Friday, I was out with my friend Erianne takin a walk. We had such a nice time and when our walk was over, instead of taking me home, her dad and her brought me over to Fort Bueneventura, where My Vickie was waiting.
When I came up over the hill to join her, I got so excited cause a ton of my friends were there and we were all going on another walk.
We played by the river, but My Vickie didn't want me to get in so I didnt' get to swim. It was a bummer, cause Logan and Baci both got to swim.
Annie had to be on a leash whenever we were around the water cause she had just been groomed for her Christmas Company. Me and Annie were promised that next week we could swim.....I guess I can wait.
Besides, the water was ICY cold today. But still no snow to speak of.
Here we are all posing so My Vickie can get a picture of us. From left to right, we have my buddy Oakly, then Tucker and Ty, Annie and Murphy in the back with Goose commin up, Me and Belle and behind Belle there is Baci, Logan and my buddy Jake. They are kind of in the shadows.
Back home at the kennel, I had several guests for the Christmas Holiday. Like little Zoey, who my Vickie has been calling Lexy....can you imagine.
And Max stayed for a bit too. He kept trying to take my ball away. But I have a bigger and stronger mouth so I kept taking it back.
My best human friend Whitney came over with Zero and Cliff. Abby kind of took possession of her, but that is ok, cause I get her every Tuesday when we go to the hospital.
And well, of course, it is almost Christmas Day and My Vickie let me open some of my gifts. I am just the most luckiest dog in the world....I had a blanket of cards and a ton of great toys.
I just want to thank everyone for all the Merry Christmas wishes, all the cards and presents and tell you that tomorrow , I am gonna have some pictures of some very special gifts that My Vickie and I got but now I am just gonna go to bed cause I am really worn out.
Note From My Vickie:
This is a time of recognition of the life of a very important man in our lives. We seldom mention belief and way of life in Bert's blog but at this time I'd like to share with you this:
In our home, we have a beautiful picture called "The Good Shepherd" painted by Nathan Green.
It is a picture that shows a gentle man caring for a small helpless animal. This is the kind of person I would most like to pattern my life after. Loving, thoughtful, tender and compassionate, one who loves all creatures, no matter who or what they are.
Our household loves Jesus Christ and all he stands for and we wish for all of you, the peace that comes with knowing such a man.
