This Dog Can “Talk” To Her Owner | Mashable

“Bunny, a Sheepadoodle, took TikTok by storm after using AAC, or Augmentative Alternative Communication, to “speak” with her owner.”

This is amazing.

There is also an Instagram to follow.

I love this breakthrough.

THE VOYAGE – Bark Europa sails 10000 nautical miles from Ushuaia to Scheveningen

“In the first half of 2020, Bark Europa sailed nonstop from Argentina to the Netherlands amid the Covid-19 breakout and ongoing international restrictions and port lockdowns. This was the longest nonstop voyage she has ever done, over 10000 nautical miles, starting in Ushuaia in the southern tip of Argentina all the way to the her home port, Scheveningen in the Netherlands. This video is the first hand account fo the life on board during this voyage.”

This is amazing. You see a lot of teamwork and mutual support throughout this video. It’s a harrowing journey but this group makes it with good humor and a lot of professionalism. I could not do this.

Before Beta: Sony’s 1969 “Camcorder”

“14 years before the first camcorder hit the market, Sony put out a machine that promised to be everything the camcorder would be. It wasn’t.”

From YouTuber Cathode Ray Dude, who does deep dives on some truly bizarre vintage home video equipment.

And there we have it. Friday Videos!

Stay safe and dry this weekend. Happy Friday!
