Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been having fun taking videos of my dog Midnight. I believe I mentioned in a post or two that we are the proud new owners of a Flip Camcorder. It’s the latest version – 3rd generation, 8 gb. We bought it near the beginning of February and since it arrived we’ve been using it pretty regularly to capture our dogs antics around the house and outdoors.
Our dog is quite a ham. I think she’s become more of a ham since we started video taping her regularly too. I think she realizes that we act differently when we have the little black camera in our hand or that we want her to act different .. so she acts up .. she barks like crazy and runs around and totally isn’t herself. At least she was like that in the first week or so, I think she’s getting use to the camera now and she’s beginning to act a bit more like herself again, which is good, because that’s really the dog that I want to show you, not the one that’s acting up.
We do have another video camera, an HD Sony Camera but we barely use it for some reason. So we got this one because we figured it would be a little easier to use and get video uploaded onto the internet so we could get the videos on our blogs.
I have to figure out how to piece together some of the videos that I’ve been taking. You see, my dog does this really cute thing, she jumps up and down like she’s on a trampoline when she wants us to slide her bone across the floor to her. We call this dog hockey. So I have all these videos of Midnight jumping up and down and chasing a bone and barking and barking as she does. I’m sure it’s kind of funny … but if I could mostly piece together a video of the jumping I think most people would get a laugh of the “jumping dog”. So I’m going to have to work on that. Who knows maybe Midnight will become a video star, the next Youtube star .. hmmm I’ll have to get her some costumes and bow ties to dress her up. LOL
Anyway .. for now I have a video of Midnight rolling around in the snow for you. She’s always loved the snow. She loves rolling in it too. She’ll roll in the snow for a whole walk if she can much to the delight of anyone passing by as it looks absolutely ridiculous … as you’ll soon see …. take a peek:
If you want to keep an eye on my YouTube account I’ll be uploading all of the videos that we’ve been taking over the last two weeks. I think there’s about 25 videos so far – pretty much all dog. Of course my YouTube account is about five or six years old and it has other older videos on it too so you might find some of the older stuff amusing too. Feel free to browse if you’d like.
