Carm meets her brother, Ted

Carm joined our family in 2004, as a three month-old-pup. There were two pups left in the litter at the time, and they were pretty much identical, except one's ears were floppy and the other upright. Both were cute, so we took the upright 'model'. Since then, I often wondered what became of the other pup. Last year, while hiking Signal Hill, I ran into a dog that looked exactly like Carm. I spoke with the owner and, sure enough, the dog came from the same place. It was Carm's brother, Ted. I did get the person's email address, and we swapped a couple of pictures, but that was it. Yesterday, I took another hike on Signal Hill with Carm and my son. Before leaving, I sent an email to the dog's owner, inviting them to meet us on the trail. It was a long shot, but they got the message and showed up! Here's the video...

When Carm is hungry, she moves fast - like a little squirrel.

Feet Fly Fast

The movement of Carm's little feet is exaggerated here, by her long shadow. She walks fast, like a little insect.

Ears Up, Ears Down

Shot and edited on iPhone, then uploaded to YouTube. This time, it only took a minute to process, presumably because it is much shorter that Fun With Carm, which took many hours to process.

Spin again

Carm gets into a total spin for her supper.

Fun With Carm

Three videos, shot on the iPhone and edited together using the ReelDirector app. Sent from iPhone to YouTube. However, it took YouTube about 10 hours to process the video. I had almost given up on it. Strange, and not acceptable, if you are blogging from a live event.

Ball game

Carm loves a good game of ball! But don't worry... the ball is not inflated, so it's very soft.

Ken flirts with Carm

We have no idea if Carm is signalling her pleasure or disgust at being kissed behind the ears, but, either way, the result is funny.

Spin dogtor

Carm is fast, like a squirrel, especially at feeding time. If you make a circular motion with the bowl of food, she will spin... over and over... until you get dizzy just watching her.

Cute co-pilot

Carm loves to come along for a ride in the car. No, she won't jump out. She's very sensible. Besides, my left arm has a good grip on her. Shot and uploaded with iPhone.
