SlimDoggy Jack & Maggie: Video Stars

Share Button

Video, yes today’s post for the letter “V” is Video. It was going to be on vegetables, but since we spent Wednesday with a film crew at our house running B-roll for an upcoming news feature on wearable pet technology, I thought it would be more fun to give you a glimpse into our day.
But it’s FitDog Friday – what does this have to do with fit dogs you ask? Well, Jack wears the Heyrex device that monitor’s his activity levels, sleep cycles, itching, etc. and provides a series of reports that help you track patterns which may alert you to behavior discrepancies that may be health related. Part of being a fit dog, is watching your dog’s health!
Back to the filming. while it wasn’t quite a ‘crew’, it was only one guy, but he came with plenty of equipment, including a camera drone – more on that later. Jack’s first job was to check the equipment.

We needed film of the dogs ‘sleeping’. Right, like you can get dogs to sleep on command with a stranger standing in front of them taking a picture. This was the best we could do. We also did some video of Jack eating, but for some reason we had to do multiple takes on that scene. What’s up with that, Jack?


After a bit we moved outside to get some shots of Jack, Maggie & Steve playing in the yard.

Then, the fun part – the camera drone. For that we moved across the street so that Jack & Steve could run. It was kind of windy, so the drone didn’t perform exactly as desired, but we were able to get a little bit of it. Jack saw the sahdow of the drone on the ground and mistook it for a lizard!

All in all it was a fun day. The film guy said he would send us a copy of the film so we will be sure and share more when we have it.

  11. That’s awesome that you are a part of this news feature! I love the photo of the dogs “napping” on their beds. Looks like they did a great job with everything. I’m sure the final film will turn out great.

    • They did surprisingly well. I think it helps that they are seniors and relatively calm most of the time. But they were great – so proud!

  12. That looks like such an exciting day! I can’t believe you wear a monitor, the Lady won’t even monitor her own health that much let alone mine. But we do try! Can’t wait to see your video! Love Dolly

  13. To think that we knew y’all when! BOL!

  14. I know I read this on Friday, but guess I didn’t comment. I went to leave for work and had a flat tire. Between that and shows/training all weekend, I am a bit scattered and behind. lol Anyway it sounds like you had a busy day of stardom and the drone is very cool.
