I live alone with my dog and and i love him more than anything but he's getting close to 12 years old so i wanted to find a way to capture memories with him before his time comes.
When the Spark came out, it seemed like it could fit the bill, so this is my first attempt to immortalize our time together on video. Feel free to suggest how to make it better. (Please don't mention the part when i climbed over 90 meters. I'm aware, did it once only and took every precautions) Thank you.

Nice video.. your dog sure does have a good friend in you.   I set my spark to active track my granddaughter just running around in the park.. let it record for the whole battery life..   It sure is a boring video for anybody else to watch.. but I love to watch it over and over :-)

Very nice video. My only suggestion would be to get more shots with the drone closer to the ground. I thank that way you can see more of the dogs face either approaching or going away from the drone. The overhead shots are cool but some lower shots I think would give the video even more flavor.

But nice job and thank you for sharing.

Great idea.  The song really fits.  I think the trick is to capture on video those things they do that are them.  

Like my dog that would carry our keys in when we got home.  She would mug you for your keys, take them in, and wait by a corner chair to bring them to you.  She would wait, out of the way, until you called for them when you got your coat off and packages put up.  She would get a treat when she handed the keys back.  In the end it turned into her carrying in all kinds of things.  hats, wallets, light grocery bags, mail, etc.

The point is that that was her.  I never video taped it or got any photos of it.  I am not even sure how we trained her to do that.

Great job & an awesome way to celebrate your friendship with Looky.  He's looking pretty dapper & fit for 12!  I must add I am envious of your secret power source that allowed you to achieve Earth orbit!

You've made a truly precious and special video.  Please do continue to add more memories of the two of you together.
For inspiration, you might want to take a peek at Ben Moon's documentary about his dog, Denali.  It wasn't shot with a Spark, but it might give you some ideas.
Here's a link to "Denali" on YouTube:

Thanks. your guess is very close to mine but they are just guesses.  I picked him up in a shelter 10 years ago so , no history.

I almost didn't post the link, but thought the story was powerful enough to warrant it. I'm glad you enjoyed Ben's story.

Please continue to share your videos and photos of Looky if you can. I'd look forward to seeing them, as I'm sure others here would. :-)

I seldom watch video's to the end but I did this one. It was awesome and aren't rescue dogs  the best?
A saying "you can't buy love but you can rescue it"!  It is so true. We have a 3 year old Chihuahua that we rescued and he is amazing.
I may start trying to video our dogs once they stop trying to attack the drone.
Great editing, keep posting please.

Thank you. You are so right. Good luck filming urs without the last shot beiing the camera in their mouth.  (I can see from ur logo that we have similar interests)

It’s awesome to see someone using Technology in such a “Human Way”, being in IT, its always about either making money or making simple things complex to supposedly make business easier, outside of business technology seems to be mostly about entertaining an idle mind, you have shown what technology should be about .... and also made a jaded and cynical IT bloke take notice, well done !
