Things that made My Vickie smile this week

WE get to see so much fun stuff in our lives.  So today My Vickie asked if she cold post some of the things that make her smile.  I am pretty tired, so I said, "Yeah, go ahead"
 James Dean and Annie Make her smile
 Goose's Mr. Giggles  made My Vickie laugh and laugh.  But when Goose's mom brought My Vickie some:
 Mr. Giggles Cup Cakes, well that really made her happy.
 A little guest at the Kennel, Mazie and Willa at play.
 Trips up to my mountain where the wild flowers are starting to bloom along the hill sides.
Spirited Deer hiding in the forest.
 Last years babies.
 The amazing growth of the antlers of the moose.
 And....NO....that is not me.  It is Barkley a 16 week old golden that is staying with us for a while.  I mean, how cute is that and wouldn't looking at that cute face (that looks so much like I did when I was his age) make you smile.
 Seriously, I looked just like him as a pup.
 This made My Vickie smile but I wasn't exactly pleased.  One of my favorite nurses at the hospital bought me these so I can go riding on the atv with My Vickie.  This could be good, but I don't dare open my eyes so how can I enjoy the ride.
 And my cool friend Michelle (Gooses Human) who was patient enough to teach me, the bone on your nose trick.  that really makes My Vickie smile.
And finally something that makes My Vickie and me smile.  My new yellow ball (also from my buddy Goose)  It is bigger than a tennis ball and I get to play with it.  Finally, a toy I can have.

So, everyone, now it is time for you to go out and think of the things that make your human smile.

And a final point......No, I did not catch that rock, but the picture sure scared My Vickie when she realized how close I was getting to catch one of those bounders.  I guess there will be No More "Rock Toss" game for me.....

So I am off to read some of your blogs.  I just want you all to know how much I love your blogs.  I have been really busy lately so I haven't had time to comment but I still check you all out every chance I get.

Bert you have a "mini you"! Barkley looks just like you. You could be his mentor. MOM told me you learned the treat on the nose trick and that you flip it up in the air and catch it. You know what makes me smile? YOU! Just can't help it.

Mom loved the mooses and wonders if their noses are as soft as they look

Suka said...

hey Bert,

I just commented on your "Rock Toss" post. I did not see that you already had this post up! I am so furry happy to read you did not catch that rock and that your Vicki is putting a stop to that game.

Your Vicki smiles at such wonderful things! All of those photos put a smile on my human's face and a wag in my tail. You have such beautiful dog friends and the wildlife animal photos were stunning. All I can woof about the cupcake is...*drool..... [O.K., that is not exactly a woof.]

Thanks for sharing such lovely photos and making our day brighter!

Glad to hear you didn't catch that rock. Whew! I want to thank your Miss Vickie for sharing such wonderful things that make her smile! They made me smile! And there is something about just saying Mr. Giggles that makes my smile even bigger! LOL! Also thankyou for the puppy fix. Barkley is adorable!!

Murphy said...

The glasses look really cool Bert. I am surprised you already didn't know the biscuit on the nose trick but glad Goose's mom taught you. But most of all, we are so happy to see you Sunday night! We will try to have good puppy manners but mom says that will probably not happen unless God works a miracle. But the location is right so we never know!

Your friends,

Murphy & Stanley

Oh, those made my mom smile, too! How cute is Barkley? How clever are you for doing the cookie on the nose trick? How yummy does that cupcake look?!?! And ... LOOK AT YOU with that tennis ball!!! Now THAT is cool!
My very pretty friend Sandy (Thursday's post) is a Golden like you and Barkley, but her coat is darker red. Sigh. She's so beautiful!
