This weekend I watched the movie UP. I think it was one of the worst of the Pixar movies, I’ve seen… but that’s to say that it was still very entertaining and well worth seeing. I cried and laughed (in that order mostly). And for the rest of the weekend, I’ve been saying things in Dug-speak (the dog). I bet I annoyed my wife with a lot of, “I so very do want to have dinner. I will help make the dinner. It will be a great dinner.”
The other dog-related thing I wanted to share is this video below. It’s only 40 seconds and I’ve probably seen it a dozen times. The dog’s eye shifts get me every time.
My wife saw that on America’s Funniest Home Video’s… which shocking still has a television show. Go figure.
