Want to see a real life reindeer? The Cougar Mountain Zoo in Issaquah, Washington has them.

Ah, another Christmas has come and gone and the year of 2015 is literally 2 days away.  You know, just thinking about Christmas and Santa Claus?  Did you know that you can actually meet a real life Reindeer here in Washington State (and no I am not talking about Rudolph).  In Issaquah, Washington, there is relatively small zoo called, the Cougar Mountain Zoo where you can see them.  Check out a video they have here:

I actually went to the Cougar Mountain Zoo once.  It was several years ago during the summer months, but I want to go there again possibly next year given the opportunity.  In addition to reindeer, they have several other animals, including: cougars, macaws, cheetahs and many other kinds of animals.  Sadly, I did not have a windows phone at the time so I wasn't able to get pictures that time (like I did at the Point Defiance Zoo earlier this year).  For more information, you can visit their website at http://www.cougarmountainzoo.org/About%20Zoo/welcome.aspx.  .

By the way, Washinton State has several other Zoos I have been to, including:
- Northwest Trek (there you can go on a tram ride and see animals that way)
- Reptile Zoo near Sultan, Washington (they have an assortment of reptiles you can see).
- Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma, Washington (they also have an aquarium you can check out too). I went there earlier this year by the way
- Woodland Park Zoo.  It is probably the biggest zoo in Washington State that I am aware of and has huge collection of animals to check out (they even offer a giraffe feeding station too).  I've been there for some of the Kohl's cares event they host too.
- Olympic Game farm in Sequim.  It is definitely a hike from the Seattle area (though taking the ferry can help save time depending on traffic levels) and you can drive through the park and literally feed animals, including caribou, buffalo, and other animals.  Only watch your step as you drive as some of the animals love to get really close to your car.
- Vancouver British Columbia Zoo.  It is up in Canada, but I have been there at least once.  It is near Aldergrove (just east of the Vancouver area) and it is almost as big as the Woodland Park Zoo.

Golden puppy meets alasken malamute

Here is a video (uploaded recently) about a golden retriever puppy meeting an alaskan malamute.  I bet the golden will keep the other dog busy considering that goldens can have lots of energy too (especially as puppies).

Cute Kittens Snuggle And Playing

Who likes kittens?  Here is a cute video about kittens playing.  Posted by Miss Awww.  I'd get a cat but I have 2 dogs, plus I am actually allergic to cats, so I can't.

Update on the job at Wet Noses

On my last post, I said I was getting a new temporary full time job at Wet Noses.  It is basically a company that makes and sells dog treats to customers and retailers.  For my job, I was doing several things including:
- helping to pack boxes
- putting tags on things
- wrapping things
- Putting together boxes

Well, I was there for about a week and long story short, I found out that I was let go from the job last night.  I remember from some of my coworkers that they hire on temps but they usually keep some on full time while others they get rid of and sadly I didn't make the cut.  I did pretty well with most of the tasks I did, but like most people I did have my strengths and weaknesses.  Anyways, I think there was a station I was doing that I was weak at (namely the one where you have to wrap these "muffins" on a stick, or whatever they are called).  They showed me how to do it, but it was trickier to do than it looked and I think that trippmed me up there (I guess they are expecting everyone to be perfect at all of the stations there).  So despite my best efforts, I did not make the cut (got a call last night from my recruiter that I was going to be "let go" from the position).  On the positive note, now I do have some extra time to make new posts.

By the way, have any of you had jobs that you hated or didn't go so well for you?

Got a new temporary job at Wet Noses in Monroe

Picture of the Wet Noses website (visit http://wet-noses.com/ for more info).

It has been a few days since I have posted last, so I will go ahead and make my latest post.  I am back from Whistler British Columbia, in case if you don't know, and these last few weeks have been pretty busy for me with some interesting changes.  I will post this change on this blog since it is somewhat relevant to pets.  Up till midpoint of last month, I was working part time at Snohomish Publishing (usually 3-6:30 in the afternoon Monday through Friday) along with part time at Kohl's and Advantage Sales and Marketing.  Of course, about halfway through last month, Snohomish Publishing went out of business and so I don't work there anymore.  I still work at Kohls and Advantage part time, but they are more gigs for me than regular jobs (I work at Kohl's one 4 hour shift every week on average and Advantage is always hit and miss each week, where some weeks I get lots of demos to do and others I get little or no demos). Well, last week I resumed my job search and not long after I started on my job search, I got recruited by Allstarz Staffing / Pace Staffing for a warehouse position at Wet Noses (which is supposed to last all of this month and possibly longer if they decide to hire me on full time after my assignment ends in January).  I officially started working there last Thursday and am supposed to work there at least till after New Years.  

I can't divuldge too much information about Wet Noses (had to sign a non-disclosure agreement when hired on), but I will just say they make various kinds of treats for dogs(such as "cookies" and "cupcakes") that they sell to vaious retailers they are affiliated with.  I help in the warehouse with packaging, wrapping, tagging and decorating the various doggie treats.  By the way, I am sure my dog, Tucker would love to try what they are making (maybe I can buy some of their products sometime).  This job is full time Monday through Friday and the average shift runs from 6:00 am to 2:30 pm (which means I have to get up 4:30 every morning between now and January).  As a result of this new job, I will probably be less active on posting to this blog for a while.  I will try to make posts sometimes, but much of my mornings and early afternoons are going to be quite busy for a while.  This position is supposed to run till January, though there is always a chance Wet Noses could hire me on full time, though I probably won't know whether or not they will extend me until towards the end of this month.

Siberian Husky Puppies Playing in the snow, plus pics from Whistler

Do you like siberian huskies?  Here is a video I saw on youtube showing a good sized collection of husky puppies playing in the snow. This video is pretty fitting for this time of year (December) considering that winter is pretty much here (at least here in Washington State, I don't know about elsewhere).

By the way, you know in Whistler BC, the Whistler Village is a popular place for people to take their dogs for a walk and as you might expect in Canada every now and then you just might encounter people with siberian huskies and alaskan malamutes.  It doesn't happen every time in Whister, but I have seen people with huskies and malamutes on more than one occasion.  Here are some pictures I have of them:

Here is a picture of my mother with a lady walking her 2 dogs, namely a malamute and another dog (not sure what breed the other  dog is).  Yes, it was cold that day (I think it was only about 8 degrees farenheight that day).

I actually got a picture of this malamute near the Needa Lake lodge in the Creekside Vincinity of Whistler.  I was going back to my car after having lunch and saw my mother petting her and managed to get a picture of her with my phone.  

Flashback from Thanksgviving 2013.  I snapped a picture of this siberian husky sitting in a chair outside a Starbucks in the Whistler Village (by the way, there are 3 Starbucks' in Whistler).  This one was across the street from where the Carlbergs' gift store is.  I didn't see a sibe there this year though, so I am sure it is not every day you see dogs sitting in a chair like this one.
Well, that is all for now.  Do you have pictures or videos of your dogs playing in the snow.  By the way, it did snow a few times while in Whister.

Wolf Howl

Have you ever wondered what a wolf howl sounds like?  Here is a video where 2 ladies demonstrate how an arctic (white) wolf howls.  Warning: this video is loud, so you might want to turn down your speakers.

Cute Puppy Playing With Ball

Here is a cute video of a golden retriever puppy playing with what looks like a green tennis ball.  Seems typical of golden retrievers.


This dog reminds me of my golden retriever (Tucker).  He chases after lacrosse balls, tennis balls, and even footballs too.

My connections with this video.  Here is a video I have of my dog (Tucker) chasing after a football.

Snow // Malamute // Winter Fun

This malamute looks like he really enjoys being out in the snow.  Huskies and malamutes are called snow dogs for a reason you know.  By the way, were are getting snow here in Whistler British Columbia, unlike Snohomish, Washington (we will probably not get our first snow there till sometime in December in January if I had to guess).

A Memorial for the100 Slaughtered Sled Dogs in Whistler BC, WTF Moments

Here is a wtf moment in the animal world.  If you had perfectly healthy dogs and didn't want to keep them anymore, would you shoot them (or otherwise euthanise them)?  I know I would try to give the dogs away.  However, apparently a Sled Dog company in Canada did just that.  In this video is a memorial for the dogs that were euthanised.  Warning:  this video is sad and if you are sensitive to things like that, don't feel like you have to watch them.

Also, you can read more about the incident at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whistler_sled_dog_cull

That video was sad wasn't it?  Long before Teddy, Angel and now Tucker, I remember my family had a dog once that we weren't able to raise(a springer spaniel named, Crocket) and he proved to be too much for my family, and so we ended up giving him away to another family.  But to kill dogs you don't need anymore, that is just messed up pal.  Thought I would share it.  By the way, what are your thoughts on the story?  Would you give your dogs away if you don't need them anymore.  I am sure even in Canada, there are people that probably would have loved to take the dogs off their hands if they didn't want them anymore.

Vacation Dog Sledding - Whistler, BC Canada March 2008

Considering that I am vacationing in Whistler British Columbia this week, here is a video on dogsledding there.  Not sure if I will go dog sledding (I have heard that it is expensive there), but I wouldn't mind checking it out someday if I had the extra money.

Kids At The Zoo: Compilation

Have any of you been to the zoo this last year?  I went to the Point Definace Zoo in Tacoma back in July.  Anyways, here is an interesting video on youtube from AFV about kids and animals "interacting" together at various zoos.


These videos were pretty funny.  Though if I were the kids, I would probably be nervous about the large cats pawing at the glass.  It is almost like they were thinking of the kids as lunch.  Let's hope the glass is strong enough to keep them on  the otherside.  Other tidbits:

- I liked how the toddler reacted when a giraffe what trying to lick up the food the toddler was offering it.

- Bears and kids interacting was pretty cool.

-  Also, the Ostrich trying to "eat" the glass.

What did you guys think of these clips?  Have you taken your kids to the zoo yet?  Obviously I don't have kids myself, but I usually try to go to the zoo at least once or twice each year.  Will probably try to go to the Woodland Park Zoo again next year given the opportunity.

Happy Halloween From AFV Animals!

Here is a Hallowenish themed video from AFV.  Pretty funny

Dog Scared By Godzilla

Here is a funny video about what looks like a golden retriever being chased by a toy Gozilla.  The dog even decides to hide in the shower.  The dog probably thought that the toy was real and was trying to get away.  Pretty funny video.  I hope the dogs warms up to the toy though.

Horse headbutts man - funny video

Here is a funny and yet crude video I saw on Stupidvideos.  In this video, there is a man walking a horse and a guy holding pales of water and the guy with the water gets knocked down by another horse.  By the way, I like how the horse being walked reacts in this video too.  Check it out:

Top 10 creepy creatures and urban legends in the animal kingdom part 1

Here is another Halloweenish post for this year.  Most animals in the world we know about, but there are some lesser known creatures (that may or may not exist) that can be downright creepy assuming they do exist.  I will break up this post 2 entries and I give you the first five creepy cryptozoological creatures and urban legends:
Disclaimer: I am going to take a neutral position on cryptozology for now.  Personally I have never seen a sasquatch or similar creature so I have no idea if these creatures exist or not, but the fact that some people claim to have seen them make me wonder.  I will let you know if I do see anything out of an ordinary.  Also, I am not an expert on wierd creatures either.

Creature Number 1 - Bigfoot / Sasquatch

Hikers and drivers beware, if you venture out into the woods in remote areas around the United States (or even Canada for that matter), you may encounter an ape like creature commonly known as Bigfoot (or Sasquatch).  Above is the infamous Roger Patterson Bigfoot footage, which is about an alleged sighting of Bigfoot (I think somewhere in California).  This footage is perhaps the best evidence I seen about the creature and shows what looks like a living Sasquatch roaming around the woods and looking at the camera during the footage.  It is unmistakable that there is something walking around in the video.  Now the video has been scrutinized and been through lots of speculation over the years, but if I had to guess, this video is either an elaborate hoax (considering that there have been people who have dressed up as Bigfoot, such as prankster Ray Wallace) or it is a living Bigfoot roaming around.  You decide.  Anyways, this is just one of several alleged videos and pictures on bigfoot sightings that have surfaced over the years.  By the way, many other countries around the globe have similar mysterious creatures roaming their lands, including Skunk Apes in Florida, Yetis in asia, and Yowies in Australia.  Whether or not Bigfoot actually exists I do not know.  I want to believe they exist, but I have yet to see one for myself and ultimately I will have to see the creature myself to truly believe they exist.  Yet, there are people that have sworn to have seen the creature.
By the way, if you want more information about the bigfoot mystery, you should visit http://www.bfro.net for more information about the bigfoot phenomenon.  They have a huge database of bigfoot sightings all over the globe, expeditions you can join (if you want to look for the creature) and many other resources you can check out.  By the way, Animal Planet has a show about bigfoot, called "Finding Bigfoot" that you can check out as well.  

Creature 2 - Lochness Monster and similar lake monsters

I am sure you are aware of the Loch Ness Monster mystery.  I've never been to Scotland myself (never been overseas), but if you visit the waters of Loch Ness in Scotland, you might encounter what is known as the Loch Ness Monster.  There are many theories about the creature, including it being a sturgeon (large fish), plesiosaur, under water elephant (not sure if elephants exist in England at least outside of zoos), etc, though based on what I have read about the creature, it seems to be some sort of sea serpant or plesiosaur.  I don't know if the creature is real, but it is definitely mind boggling.  By the way, Loch Ness is not the only place where you might encounter a lake monster.  Other lakes I am aware of that have similar legends includes: Flathead Lake in Montana (I went by there last summer, but I didn't see anything out of the ordinary there), Lake Okanogan in British Columbia Canada, Lake Chaplain in New York (never been there), and even Lake Tahoe (Tessie).

Creature # 3 - Jersey Devil

Now here is a cryptozoological creature that might make your skin crawl.  I've only been to New Jersey once, though I was really young back then (maybe 8 years old) and despite the urban feel to New Jersey (especially near New York City), there do seem to be some rural parts of New Jersey and as with many remote areas around the country, New Jersey has its own urban legends.
Alleged photo of the Jersey Devil.  Image source: http://www.writeonnewjersey.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/Jersey-Devil-Photo.jpg
If you are brave enough venture out into the Pine Barrens in New Jersey (or similar areas, especially at night), you might encounter the fearsome Jersey Devil.  I don't live in New Jersey (Washington State to be exact) so I don't know too much about the creature besides what I have read about online (as well as on the Travel Channel Show, Wierd Travels), but from what I have read, it seems to be this fearsome beast (possibly a demonic creature) that resembles a beastlike horse with wings and has a monsterous looks.  It is said to haunt the Pine Barrens area and similar areas in southern New Jersey.  Perhaps the most intriguing thing about the Jersey Devil was the infamous "Paranormal Week" phenomenon that took place back in 1909 (obviously I wasn't alive back then) when a huge slew of sightings took place all over New Jersey, possibly even in the Camden and Philadelphia areas.  If the 1909 events didn't convince skeptics, I bet nothing will.  Reminds me a bit of the events in Roswell, New Mexico back in 1948 when a UFO supposedly crashed there.  Did those events really happen, I do not know.  For more information about the Jersey Devil, you can check out a Wikipedia article on it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jersey_Devil.

Creature 4 - Mothman

Random sketch of Mothman.  Image source: http://mysteryoftheinquity.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/mothman071207a.jpg
Here is creepy urban legend originating from West Virgina (near Point Pleasant).  I first learned about this urban legend when reading the book, "Railway Ghosts and Highway Horrers".  There was a legend about some couple driving along a lonely road near Point Pleasant, West Viginia and had an encounter with the creature as they were driving that left them frightened.  It is supposedly a cross between a man and a giant moth with red eyes. I've never seen anything like it before but if you are driving around West Virginia late at night, you might encounter this fearsome creature.  Like the Jersey Devil, the creature may be demonic in nature.  It is also worth mentioning that sightings of the Mothman are not limited to West Virginia.  Apparently it has appeared in various other states too (I can't remember the source, but i have heard that it can happen elsewhere too) and sometimes appears before a tragedy (for example, in Point Pleasant, apparently the creature appeared several times before the Silver Bridge there collapsed back in 1967).  Also, the legend seems to be the inspiration for the movie, Mothman Prophecies.  Also, both Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow and Portrait of Ruin poke some fun at the creature by making it an enemy that you can defeat that tries to drop poisinous dust on the player.  Here is a video about the Mothman from Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow (you will need to skip ahead to around 4:00 to see it).  You can read more about the Mothman at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mothman.

Creature 5: Flying Humanoids

Here is an alleged video of a flying humanoid somewhere in India:

Here is a frightening creature you might encounter if you know where to look: flying humanoids.  I first learned about flying humanoids on the History Channel (see http://www.history.com/shows/monsterquest/episodes/season-3).  I've never encountered a flying humanoid, but apparently there are people that have seen the creatures.  Flying humanoids are supposedly these monster like creatures that fly around in the sky and have been known to turn hostile sometimes (as was the case for a father and son somewhere in Missouri, see http://www.destinationamerica.com/tv-shows/monsters-and-mysteries-in-america/videos/flying-humanoid.htm for the documentary).  Apparently there may have been a flying humanoid sighting in Chehalis Washington back in 1948 (see http://www.weirdus.com/states/washington/unexplained_phenomena/flying_men/index.php for the story).  I thought that the India video was pretty interesting.  It looks like a creature hovers in the sky and starts flying around fast with the people in the video getting into a state of panic.  Luckily nobody is hurt in the video.  I've never seen the creature myself, but I guess you never know what you might find flying around in the sky besides the usual planes and birds.

Well, that is all for now.  Stay tuned for part 2.

Have you seen any strange creatures (like the ones mentioned above)?  Feel free to share your stories here.

Disclaimer: these are all urban legends and may or may not exist, and no I am not an expert on strange creatures, but there are sites on the net you can check out if you want more information about them.  I will say that I am an open skeptic about the creatures myself (I can't say I truly believe these kinds of creatures exist, but if I see or hear something I will let you know).

Topics for part 2 includes:
- Dover Demons
- Thunderbirds
- Man eating whales and fish
- Giant Squid (aka the Kraken)
- Chupacabras

Siberian Husky puppy afraid of stairs

Here is an interesting video I saw at Yahoo today about a siberian husky puppy that seems to be afraid of going downstairs.  The dog's owner tries to get him to go downstairs, but the puppy is not budging and is even crying too.  Hopefully the dog will get over his fear of stairs soon, though, especially by the time he is fully grown.  Note for some reason, videos on yahoo can't seem to be embedded in blogspot blogs.  If you can't see it here, you can check it out at https://news.yahoo.com/puppy-terrified-of-stairs-video-162555600.html .  Akternatively, you can watch the youtube version here.

Have any of you had problems with your pets going downstairs?  Both of my dogs can go up and downstairs with no problems.

Sleeping Humpback whale video

Here is a cool video I saw today about a huge sleeping humpback whale.  Can't you imagine what it must be like to have been in the diver's shoes?  I've never seen anything like it before.  Interestingly, the whale wakes up before the end of the video.

By the way, the diver was brave to get close to the whale like that.  Last time I saw a humpback myself was back in 2010 when I went on a cruise to Alaska.  Haven't seen one since.

RUN MEMPHIS RUN | Huskies love to run!

Do you like to run or get exercise?  Siberian Huskies just might be for you.  Check out the video of Memphis the husky below.  I bet huskies (and similar large breeds) can get you in shape really quickly given the amount of exercise they need each day.  By the way, Memphis is just one of 3 huskies that the poster has.  Can't you imagine what it must be like going with 3 of them.

Funny disobediant Siberian Huskies collection

It has been said that siberian huskies are "independent" and can be stubborn at times.  I have seen several funny videos putting this theory to the test.  Here are at least five videos featuring disobediant siberian huskies:

1. Husky dog talking-DEMON 'trying' to say "I love you". VERY funny outcome! (Posted by Drumkill1220)

Here is a funny epic fail video about some dude trying to get his dog to "say I love you".  One interesting phenomenon going on youtube and similar sites involving huskies (and malamutes for that matter) is that sometimes  people can get their dogs to "talk" and say things, like "I love you".  Perhaps the well known "I love you" video is the one with the famous Mishka the husky (along with her sister Laika), check out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXo3NFqkaRM for the original video of Mishka the husky saying "I love you".  Anyways, other people watching this video who have dogs (especially huskies or malamutes) naturally get ideas and try to get their dogs do the some thing.  Sometimes they succees but as in the case of this particular video, not every husky is the same and are epic fails.  This video was pretty funny considering how Demon the husky goes crazy when being told "I love you" as if he seems to hat that word.  I also like how he goes "woooo" towards the beginning of the video.  Definitely a classic example disobediant huskies.

Video 2 - My Disobedient Siberian Huskies (posted by twocan1)

This is actually one of 2 videos twocan1 posted about his huskies, both rather funny.  Obviously the guy wants the dogs to get up and probably go for a walk or something but the three huskies just lay there looking at their master.  They are probably like, "go away, we are trying to relax".  You know another moral I find from this video: let a sleeping dog sleep.  Seems like they were trying to take a nap or something.

Video 3 - Husky Tantrum (posted by Allllyssssa)

Talk about stubborness.  I am assuming the lady in this video is Allyssa and she is filming her dog Luka the husky.  You know, even my golden retriever will sleep on the solfa sometimes (especially when nobody is home) though obviously when dogs like huskies or goldens sleep on furniture, their fur can get everywhere leaving a mess to clean up, so naturally Allyssa wants her dog to get off.  Of course, Luka is having none of it and even "talks back".  Good luck getting him off t he solfa.

Video 4 - Leave me alone, you silly dog, or else (posted by lotuslena08)
Here is a funny video about a stubborn young husky trying to play with a cat that obviously wants to be left alone.  The dog obviously wants to play with the cat but the cat is having none of it and even hisses and even swats at the husky.  If the dog is not careful, he will get "slapped".  Pretty funny video though.  Perhaps he will learn from his stubborness soon enough (especially if he gets scratched).

Video 5 - Husky says No (video).  Posted by John Ventresco
Last, but not least, here is this video.  I am sure you have seen it before.  In the video, I am assuming John (the video poster) is trying to get his husky (Blaze) go go into his kennel (don't know why), but the husky literally vocalizes "no" to him and obviously does not want to go into his kennel, and thus hillarity ensues in the video.  Now, this is the epitone of stubborness in my opinion.  Can't you imagine what it must be like living with Blaze, whenever you ask something he doesnt want to do, he will just say "no".  *Sarcasm*(Me) Want to go for a walk?  (Blaze): No.  (Me) come!  (Blaze) No! (Me) Get off the couch.  (Blaze) No!  This list could go on, but this is probably the funniest I have seen.

Well, that is all for now.  I am sure there are more videos like these ones out there, but this post would be really long if I posted them all.  As you can see, huskies can definitely be stubborn creatures.  I've never lived with a husky myself, but I guess stubborness is definitely something you may have to deal with if you live with one.

Do you have similar experiences with your dogs?  Feel free to leave a comment below.

Real life scaredy cats collection (October 1, 2014 special)

In case if you don't know, today is October 1, 2014 and you know what that means: Halloween is just around the corner (Christmas and Thanksgiving too for that matter).  Anyways, have you ever heard of the term, scaredy cat?  I know I have.  By the way, here is a clip from Garfield when he does his famous scaredy cat song and even gets spooked a few times himeself.  Check it out:

My family usually watches Garfield's halloween special at least or twice around halloween season.  Anyways, I think this would be a good cat related post.  Check out some real life scaredy cats:

1. Scaredy Cats (posted by TastefullyOffensive.com)

Some of these clips were down right amusing.
 2. Compilation Of Scaredy Dogs Terrified Of Walking Past Cats (posted by Michael BYF)

I though this video was pretty amusing with dogs (large and small) cowering around cats.  Why they are afraid of them, I do not know, but I thought the video was pretty amusing.  Talk about scaredy cats, how about scaredy dogs.

3. Cat scared of baby (posted by MDA).  You can also find this video on StupidVideos as well in case if you are curious.

 Now here is a classic scaredy cat.  By the way, the baby in the video is mainly just sleeping, but if the cat is scared of the baby while he/she is sleeping (I don't know what the gender is, so I will just call the baby a he for now), I wonder what would happen if he was up or even crawling around?  I bet that would send the cat running.

4.  Conan the scaredy cat (posted by Conan the Kitteh!)

I am guessing that Conan the cat was named after Conan the Barbarian (aka Arnold Schwartzenager). Anyways, this cat was pretty funny and hardly brave in this video.  You what the funny part is: he was afraid of a teddy bear.  How amusing?  Reminds me of another video I saw not long ago about a cat getting scared of a person dressed up as a wolf.

5. Scared Cats compilation 2014 part 1 (posted by MoreFunVideo)
Here is another compilation of scaredy cats (pretty funny):

Some of these were really funny, like the one where a cat seemed to be jumping in tune to Super Mario jumping (sounded like someone was playing the original Super Mario Bros on NES in the background.  Also, the one where a cat scared another cat and they got in a fight.

Well, that is all for now.  This list could go on as there are many videos on scaredy cats and dogs on YouTube but I hope you enjoyed.  By the way, do you have any funny stories to share about your dogs and cats?  Feel free to comment below.

Dog does ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Here is another dog doing the ice bucket challenge.  In  this video, a siberian husky "takes one for the team".  Brave dog

Funny Ice Bucket Challenge With a Dog

For those of you who are into the ice bucket challenge stuff, here is a funny video about some dude having his dog tip over the ice bucket with funny results.  I do have to admit that the dog is pretty smart.  BTW, I've never done the ice bucket challenge myself (I am not that brave), but there seem to be alot of videos about others doing them.

Frog TV Video on Stupidvideos, funny frogs

Here is a funny video I saw on Stupidvideos.  In the video, there is an iphone (at least I assume it is an iphone) with a video playing (looks like worms in the video) and frogs start gathering around it.  Some frogs even try to eat the "worms" in the video by lunging at the screen.  Check it out:

By the way, this is not the first time a frog is interacting with an iphone.  Do you remember the video where a bull frog tries to catch "flies" via a phone.  Here is the other one:
It is funny how the frog bites the guy's finger when he tries to reset the game.  I never knew that frogs could bite that hard.  I hope he was okay.  I've never lived with frogs so I wouldn't know what it is like to have a pet frog by the way.

What do you all think of these videos?

Worst Angry Dog Ever video

Here is a funny video on Stupidvideos about what looks like a chihuahua growling at the camera man.  Luckily the chihuahua doesn't snap or anything, but talk about grumpiness:

Massive herd of elk in Montana

Have you seen anything like this before?  I have been to Montana several times myself, but have never seen elk there.  I have seen buffalo there (especially last time I was there when I went to a buffalo wild life refuge) and even saw a black bear once too.

I bet that seeing all of the elk in Montana had to be a facinating sight.  I didn't see lots of elk crossing the oad when I was there last summer.  Though I imagine that Montana would be a good place to go if you are looking for wild animals like elk (especially western Montana).  Lots of that state is open county and is home to a good variety of animals, including buffalo (especially near Yellowstone), wolves, black bear, grizzly bears (especially at Glacier National park), coyotes, elk, cougars, and many others.  Montana is definitely a good place to go if you are trying to get out of the hustle and bustle in cities.

Close encounter Kayakers get rare look at humpbacks

Here is a news article about kayakers having close encounters with a humbpack whale.  As you can see the whale breaches just inches away from the kayaker.  By the way, humpbacks definitely don't seem to be shy about coming close to people, especially boaters, kayakers and swimmers too.

Also, this is not the first time a humpback whale has gotten to close for comfort for some people.  I remember at least 3 incidents where someone almost got swallowed by them, including 2 in california as well as 1 in Alaska (when a bunch of humpbacks were feeding hear kayakers).  Makes me wonder if there are more incidents like these that haven't been reported yet?  By the way, here are some similar videos:
Here is the video where there were two divers swimmer and a feeding humpack surfaced just inches away.
Also, here is the video of a surfer in the same kind of situation

Here is the one about Kayakers having a close encounter with humpbacks in Alaska

Can't you imagine what it would be like being like in these kinds of situations?  Although I have seen whales before (like the humpbacks I saw on the cruise to Alaska back in 2010), I have never seen anything like these before.  It has got to be an interesting and yet terrifying experience for those people.  Makes me wonder if boaters have been hit or swallowed by them before.  Also, in the above videos, I wonder if the whales could swallow people if they wanted to?  Though I though I have heard that their throats are too small to swallow people, but at the same time their mouths are huge and I wouldn't be suprised if they could engulf people even by accident.

What do you guys think of these?  Have any of you had similar experiences?

Cat scared of baby video...wtf moment

Here is a somewhat funny video on StupidVideos.  In this video, there is a cat and a sleeping baby and the cat seems to get scared whenever the baby moves (it doesn't seem to know what to make of the baby).  Check it out:

Now that is what I called one scaredy cat (all the baby does is that he/she is yawn and move and the cat backs away).  Though perhaps the cat figured it would be best to let the baby sleep.

Happy golden retriever tennis ball overload

You know, golden retrievers love to chase after balls.  Tucker (my dog) can definitely attest to this fact.  One thing I like about this video is that the dogs have lots of tennis balls to chase after.

Dog Pool party anyone

Here is a cool video I found on KALB News Channel 5's page on Facebook.  Sometimes I've seen videos of dogs swimming in pools and even lakes too (btw, Tucker will go for a swim when given the opportunity).  Anyways, in this posted by KALB News, there is a pool with multiple dogs swimming in it.  I have never seen anything like it before.  Check it out!

DuckTales Theme Song With Real Ducks

Ah, I remember watching Duck Tales back in the day, especially during the early 90's.  By the way, who else here used to watch Duck Tales when you were younger?  I know I used to watch that show often back when I was a kid (along with other shows like Chip and Dale Rescue Ranger, Talespin, Darkwing duck, and later Xmen, Animaniacs, Batman and Mighty Morphin power rangers as well during those years).  Besides the show, I remember used to have 2 Duck Tales video games (one for the computer and later the version for the NES) and even saw the movie verion once in theaters.  Anyways, here is a cool music video I found on Youtube (posted by Disney) featuring the Duck Tales theme song and using real life ducks as "actors:" for the show.  Pretty funny video.  Check it out.

Like this post?  Please feel free to like and share this post with your friends.

Have comments you want to share?  Feel free to share it below.  By the way, did you watch Duck Tales when you were younger?  I was probably 9 or 10 at the time.  Also, I think there is a remake of the Duck Tales game coming out for the Xbox One if I remember hearing correctly.

Washington State Fair (Puyallup Fair) Pictures 2014

As promised here are all of the pictures I took at the Washington State Fair (aka the Puyallup Fair).  I wanted to take more pictures than I did, but my camera phone's batteries died about half way through my time there.  I tried to charge the phone the night before, but I am not sure if it charged all the way or not as the charge on my phone was already less than half full by the time I got to the fair.  Also, I was originally planning to go to the fair with the Young Professionals Group through the city church but I didn't see anyone I recognized from the group there (makes me wondered if everyone bailed at the last minute), so I pretty much did my own thing there.  By the way, are you thinking about going to the Washington State Fair?  They do have a website you can check out at http://www.thefair.com/. Also, the fair is on this year from September 5 to 21.  Here are the pictures I took:
Arrived at the fairgrounds via the Green Gate.  Usually I find parking near the fair grounds, but as I was driving to Puyallup, I found out that the Kiwanis were offering shuttle services for a mere $5 (which was about half price in comparison to how much it would have cost to park in the average parking lots near the fair considering that many of them were charging about $12 for parking).  

Picture of geese at the fair.  There were several of them.  On the second time I went through they seemed to be a bit restless.

Picture of white ducks

Picture of a random horse in the horse barn area.  I feel kind of sorry for them considering that they are behind large cages like this one.  Interestingly the fair seems to have a wierd policy that you can't most of the animals there with signs warning people not to touch animals for health reasons.  Though I found that you could put your hand by the bars and let the horses sniff your hand if you want.

Another horse at the horse barn.  The horse barn is huge there with lots of horses to view.

Sleeping cat at the cat barn.  By the way, the fair did not have a dog barn when I was there. though they seemed to rotate dogs and cats on seperate days.  According to the fair brochure, dogs should make an appearance later on this month.

Picture of a black cat at a fair.  By the way, I am not superstitious about black cats and they can definitely be really cute.

Another cat.  There were lots of cats in the cat exhibits.  If my phone was more charged, I would have taken pictures of more of them.

Here is an indoor garden exhibit at the Northwest Tent at the fair.

Here is a giant model of a gray whale.  By the way, don't worry as this is not a real whale, just a model.

Here is a picture I took of a model the fair had of Mount Rainer and the Puyallup River valley.  Mount Rainer is huge and the biggest mountain in Washington and is also a dormant volcano.     

Visiting the cows barn.  

Here is a young cow

More cows

Picture of goats at the fair

Here is a long horn cow.  When I was at the fair, they had the Animals of the World exhibit going on (where you can see exotic animals from aroudn the world), and I bet you don't see cows like this one very often.  It is interesting how the fair was hosting the Animals of the world exhibits during the first weekend of the fair considering that they usually host it during the last weekend of the fair.

Here is a picture I took of a Yak at the fair.  Though you can't see it in this picture, there was a chain fence between me and the Yak so I could not get a closer picture of it.  I think it was there to keep people from touching the animals.

Here is a cool license plate.  Cadayak.  Thee was also a thing that talks about Yaks too. 

Here is a Zebra at the Washington State Fair.  

More horses at the fair (these ones were at the Animal of the World exhibit).  I bet they like having more freedom of movement than the ones at the horse barn did considering that the other ones were behind large cages.

Picture of a parrot at the fair.  You know what was funny: I actually tried to get the bird to say "smile for the camera" considering that some parrots can mimic human languages, but nothing happened.

Picture of a baby alpaca

Llama at the fair

Picture of a baby kangaroo at the fair.

Emu at the fair.  There were actually 2 of them in the pen, but I was only able to get a shot of one of them.

Not sure what kind of bird this is

Picture of a camel at the fair.  There was also a baby camel there, but I wasn't able to get a picture of it due having low battery in my phone.  By the way, they were offering camel rides on Sunday.  Not sure if the camel will be there next weekend though since I think it might be a part of the Animals of the World exhibit.

Picture of some of the food vendor booths.  Food was a bit pricey at the fair this time around (even fish and chips along with a soda costed me $15) so I had to be selective on where to buy food.  If you plan to buy food at the Washington State fair, expect to pay up to $10 or more.  If you are looking to buy cheaper food, you might want to consider stopping for fast food on the way.

Water fountain at the fair with a model fish in the back ground.

Make shift Saloon Style bar at the fair.  Definitely a good place to have a cold beer or wine before continuing on at the fair.  By the way, they do card you on the way in (keeping kids out of course).  

Couldn't resist taking pictures of these neo signs.

Looks like a Lego style model of the Space Needle.  Definitely iconic of the Seattle area.

Here is another model of the space needle with a picture of Mount Rainer in the background.  By the way, though I have lived in the Seattle area for over 20 years now, I've only been to the top once and that was back when I turned 12 (back in 1994).  Definitely due to visiting the Space Needle again sometime.  Hopfully I can go there at least once more before my family moves to Oregon (probably the Bend area) in a few years from now.  By the way, my brother Brett already lives in Oregon (near Portland to be exact), along with his girlfriend (and soon to be wife) Jocelyn, along with my aunt and uncle (Sandy and Helen) and my cousin Christian and his wife, Margaret (my aunt and uncle live near downtown Portland, while Christian and Margaret live in the Lake Oswego area).

Animals of the World sign.  

Picture of one of 3 vision dome tents.  The long line was for the video game vision dome exhibit which turned out to be a 3d version of the classic game, Asteroids shooter where you control these "guns" with a touch screen pad and try to shoot asteroids.  My only complaint about that one is that the controls seemed to lag alot.  Definitely not as good as say Xbox 360 and Xbox One.   Hopefully the exhibit will improve over time.  Though I didn't get pictures of the other tents, there were 2 other tents including one big one to the left of this tent that basically showed a documentary talking about man kind and our achievements.  There was also one behind me that showed a virtual flight tour of various landscapes and cities of the world, including deserts, cities (such as New York, London and Paris), along with other landscapes and towns.  To get in to the exhibit you had to buy tickets that sold for $6 each.  Note that this was around the time my camera phone's battery died so I wasn't able to get any more pictures after this one.   

Well those are all of the pictures I took (at least before my phone died).  If any of you have pictures or videos of the Washington State (Puyallup) fair that you want to share, feel free to let me know and I will post them.

Quick review of the Puyallup fair:

Things I liked:
- Definitely bigger than the Evergreen State fair, with more things to see and do.
- Lots of rides to choose from.  Someday I want to go on the rides again, but I will have to to wait till I have more money for it.
- They do have a petting zoo
- I liked the hypnotist they had there
- Liked the Animals of the Wold and Inspiration Dome exhibits
- Lots of food vendors to choose from.

Negative aspects:
- Traffic.  Lots of people at the fair, so expect traffic going there.  Same goes for lines, finding parking, etc.  Luckily there are shuttles that you can take to get to the fair if you don't want to try and find parking.
- Rules that say you can't pet any of the animals.  Seems like a dumb rule to me (though it appears health is an issue there).  Sure some animals should not be touched, but they could make some exceptions.  Also, the petting zoo area could be bigger with more baby animals like cows, goats, etc.
- Seems to be a bit more expensive than the Evergreen State fair.  You will defiitely need to bring $40 or more for your visits.  Costs include: parking (unless you are taking a shuttle) with many spots selling for $12 for a day, food (expect to spend at least $10 or more for meals), certain exhibits (such as the Inspiration Dome exhibits), rides (if you plan to do them, which includes the gondala and roller coasters by the way), shopping (if you plan to shop, especially in the areas where they have all of those vendors, some of who will try to sell you stuff you may or may not want), and concerts if you plan to attend them.  By the way, you can buy tickets online if you don't want to buy them at the gates.

Well that is all for now and hope you have liked this post.
