July 20th thru 30th 2010


Have ya heard the news?

It's True, Finally, Happily

I can tell you all that Dizzy

has found a new home.

And not just a new home but a GREAT home with a GREAT Lady and two other four legged pals and a HUGE BIG wonderful back yard and he gets to go on hikes ALL the Time. Every Day.

I am thinking about asking his new family to adopt me. Vickie even said she was thinking about asking if they would adopt her too.

YEAH Great and wonderful news, don't ya think.

So when Vickie took Dizzy who is now called CODY to his new home to try it out, they asked her if she wanted to bring me and Betty to a "Puppy Party". A "Puppy Party" now that sounds like a great idea.

I was so excited about it when Vickie came home and told me about it.

So a week or so after Dizzy/Cody went to live with his new family, Vickie Betty and I piled into the car and went to our first (and hopefully not last) "Puppy Party"

I say "Hopefully" cause Vickie said I might have done a few things that could get us ousted in the future. But I think she just exagerates a lot. Let me tell you what really happened.

So we get to the party and Oh MY, there are dogs everywhere and the grass, oh GRASS. I have seen grass at the park, even when I get to go to Vickies moms house, but I don't beleive I have ever seen such beautiful, roll around, make me green, grass like Dizzy/Cody has in his new yard.

Me and all the other dogs that came to the "Party" just loved the green stuff. We ran and jumped and played in it, rolled around in it till I was exhausted.

Betty was a little more reserved than I, taking advantage of all the wonderful loving she got from all the really neat people that were there.

Ray Ray and Taylor were there too. Remember the video I sent out a few months ago of the "Happy Tails" That was Ray Ray and Taylor. They sure look different when they are standing.

I found this ball, Ha ha. And Robie thougth she had found and hidden all of them before we came. It took some doing but Vickie finally threw it for me for about five minutes. She wouldn't let me take it to the other humans there because she says I am still a little "Phsyco" about my persuit of the ball wether it is in your hand or in the air.

Taylor found a friend on the other side of the fence but they didn't get to come over and join us so after a while we all forgot it was even there.

Dizzy/CODY (I'll call him Cody from this point on cause I think you all understand that his new name is not Dizzy but Cody) Anyway Cody is in seventh heaven. He has all kinds of new friends, two legged and four legged, he has a real live bed to sleep in (he doesn't mind sharing it with his human and Wiley the other two legged member of the family)

He has a house to live in and he hosts these wonderful parties now. Well, he is almost the luckiest dog in the world.

Betty, still working the crowd.

So I did pretty good up till now. I checked out the food they were all eating once or twice but I didn't take any. I just did the dog thing and ran and played and entertained for about an hour.

It was getting a little hot and I was tired so I went looking for water. I love water. There was no pool to cool off in but there was this big bucket full of bottles and ice. (I LOVE ICE)

So me and some of the guys start drinking the water from the big metal bucket, but I was still hot. REally hot, so I started trying to get some of those bottles out. I had a plan you see.

Now to the on lookers, you might think I was just playing in the bucket so they were laughing a little and watching. But like I said, I had a plan.

I swooshed and shoveled until I had pulled out a few of those bottles and now there is more room in the tub. Room enough for, You guessed it,


I was able to menuver things around just enough so that I could curl up tightly into the bucket and the cold ice and water with the bottles and all was my cooling off tub. Ohhhhh it felt so so good.

And the best part is that no body was mad at me.....

Well Yes, Vickie was slightly emberassed, but not mad.

That little trick of mine and a slight dissagreement with Cody just before we left, leaves us on the Maybe list for coming back to the next "Puppy Party", according to Vickie. I sure hope she is wrong. I mean, other than those two little tiny things, I was the perfect guest.

My swimming hole is getting a little crowded these days. Like today after a really long hot hike, I come to the lake all ready for a cool refreshing dip, but when I get there, what do I find?

Yep, these two mooses (is it mooses when there are two or meese) anyway they have taken up residency right in the one and only spot on the lake that I am allowed to go in on. They were just young ins, maybe two years old and I figured I could take em if I needed too. But Vickie said “NO’

Finally, after who knows how long, they have enough to drink and start slowly I mean slowly coming out of the water. So I am getting ready for my long run and dive into the water when Vickie quietly whispers “no Bert, not yet”

Now come on, the young ens have left and it is my turn… what is holdin up the mix here? Then I see what she is looking at with wonder and amazement and I too have to stop and watch in Awe.

Just up the hill from us comes this beautiful, huge, I mean HUGE bull Moose. He is walking stratight towards us with the intent of going to the water. It is clear that he is intent on going directly through us if we don’t move so Vickie quietly whispers “Bert, Come to Heal” The way she is whispering is intense so for one of only a few times, I “Came to Heal” at her first request.

Then we slowly moved to the right about 20 feet and stood in amazement as the big guy walked right past us and into the water. We were watching him, thourougly engrossed when I noticed out of the corner of my eye something moving along down the same trail just to the side of us.

Vickie and I Turned at the same time and saw yet another HUGE moose appearing from the forest like a gient ghost spirit not 20 feet from us. I say ghost spirit, because it was late and just as the sun was going down so as we looked at him he was appearing through the sunlight and it was ghostly.

I may be wrong but I figure when a critter as big as these two guys comes down to swim in my lake, as much as I hate it, that lake BECOMES THERE LAKE.

I may be young and foolish sometimes, but I am not CRAZY......

Yet again another demonstration this week. Of course it is always fun to be with the kids.

Check it out.....Can you find me in the picture below?

I am loving our trips up to Huntsville for my agility class with Tucker. We jump, climb, play teeter tauter (how do you spell that one) sit on boxes, race through tunnels.

Who wouldn't love that....


So I figured I would work on my blog while she was gone, you know, really put things in my words and I stand up on my hind legs and punch the start button and I am all excited about writing stuff, cause she has always done the writing for me. (I just tell her what to say) I figured I had watched her enough and that it would be pretty easy, so I am getting ready to pull up the internet and get to my page and there it is…..PASSWORD…. WHO DOES THAT?

She had a great time without me, she saw lots of beautiful scenery and took lots of pictures

but I am glad she is back. Truth is, I missed her.

She was showing me what I missed and I asked her if we could put a few of the pictures on my blog. She went nuts taking pictures of clouds. She says she sees all kinds of things in the clouds. Dogs, a genie, birds a dragon.......

Check it out. Do you see what she sees?

I think she has a wild imagination but if I try really hard, I can see what she is talking about.

On the trip she got to go see where her mother was raised. A little town called Clear Creek. Her old back yard was filled with daisey's. The mountains all around. Vickie said she would love to have grown up in a place like that.

She even went to the old jail where all the mighty criminals stayed.

The cell was still inside and Vickie went in to see what it was like. She said she would have gone crazy to be locked up in a place that small.

Well I have gone on for some time now so I better sign off now. I gotta tell you though, I am soooo glad Vickie is back.

She is just about the only person that can keep old Allred at bay. While she was gone, he ruled with an iron thumb. By that I mean, that when ever Judy wasn't around taking care of the kennel, Allred would come out and smack me around like the devil he is.

At least when Vickie is here, she can stop him from ripping me a new one.....(what does that saying mean?)

so I leave you with a few links to some video's you might enjoy.

Dougal sent me this one. It has some pictures of him at the Fort at the new dog park. (you have to go past the first few pictures of the parade, but if you look you'll see how much fun it is there)

Here is a video from John and Trigger. This is another moose that comes to my swimmin hole.

Last and my favorite is this one which is a combination of everything that has happened over the last two weeks. Moose, Dogs and Canine Country Club, Vickies trip down South and the kids from Childrens Classic.

Have a wonderful Week.
