WE HAVE REACHED 60%!

6 comments

Wow, you guys! Thank you SO MUCH! I can't believe we got to 60% so quickly ... and now I'm really glad daughter and I got the special video done this weekend. :-)

So just by way of explanation ... I knew that whatever I did for my 60% video had to have 6 pups in it (in keeping with the Pup-O-Meter theme.) But I also wanted it to be ... different. Completely different, if you will. 

I had originally thought of doing a "Frequently Asked Questions" format, with the puppies as the interviewers. But the questions weren't exactly rolling in. Then I thought maybe I'd just have the puppies ask me silly questions, like "What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?"

And that's when this genius idea hit me.

Enjoy. (And please feel free to share if the spirit moves you.) Thanks again for all your support ... I couldn't do it without you!

      LOL, Sharon, I hope it gave her a smile. The puppies are awfully cute. And Nora was a very kind and gentle "Puppyteer."

      Thank you for the laughter. That was ridiculous with puppies = win.

      No puppy was harmed in the making of this movie, I hope.
