I've a-"mast" some links for you.

Oh that was a bad joke.

Batten down the hatches maties, you're in for a long day of links!


First off, I joined vine with the sole intent of recording Tank snoring. Which I did. I played it back to him and he sat there, listening intently. And then this morning I hid a treat in a blanket and recorded him getting it, but I messed up the video a bit because I forgot you have to hold your finger on the screen the entire time. I like the time lapse feel of the first half of it though.  Anyway the point Vine is actually pretty great for recording your dog doing things.

This is awesome.
