Four Delights of the weekend

 Well, I finally got to meet Murphy & Stanley  and boy were they Cutie Patuties.  Me and Annie went to "Go to Church with Your Dogs" with Pastor Michelle from Goose's Gospel of Goose.  See we get to go once a month there to learn more about Christ and also to visit with other dogs and dog people.  It really is quite a treat.

Well you should go over to Murphy and Stanley s Post from last night and see how cute they were in the pews.  I just wanted to put them between my paws and lick em to death.
 Anyway after the service we all went outside to get to know each other better.
 It wasn't easy with Murphy (I guess I am gonna have to call him "Little Murphy" from now on so you wont get confused with my buddy Big Murphy and my new friend Little Murphy.  Anyway it was hard to get to know him, let alone for My Vickie to get a clear shot of him cause he Moves Like the Wind.  Or maybe more like a tornado passing through

 And of Course Stanley would never sit still for the camera except for this one time when he was watching the rain making its way back to the area we were playing in.

After trying to keep up with them, I decided to go check out the Church again and see what was going on.  Well, the door was open and no one was inside so I went in and helped myself to the food table.   Mmmmm Good, that is until My Vickie came to see what I was up to.

 Then we went outside and they closed the church doors to me.  At least for until next month.  I went out and we got this picture of the four of us and Stanley and Murphy's mom.    
I went fishing to catch some fish for a special dinner I was hoping my Sweet Charlotte could come and join me for.  I had this whole romantic evening planned.

First Catch the Fish.  I know they are down there somewhere.
 Second, I had to plan how to fix them.  I mean, we all know that My Vickie can't cook worth a darn and I am not allowed to play with matches so.....
 When my sweet girl got there, I had turned those two ugly dead fish into a charming and tasty sushi meal.
Dear Charlotte, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed our little cyber get together.  I miss you a lot so this was very much what I needed.
I got an email and pictures from my buddy Dougal.  His human had taken him to the groomer.  Ok, it isn't nice to make fun, but why would you do
THIS to a golden retriever.  Oh Dougal Buddy, what is with the shave and poof.  Oh Dougal. I hear your pain from here.
 Seriously Dude, they even poofed your thingy.....You must be mortified.  I sure hope it grows out soon.
Our friend Caren (Mystery and Raj's human) was out taking pictures.  They live up in the mountains close to where we go camping and looking for moose.  She was busy shooting (picture taking shooting) hummingbirds, looking for moose and flowers when she saw this lying fast asleep in the grass.
 How cute is that.  Hey Allred, have you ever thought of looking that innocent?  I mean, I just want to lay down beside the kitty and take a nap.  

So here is to a nice restful, yet beautiful and delightful Memorial Day to all of you my blogville friends.  And a special thanks go from our family to the family's and members of our armed forces who have made and are still making it possible for us to have Delightful Days.

Bert, my lovely, what have you done to me? I check your blog almost every hour in between my work. I think you cast a spell on me;)

That kitty looks kinda like Allred. Maybe if you close your eyes and imagine Allred looking sweet and innocent (look beyond his claws and hiss) you will want to lie down and cuddle next to him? I love those photos in your previous posts with you and Allred all cuddled closely.

Love and kisses, your super fan 4eva.

That poor dog Dougal. Is he being punished?

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

what a delightful post, Bert!!! We loved seeing your new little friends. And those fish - yummers. But poor Dougal - we have a golden a few houses away who got shaved too - he looks so silly. AND two doors away there is a very handsome Keeshond, oh, he is just beautiful. Well, he too got his annual summer do - shaved all but his head and tail - he now looks like a lion.

Hope you all have a great week.

That is so cool you got to go to church and meet Murphy and Stanley. I hear they had fun too! That sleeping kitty is pretty darn cute. what an awesome weekend you've had. Happy Memorial Day!

haopee said...

Allred, is that you?!? You look precious.

Dougal, I'm so sorry to hear what they did to you. If it's any consolation, you look like a poodle... and I say that with utmost respect.

Bert, you must share your sushi recipes with us. I couldn't imagine you pawing the poor fishies into that wonderful meal you had in front of you.

Huggies and Cheese,


Scrappy said...

Bert...I've been gone from blogging TOO long! I have missed reading all about your adventures! I just love that you all get to go to church...I get to sneak in to church sometimes in my bag, but cannot believe you actually get to sit in the pews and have treats at coffee hour! Also, I am a big fan of sushi (and pawing for myself) so that's cool too....and pawmantic.

hey Bert,

I love your "Four Delights"! You definitely know how to enjoy life and live it to the fullest! Your romantic dinner with Charlotte was very cool. Good job catching the fish! The place where you are standing by your two newly caught fish is stunningly gorgeous.

Little Murhpy and Stanley are adorable! And LOVE the photo of Little Murhpy's face mid-run! He looks like a teddy bear!

Poor Dougal. Just not right.
