Here’s a burst of sunshine for your weekend: Jake the Diamond Dog. No politics here, unless maybe you don’t like dogs. (I don’t trust people who don’t like dogs.)
Come on now, everybody smile!
I borrowed this from Ronni Bennett’s Time Goes By. I don’t think she’ll mind sharing the sunshine.

That brought a great smile to my dial and a tear to my eye. What a delightful way to start my day. I’ll be grinning all day long.
I’ve been grinning all day too. Glad you enjoyed it as much as I did.
I keep going for another look, even the war Office watched it and actually smiled and said what a great dog, which just about floored me 🙂
Even better for me, Jake’s a golden retriever, my favorite breed. I’ve owned 1.5 goldens (the remaining half is labrador retriever), and my brother had one.
They are wonderful dogs, I alwyas wnated one but the women in my life have always told me “NO WAY TOO BIG”, have you ever heard such nonsense? I’m very happy with my Coco, he’s half American Cocker Spaniel half King Charlie Spaniel
I think Coco is adorable and it’s easy to see why you love him so much.
and he’s just lying here beside me snoozing, 😀 🐩🐶 🐾 🐩 🐶 🐾 🐩 🐶

If this doesn’t make your day nothing will.
Thanks for sharing.
Jake makes me smile AND laugh! What a sweet, helpful boy! 🙂 Thank you for sharing this with us! 🙂
My doggie, Cooper, and I enjoyed watching this vid! Cooper is too small to pick up a bat, but he can pick up small tennis balls (not regular size). Maybe he could be of help to small tennis players! 😛
Goodness, yes! Back in the day I ran myself silly chasing errant tennis balls around the court. And wouldn’t kids love to have a ball dog!
I couldn’t agree more.

Reblogged from Piedtype.com. Delightful!!
Everybody needs a happy, uplifting dog story.
I enjoyed this video at TGB and here, too, being both a baseball fan and dog lover.
Then you like it even more than I do, because I’m not a baseball fan. But any time I need a smile, I can watch Jake do his thing. Works every time.
I don’t trust people who don’t like cats 😋
I’m a little more forgiving of people who don’t like cats, but only because my sister is so allergic she can’t even come into my house. But I love my kitty and have never been without at least one cat.
Haha, allergies aside, when people don’t like cats, I take it as a sign that they don’t understand boundaries. Boundaries and respect. That’s how you win a cat cover. Tummy rubs and overt affection are for dogs. I had dogs until adulthood when I got a cat. I’ve been converted. 😄
I have one cat and one dog. Love ’em both, but yes, totally different species and behavior.
Do they get along? My cat hates my husband’s dogs. The cat before loved the dog, but he hated her. 😂
They don’t play together, but they tolerant each other. The dog occasonally tries to play but I warn her off. She’s 70 lbs. The cat’s only 10 lbs and getting old. I’ve had many instances of dog and cat(s) together and never had a problem. Introduce them slowly and with a watchful eye. Make sure they know you won’t tolerate any misbehavior. (Actually, you can train the dog. Not much you can tell a cat.)
That is worth a big smile!
He’s a sweetie, that’s for sure.
