Sunday Reflection

 Boy am I one tired Pup.  I am lying here (on the lazy boy because I am wet and My Vickie won't let me get my bed that Charlotte sent me dirty) anyway, I am lying here thinking about this weekend.
 Thought you might like an update on the little boy we are searching for. (here is a link to the story)  Newspaper Article

They haven't checked out the areas where us dogs say he might be.  They are pretty focused on the spot where he went into the water and have a hard time believing us when we tell them we think he is about 1.7 miles down stream.  The picture above is of me alerting.  I was on the other side of the river when I got this alert.  My Vickie marked the area and we sent it it.  So we will see.
 My Vickie and I went out last night to watch the Super Moon.  It was really huge and her little camera took a pretty good picture of it.  (well I think it did)
 Pretty neat.   It was a lot larger as it came over the horizon.  Almost spooky.
 Yesterday after searching for the little boy, My Vickie, Michelle and Goose, John and Trigger all went hunting for more  morel mushrooms.  Boy has it grown in the last week.  
 But My River waited for us and after the hunt we stopped and played.  Oh I love my world.
 This is Trigger.  He is cool and we hang a lot.  He isn't as much of a water dog as me, but he gets pretty close.
 "Doesn't he have the most glorious eyes?
 Of course Goose had to work on digging and pulling up the only log/root along the shore.  Boy he is persistent.
 And then there is me.  I bet you wonder if all I do is play in the water.
 Well, I WOULD, if I could.  I think my name should be Flipper.
Have a nice Sunday everyone.  WE are back on the search Monday to see if the scent of the little boy has moved down river from the last place we thought he was.  Hopefully, with your prayers and good wishes, that little boy will be found tomorrow.

Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayer to this point.  We know the family appreciates it.

We are really annoyed here because it's been raining ALL weekend and we haven't seen the Super Moon!


Finn said...

Good luck with that search Bert. We are keeping this family in our thoughts.

I have my paws crossed that THEY will lissen to YOU and that the child is found. This must be horrid fur his parents.. and I KNOW that it is very VERY much difficult fur YOU and Your Vickie.

You are ALL in our hearts.

Dear Bert, I don't understand why they would get you dogs to help and then don't listen to your advice. Isn't that a bit duh?

Your Vickie took some great pics of the supermoon. You can even see the man! She's clever with her little cam.

Maybe you can tell me why you're not scared of putting your head underwater. How do you breathe? Did your Vickie trick you into doing it the first time?

Our holiday is almost over! My humans are sulking.

GOOSE said...

I sure do hope they listen to you Bert (and the other search dogs) and look further down river. MOM is mad about that too. I am always so glad that even though you worked so hard that day you still found time to play with me and Trigger. And for you info, I jsut clear all the sticks and logs from the rivers edge so you don't trip over them as you dive in the water. See ya later.

Mango said...

It must be hard when the humans don't think you have the right spot for that poor little boy. Rest up and good luck with the search tomorrow.


The Cat From Hell said...

Oh Bert!
Such great pictures! Me thinks yous is part fish!
My hairy slobbery sister Bob was like that, but wes just found out that she has glaucoma so Mommy won't let her in our river! She even puts up a fence in our back yard so she can't goes down by herself and she is sad. She loves me reading yours and Goose's blogs to her!
Thanks yous!

Curt Rogers said...

We missed the super moon last night because of the rain, which has returned this evening. And to top it off, it's cold, too. Thank you very much for the photos, though. They're astonishing!

Trigger looks exactly like on of Duncan's friends, Pepper, a work dog we've befriended. One of these days soon I'll post a picture of her and you can see for yourself!

Ina in Alaska said...

So sad. What a beautiful child.

Charlotte said...

Hi Flipper! You're my "dog in the moon" - Love Charlotte

Kim said...

Wow, what fantastic shots of the moon! It was cloudy and foggy here, so we didn't even get to see it with naked eyes, let alone camera. Good luck on the search tomorrow!

Prancer Pie said...

Great pics! We especially luf that tongue shot. Good luck wif the search. Purrayers goin out fur the family and searchers. (including you and Vickie)

Jeanne Pursell said...

We are hoping and praying that you find that little boy Bert. It must be very difficult for the family. You must be exhausted from all the searching. Your friend really does have beautiful eyes!! We think you like swimming more than any dog we have ever known!! And that Goose...he does love to pull up roots and sticks and stuff...silly Goose!! The moon is AWESOME. Tell your Vicki that our mama says her picture is amazing! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

chicamom85 said...

I have paws crossed and Mommy is praying for the little angel. I am amazed at your water pictures, you had your whole head under there. Wow, wasn't it cold my pal??? You always look so happy and I am happy for you.

Loveys Sasha

Mitch and Molly said...

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Bert, we would believe you if you were helping us with a search. We hope you find that little boy.

You sure could be called flipper. Your tongue is nearly long enough hehe. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

The Furries of Whisppy said...

We hope the rescuers will check out the place you alerted Your Vickie to. It must be so hard for the family and everyone involved. :(
Mommy has a question : when you submerge your head in the water, doesn't the water go into your ears?

IRIS E DONA said...

Hi Flipper ! hehehe ...!

Good luck with that search Bert! I hope you find the little boy!


Peggy Frezon said...

Thank you for looking for that little boy Bert. My prayers go out to the family.

You look adorable playing in the water!

Teddy said...

Looks like you had such a great weekend Bert! I wish we had the same weather BOL The UK has had rain, rain and more rain!
Love the super moon piccie xxx

Leslie said...

Oh Bert, you are such a good boy helping to try and find that little one. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and our admiration with you and your Vickie for doing what you do. You do look tired.

And those are amazing photos your Vickie shot. Really wonderful.

Bassetmomma said...

Good luck with the search. Awesome pics of the moon! We didn't get to see it as it was too cloudy here! Love the tongue shot!

hey Bert,

I would be tired too. You have been very busy, playing and working. Thank you for helping in the search for the little boy, and our prayers are with the family that he is found. Such a heartbreaking story.

The pictures of you are wonderful! You are such a beauty!

Pawsome moon photos! From where I live the moon did not look any bigger than normal, so that was a bit disappointing. But it was very bright.

Good luck on your search today. Paws crossed all goes well and the little one is found.


KB said...

I love Thant last photo of you and your tongue, Bert! I hope that "they" listen to you about the place where you think that the boy is... My heart goes out to all of you.

We are in the waiting room at Csu...

2browndawgs said...

Beautiful pictures of the moon. Good luck today.

Lassiter Chase and Benjamin said...

Good luck with the search! We read the article - can't believe the family was just posing for a picture when the accident happened. We will always remember to check our surrounds before posing for pictures. On a brighter note, the picture of you with your tongue sticking out is cute.


You look like one tired golden in some of those pawtographs.

Murphy said...

Bert, I am glad you are still looking for that little boy. It has been so long now. I liked the picture with your tongue out and my mom loved the moon photo since she didn't get one. She was outside at 1:30 a.m. looking at the moon and amazed at how bright it was.

Your friend,


NanaNor's said...

Hi Bert, Thank you again for searching for the little boy; I know his family really needs to find him. I love how wonderful you are and Ms.Vicki-so very giving. Wish you lived closer.
Hunter is wishing he could play too but he is still a little scared. I took him to the vet today and he got two shots but when some dogs approached him, he got a bit nervous.
Hopefully he'll settle in and become the friendly Bichon that his breed is known for.
Hugs today.
Noreen & Hunter

Tracy said...

Oh Bert, I am so praying...he is such an adorable little guy heart is broken for the family! You do good work Bert, keep it up. I'm also glad you were able to get some rest and play some-it is most necessary when you do important work like that!

K9 Katastrophie said...

Hopefully the little boy will be found soon! Trigger is one cute pup!


Sagira said...

I sure hope they find him soon. We actually thought of you last weekend. A girl my mom works with, her father in law is missing and has been sine beginning of April. They had a huge search for him last weekend that lasted all day long. Some Search and Rescue dogs came all the way from Texas to help with the search. But they still didn't find him. :(

rottrover said...

Our paws are crossed that you all can find that little guy...

haopee said...

Bert!!! Buddy!!! How are you?!?

Wow, you were able to see the super moon. I didn't even know about it until I watched the news on TV.

Good luck on the search.

And by the way, I love your duck-mode diving picture.

Huggies and Cheese,


Mazzie @ Mazzie Takes Manhattan said...

Woof to you Bert!!!! I most definitely believe you as there is no way a 2 legged person can outsmart a nose like yours. And I LOVE the last picture of you licking your lips - so handsome! I hope you and your friends find that little boy soon. Much love to you - XXOO - Mazzie

No(dot dot)el said...

Bert- These pics are SO cute! And yes those eyes of your dog pal are really beautiful.
