Dog Goes Shopping Anniversary

So... if you know Jasmine at all.... chances are you have seen this video:   (Dog Goes Shopping)

This was my first attempt at making a skit/ video.  I was just learning how to edit videos.  I didn't have an HD camera at the time.  It was just my friend and I making a silly little video.

And yet... this is the video that Jasmine is most well-known for.  This video has been on TV all over the world...   and this video is the reason Jasmine has as many friends as she does.

This is what started it all.  And we're coming up on the 3rd anniversary of me posting the "Dog Goes Shopping" video.   It's kind of crazy to me how much has happened in the last 3 years!!

It's kind of mind-boggling to think that people all over the world know about my little dog.  (and love her.)   

If you've been following my blog, you know that recently there have been quite a few people stealing Jasmine's trick videos and taking credit for making them.  And one person even said Jasmine was their dog and that they trained her!   Although this is kind of annoying, and I now I have taken appropriate measures to deal with the copyright infringement... I still don't get too worked up over this.  Because at the end of the day... I have the real deal.  I have the furry little sweetheart lying at the foot of my bed wanting a belly rub.

When I rewatch this "Dog Goes Shopping" video, I can't help but smile.  Jaz is just so funny.  It's her expressions.  Her eagerness to do tricks.  (For example... make sure you watch to the very end of the video to see the extra scene after the credits.)   That's my favorite part!!  Her expression after I say "Why is my credit card bill so high?" is priceless!!  

I have so many kids asking me... does Jasmine REALLY sneak out to go shopping??  Lol.  I tell them that this video was made by me editing a bunch of tricks together.  However, Jaz is so smart... I wouldn't put it past her!!!  So... maybe!!  ;)

Here's a couple of screenshots I was able to get of her different appearances:

She's been on TV in Germany, England, Sweden, Denmark.



America (Animal Planet)

America (12 News)

And this video has been featured on websites all over the world:  Croatia, Iceland, Spain, Greece, England, Scotland, Finland..... and probably more that I don't even know about!  These are only the ones I could find...

My favorite thing to tell people is.... "The best thing about owning a canine celebrity... is that they never let it go to their head."  :)    Jaz is still the same sweet dog she's always been.   :)  So... "fame" doesnt really mean much to me or her.  It doesn't change anything.  (at least for me.)   I'm glad more people get the chance to smile and laugh because of my silly dog.  But even if none of this stuff had ever happened, I would love her just the same.

  1. I think some of the popularity of that first video is the simplicity of it. It isn't big and fancy - so the focus is on Jasmine's tricks.

    Congrats on the anniversary and all the success!
