BAck With A Vengance

and I came back with a vengeance.
My Vickie had my whole week so full of activities, it tired me out and I am fast asleep right now.
So My Vickie is writing this post in my name.
Monday:  7 different 40 minute demonstrations with my Buddies Murphy and Tucker
Tuesday:   Off to the groomer and then To the Hospital for My Patient Visits
Wednesday:  Back to the Hospital for a few hours and then another demonstration later in the evening.
Thursday:  My friend Toby couldn't go to the hospital so another bath and back to the hospital
(I should note here that My Vickie is very careful to see that I get a very gentle shampoo because I have to bathe so often....not counting all the swimming I get to do)
Friday:  My other buddy Elvis wasn't able to go to the hospital so I filled in for him too as well as another demonstration that afternoon.
SATURDAY: Play Day....Play Day....Play Day
 Here I am making sure My Vickie is staying put while I keep track of one of the speakers.
 Pretty Good STAY.  Don't ya think?
 If ya look hard you can see Me, Tucker and Murphy in the crowd.  We just love kids.
 And YES, it is true.  That is Annies mom tossin me a "Tennis Ball"  Oh Yes....It is true.   A TENNIS BALL
 And all my buddies took a dip in the river with me.  It is running pretty fast now so we are not allowed out in the deep end, but we still get to get wet.
 What a great group and I am loving it.
 Check it out, Don't Baci and Logan look like grown up versions of Stanley and Murphy
 WE tired to catch some good pictures of zoomies, but this was the best we could get.
And YES.....that is me.  A long dive across the river.  Can you tell which end my head is on.

And for you Goose f\Fans, he was here too, he was just helping My Vickie set up some training for our Search Dogs Handlers that come down from Idaho to train.   Thanks Goose 
And finally a fun video of all my buddies at Canine Country Club, the demos, the kids, the walks, just all of this months fun.

Happy Sunday everyone.

Wonderful pictures!!!!

Tanner and Beth said...

way to go, bert. Just remember, Tennis balls are for Chasing and Catching. NOT CHEWING! They are more fun whole! otherwise they don't bounce!

Doggy kisses,

Your pal, Pip

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Makes us happy to see you back in the full bloom of health, Bert. Did you establish that DMZ around Allred?

Your video was really cute this week, but mama has a suggestion to help the elderly readers amongst your fans: the written comments/titles need to stay on longer than half a second so older readers get a chance to actually read them :)
