Haphazard Happenings

We need to start by apologizing to all our friends because we haven't had much time to comment on your blogs,  but My Vickie says we will be catching up this weekend......We hope.

So here are a few Haphazard pictures from the week plus a huge plug for the Blogville Olympics.
I am sponsoring the Pole Jumping event and I just wanted you all to "Get Your Practice On"    More info to come around the end of the month.  

 Lots of fun friends at the Kennel this week, like Pepsi who was the chorus leader in "It is time to eat, Vickie"    A beautiful song that always brings rewards.
 Here we have two young Golden Doodles exercising in one of the play areas.
 Nola the Dane thinks that Puppy Barley is a stool and sits on his head.
Barley tries to take her off at the knees
 It is all in play.  What  a fun day.
 Check this out.  Have you heard that pennies in a clear bag filled with water will keep the flies away.   This is even better and prettier.  The copper color spins and the crystal sends beautiful reflections.  all of that combined has somehow caused all the flies, which are pretty bad this year, to go somewhere else.  We are almost fly free and that is good cause My Vickie really doesn't like flies very much.
 We went back to our poppies mountain and it was so beautiful.
We met a friend and enjoyed a few minutes of natural communication.
 Home again where poor Goose is waiting faithfully for his human, Michelle to get back from her trip.
 So sad, 
Night everyone.  Long days and peaceful nights.

Goose looks like he is so depressed. I hope his mom comes home soon.


Suka said...

hey Bert,

Poor Goose! He really misses his mom! I hope she gets home soon. What a sweetie!

Nola is hilarious! Sitting on the little pup Barley. Too funny! Pepsi is so pretty with such beautiful blue eyes. What a fun time at your place!

That is very cool about the flies and copper. We must try that.

Yay Olympics! Can't wait! I am practicing now.


The Cat From Hell said...

Looking at you and the dogs always makes me feel matter what kind of day I've had.
Thanks so Much
Nellie's Mom said...

I know how Barley feels... Floyd often mistakes me for something to sit on... :/

GOOSE said...

OK I am a little sad. But you see for 12 years I have been the one to make sure my MOM is OK and so this is hard for me. But you know what I like it at your place. And that Nola is a hoot. Thanks for taking such good care of me Miss Vickie.
PS- where do you keep the hot dogs? I'm a little hungry now

Ina in Alaska said...

Goose looks positively heartbroken!!! Poor baby!!! Hang in there Goose!!

Nola & Barlow are hilarious!!! Great pictures!

haopee said...

You look a tad different, buddy! What's happening. The center is so pretty. I love it. Is it as big as it looks?

By the way, I didn't know that either... about the pennies and stuff. Does it work with mosquitoes as well?

Huggies and Cheese,


showgirl said...

Pure Goose! You look really sad!
I do the same thing with Nola! Mum say that I'm rude, but I don't care! It's more comfortable.

Slobbers to everyone

Rosa, the Dane

Charlotte said...

My Darling I'm dreaming of you - and I know you do your best to make Goose feel good! Love Charlotte

Sankissjuice said...

I agree with Nellie's mum. I feel the same way too. What would have made it better is some news of Allred ;p

I have been down the past few days and it's.reading blogs from animal lovers that help keep my spirit not too low. You have no idea how many times I check your blog in a day. I feel like I am a stalker, haha.

I need some dog and cat love :(

Poor Goose. He does look mighty sad. Our Mommy HATES flies and she is very interested in your "fly-pellent". Must it be copper? And what crystals are those?

lifewithmydogs said...

And Nola seems surprised when Barley goes for her! Poor little Barley! :P

IRIS E DONA said...

Poor Barley :):) !!!
and poor Goose ! he looks so sad !!
I hope his Mom come back soon!

Mitch and Molly said...

What a neat tip with the pennies and the water. We're gonna try that one. Thanks, Bert! Mom says thank you so much for the stunning poppy photo!

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

Molly The Wally said...

Top tip re pennies in a bag of water , thank you , I am going to try it out!
Best wishes Molly

Lassiter Chase and Benjamin said...

Wonder if the penny trick will work on keeping mosquitos away. Guess it's worth a try.

Casey said...

Hey, Bert, where did Your Vickie get that cool copper hanger? We've been having a fly problem lately!

Tell poor Goose to cheer up. He looks so sad!

Lydia Criss Mays said...

Genius idea with the pennies and ziploc bag. Your fly-stay-away is much prettier. Where did you find it?

Oh, please tell sweet Goose that his MOM will be home soon - and she's bringing him a treat. :)

Happy seeing beautiful!

Amber DaWeenie said...

Poor Goose sure does look sad.

Interesting about the flies! We need to look into that.

Those doodle dogs look like they're dancing. BWHahahahaha

snoopy@snoopysdogblog said...

Hey Bert,

Are you giving Goose lottsa cuddles? He does look a little sad - hang in there Goose, she's coming back :)

Loved the pics of everyone playing - so fun,

Have a great weekend,

Your pal Snoopy :)

georgia little pea said...

Dear Bert, is your friend the Dane super skinny or is it just the picture? The field of poppies is G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S! Have a great weekend and sleep tight. I'm going to, on my new big bed haha.

Mazzie @ Mazzie Takes Manhattan said...

Woof to you Bert!!!! Looks like your friend Goose is throwing himself a bit of a pity party. Since I've thrown cute a few of them for myself, I empathize.

And I'm super psyched to learn more about your pole vaulting event.

Much love to you and your Vickie - XXOO - Mazzie

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

Hey Bert, that fly chaser away thingie, that werk fur skeeters, too? Even if'n not, that do be pritty pawsome and I could do without the flies buzzing around me head, too. Grrrrr.

Carol said...

Hi Bert And Miss Vicky,
Although it looks like a ton of fun at your place, poor Goose looks so sad, Were gonna go look for a fly thing like that,we need one here, and the poppies are beautiful.

The silvers and more

The Army of Four said...

Awww! Poor Goose! Hang in there, buddy! Your MOM will be home soon! Grab him by the neck and throw him around a bit for me, would you, Bert? That's always fun. I think he needs cheered up.
We're so far behind in commenting that all we see are tails! Woo.
We never knew about the copper and crystal! That is a beautiful piece of art! Did your Vickie get that somewhere that my mom could order from on line? We're pretty sure the fly is the Kansas state bird. Really.
Beautiful poppies and deer!!! And we love the pix of your friends!

Two Doodles and a Dane said...

Poor Goose, look at that SAD face.

lol, we love the photos! Sure looks like a fun place to hang!


Bassetmomma said...

Great pics! I love Pepsi's name and that Nola, what a cracker! I did feel sad for Goose missing his Momma though. :(
