Hey Boondocks, just wanted you to know that I got fired from my "Dog Walking"job. I really thought I was doing good, KC's mom, (My Vickies mom) Well she even made a special ball/rope for me to hold on my end of the leash.

It was so I wouldn't hurt my teeth on the hard end of the rolly lead.

But today, after we got back from our Exercise Walk, My Vickie told me that KC's mom didn't want me to walk him anymore.

So check out the video and tell me....
just what did I do wrong?

So My Vickie just tole me that I lost my job because I sort of dragged KC around, and maybe the part where I pulled him into the lake (only a few inches) and possibly the fact that when KC got home he slept for two days. 

Personally, I think that is a good thing but maybe it was a bit too much for the kid

This weekend I wanted to introduce all my bloggy friends to my local friends.  I wish we all could get together and play but until that day....
This is KC.  He is My Vickies moms dog and I really have fun when we are together.  That is until the day that I got fired as his "Dog Walker"  But like I said.  Thats ok, cause we still get to play together off lead.
The human in the blue jacked is My Vickies Mom.  We really like her a lot.  A LOT.  She gives me treats whenever I come over which is cool cause My Vickie doesnt ever give me treats, unless we are doing our Cadaver training for the search dogs.
This is my favorite train conductor.  You probably can't see him, but he always waves at us and sometimes blows the train horn to say Hi.
This is James Dean.  He is like the best middle high dog ever.  He is so fun and he comes every day to day care so we get to spend a lot of time together.
Max is the crazy one here.  He is like a little firecracker all the time.  Daisy is the little teethy red girl.  Remember we were trying to find her a home.  Well we think we have the best home ever for her and she has gone to stay with her new family and see if she likes it there.  Keep your toes crossed.....
Gus and Cle, then big Sam, then my shepherd ladies Maggie and Molly. 
Of course my forever friend Murphy.
And my girlfriend Annie
Dougal is my "Kind of friend".  Sometimes we have words with each other but mostly we just hang out.
then there is Devil Cat.  Can't forget him.  Now I don't really call him a friend, I call him "Evil Cat with sharp claws" but in some sick way, he is my friend too.
.Well, thats about it for this week.  The sun is shining for two more days and My Vickie is gonna take me for a hike when she gets back from church so I am gonna go get some rest.

Hope everyone has a Stupendous Week.

Bert, you have the very bestest of furiends. We only have each other here, Mom says that's enough:) We just don't understand why you got fired. We thought you did an excellent job. KC seemed to be keeping up just fine. And you didn't even let him get all tangled in the trees. We think the humans need to reconsider.

Hey Bert! Can we hire you to take our neighbour pal Fernant for walks? It would mean a move to France but we offer good benefits!


Shawnee the Shepherd said...

Pawsonally, I think KC needed the werkout and you woz a fab pawsonal trainer. You gibbed KC the thrill ride of a lifetime. Plus... no leash laws woz brokened. The law be that dogs must be leashed but nuttin says a dog can't be holding the udder end in his mouf. I agree with Frankie Furter - you has a good case fur wrongful discharge.

Reilly / Bree said...

Hmmmm can't see any reason for you to be fired. Don't big dogs ALWAYS push (pull) little dogs around - I know I do :) :) :)

That is a terrific bunch of buddies you have and Mom thinks Murphy is so cute !

Charlotte said...

Bert - I think you did a real great job and I don't understand why you were fired. I would be proud to have such a guy who leads me... ok we would do it a little bit faster and as far as I'm concerned I hate water... but away from that I really would like it!
and you have a lot of nice friends too - I prefer the cat - looks marvelous!
sealed with a kiss, charlotte

Finn said...

I really don't know why you were fired! I mean, it looks like you were providing an exceptional exercise opportunity! Love all of your neighborhood friends too!

rottrover said...

Wrongful Termination, we say!! You were great, Bert!! Glad you and KC still get to play, though. We loved meeting your furiends! Hope you had a great hike today with your Vicki!

louise curry said...

WELL I THINK ALL YOUR FURRY FRIENDS NEED TO BE DRUG BEHIND A GREAT BIG LONG LEGGED BUFFON, half the time on my back and the other part with the leash wrapped around my back leg. And before I finish here ..What fun can you have being drug through tall grass, having no idea what is looming up around the next corner,,,

Now you have my side of the story. Bert is still my buddy and Vickie my all time favorite human..


Mango said...

Gosh! I thought you did an excellent job. Little guy seemed to be having fun.


John and Deborah Gill said...

Come and take me for a walk! My slaves feet hurt her all the time and Basil is too old to play. I'm surprised every morning when I wake up and he's still alive.
The only fun I have is chasing the bee's that have infested the apple blossoms surrounding my home.

Say what? You were fired? I can help you find a good lawyer.

Sagira said...

I don't know why they would fire you. Looks like you did a great job to me.

What cute friends you have. :)

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh Bert! You walking KC is just the cutest thing!! Loved your video! And I loved getting to know all the doggies in your neighbourhood too! You're so lucky to have so many nice doggie friends!

I've been catching up with your posts and they are hilarious! Especially your 'brekkie' one - hee! hee!

georgia little pea said...

dear Bert,

why would anyone fire you from your dogwalking job? you did good. you even stopped plenty of times for KC to sniff and cool his toes. i think that was very thoughtful of you. don't worry. lots of people who see this video will give you a new job.

your friends look interesting, even the little ones. your girlfriend is very pretty.

do you really do cadaver training? that's scary.

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! Golden Laughs on your video. I say you did a FAV Golden Job! Annie is cute. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Suzanne said...

Bert, I can't believe you were fired. You were doing a perfectly good job. Thanks for introducing us to all your friends.

Glad your commenting abilities are working again.

Sarge said...

Hey Bert!
Wow, great video! I don't get it...seemed like a great walk/drag to me. I didn't hear KC complaining at all!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

KB said...

Bert, I think that you did a GREAT job, showing KC the world at a Golden's speed! I loved the video and the photos of your friends.

Hi Bert, thanks for stopping by. It seems to us that you took KC on a fun walk....not one of those go-in-a-straight-line boring kind of walks. Can't imagine why you were fired. Your friends sound like they are a lot of fun too!

Hazelmarie Elliott (Mattie) said...

I just love this blog! The pictures capture my heart - and my imagination. I'd love to give each of the animals a hug. Especially you, Bert!(smile) You're a beautiful guy. You could take me on a walk anytime - I'd love it...

'til next time, golden boy,

Miss Kodee said...

Bert I know Becky would just love and I mean LOVE to be walked by you. She zigs and zags anyways! Your awesome!! P.S. Your Vickie's dog KC is ADORABLE. Not that we are partial to Cavaliers or anything ;)

Bailey Be Good! said...

Awww, I think you were doing an awesome job as a dog walker! Sorry you got fired.

You could come walk Nala anytime. ;)

Woofs & hugs,


Murphigator said...

I have to admit the video of you dragging, um I mean leading KC around on his walk was hysterical. You were even considerate enough to stop for a drink in the lake and a graze on the grass. I think KC was enjoying himself. You need to ask KC's mom for another chance.
Your bud,
The Murphigator

katie, Maizey and Magnus said...

What a fun walk, but Bert you have to take it easy on the little Cav's like KC-they have shorter legs than you!LOL It looks like you guys had a great time!

What a wonderful walk! Thanks for sharing it with us and sharing it in the Walking Challenge.

Did KC come from Logan, by chance? He looks like another Ruby girl I know that was born there.;)

Great pictures! Sorry to hear you got fired :(
