had a blast, but I know Luciana would agree that Alana was the talent behind the video — as evidenced by the fact that she has gotten more than a million (!) views of her mini-films, starring two adorable Yorkies, Dexter and his new-to-the-household little sister, Peppermint. Both are little trouble-makers — and bundles of fun.
Here are two Christmas-themed examples for your enjoyment.
Did I mention that Alana has a wonderfully warped sense of humor — and a willingness to put herself out there?
Alana has had kind of a tough year — her life through dog video is an open book, so I’m telling no tales (tails?) when I talk about her divorce. So here’s to a very happy Christmas, Alana, and a better next year. May Dexter and Peppermint continue to cheer you up when life is tough.
That’s my wish to the rest of you, too. May you have a wonderful seasonal celebration — or retreat — with the furred, feathered and/or bipedal family members that bring you joy. And to those who are going through a rough patch this season, remembering loved ones who have passed (yes, I’m thinking of you, Clare), hold the good times in your heart. Those who cared about you would not want you to be sad.
