Man, My brain is fried.  My Vickie and I have been busily working on the finalists for the Best In Show winner and it has been really tough.

Don't get me wrong, I have very much enjoyed reading about and learning more and more about all of the contestants. It is just that there are so so many great winners to choose from, plus I am getting terribly homesick.

Like last night I dreamed:   that I was back at the kennel and visiting with some of our younger guests. 
 Like Mia who is a bundle of fun for a little 4 month old.
 Nala, who, (Don't worry, no surgery)  who is almost 5 months old and already taller than me.
 Mia and our old pal Zoey have a rousting game of bitey face.
 And in the dream Me and Jamie played ball with the crew.  Doesn't Jamie look good? She is down to having seizures only when we go to the park......So clearly not much tripping to the park for her.
 In my dream My Buddy Goose and Pastor MIchelle, My Vickie and I took a walk out to the bird refuge and climbed the tower for a better view.   No birds, but there is a tennis ball......
 LET ME IN.  (I was on the outside of the bird watch tower.)
A final climb and pose on the big log, then I had to leave my buddies and come back to my cabin in the woods above Flathead Lake to continue working on MM 2012 BIS.

GOOSE said...

While all the MM stuff is very exciting. I for one can not wait to have you back in town.
Funny thing, I had a very similar dream about the bird refuge. Weird right?
I'll post some pics to show you how I dreamed it.

KB said...

You really are a dreamer, Bert!

I love any post with a photo of a happy Jamie! She is beautiful.

That photo of you and Goose is fabulous. How did you get photographs of your dream? I'd like to do that. Is it a "dream cam"?
