Husky puppy attempts to talk

Forget Mishka and Laika the husky.  This husky puppy below will blow both of them away (not literally of course).  Check it out:

This video was pretty funny.  I have seen "talking" huskies before (like Mishka the husky) where they say "I love you" or similar words, but this video takes talking huskies to a whole new level in my opinion.  I can't quite make out what the puppy is saying but it sounds a bit like "put me down" or "mama".  The lady holding the husky is laughing hysterically too.

Have any of you seen anything like this before?

Cat Thinks Washing Machine is a Treadmill

Here is a funny video showing a cat trying to make the washing machine spin.  Don't worry, it wasn't going at the time and no cats were harmed in the making of the video.

Golden Retrievers Puppies playing, plus some pictures of Tucker as a puppy

Here is a cute video posted by Mrs Awww on youtube featuring a bunch of golden retriever puppies playing.  

I bet all those the puppies are a handful for the owner.  I live with one golden retriever myself and he definitely has lots of energy, but it would defiitely be a challenge raising multiple ones.  By the way, I got both Tucker and Teddy (Tucker's predecessor, who passed away during the summer of 2007 due to old age) when they were both puppies.

Here are some pictures of Tucker as a puppy (taken back in 2007):

This was Tucker playing with his first chew toy (tennis ball shaped bone).  He definitely loves to chase after balls, especially lacrosse balls, footballs, and tennis balls.

Picture of Tucker sitting by his bed

Here is a picture of Tucker walking around the front yard of my house for the first time.

Note: I also have pictures of Teddy as a puppy, but they were taken long before we had a digital camera and they are in a photo album somewhere.  Will have to scan one with my scanner sometime and share them  that way.

RIP: Ryan Jones' Husky videos blog

It is official, I have finally decided to dissolve my other blog (Ryan's Husky videos blog) permanently (will basically be merging the 2 blogs together for now).  

In its place, I will be creating a new photography themed blog, which you can check out at http://instantblogsubscribers.com/entry.php?w=rjphotoblog.  I figured the former blog was pretty similar to this blog (except it focused more on huskies and malamutes) and plus this blog offers more variety in videos.  Anyways, for now on all of my animal video related posts will be posted here.  My photography blog is still in its infant stage, but I will add some life to it over the next few months.

Cat Jumps Out of a Box to Scare the Dog

Here is a funny video of a cat startling a boxer dog by jumping out of a box.

This video was pretty funny.  Scared the heck out of him too.  Are your pets easily startled too?

Man runs from relaxing tiger...funny stuff

Have you ever been suprised by an animal.  I remember one time when I was alot younger (back when I was living in Illinois), I went on a camping trip to Door County in Wisconsin and was startled when a raccoon tried to come into the back of the car while setting up camp.  Now, here is a video from Stupidvideos about a man who gets startled by a relaxing tiger.  Did the guy know the tiger was there?  I don't know.  The tiger didn't seem to be phased by the man either, even when he jumped.  Check it out:

Husky Puppy VS Malamute Puppy

Dog park fun anyone?  Here is one featuring a husky puppy and malamute puppy playing together.  I should probably take my dogs to a dog park again sometime, probably when it gets warmer out again.

Dog parks seem to be popular for husky and malamute owners.  Often see people with those kinds of dogs at various dog parks myself, especially during busier hours.

Doggie Movie Spotlight: Snow Dogs

Considering that it is in the middle of winter, one doggie related movie I like to watch sometimes is Snow Dogs.

What Snow Dogs is about:

It is a comedy style movie back in 2002 about a dentist, named Ted Brooks.  It starts out in Miami, Florida where Ted is a successful dentist following in his "father's" footsteps.  Unbeknownst to him is that he is actually adopted and his biological parents are from a small town called, Toketna, Alaska (probably named after Talkeetna, Alaska) and are basically dog sled racers.  Initially, he is a dentist, lives in an apartment in Miami, his "father" has passed away (though his mother is still around) and even seems to hate dogs (most notably the barking poodle next door), and was living an otherwise seemingly comfortable lifestyle.  One day in a major life changing event however, Ted's real mother, Lucy passes away (the movie is not clear on why and how she died or what her story was) and he gets summoned to Alaska to collect on the will Lucy left for him, which turns out to be her cabin in the woods, along with all of her dogs, namely a border collie and 7 rowdy siberian huskies, including one unusually aggressive one, named Demon.  Upon arriving in Alaska, Ted's real adventure begins and faces all kinds of challenges and adversity as he adjusts to the new Alaskan lifestyle, including the very cold winter, a cranky and jealous old man named Thunder Jack (who unbeknownst to Ted is actually his father, James Johnson), unruly siberian huskies (especially demon) to tame, along a Saloon lady (Barb) who soons starts crushing on Ted after arriving in Tolketna.  He also must learn to leave his old lifestyle behind and take on dog sled racing.  I won't say more about the story as I don't want to spoil it for you.

Primary characters in the movie (for the full list of characters, you can read about them at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0281373/fullcredits?ref_=tt_cl_sm#cast):
- Ted Brooks.  He is an African American dentist from Miami, Florida and is the primary protaganist in the movie. After going to Alaska, his life is radically changed and he learns how to become a dog musher.
- Amelia.  She is Ted's adoptive mother from Miami.  She always likes to check in on Ted, especially after going to Alaska.  Unbeknownst to Ted, Amelia was Ted's adoptive mother and his real mother was from Alaska and was deceased.
- Lucy.  She was Ted's biological mother and for unknown reasons, was deceased sometime before the events of Snow Dogs.
- Thunder Jack (aka James Johnson).  Initially he was the antagonist in the movie, being a cranky old mountain man that becomes jealous of Ted after he arrives in Alaska and inherits Lucy's dogs.  Why Lucy didn't give Thunder Jack the huskies (especially Demon), I have no idea, but Ted has them and Thunder Jack wants them (especially Demon) so that he can use them in the upcoming Arctic Challenge sled dog race.  Eventually it is revealed that he is really Ted's father and gradually warms up to Ted and becomes less antagonistic towards him, though he is always willing to buy Ted's dogs off of him.
- Rupert.  Ted's best friend and coworker in Miami.
- Barb.  She is a somewhat firey bar waitress (possibly bar owner) at a saloon in Tolketna and basically becomes Ted's love interest upon arriving in Tolketna.

Noteworthy dogs:
- Nana.  She is a border collie and develops a bond with Ted after he arrives at Lucy's cabin.
- Demon.  He is a siberian husky that has an unusually aggressive personality, especially around Ted.  He has one weakness though: it appears if he can be tamed if you "bite him in the ear".  He seems to be the alpha dog in the husky pack that Ted inherits.
- Other siberian huskies.  In addition to Demon, there are 6 other siberian huskies that Ted inherits too.  I won't get into the details of all of them though.  One husky appears to be a female husky by the way, though most of them appear to be male.  Initially they are aggressive at first around Ted, but they warm up to Ted alot sooner than Demon does.
- Poodle.  This was the yapping dog next door to Ted while he is in Miami.

Things I liked about Snow Dogs:

- Can be a good winter themed movie to watch featuring dogs
- Who doesn't like siberian huskies?  Let alone 7 of them
- It is a comedy adventure

Things I did not like about the movie:
- Can be a little cheesy and childish at times.
- There do seem to be some plot holes in the movie.  For example, what was the full story behind Lucy and Thunder Jack?
- The movie is not really filmed in Alaska.  Instead it was filmed in Alberta, Canada.  Going to the real Alaska would have been nice.  Though Canadian rockies in Alberta does have a northern style feel and can feel like you are in Alaska, especially during the winter.

Tidbits for thought (contains spoilers)

1. Did you know that much of the movie was filmed in Canmore Alberta?  Probably explains the scene later in the movie where Amelia arrives on the scene in "Alaska" and the taxi driver seems to want Canadian money (probably bad acting skills on his part).  Though Alberta and British Columbia are not too far away from Alaska (you could probably get there pretty quickly from Calgary or Vancouver via airplane).  You can also drive to Alaska from Canada, but it is definitely a multiday trip considering that Alberta and British Columbia are huge.  Of course, Alberta is much closer to Alaska than Mia

2. Siberian huskies as aggressive dogs!?  In the movie, when Ted first meets his new dogs, while Nana is generally friendly around Ted, the siberian huskies try to attack him (though they are not first introduced until Ted opens up a food cabinet that a husky was hiding in).  Then you also have Demon that is even more aggressive around Ted.  He doesn't hesitate to snarl at Ted, chase him up a tree or even snap at Ted at times.  While the other huskies warm up to Ted early on, it is not till towards the end of the movie when Demon finally warms up to Ted.  In my experience with Siberian huskies, the vast majority of the ones I have seen are rather friendly around people (even total strangers) and are not aggressive.  Here is a video on youtube that illustrates this point:

(more tidbits will be added later)

Dog show fun at the Evergreen State Fair 2013

Do you like dogs?  At the Evergreen State fair (which usally runs late August to Labor Day), in addition to the usual animal exhibits (cows, sheep, goats, pigs, horses, chickens, rabbits, and waterfowl), they also have a dog show section where people can show off their dogs and compete for prizes (not sure really how it works since I have never signed up my dogs for a dog show).  Here is a short collection of videos I took at the fair.  Multiple dog breeds, including golden retrievers, black labs, yellow labs, samoyed, collies, australian shepards, corgis, a bernese mountain dogs, siberian husky, and even small dogs.

Post by Ryan Jones.

I went to the fair again back in 2014, but the dog show seemed to be a bit more subdued when I was there, so I didn't get any pictures or videos, plus I was on a timeframe too.  I also went to the Puyallup fair in 2014 but they didn't have a dog show when I was there, instead they had more of a cat show instead.

By the way, I secretly want to go to a more formal dog show sometime this year given the opportunity, that would be fun.

Tortoise Wins by a Hare Clip

Here is a funny version of the Tortoise and the Hare, Bugs Bunny style.  You know what is funny about this one: Bugs dresses up like the tortoise and his "friends" think he is the tortoise and try to sabotage his race.  Now that is what I call, poetic justice.

Cats jumping on the counter

Here is a funny video I saw on Stupidvideos about cats jumping on a counter only to have quite a suprise.  I don't own cats myself, but they can definitely be curious and michievious creatures sometimes.  Even funny to watch too

What was your favorite animal Superbowl 2015 commercial

Well, another Superbowl has come and gone.  I was rooting for the Seahawks (I live in the Seattle area after all) but sadly they were defeated by the Patriots.  Anyways, there were many different super bowl ads commercials and I thought I would share some of the animal related ones and see which ones were your all favorites.  Note: I don't own any of the videos below, but I thought I would share some of them with you.

1.  Mercedes-Benz Fable Comercial (basically the Tortisse and the Hare)

This was a funny commercial.  It revisits the old tale of the Tortoise and the Hare (turtle and rabbit) competing in a race where despite the rabbit's speed, the turtle manages to defeat the rabbit.  In this 3D animated version, the tortoise is losing at first, but then stumbles across a Mercedes and lo and behold, he manages to catch up to the rabbit and win.  Liked the other animals in the commercial too. Technically the tortoise cheated in the race (considering that he was using a car), but that was probably more to show off he new cars Mercedes-Benz has.  By the way, the Looney Tunes has done at least similar Tortoise and the Hare story, where Bugs Bunny races a Tortoise and the tortoise manages to come out on top.

2. Budwiser "Lost Dog" Commercial

Although this commercial is not quite about beer, it features a laborador retriever puppy from some horse ranch that accidently get lost after venturing into the back of a truck (much like how it is in Snow Buddies when the golden retriever puppies accidently end up in Alaska after getting trapped the back of an ice cream truck) and ends up going on a "Home ward bound" style journey back to his farm, while braving the elements, hungry wolves, and even befriending some horses to help him on the way back to the farm.  By the way, this is the happy version of events.  Apparently there was a banned commercial, where another dogs gets lost, returns home only to find out that he was sold on a website.

Here is the other version (from Youtube):

GoDaddy’s Super Bowl XLIX 2015 Commercial Mocks Budweiser’s Lost Puppy Dog Sentimental Ad

I have to admit that I feel sorry for the puppy.  I have a golden retriever myself and I would be happy to take the puppy off his owner's hands if he didn't want the pup.

More videos will be shared over time.

Other commercials worth mentioning includes:

- Ted 2 (yes, another Ted movie is in the works),
- The video where a bunch of golden retrievers are driving and barking at the mailman (was also on last year)
- Commercial featuring kittens and others.

Which commercials were your favorite?  Least favorite?  Feel free to share your thoughts.
