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: Sometimes You Just Can’t Decide What You Want To Do (And That’s Okay)

Hello friendlies! Lulu here, with another life tip! This is a simple one: Sometimes you just can’t decide what you want to do, and that’s okay. This especially happens when you have too many choices, like when Mama falls asleep ten minutes into something they’re watching together and so Dada has to stop it but then he has to figure out which zombie movie or superhero movie or science fiction movie or horror movie or action movie or maybe an episode of “Battlebots” to watch but he has to make sure it’s not one Mama might actually want to see and so he ends up watching nothing. Or something along those lines. For me, it’s more like when there are so many interesting things to smell or dig up out in the yard that I can’t settle on just one. Check it out!

Lulu’s Life Tips: Fetching is Optional

Hello friendlies! Lulu here, with another life tip! This time it’s about fun. Now, some people might try to tell you that what you think is fun is not fun, and that what you think is not fun is fun. But remember, fun is whatever you think it is. Take fetch. This is where somebody throws something and you go get it and bring it back to them. That might be fun for some, but maybe you don’t want to go through the whole “fetch” process. Maybe you just like to run and grab what’s thrown and then nibble on it. Maybe you just want to do it a few times and then run off and stick your snout in the ivy. My point is, you may feel pressure to accept somebody else’s idea of “fun” just to go along with them, but take it from me, you don’t have to. Fetching is optional. Check it out:
