I swear, if I were to read my dog’s thoughts, they would always say something about being the roughest toughest dog in the neighborhood! Well now I finally get to see what this dog is thinking! Introducing Caesar the Tough Puppy for the “What Do Pets Think About” video assignment!
Caesar is my Labrador Walker Hound mix and he’s currently 3 years old, but in the video he was only a few weeks old. Caesar was always a tough little guy. This stems back to when he was just a puppy and he would always steal things from the other puppies in his litter. Now that he’s older, you could be sitting on the couch watching TV, and he’d come up and jump on you for no reason wanting to wrestle. He tries to act like a big champ, but he’s just hiding the fact that he’s a total sweetie!
This is him older!
I made the video using a mix of iMovie, Final Cut Pro, Garageband, and GIMP. I used GIMP to create the introduction photo using a picture of Caesar trying to jump out of his box. In Garageband, I used one of the royalty free songs called “Vintage” because it sounded really…triumphant! Then in iMovie I uploaded some video that I’d taken when he was a puppy and then did the voiceover there since I could watch the video at the same time to match the voice up. After I created that, I moved the product to Final Cut to add the introduction photo, transitions, music, and outro.
Caesar has sort of calmed down as he’s gotten older, and now he’s got another puppy to worry about. That’s right, we just got him a playmate last month named Prince. After Goldie, Caesar’s older playmate died, Caesar was devastated and hated being alone. Ever since we got Prince, Caesar has been A LOT happier, running around playing with him. Sorry Caesar, looks like there’s a new tough puppy in town!
