I had to sneak back for 24 hours

I hope I am not in too much trouble with the Mango Minster panel, but I had to slip back into town for 24 hours cause I had some obligations I needed to take care of.
Murphy and I got to go to an after school program on Friday and teach the kids about "How to stay Safe" in the woods if you ever get lost.
Since I retired from active service, I haven't been able to do this much so it was great fun to spend the time with the kids again.
And since Saturday is our regular day to meet with friends and go walking, My Vickie decided I could stick around for that before we headed back to ___________ for sequestration.

Here is a short fun video of the demonstration and our walk with my friends.  Hope you like it.  You ca also go HERE to get a faster version.

Now we are headed back but before I go....Here are the last guesses.....and just a hint....Goose is pretty close.
Goose - Whitefish Montana   Tank - Montana    Chico - Montana and Lassiter - Lewis and Clark National Forest.

Your all on the right track.....I'll post another hint after the valentines dance.


Check out THIS VIDEO  it will amaze you and pull at your heart.

Hooray for you for helping kids learn to stay safe!

GOOSE said...

It was great to play with you today. Glad you came back, even if it was for a short time.
I would also like to point out that MOM and I were not lost. We were helping a doggie learn how to search for someone.
Did you know that the wolf is MOM's favorite animal (next to me of course). She loved the video and agrees.
Have fun "wherever you are". And I can't wait to see what Vickie does to Allred, he's in BIG trouble.

The walk was great fun so glad we brought Gus. He had a blast and best of all no limping. It was so great to see everyone. We do think Gus may be a little sweet on Gigi.
ps love the music:)

Val said...

GOOSE said...

You may not have noticed me this evening following you back to your secret hiding place. It wasn't easy to track you, and I may have lost you a few times. But I do believe you are on Dog Lake in Montana. Tell me I am right, cuz I am to tired to search anymore.
Your tired friend,

It must be so fun to get all those kids petting you and maybe sharing their snacks? I am glad you are taking a break, with all that is going on you will need lots of breaks. I still think you are in Glacier National Park in Montana, but my Mommy who is a bit of a geek thinks you are hiding out in Forks, Washington hoping to see Vampires or something. Sheeeesh what a nut she is.

p.s. The wolf movie was they are not werewolves Mom, knock it off...double sheeesh

You look great, Bert! What a pawsome thing you were doin with all those kids. We hope you got to enjoy a romp wif your furriends before you left! xoxo

Mango said...

Bert! I have no doubt you kept a low profile throughout your most important adventure. Now get back to the sea quest!


Reilly / Denny Cowspotdogs said...

You gotta keep you paws in the work Bert and when you love it like you do - you can see it. I bet you had a pawsome time with the kids and it must of been good to get back and see everyone.

Reilly / Denny Cowspotdogs said...

Oh we forgot - we wondered if you are at Beaver Lake - which actually looks just like a duck on the map!

Finn said...

How about Flathead Lake? Momma had to google Montana and check out some lake spots! It's a good cause that you came home for, I am sure those kiddies learned a lot!

Bassetmomma said...

What great pictures of you and the kids! Who better to teach them how to stay safe in the woods than you, Bert!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

BERT... can you read this in the sea quest herd place??? I hope so.

Goose Cheated.. GOOSE CHEATED.. I can't believe it.. Must be that .. some of.. YOU KNOW WHO's influence has rubbed off on him.

I am glad that you got to go and teach the little two leggers how to be SAFE. THAT is just GRRRREAT.
BUTT... GOOSE.. CHEATED and Followed you back!! SHOCKING.

Sam and Pippen said...

Awesome videos, dude! Must be lots of fun talking to the little kidlets...

PeeS. and to answer your question... the Sam never gets into trouble!

The Army of Four said...

Hey Bert! Glad you got to pop back into the civilized world to teach some little bipeds a few things and to play with your friends! Looks like you had a GREAT day!

Mitch and angel Maggie said...

What a great video. You have the best friends, Bert!

Love ya lots,

Anonymous said...

You seem to really love your job Bert. I'm not fond of rug rats myself, so I'm glad there are dogs like you who don't mind teaching them the ropes.


PeeS - You're a smart dog Bert... how will I know when I've gathered enough nuts?

Two Doodles and a Dane said...

Oh Bert, your such an amazing guy!

Isn't playing with kiddos the best??? As always, looks like you're having a blast and enjoying life to the fullest!!

Looks to me like you were safe enough on your excursion home to do good deeds. You were surrounded by 2-legged and 4-legged friends the whole time to protect you from any inappropriate pressure about your BIS judging duties, and Rev. Goose followed you the whole way back to sequestration to make sure you made it safely.

The wolf video was wonderful. In fact, we're putting many of those principles to work as we address the problem of the Allred Horcruxes. Tell Vicki not to worry. We expect to have the Allred problem fixed before she gets home and has to do anything about it.

Dear Bert,

this Mango Minster thing is confusing me no end. You seem to be travelling a lot. It must br very hard on Charlotte.

Anyway, tomorrow is Valentines Day! I just wanted to wish you (and Charlotte) a lovely time. I have a Valentine too, so I think I'm ready to let you go now. Murphy never asked but it's okay because my Frankie is very handsome, a lot of fun, and he lives just next door a few thousand kilometres away.

Happy week! Your friend, Georgia.

georgia little pea said...

Dear Bert, it's Frankie who lives in New Zealand. He's a pigdog just like me! You can find him here if you like

K9 Katastrophie said...

Hi Bert! looks like you've had fun!

Maggie Mae said...


Your secret is safe with us!

PeeS Humans can learn from wolves ;)

haopee said...

It's always a great thing to teach kids on safety procedures with doggies around. They can pick it up faster and their interest stays longer.

Good job My Vickie and Murphy's mom!

To Bert: I bet you and Murphy enjoyed a whole lot of strokes and kisses from those kids.

Huggies and Cheese,


Charlotte said...

Darling you look so beautiful and I'm so proud you wear the collar! Oh and you told everybody we are in love! And this great work you are doing with those kids - I must say it once again: you are my heroe!
Love Charlotte (I'm dreaming of Valentine...)


Kids are grrrreat. It is even better that you can teach them to stay safe.

We think you are Big Bend, Montana

I think you are at "Swan Lake" in Bigfork, Montana. We even saw there is a "Retriever Lane" near Swan Lake. You've got to be close to there. Maybe you are at "Laughing Horse Lodge" near Swan Lake? Thinking back to your photo of you being photoshopped diving into the creek -- it didn't look like a graceful swan-dive to me.

Kirsten (peacefuldog) said...

Looks like you had so much fun with those kiddies. Our youth today need more good examples like you!
