Meet the Hazel Run Pack (videos)

I've only got 4 videos uploaded so far...I'll be doing a few a day, likely for the rest of my life, since the phone lines are crappy and my modem is slow :frustrated: ... and I've finally discovered how easy it is to get footage off the camera onto the computer, so I have lots of videos to upload :o

I'm sure you'll be sick of them long before hazel is :laughing:

I can't see them once they upload because the connection is too slow, so you'll have to tell me if they work :o

Anyway, the first one is very recent--it's King Ember playing keep-away with the Doggy Tire...
http://video.yahoo.com/video/play?vid=524923

The second is the Hazel Run Pack, led by Ms Muddy Mossy Messy Macie, working hard to repel an invasion of Very Dangerous Butterflies...
http://video.yahoo.com/video/play?vid=530868

Then there are two that show how well-behaved the Pack is at home. They aren't allowed to play in the house...so of course, they never do... :D
http://video.yahoo.com/video/play?vid=530948
http://video.yahoo.com/video/play?vid=531087

That's it for today...if I have time and the Pack cooperates, I'll add some more tomorrow.

If at any time you wish me to stop adding them, just throw something at hazel and she'll stop me. :p

Yeah, it gets pretty noisy around here when they're not playing in the house like that... :D

Oh, LOL, those are awesome!!!! And they play just fine! Well done! :) I love the tire one, too cute they way he was holding it, hehe. :laughing: And the "not" playing in the house--LOVE it! :lovestruck:

Those are awesome Hazel. I just can't make up my mind which one I liked best. I'm leaning towards Macie and the butterfly squadron but I think I might need some more videos before I can fully decide :D .

BTW, do they always get along together?

Yep, pretty much. Ridge on occasion gets a little rough, but the Pack usually takes on the challenge and rolls her into submission...:D They love to roll each other...especially if there's a muddy spot to do it in... :frustrated:

Sure! They're equal opportunity suck-ups...as long as you can touch all six of them at once they're okay with sharing... :D (Got a few extra hands?)

Adorable! My pups got up and ran around the house looking for the noisy doggies during the video of your dogs "not playing in the house" :laughing: .

they'll love the next one, then--it's Ms Macie "being popular" in the yard. The "popular" one for the play session becomes the brunt of practical jokes and sneak attacks. When Macie first arrived in fall of 2004, she would go practically catatonic when the Pack tried to make her "popular". She likes to play softer. The Princess-Queen and the Sheriff realized the problem and spent all winter trying to build Macie's confidence and teach her to "be popular". We had a breakthrough that Christmas when I looked out into the sideyard to see Ms Macie (our smallest) takin' it to the Sheriff (our largest) in the side yard. :D And by Spring of 2005, Ms Muddy Mossy Messy Macie was takin' it the whole Pack!

:o However, you're gonna hafta wait a few minutes to see it because the video is still being processed :laughing: *the suspense builds!*:p

They look great, hazel!

I also don't know which is my fav video or pack member. Too hard to choose!:thumbs up

I see lots of head sparring on a daily basis (since my two don't play in the house, either, of course :angel: ) but it's far noisier. Fingal makes all kinds of high pitched yodelling sound and wookie noises.

Love watching the quick change in direction when the Very Dangerous Butterflies are around.

Such great video's! I love them all. Shadow holds her pillow like the tire and it's hilarious. Your dogs are lucky to have so much room to run around in. With all that space it's obvious why they don't ever have to play in the house:laughing: My two play the "I've got your face in my mouth" game too, but are much more vocal about it.

Sorry, Frenchy... I can't see them online, either. :sad:

And the last one, of Macie holding off the Pack, is still processing! :eek: I loaded it before 9 this morning. I don't think any of the rest of them took that long... Think I should delete it and try to upload again? :shrug:

Next time you're in WI with Petey, stop on in and the Pack will teach him how to "not" play in the house, too. :D They have other bad manners they'd love to pass on, too :laughing: Petey'd have a ball!

May 17th, 2007, 02:51 PM
Hmmm...Macie's video is "still processing"...and I can't keep a connection long enough to upload anything else. I hope it's yahoo and not something from this end... :frustrated: Anyway, looks like there will be a delay on more videos... :sad: I knew it was just too fun to last... :sad:

hazelrunpack
May 17th, 2007, 05:21 PM
It finally finished processing! Yay! :thumbs up

Here is Ms Macie being "popular" with the Pack and loving every minute of it:

Prin
May 17th, 2007, 10:17 PM
Ok, so they barked at the one with the tire, but not at that last one, go figure! :D

They're so fast, Hazel! Much faster than they are in pics! :) It's sooo nice to see them. I love the comparing jaw sizes one- Jemma and Boo do that too, but I never catch it.:) They're all just great. :cloud9: :lovestruck:

hazelrunpack
May 18th, 2007, 12:22 AM
Did it ever work for you, TeriM? I was having trouble with yahoo all day,but it seems better now... Course it's the dead of night :frustrated: Tomorrow I'll be posting the hummingbird video in the bird thread... I finally got it uploaded tonight :o

luckypenny, they can (and do) go on like that for a quarter hour...then they eat some sticks or grass or get into mischief...and then start another ruckus... They used to do it all day. Now that they're getting older, they've confined it to the cool morning hours... :D We're a very high energy household...but this is nothing compared to how the boys were as puppies! :eek:

he he he Prin...LOL...much faster than they are in pics! :laughing: You slay me! :D

Yay, I got to see it now :cloud9: . I was at a client's and I'm thinking it was some something on their system that wasn't allowing access. I love popular Macie video but how come there was only 4 dogs? Aren't we missing two?

King Ember rarely plays with the Pack as a whole. In fact, he doesn't really know his own strength :o, so when he joins in, Macie and Cass drop out. He plays with his sister Lil Belle a lot--she's such a tomboy. I have a couple of videos of Lil Belle that I'll try to upload later today. When she's not playing with Ember, she's entertaining herself...:D

You can't see the Princess-Queen Cass in the clip, but you can hear her barking her approbation. She's got the high-pitched short bark you can hear coming from off-camera now and then. Very piercing if she's sitting next to you and suddenly "goes off". :eek:

They are so beautiful, Hazel! :lovestruck:

English setters have so gone on my list of someday dogs-you know, "Someday, I'd like to have a....". :D

Hubby was watching the VDB video and commented on the fence you've got-all I had to say was "Wolves." He got it. :D

What fun ~ makes me realize my grrrlies don't play in the house in the house anymore. It used to drive me bonkers but seeing your gang now I kind of miss it. :sad: I love the tire-on-snout pic, "look at me Mom, I'm a PICTURE!"

Yeah, I'm still looking forward to the quiet, but I'll miss it when it's gone, too. :D

Here's a noisy one (if you're at work, or have dogs in the room, probably a good idea to turn down or mute your speakers :D) of King Ember at play. His sis, Lil Belle, is such a tomboy--she's the only one who'll take him on. You go, girl! :thumbs up Notice how, in true setter style, she points her brother before the match begins... :laughing:

Ms Macie loves to referee, barking advice from the floor (so to speak):

And now you know why hazel and madame hazel are nearly deaf! :p

hazelrunpack

Princess Lil Belle is also very good at entertaining herself when no one feels like wrestling:

and I soooo loved the last one. Lil Belle with the zoomies:cloud9:

Here's one last one...unless hazel decides to throw dignity to the wind and put in a clip of leaf hauler sledding :o ...

This is Sheriff Cole trying to find a peaceful spot to open his mailing tube.

This is my all-time favorite footage of the Sheriff, but it's shot indoors and might be too dark for anyone to make out... I can't see it with my slow modem once it's uploaded, so I'm not sure how dark it turned out... I hope you can see it! :fingerscr

I've got bird tapes I listen to in the late winter to "re-educate" my ear before birding season. I love it when they sit in front of the speakers with their heads cocked, listening, and then get up to look behind the speakers for the birds! :laughing:

How dark is it? Even played from my hard drive, it transfered over pretty dark. I can barely make him out... :sad:

He's been helping me map out a route to Canada for our Big Vacation...but the map doesn't show dog friendly motels, so he's at a loss. he he And it would have to be a very dog-friendly motel! :laughing:

A little dark but you can make out that he has this big long thing in his mouth and you can see that he is white with spots

hazelrunpack

You can see he's white with spots? Cool! I can't even see that off my hard drive! But I have a little CRT for a monitor, too...not very good for video viewing, I guess...

May 18th, 2007, 03:35 PM
Aww, they just keep getting better and better :cloud9: . I loved the one of Ember and Belle with their personal referee and the one with Belle with the zoomies was hysterical. I thought it was hilarious that when you said something to her she kicked it up a notch :lovestruck: .

The last one with the Sheriff actually showed up very well for me. I could definately see all the detail and isn't he just the clever boy :cloud9: .

"'Kay... :o I knew I said that was the last one," hazel whines, "but I'm having just so much fun and there are two more I just have to include. The first is rare footage of all six (in one frame at times), "not playing" on the deck. As when they're "not playing" in the house, they sometimes get quite noisy..." :D

Actually, she's the second (or third, since we don't know what order she and Ember were born in) oldest. Ridge is the youngest--she'll be 4 on June 18; then, in order, Macie (4 today), Cole(4), Ember and Belle (4), and Cass (5). My babies are growing up too quickly! :sad:
