Dinner and a movie

I shot this movie Friday evening. The herd's dinner was interrupted by Smooch 
barking at something invisible to me but clearly seen and heard by everybody else.



YouTube tells me that the video is blocked in some countries because of a copyright claim
on the soundtrack. My apologies to readers in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Germany, Kazakhstan, 
Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Mongolia, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan.

  1. I wish I could watch your YouTube videos, but because I have young children around, I have to keep the safety mode on. It blocks you every time. I didn't have any trouble with Vimeo when you used to use that. Bummer.

    1. I'm sorry...Vimeo seems to have seriously cracked down on the music that they would allow, so unless I go back to silent movies, YouTube is is for awhile.

    2. what about singing the tune yourself or whistling it in pure cowgirl fashion?

  2. How do you do that? It's all so terrific -- music & animals all doin' it together perfectly. I hope you laughed as loud as I did at the part where Alan shakes his head!

  4. So glad it wasn't blocked in Canada. Great movie. Did you ever find out what caused the ruckus? All is well, it seems everybody back to supper. No worries. Animals do communicate with each other and I find that impressive. Birds to cats and dogs even.

    1. I suspect the ruckus was a noisy vehicle on the far-off road. Or maybe a cow farted in the woods?

    2. Oh, but you didn't have to travel that far! I could have offered you the same "privilege" in the (apparently) only European country they're blocking, Germany... [mumble grumble]

  7. In the part where Alan shakes his head to the brrrrrrr, what is rolling on the ground. Or am I seeing things?

  8. That song is quite subversive! If they allow it to be heard in the ---stan countries the next thing you know *everyone* will demand supper. And a cheerful supper at that. I don't blame them at all...
    LaurieB - still snapping my fingers and singing "Suppertime" even though I'm just making breakfast, heh. Thanks for the lively wake-me-up.

  10. High Alert at 7MSN. Thankfully the Border Patrol was there so Alan could take his bath unmolested.

    1. Alan is the only who is allowed to share Hank's food. Go figure.

  13. This is unbearably cute! And I'm grateful for living in an non-istan country … the music is spot on.

  14. Damn, a most excellent job of combining music and action. Makes me want to submit this to some kind of contest. This is just so well done.

  15. What a catchy song, got my head bopping back and forth as Smooch alerted and everyone stared with antennas locked and ready!! But then all became serene and it was back to Supper Time!! Oh gosh I laughed so hard at Alan taking his roll in the dirt, and the music matched his every wiggle! So well choreographed, could you quit your day job NOW and do these videos for an internet living??

    How did you time the music so well that Alan's ears and the "brrr" sound were at the same time?! I laughed so loud at that part!!
    I don't know where you find these pieces of music, but they are so fun!

    I love how Alan freezes at the beginning and even stops mid-chew!! ha ha!!

  17. Isn't that the song from You're a Good Man Charlie Brown? Makes me curious about the proceedings in the blocked countries.

    Anyway ... Smooch has a really big bark!
