Mostly Pictures

 Me and my neighbor Trigger went for a strole on Sunday.  I thought you would like to see what a cool dude he is.
 This is him shaking after a swim.  If you click on the picture you can see what cool eyes he has.
I think he has beautiful eyes
 And he can leap thru the air like a wolf after a bird in the wild.  You'll be happy to know this is not a bird, it is just a stick.
 Then we came home and fixed the dog van.  My Vickie uses it to take the doggy day care dogs on walks cause she dont' care if they get all muddy and wet, then get in the van.  It is cool to have an old transport vehicle that a dog can enjoy totally.  Wet or Dry.
 So remember last week I told you how Murphy fell in the lake.  I am beginning to wonder if that isn't a golden/doodle thing.  You see I asked My Vickie to see if my girlfriend Annie and my forever friend Murhpy could go on the walk with us on Tuesday.  (WE are in the Walking Challenge and we need to make up miles cause we didnt' make our quota last week)

I thought it would be great to show My Annie where the Murphigator fell into the lake last week.  I never figured that she, my beautious girlfriend would be as silly as Murphy.  It is true, as you will see in the sequence below.   My Annie did the exact same thing that Murhpy did.  Exactly one week a part. 

Seriously is it just golden/doodles or have I picked some real "special" friends.

1st.  Recap of Murhpy Last week.

Walking to the end of the log for a drink.
 This week

Annie walks to the end of the log
Last week.....

Murphy falls in.
 This week.

Annie falls in  "HEAD FIRST"
 Last week

Murhpy struggles to get out and not drown
 This week

Annie struggles to get out and not drown.
 Can you beleive it.  Same log, same fall, same panicked, "I can't swim" salute to nature.   Seriously.....There has got to be something wrong with them.

I do have to say  that I was a little more worried about my presious Annie than I was about Murhpy.  And the humans were all just about ready to get themselves wet in an attempt to rescue her when she finally managed to pull
herself up on the log.

I figured I would never get her back in the water again.

later in the walk, Murhpy and Me started smelling something with human scent on it down in the swamps by the river.  We went in and rescued my new friend "Paulo the Ape"
First we had to do CPR
 Then I carefully watched over him until he had a chance to dry off.   Some little girl somewhere is probably crying and missing her little buddy that was probably carried off in the flood waters, ending down here and rescued by me and Murhpy.
 One final swim before we head back.  Annie mostly watched.
 A game of tug with my buddy Murphy.
 Then a game of "RUN to Dry Off"

 A final group shot and then Home we go.

Oh dear you guys sure are water logged this week! Was the water freezing? Cute monkey!

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

OMD, I cannot beleef they both fell in the eggzakt same place the eggzakt same way. Cooincidences? Or not... Spooky. Wot a find, that Paulo the Ape. Did he fall in at the same place too mebbe? That be like the Bermooda Triangull.

Meeka said...

How weird is that Annie and Murphy fell from the same log. There might be some kind of spirit pushing dogs off who dare step on the log.

verobirdie said...

Maybe it is the log that is special? Anyway, i liked going on thatvtour with you and your friends.

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh Bert - I know I shouldn't really laught but those pictures of your Labradoodle friends falling in just had me in stitches!! :-)

Trigger does have beautiful eyes!
Is the log oiled? Geez!

Love ya lots,

Reilly / Bree said...

those are truly pawsome photos and what terrific friends you have. At least you will never have to worry about Annie and Murphy running away to the circus to be tight rope walkers - I don't some how think they have the balancing part worked out.

Frankie Furter said...

BERT... that fallin off the LOG thingy was like..
Day Jaw Voo
I can't believe that your furend and your GIRRRRLfurend did EXACTLY the same thingy!! Yep Day Jaw VOO
I think the idea of a Van fur all conditions is GRRRREAT.
THAT LAST pic is just Fabbo!!

I hope that you can bring your furend and GIRRRRRLfurend to the big Picnic in the Bark on June 17 & 18..
HECK you could submit some of these pics for the DUNK TANK thingy. And you won't want to miss Shawnee's Hike MOVIE and Littering lectures in the Blogville Ampitheater!!!

It looks like you had a blast. I got your message about the bug pics. You can try sending them to PBU at comcast dot net & see if that addy works.

jen said...

Wow! you and your friends sure know how to have a good time!

Sam said...

That must be one very slippery log!

Looks like you guys had a great day!


Remington said...

You certainly know how to have fun!

Boondocks said...

Love the run to dry off picture. I can't figure out how a dog that is part golden and part poodle don't love the water. Maybe they are 'special' as you said.

Whisppy said...

That's hilarious! I thought Murphy looked like some creature from the Ice Age in the picture where he's chasing after you. S-C-A-R-Y!

George said...

Hi, Bert, and hello from Austria..
O dear, my walkings in the rain and my wetness afterwards are very harmless again your fresh-muddy river-games.
Of course, all dog-hearts beat faster, viewing on this pctures.
Next wednesday is my 1st birthday, and I wish from my "parents" a trip to a artificial lake near in the mountains, where I can swim, jump and dig in the mud alongn the shore: so long until they believe their dog has turned into a wild boar :-)
Take care! "Blackbeard"-Bobtail George

Bailey Be Good! said...

Oh my goodness!! Poor things! I hope they didn't struggle TOO much trying to get out! :(

Happy Wednesday woofs & hugs,

Your furiend Trigger does have beautiful eyes, Bert - big and golden brown.

You sure do have a lot of fun with your two labradoodles pals. Wish we could go along with you.

Hi Y'all!

What's wrong with Murphy and Annie? I didn't think a retriever existed that couldn't swim! Heck, they're made up of two retrievers, they should be able to out swim you!

Y'all come by now,

Ludo van Doggy said...

I casnot believe they both fell in at the same place, great piccures to capture it though. Glad no pawrents had to go to their rescue, must be the poodle in them huh?
Hey, you bagged yourself a new toy! cool!

Hi Bert! Gosh, I feel like it's been forever since I got to say "hi" to you. That sure does look like a Most Wonderful and Exciting adventure. But are you sure they fell in there by "accident"? I find that a teensy bit suspicious.

Wiggles & Wags,

Bert, I am so glad our paths have crossed in blogger land. I LOVE YOUR BLOG! And I will look forward to reading the archives and future posts.

I am fascinated by search and rescue dogs and I'm currently reading "Scent of the Missing: Love and Partnership with a Search-And-Rescue Dog." by Susannah Charleson. I was amazed at the training process for SAR dogs.

georgia little pea said...

you really take the most fantastic pictures! i loved this story the first time and i love it even more now. what gorgeous timing! that last pic of the 3 grubby dogs is a wonder!

all this wetness begs the question - who gets the job of cleaning and drying these furry beasts off?

too good! :)

p.s. i suspect Georgia would love to play with Bert, Annie and Murph. just her type - big and rowdy!

KB said...

I'm laughing, laughing, laughing, about the identical falls by murphy and annie, one week apart.

You need to take another friend there to see if they do exactly the same thing :)

Amber-Mae said...

That must be a cursed log or something. I would stay far away from it. Great looking friends you have, Bert! And my oh my, look at how handsome you look in that 1st picture. HANSHUM!

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

Trigger is certainly a handsome pup, but I think that Murphy and Annie falling in is definitely a 'doodle thing' we both know a Golden would never have that happen!! :-)))

Anakin Man said...

Tanner and Beth said...

Looks like you had a great time!!! Annie is beautiful. I am not sure how I would do with the water thing. I haven't had a chance to try yet. Mommy says soon. Now that it is warm here.

Puppy Kisses,

RonJoe 'Geezer' said...

Thanks for sharing your big adventure with Murphy. I'm glad he knows how to swim.

That ugly little monkey doll is quite a find :-)

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Hi Bert,
Gees, thank you so much for coming back!!
Yes we still have Mexican once in a while at home with way better guilty ingredients.
Tom stared doing the shopping a couple of years ago and then he started doing most of the cooking and I love a man who cooks. My youngest son cooks for a living and has for over 20 years. He loves to cook and so does Tom.
Have a great week-end!!
xx, Fern

animal lover, quilt lover said...

With way better quality food!! Sorry.

I'm new to your blog and just wanted to stop in and say how handsome you are, Bert. :) And please don't mentioon it to them, but I had a giggle at your friends Murphy and Annie. Of course, my dogs have never been swimming, so they'd likely flap around "waving flags" too. :)

1000 Goldens said...

Bert - I cannot believe the luck of your friends falling in the lake! Luckily you saved the ape - your photos with him are darling!

Bailey Be Good! said...

Happy Sunday woofs & hugs, Bert! Hope you're having a great weekend!
