Lulu & The Bean Present: Backyard Boing Boing

¡Hola, fellow coffee aficionados! This is The Bean, hosting my very first Sunday video presentation! This is a little something we are calling Backyard Boing Boing, because it is mostly me going boing-boing around Lulu, although we do get in a little bit of chasing. ¡Mirá!

Lulu’s Life Tips: Humans Are Fun, But For A Proper Game Of Chase, You Need A Dog

Hello friendlies! Lulu here with another life tip! As you may have guessed, this week it’s got to do with my new doggy sibling from the shelter. We’re still not completely sure what his name is going to be, but rumor has it he may be getting called Java.

Lulu’s Playtime Tips, Part 2: Sneak Attacks

Hello friendlies! Lulu here again with my assistant Penny for another playtime tip! This week we are picking up right where he left off last week, with Penny seizing the high ground and calling for a short break, ostensibly so we can rest for a minute.

Lulu’s Life Tips: Small Does Not Mean Slow

Caturday Matinee: Kitty Christmas Staycation

Charlee: “Hello, everybody! Charlee and Chaplin here!”
Chaplin: “Some of you may have noticed we weren’t around much the last week or so. That’s because Mama and Dada went to visit relatives for Christmas and failed to take us with them.”
Charlee: “Which is okay, because we don’t like to travel.”
Chaplin: “How do you know? Have you tried it?”
Charlee: “No, I haven’t tried it, but I know I don’t like it.”
Chaplin: “Anyway, we thought we might have free rein over the house while they were gone, but they arranged with a human friend to come in and feed us and play with us twice a day, so we didn’t get to throw any big parties.”
Charlee: “Which is okay, because we don’t like big parties. And no, Chaplin, I haven’t been to any big parties, but I know I don’t like them.”
Chaplin: “Okay, sure.”
Charlee: “To look in on us and give us treats while they were gone, Mama and Dada set up a Petzi in the bedroom and a motion-detecting camera in the hallway.”
Chaplin: “So they were spying on us.”
Charlee: “They sure were. When the motion-detecting camera noticed us going by or making noise, it sent them alerts on their magic communication devices, and recorded thirty seconds of video.”
Chaplin: “Since we’re in the videos, we decided to claim ownership and put a few of the best ones together into a clip of what we did for our Christmas vacation from the humans.”
Charlee: “Roll that clip show, Chaplin!”
