A Day in the Life of a Dog – In A Colorado Minute (Whiskey Business 5)

One day this week, Whiskey Dog wore a GoPro camera to show you what a day in the life of a dog looks like: from getting up in the morning to an afternoon in the Arapaho Bend Natural Area and eventually back to bed, with lots of adventures and routine in-between.

I was inspired to have her shoot such a video this week because with all the unsettling turmoil in the world, like terrorists attacks and the ridiculous, but frightening new US president, I was feeling envy towards her simple life. With all the stress surrounding so many of us, don’t you wish you could spend a day in the life of a dog?

One minute makes for a very short day. I tried to include all the highlights (getting up, breakfast, checking on the yard, getting dressed, driving around, fetching a ball, jumping in the Poudre River, walking on ice, running some more, swimming, doing tricks to entertain the humans, walking home, waiting for dinner, steak (!) dinner and going back to bed. But all the highlights are naturally very short in this version.

Please let me know in the comments if you would like to see a longer, slower version of A Day in the Life of a Dog… or if you’d like to see a (longer) Whiskey Guide to Arapaho Bend Natural Area (with lots of more running, jumping, swimming, fetching…).

    • Hi Elizabeth!
      So nice to see you over here. Comments on my website are my absolute favorite. They seem to be less fleeting than social media comments. So thank you especially much! I’m so happy you liked the video. And yes, the world would be a better and more fun place…
      Hope you’re having a super weekend!
      xx Luci
