Tissue Time: “Friends Are Waiting”

FRIENDS ARE WAITING BOTLNOTES botl.com

You’ll be amazed at how powerful of a message can be conveyed in just one minute! Friends Are Waiting is part of Budweiser’s “responsible drinking” campaign, and in a word, it’s EFFECTIVE.

No spoiler alerts … other than to tell you to get out the tissue, especially if you’re like me in believing pets are part of the family.

Dinky the Dane talks to Daddy

Do dogs get jealous? Well, if you watch this incredible video of Dinky the Dane, you’ll know the answer soon enough!

Ro-Ro is getting massage and attention, and it’s driving Dinky crazy. He’s ready for his turn, but Daddy tells him he has to wait.  If you listen carefully, you’ll hear Dinky say “I love you” several times….before flopping himself down on the sofa with dramatic flair!
