    The Puppies Go To The Beach

    December 3, 2019


    (light cheerful music) – [Narrator] The service dogs in training from Doggy Do Good have a big day ahead of them. It’s beach day! The sun, the surf, and boundless distractions that could cause any of these dogs to flunk out of Service Dog School. This is Puppy Prep. ^(light cheerful music) None of the pups are more excited to smell that ocean air ^than eight-month-old Golden Retriever, Luke. He’s been hanging out by the beach since he was only a couple months old. ^His half-sister, Remmy, is also excited, maybe too excited. It’s all right for her to take a second and adjust to the new sights and smells, but when it comes time for work, Remmy’s going to need to focus. For these puppies, the first order of business at any new location is to sample the local grass. While they’re not supposed to chew on the foliage, it’s easy for the pups to sneak a bite when the trainers have their backs turned. And the trainers turn their back frequently. Having this many puppies around draws attention, and people are excited to learn about the service dogs. But Nelly and Remmy are taking this chance to mess around. (dogs barking) The dogs aren’t supposed to go on the sand after 10:00, and while special exception can be made for service animals, there’s no shortage of other activities by the ocean, like the playground. The playground offers a multitude of different surfaces, sounds, and experiences. All of this builds confidence, getting the puppies ready for anything. ^First one up, six-month-old Chocolate Lab, Benelli. Climbing on rocks and walking on sand may appear simple, but it’s actually building the puppy’s comfort on a variety of surfaces. Wherever Benelli goes, she needs to be focused not on where she’s standing but on what her owner may need. – Good girl. – [Narrator] After breezing through the different surfaces, it’s time for something that will really disorient her. – Good girl. – [Narrator] The slide. While Benelli’s future owners may never actually take her down a slide, it’s important she has confidence to handle all kinds of new experiences. At first, she’s nervous, but with some coaxing and the promise of treat… – Good girl! – [Narrator] …even a puppy like Benelli can find her courage. Now back on firm land, the trainer is sure to praise Benelli up, building a connection in the puppy’s mind between bravery and reward. Fresh off the excitement of the slide, Trainer Paul tosses his keys to ensure Benelli still knows it’s work time. – Good, get it. – [Narrator] And she happily does her job. – Benelli, great, get it. Benelli, get it. Good girl. – [Narrator] There’s still one more slide for Benelli to attempt. (dramatic drumbeats) The spiral slide. That is, if she can get up to it. With a bit of a running start… – Benelli, jump. – [Narrator] …she makes the leap. – Good girl. – [Narrator] Her lesson from the other slide has her excited to try this one. Having never seen them before five minutes ago, slides are now simple for the six-month-old Chocolate Lab. – Woo hoo hoo! Good girl!
    Good girl. – [Narrator] Back with the dogs in down stay, ^Karen tries to refocus Remmy. She tries to get the Golden to heel, and focus in, but the eight-month-old won’t settle down. This isn’t good. Remmy’s future owner will count on her, day in and day out. And, it looks like Remmy’s lack of focus is starting to spread. Luke, get back! Come on, Karen’s trying to focus on Remmy. Kaya, are you serious? Come on! – Kaya, no! – [Narrator] All three Goldens have the sillies now, even usually dependable Luke. Kaya has to refocus, and quick. It’s her turn to walk the playground. ^The eight-month-old enjoys jumping on different surfaces. – Good girl! Good girl. Come on, let’s go. – [Narrator] The straight slide. – Good girl! Good girl, Kaya! Good girl! – [Narrator] And when it’s time for the spiral slide, what was a tough jump for Benelli is an easy hop for Kaya. But, what goes up must come down, and Kaya’s confused how that’s supposed to happen. When Sandy, the owner of Doggie Do Good, leads the way, Kaya eventually figures it out. She’s immediately praised for her bravery. – Good girl! Good girl! – [Narrator] A second attempt down the slide… (laughs) Oh, look at you. Oh, no. Good try, Kaya.
    Good try. – Good girl. Good girl, Kaya. – [Narrator] But, what’s important is that Kaya’s conquered her fear, and admirably so. Back in the down stay, it looks like Remy has finally calmed… Oh. Relax, Remmy.
    It’s just a bird. All right.
    Good girl, Remmy. Thank goodness you’re finally starting to show some self-control, otherwise today could have been the day you failed at… Oh no. – [Trainer] Remmy! – [Narrator] Breaking from a down stay to this degree is a bad sign. With Karen working with Kaya, Paul has to leave the dogs to find where Remmy ran off. Even though they’re unsupervised, they don’t dare to break; no one wants the fate that’s about to befall Remmy. Lockdown. Remmy now has to think about what she’s done, and hope it doesn’t mean expulsion. ^Now, it’s Luke’s turn to take a lap around the playground. – Good boy. – [Narrator] His first challenge is the rocking horse. Karen is trying to get Luke to jump over it, in preparation for future awkward spaces. – Stay. – [Narrator] Luke is not having it. – Good boy.
    Jump over it. – [Narrator] He hasn’t had problems of bravery in the past, so this is a new issue. – Over it.
    Nope. Over it.
    Good boy, come on. – [Narrator] Eventually, our hero figures it out. – Good, good! Good boy! – [Narrator] And Karen is sure to reward his courage. – Good job! Good boy, let’s go! – [Narrator] If Luke shows the same hesitation on the slide, then… – Good boy! – [Narrator] …well, nevermind. – Good job, Luke! Good boy! – [Narrator] Looks like after only a couple attempts, he’s already a pro. – Good job!
    Good boy! – [Narrator] Good job, buddy. – Good job. – [Narrator] When Luke returns to down stay, he finds Deacon is still getting used to his harness. He’s not quite sure why he can’t flip all the way over on his back. Paul straightens him out, and it’s back to down stay. ^Okay, Remmy. ^You’ve had a tough day so far, so time to redeem yourself on the playground. First up is the rocking horse that Luke struggled with. – Come on.
    Good girl. Over it. – [Narrator] Just like with her half-brother, it’s a matter of confidence. – Let’s go. – [Narrator] And it suddenly looks like Remmy’s lost most of hers. The culprit? The pirate ship steering wheel. – Just need a second. – [Narrator] Notice how her tail is tucked between her legs? So do the trainers. They’re hyper-aware of the pup’s attitude, and this is a huge signal from Remmy. Karen gets down on Remmy’s level and starts feeding her treats. She pets her and praises her, trying to show Remmy she’s safe. Remmy then has to pass by the wheel several more times, ensuring the dog has confronted her fear. – [Karen] Good girl. – [Narrator] If Karen can get Remmy to sniff the wheel or be still next to it, that’s going to be a great indication that Remmy’s making progress. – Good girl! – [Narrator] Eventually, a sniff. – [Karen] Good job! – [Narrator] And after a few more laps, her tail starts to wag again. Remmy’s done extremely well, and with so much excitement already had on the playground, the slide can wait for another day. ^Back on the grass, the undeniable Mr. Pip ^finds himself in an embarrassing situation. – [Trainer] Mr. Pip. – [Narrator] Because he is by far the worst at down stay, Mr. Pip has to be tied up, to the other dogs. Luke seems confused why he has to babysit, but he doesn’t mind. It gives him something to watch as he snacks on the grass. – [Trainer] Luke, leave it. Luke, release. – [Narrator] Finally, some respect. Unbelievable. Chin up, Mr. Pip. You’re still a hero in our hearts. (Mr. Pip whines) ^Another hero from Doggie Do Good is recent graduate Sammy. Sammy transitioned to his forever family only five months ago, but his bond with handler Bryce has been immediate. Sammy helps Bryce with several diagnoses, including generalized anxiety disorder, ADHD, inflammatory bowel disease, and bipolar disorder. One way Sammy aids Bryce is during Bryce’s regular blood draws. Before going into an appointment, Sammy gives Bryce hugs and pressure, helping to prepare the boy for the anxiety the needles cause. During the draws, Sammy gives Bryce constant pressure to help him feel more comfortable. Sammy knows Bryce isn’t in distress now, but the 18-month-old lab checks in constantly, making sure, if Bryce ever needs him, he’s there. While Bryce’s family had always had animals, at first, they weren’t sure about adding a service dog. The support that Sammy’s provided in only his first few months, however, has made it all worth it. Someday, the puppies in training will have similar bonds with their owners and be just as important to a family as Sammy is. Back with the student pups, it’s time for a long walk on the beach. ^Or at least next to it. ^Remmy’s had a big day, so trainer Paul takes this walk very slow. Whenever Remmy begins to pull away or move in a different direction, the trainer stops. This teaches Remmy to stay focused. During a heel, the puppies need to be paying attention to the handler constantly, not drifting away on their own line. – [Paul] Good girl. – [Narrator] Eventually, Remmy starts to do better. On the stairs, heel is even more difficult for these pups. Dogs want to be on even ground, and prefer bolting up and down steps. The people they’ll someday aid, however, may need help with stairs, so it’s important the puppies learn patience. To end her day, Paul works with Remmy on one of her special abilities: hug. As difficult as the day has been for the young Golden, it’s important to remember that someday she’ll be a huge comfort to a lucky family. It’s going to take work and patience, but it’s clear it’ll be worth it. – Release. Good. – [Narrator] Some dogs can become nervous on the pier, as the spaces between the uneven surfaces can be uncomfortable under their paws. ^Not our Mr. Pip, though. ^He even finds the time to get in some of his best down stay work to date. Good boy, Mr. Pip. As the day winds down, Paul begins ^to test a special skill with Kaya: steady. Steady allows people with mobility issues to put pressure on a dog, to sit down, stand up, or just regain their balance. It’s one of Deacon’s specialties, and might someday be Kaya’s as well. Knowing her eight-month-old joints are still developing, Paul puts only the lightest of pressure over her legs. Once she’s grown, she’ll be able to take much more weight, and may even wear a harness like Deacon. At the end of the day, some dogs took steps forward, while others, steps back. For all these puppies, though, it’s still too soon to tell who will flunk out, and who will graduate Puppy Prep. (light cheerful music)

    Driving RV On Beach & Dogsitting

    November 24, 2019


    well good afternoon everybody you knew I
    had to bring Miranda down here because this particular spot has a lot of
    memories every RV I’ve had has Park right here in this spot with this view
    of the Wishkah River out here and not necessarily good memories but not bad
    memories either things were not always as comfortable and easy for me living on
    the road certainly prior to YouTube so i will say this spot does not have signage
    that says no overnight parking anymore so as far as I know it’s still city of
    Aberdeen and still 72 hours tops or just one night if you’re like me because
    we’re leaving today and it’s gonna be a rare day here in
    western Washington we’re gonna hit 80 in June so I say we go to the ocean yeah
    right I do have the leveling jacks up on this side because it slopes so much so
    it’s kind of cool to get level on the curb still can’t get jacks to come
    outside here his his memories are a little different than mine poor guy
    hey let’s go to the ocean it’s gonna be a nice day at the ocean and there we go
    welcome to the city of Ocean Shores Washington which only comes alive when
    it’s crazy hot and Olympia Tacoma in Seattle and everybody comes here
    now they do more or less have one of the shortest windows of being open for
    season in the entire country hey I’ve been to three oceans in the
    last year Pacific Ocean yeah I’ve been to all three this year Wow well in the
    last year I’ve been escaping the heat my whole life by coming to Ocean Shores
    this McDonald’s off to the right dad used to take us there back in the day
    when you could get orange sherbert ice cream on a cone remember the old orange
    ice cream soft-serve on a cone then we switched to chocolate dip cones yep
    there certainly aren’t too many beaches that you can literally drive your
    vehicle or your RV up onto in the country Ocean Shores is one of them we
    got some gravel right now and then it kind of morphs into this
    sandy mix of soft and hard and you just got to be careful
    you just got to be careful I like to stay on the dark brown wets and I
    actually don’t like this soft step that I’m going through right now so don’t
    slow down in this at all don’t even take your foot off the gas until you get to
    the other side here okay now I will turn this way this is the sand I like this
    dark stuff is safe that light stuff off to the right not so much okay look out little seagull I’m gonna park
    right here for a little bit we should be safe and yes is crazy windy and chilly
    and I regret wearing a sleeveless shirt right now but it’s the ocean
    welcome to Ocean Shores so because of the blowing wind and sand and salt in
    the air I’m not gonna pop the slides out today just to kind of keep the the
    motors and track clean but yep this is what we’re driving on you know it’s it’s
    pretty hard pack as long as it stays moist from the tides coming in and out
    everybody’s over there in long pants and Seahawks jackets I’m out here in a
    sleeveless shirt and shorts yeah ah Pacific Ocean all kinds of shells that’s
    that’s a crab leg there oh and there’s the rest of mr. crabby dude what
    happened oh okay oh my gosh I’m so cold that windchill 84 degrees an hour away
    in Olympia 53 degrees here at Ocean Shores I’m going to turn the heater on legals like lying around there we go
    we’re on the beach oh yeah you excited to go play in the sand jacks man yeah
    okay we will first off I’m not gonna turn the heater on I preheated the oven
    and I’m gonna put a health pie in the oven
    that way it’ll kind of help keep us warm through the vents you wanna go outside
    okay let’s put your harness on all right buddy where’s your harness what do you
    mean you know no show me what do you think is it too windy you could try it
    you gotta try everything once buddy you can’t always be a sourpuss Jack’s you
    got to get your paws in the sand I know it’s cold I know man but it’s sand I’ll

    treats all right buddy oh yeah ocean pizzas the best kind of pizza pie we also still a little warm yep yep
    actually I’m gonna eat inside you know the ocean shores here though one thing
    and I think I mentioned this before you can’t stay here overnight unless you are
    awake all night so that’s why they say you know camping but if you’re awake
    outside if State Patrol rolls by and they see a campfire on the beach right
    here or something and they see you outside or they can see you through the
    window with the light on you can stay here overnight at the beach as well you
    know just got to be mindful and that’s why that rules there’s a Titan come in
    and people don’t pay attention they put tents out here and everything and it’s
    for safety after I eat and after Jackson I hang out with a little bit for a
    little bit I will show you what we’ll do for the night but I do want to test out
    these meaty tires on the bike you know it’s windy let me first get
    back to you this is what it looks like in here without the slide out Jax’s got
    his seat we got some Netflix going on I’m on season three of Breaking Bad and
    I did close all the curtains just to make it a little more dark in here so
    that I can see the screen better but I would be outside if it were nice and
    sunny and warm and not so windy and cold so we’ll do this instead and then we’ll
    hop on the bike all right buddy I’m gonna go ride around you’d be good keep
    an eye on the rvk don’t we put some birds on the screen for you all right
    have fun I’ll be back people are starting to
    leave I’m not sure if they know something I don’t know but yeah it’s got
    my hat cinch dog we’re switched to super wide just so I can capture a little more
    of this excited to try the bike hour it won’t be like I’m gonna film all the
    time while I’m riding this thing cuz it’s a little more work to carry the
    camera and I kind of want to hands-on on the handlebars all the time but you know
    what she feels really good on the sand I mean really good wow she likes the
    sand if I lose my hat out here it’s gonna
    blow away somewhere for sure whoa awesome Mike is ridiculously fun maybe I
    need to invest in a kite perhaps I do go to a lot of windy places excuse me what
    are you doing you’re not batting the TV are you no you
    need to keep your little paws ease off the TV though okay Oh butts so I have no
    intention of staying awake all night at the beach I’m gonna head on over to the
    Quinault Beach Resort and Casino over here because they have overnight parking
    with some perks they made some changes that used to be free in the offseason
    and then $10 on season and now I believe it’s $10 just flat rate weekdays any
    time of the year and $15 a night on the weekends to dry camp on the beach
    but like I said there are some other perks you get to stay in Ocean Shores so
    that’s cool so I head over there alright and here’s
    the entrance to the Quinault Beach Resort and Casino / RV park they do
    still offer the $2.99 Olympics special early bird eggs breakfast I may try that
    in the moanin all right now I won’t get parked and get comfortable I got a lot
    of editing to do I still have not edited the wynoochee stuff the video that you
    will have already seen by now basically yeah speed limit 21 get it cuz blackjack
    yeah not too busy at all it is tough to get level here you can see you can you
    can kind of see what’s going on that slopes to the middle here kind of like
    one of the worst RV parks ever I’m gonna back in because these sites over here a
    little more level then I’m gonna unhook the ebike again then I got to go to the
    office and pay and I will let you know how that goes actually walked up there
    to register it I’m not going to take the ebike off this time
    yeah so $15 and this is what you get I know a lot of people have been griping
    about it a lot lately but it’s a secure approved spot to park put your thing up
    in the window and then this is what you get but it’s better than you might think
    we actually have our own private access to the beach down here it’s about a 1/2
    mile trail through here sorry just realized I still had it on
    super why you’re getting part of the microphone in my previous shots that’s
    funny so you know the sand and everything caked and covered in the RV
    that’s all just extras just part of the experience I didn’t bring an extra
    battery anyway go spend a little more time with the beach they’ll be back in
    the RV tonight and good morning I slept super super well last night I’m
    surprised maybe the sound of the wind and the waves just reminded
    so much at home that I slept like a baby just fed Jax I haven’t even made any
    coffee yet I’m gonna walk up to the casino restaurant up here make sure they
    still got the Olympics special going on cuz I’m sterve and starving mmm
    what a deal right man yeah time to leave Grays Harbor County you do get sunshine
    and solar here like I was getting like 40 amps of solar in this overcast
    because the sun’s there it’s very very filtered so I do have to get back into
    Thurston County tomorrow for an important appointment but I want to
    check out this one DNR campsite recreation area before and
    spend the night there because I can’t boondock in the city
    right okay we’ll get out of here it’s starting to
    clear up it gets really congested and Hoquiam in Aberdeen just like
    bottlenecks but now it’s opening up two lanes highway 8 going east here we go
    yeah I’ve been here before it’s been a few years but I have I’ve never actually
    tried to overnight park here at this little area you do need a Discover Pass
    it’s a fee area but it doesn’t say you can’t overnight it doesn’t say it’s only
    day use so in this case I’m I’m gonna give it a shot it is right next to the
    highway but I can’t park in any other Walmart’s nearby and actually it
    probably is mostly just day use because of the boat launch into the SATs op
    River which is quite low the boat launch ends here the waters yeah yeesh
    somebody got scary right out of their sandals Hey these parts here in
    Washington State mostly got to worry about mountain lions there can be
    Cougars and bears out here especially along the river those are those are the
    things I worry about some of the reasons why I don’t wear headphones when I’m
    near a nice river or something I’ve got all my videos edited just need to get
    them uploaded today you’re taking this pretty well Jax what do you think you
    think it’s okay what’s going on are we are we dog sitting Oh timber what’d you
    think of my big kitty hims a big boy huh yeah you pretty chill with this puppy
    okay you guys just keep your distance and everybody’s cool okay what a kook
    girl can I have this we’re using that Kinect I have it you weren’t using it
    well you wanted that one actually oh yeah okay I’ll keep it let’s see if Jax
    wants it it smells like do gee dad it smells like no I don’t want it guess what everybody wouldn’t be honest
    with you it was not a good idea to attempt to overnight at that location
    even though it doesn’t say no overnight parking my instinct was right it is a
    day use area and I had a sheriff come by to remind me even though it’s fish and
    wildlife a great Harbor sheriff came by it’s he told me it’s his job to notify
    people so he does this a lot he comes to that place at night and tells people you
    got to move on you got to get out of here he woke me up I was like man it’s
    gonna take me about an hour to have a cup of coffee and put all the slides in
    and get ready to go he’s like yeah that’s ok manage letting you know so I
    am passing that information on to you that little spot and SATs ought Brady
    yeah it’s not good for overnight so many of you have noticed and pointed out the
    blank spot where I ever move decals on parts of the RV and you probably want to
    know more about that and I’m gonna leave you in suspense you don’t have to wait
    long check out my very next video also I gave
    the other ebike to a friend who could use it and I’m gonna keep the folding

    What happens when we leave on the boat.. (Dogs Home Alone)

    August 16, 2019


    Hey Chels What you doing? Looking at recipes for dinner. Recipes, huh? You wouldn’t, uh, happen to know what day it was or anything like that. Would you? Well… I think it might be… What’s up guys and welcome back to another episode of super cooper SUNDAYYY Good boy Coop, what are you doing? You’re waiting for dinner too – you’re hungry? I have no food You’re that hungry? Oh my goodness. Koda’s here sniffing my ear. What’s up, buddy? What’s up guys? And welcome back. This week, we have a fun episode planned I’m actually excited for this and this could be the first time that Chelsea has been involved in this type of sneakiness. So last time we did this I was the only one that was home, but, uh you guys may remember from last week – the slip n slide episode – Cooper left me a little surprise. Roll the clip. What can he – so he can see right here he can see that we’re here Well, he can see the corner of the tarp, but he can’t tell what else is going on – show you something. What? Just gotta come here You’re in trouble – I don’t know we might just have to cancel this episode Oh no So Did he do an f you poo? Who did it? I think he pee pee’d too. Coopie come here. Who did it? Cooper who did that? Who did that? Who’s a naughty boy – Cooper. That wasn’t funny Cooper It wasn’t nice that you did that. It was not funny at all Look, he’s still guilty Technically, we don’t know for sure that Cooper did that Technically, we don’t know 100%. We know judging by the size of the gift that it was probably him This back here is my office where I work all day and for the most part we kind of have this invisible barrier that they know they’re not supposed to come through Cooper will sometimes, especially in the morning when he and Chelsea get up and he wants to come downstairs and see me and that’s fine. Koda the barrier is especially solid and it makes me feel bad because Koda’s the one that wants to see me the most but he just drops hair everywhere and it gets on the PC and causes issues and stuff. So Technically Koda won’t even go in the office half the time he’s like – he knows he’s not supposed to be in there, Cooper doesn’t really listen to the rules all the time So we have a pretty good suspicion that it’s Cooper that keeps doing this but today we’re going to be taking the boat out and we’re gonna find out exactly who the mystery pooper is. So check this out guys, we have two go pros set up on the go fetch mounts so we’re gonna mount these bad boys on the boys. I’ve got another camera set up over here, i’ve got a camera set up here in the back and then I’m also gonna have a camera rolling in my office and we’re gonna see if we can catch the mystery pooper. So the reason why we have so many cameras set up and we aren’t just rolling off with these is cause I don’t know how long, these are gonna stay on. Sit. Good boy. I don’t know if Koda has ever – I mean he wore one very briefly in that one episode, but he didn’t necessarily love it so we’ll see what happens here. Koda you’re so big look it – look how long it has to be. Yeah, you guys can see they’re different lengths I gave him the extra long one, just cause I know he has a big head that we have to try to see over He just wants to kiss you, please. One goes around the leg. Let’s go ahead and turn you on buddy and boom there you go. Alright. Does he even know what’s on there? I don’t know if he does. Good boy Koda Good boy, that’s nice He always puts his head down because it’s so big and heavy, I don’t know if we’re really gonna be able to see much but him looking at the floor Koda that’s a good boy If he runs underneath the table, we’re screwed. You’re handsome! We’re kind of getting a little bit – a little bit crooked here. We need to tighten this up some, I don’t want to make it too tight but Coopie, you just knocked the whole camera this big ol head. Coop. Good boy. I’m sorry about this footage guys, Cooper keeps walking underneath me and knocking the camera. Coopie come here! You’re a good boy He just did it again Good boy it’s alright It’s okay Koda, it’s okay Good job Coop It’s alright, he’s alright Koda Put this one in here Koda, he’s okay. Tighten it up He’s okay buddy, you’re wearing the same thing You’re good! Good boy Coop oh goodness Well, we’re gonna get nice, slow, smooth footage out of – Hey Cooper, Cooper! We’re gonna get nice, slow, smooth footage out of one and we’re gonna get crazy all over the place footage out of the other one really bumpy Good boy Coop, come here come on show me your GoPro, good boy don’t try to knock it off you’re a good boy, you’re a good boy Okay Let’s get out to the boat. All right, girl. Are you ready? Are we gonna find the mystery pooper? I don’t know. It might – it might take us a couple of tries, but I feel like it’s pretty consistent. I – It’s gotta be I hope we find it on the first try so watch out boys. Let’s – Koda you’re already crooked just – you’re just a crooked dog, okay, here we go Everybody else has to stay home. Just us. Stay Sorry. He is telling you off. Cooper, chill. Be good boys. They’re already very unhappy about it Here we go. Look at our grass, it’s coming up through the dock. We need to get that – get that taken care of She’s getting us untied, looks like our neighbor Chase is having a little bonfire – that thing’s going pretty good His fire looks like it’s like escaped the pit there. I saw him throwing gasoline on it. So – Well that’ll do it he’s – he’s having a good time. Uh, Cooper’s in the love sack, I can see him. I don’t know if you guys can see but he’s in the love sack He’s gonna get in trouble Get down! Where’s Koda? Maybe he’s the culprit. I’m starting to wonder – he disappeared real fast This is truly a mystery. What if Dakota is the culprit? We just always assumed it was Cooper – would you feel bad? Oh, no, I see Koda. He was just napping – I just saw him stand up I would feel really bad. They’re both at the window. There they are! Aw Do you see them? They look so cute Good boys There they are guys, you can see them standing there We’re leaving you Oh, I thought he was going towards the back I’m seriously curious when we get out of eyesight, what he’s gonna do He’s still at the kitchen table, he’s watching that other boat now Koda’s circling for a nap. I’m hoping that other boat doesn’t throw him off his game We were just gonna chill here around the corner and give him a couple minutes and we’ll see what happens Just hanging out, going for a leisurely boat ride knowing that our – our two wonderful, beautiful, good boys at home are gonna protect the house and they’re gonna be good They’re not gonna sleep in the love sack. They’re most definitely not gonna poop in my office Sometimes you guys, he gets in the love sack and he’ll stay in the love sack until we get off of the boat and then he’ll get out Like he stares at us Yeah, and then he’ll get out and lay next to it like “been here the whole time”. “Wasn’t me” He’s got to do it when we’re gone. Oh 100%. That’s why I’m excited to see this footage Trevor’s bringing us in. Upon arrival, oh, one has just emerged. Which one. Which one? I see a small golden boy Oh – the golden is the first one When we first got here we could see no dogs, but Coop just came from like back by the stairs in the kennel so he could have been upstairs, he could have been having a poo – That’s a dangerous spot to be. could’ve been having a rest. He looks very cute. Hello, buddy. Hello – oh your GoPro is completely sideways What were you doing? Koda, what were you doing? You weren’t on the couch were you? Your GoPro at least is still upright. Let’s see the moment of truth. Are you behind me chels? Let’s go see what’s going on in here Huh. No dice. No poos, alright well attempt number one didn’t work out, but I think we’re just gonna go right back out and pick up where we left off. We’re gonna give him a little bit more time this time. All Koda wants to do is go back to bed. I just want to let you guys know that Koda has not moved since we came back in the house. We went over we turned the GoPro off we readjusted it we turned it back on and he hasn’t moved an inch Who’s a good boy? Oh my goodness, alright, so we’re gonna go back out we’re gonna give him a little bit more time this time. Hopefully it works. Let’s get going Run darling. The boat – the boat is leaving! My legs are only so long! Come on No, seriously You gotta come – come on I can’t make that Yes you can My legs are not that long! That would’ve been funny. Aw man. Alright Coopie is shakin and bakin. Oh, he’s walking towards the office. Nope. He took her – oh, he’s going upstairs What do you think Coop’s doing? Well, I can’t see him, he’s probably still up the stairs. He’s probably waiting to see if that’s gonna be a better angle So we’re gonna cruise around for a good like ten minutes this time and just let him do his thing, hang out, we’ll enjoy this. I mean the sun’s currently setting right now. Does it really get a whole lot better than this? Or, it’s about to set at least. So we’re just gonna cruise around and hopefully he’s gonna do his thing I’m gonna be real mad. If whoever does it doesn’t do it this one time that we’re trying to catch them I’ll be so mad. Watch him do it like tomorrow Ugh. I don’t think you guys understand – there’s like any time that I leave my office door open and we come out here on the boat there’s like a 90% success rate for the mystery poo-er I would say at least, like there have been like one or two times where it hasn’t happened, but 90% of the time it does so, hopefully they do it again We have made it all the way over to the other side of the lake I feel like that’s some pretty ample time if somebody’s trying to be And we’re completely out of sight Oh yeah, you can hardly even see the house back there, so There’s no worries of us like possibly coming back now so Right, so we’re we’re gonna cruise like this all the way back, that should give us plenty of time. If somebody’s gonna make any moves, they’re gonna make moves and we’ll see what happens We’re almost back home. It’s been like 15 or 20 minutes. They had to have done it. Coopie were you good boy? His – It’s sideways and pointed at the ceiling Koda’s over there. Alright. Hold on – Coopie come here. How long how long? 23 minutes. 23 minutes and 21 seconds That’s how long we were gone. We’re gonna shut off all these cameras. I don’t smell any perpetrators so far, but that’s not a guarantee Here we go. Were you naughty? Was anybody naughty? Nope Nothing? They know. It’s gotta be that he knows. You know babe, I’ve just – I’ve reviewed all the footage and I’ve come to one conclusion, okay? We simply have the best boy in the world and he wouldn’t go in the office That’s what it comes down to Someone is pooing in the office Listen, look – he would tell you that same thing. He – he wouldn’t do it. someone is doing it – it’s not me He wouldn’t do it I cannot believe that he didn’t do it. Like I’m – Part of me is really happy because I mean let’s pretend what if this was the end of the office pooper and he just never did it again That would be really nice. I feel like that’s not gonna happen but, um, Man, I showed her a couple of the clips and I honestly don’t know if we’re going to be able to enjoy the boat anymore. Don’t think we’re ever gonna be allowed to leave the house again I’m worried that he has some separation anxiety or something because Koda just acts like if we fell off the end of the earth he wouldn’t care, he would just sit there. He literally did not leave the couch. Meanwhile Cooper is running all around the house just crying. He’s sad. Oh Poor buddy. I’m so sorry He’s so sweet So, I feel like we have more evidence that he’s the one that does it I don’t know if we fully told you guys the – the severity of the situation it seriously happens all the time, like I – I want to – to know for a fact who it is and I’m pretty sure it’s Coop But we still don’t have concrete, solid evidence yet He’s so sad, please love him forever Came up with a really good idea why you don’t think he did it Do you want to tell the people? Oh I think it’s because he saw the cameras out and so he just thought he assumed he was going Ever since he was a puppy. He has always known the cameras that I have He knows the noises they make when they start up and when I hit the record button and stuff so I totally agree with you. I think that’s a great idea. He knows that means he’s gonna play or swim or get a new treat or something. I think he saw the camera and just knew that he was coming along and that’s probably why he was all extra sad throughout all that footage, at least that’s what I’m gonna hope. There’s that meme that you see sometimes and every time I see it, it makes me want to cry – It’s like that a dog is just a small part of your life, but you’re their entire life and stuff like this just really puts that in perspective, like he ran around for probably 40 minutes that we were recording this video – the two times that we went out – just crying for us, so Guys, no more vlogs, have to stay home with dogs Yeah, no more vlogs, no more gaming videos, I’m just gonna spend the rest of my life just cuddling on the floor with this guy We might have to get carpet if we’re gonna do this We’ll never see you guys again. No, but seriously, hope you guys enjoyed the video, man it just Every time you see something like that it really kind of humbles you and brings things into perspective. He’s such a good boy. They’re both such good boys, even though I think if we never came back you wouldn’t mind He’d be like Until he got hungry “where’s the food?” That’s – that’s about it. Meanwhile Cooper would be crying over our graves forever. So anyway, hopefully you guys enjoyed the video I know it wasn’t really what you expected I was hoping to be able to catch him in the act But we didn’t make it happen. If you guys want more like this with like the GoPros on the dogs leaving home, first-person perspective type stuff, we could definitely do that. I would still like to try to catch him, so if you guys want to see that let us know, drop a like in the video and we’ll just start putting GoPros on the dogs everytime we leave and eventually, we’re for sure gonna catch it cause like I said It happens most of the time, so. Drop a like if you guys enjoyed. Thank you guys so much for watching I’m sorry if Cooper kind of pulled on your heartstrings a little bit. He’s such a sweetheart Poor little man Such a lovey-dovey. Oh my goodness. Koda, I love you too, even though I feel like it’s not reciprocated quite as much, but I still love you and, uh, we’re gonna see you guys next Sunday. Thanks for watching guys. Peace out
