What Happens When You Take Away Their iPhones

Below is an example of enthusiastic joy when Martha, a 2-year old rescue meets Henry, a 10-month old rescue. We took away their iPhones, so they had to find something else to do.  It didn’t take more than a few seconds and they were BFFs..

The video is exactly one-minute long and the best parts are towards the end, so I encourage you to envision yourself as one of these dogs for 60 seconds.

Martha and her new friend Henry.

We were invited to a very small (a total of four adults, two dogs, and two cats) get together for that silly football game this past Sunday. I will note to my followers in the North that yes, everything is green, except the pool water which is crystal clear.

Maybe if we, as parents made our kids put their cell phones in a basket for a few hours, they might go outside and play like this.

Note: Martha is the lighter colored of the two.

The link of them frolicking can be found here.

You see only one minute, but they kept it up for almost two hours before they ran out of gas.

      Might be a problem at my end. It was a video of the two dogs, chasing each other around the yard and pool, up and down the steps to the deck and just having a great time with each other

  2. I shall have to use my imagination. Unfortunately not available in the UK. They certainly have a lot to teach us about acceptance, and the joy of living in the moment!

    I love to watch dogs playing together but it wadn’t available to me either. Someone once mentioned that uploading to Vimeo (free) allows a wider world audience.

    I believe that this may have been just something wrong with the upload as I had some challenges with it as did some folks here in the States.

  6. Love the idea of having family put cell phones in a basket. I have actually done that with our kids when they come to visit. As long as they are in the house the phones stay in the basket….mine included!

    I couldn’t access the video either, ray. i love the story behind it, though. Are you sure you marked the video “public” not “private?” I’ve made that mistake before…just a thought!

      I’ll blame it on the YouTube gnomes. Some people could see it and some could not and it wasn’t based on location. I might try again and see if I can get it to work properly
