Two Days in June

Hey Sankissjuice, Allred sent you a picture and a question.
"hey there, I am so glad I finally have a fan.  I am sure you can understand the frustration I feel living in this world of idiot dogs.  I try my best to tolerate them but, Honestly, look at most of them.  Big ears, long noses, bushy tails, and oh my gosh.....all that "Happy" they spread.  "Oh, I am so happy, I have the best family in the world, I am the luckiest dog in the whole world....yahda yadah yahda"


But I digress, what I wanted to say was, thank you for all your support of me and well, this might be a bit too much to ask, but I don't know much about you and wondered when you were gonna do a blog so we could get to know you better.  Well, that is about all that dumbo Bert is going to allow me to say so off I go to my secret hiding place to wait for some simpleton to walk by so I can slap them on the butt...."


Bert Here
Well you know that yesterday My Vickie promised me a great day and boy did she come through.
We went up into some beautiful country and met my search and rescue friends Tucker, Murphy and Zoey and Annie came along too.  The plan was to do some training with our teams from Idaho.
While Tucker Murhpy and Annie waited around camp Me and My Vickie set up a problem for my friend Zoey from Bear Lake.  She is working very hard to get certified as a search dog.
The countryside was incredible, so being a victim was more fun than you could imagine.  I bet Shawnee would have liked hiking along with us here.
After we were all done, I found a pond full of what My Vickie called.   "Liquid Black Gold"
My Vickie did a video of both our walk on Friday with all my friends, including little Stanley and Murphy and then of our great Saturday with a better explanation of how I got to look like I look in the picture above.  


Happy Sunday everyone
Love
Bert

Wish I could have been there. You know how me and MOM like playing the victims part. Maybe another day. I like it when you get dirty. That means you had all kinds of crazy fun.
Blessings,
Goose

Sally Ann and Andy said...

Wow, you look great! I love getting dirty, but Mommy sometimes says no. I don't know why. Oh well.

You have one heck of a good life mate! Love the new header! Deccy x

Charlotte said...

Oh my God!!! Black liquid gold - DARLING is this real necessary??? But okay the most important thing is - you have fun and I'm sure your Vickie has a good shampoo...
And a little note to Allred - this little evil cat should not forget, what a lovely friend he has with Nellie! But maybe if he has a beped fan too (finally)he will be more bearable...(and we also would like to know a little bit more about sankissjuice...) All my love your Charlotte

Prancer Pie said...

Life is dirty. Enjoy. What a pawsome video. Tell your Vickie we enjoyed it. xoxoxo

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Dirty Bert! I wonder if Mommy will get a heart attack if I played in black liquid. Hahaha.

Love, Whisky

Allred, my dear

Yes, I am your super-fan because I check this blog every day, sometimes a few times a day :)

I would lurrve to start a blog, as cool as yours to spread happiness to the world. Unfortunately, my babies are not with me. They are under the care of their grandparents in a different country. I know, I am a bad parent. I left them to pursue more useless crap i.e. education! Who needs more education, right? Big mistake!

I am planning to bring them over to be with me next year. Need to save up money to rent a pet-friendly place etc. So, please pray for me. Vancouver is a gorgeous place so if they are here with me, I am sure we can share many beautiful photos and wonderful adventures.

My Sasa had a kitty I named Tiger (Ti-girl) who looked just like you, Allred. Too bad, she died in an accident. Every time you dedicate a blog posting to me, I have tears in my eyes...

Sasa can't stand Rich Boy either cos he is always sniffing her butt. Does Bert do that to you too?

I now have Bert's photo on my desktop as wallpaper because he reminds me to live life to the fullest. Please bear with him. He can't help it. We, miserable humans need their inexhaustible happiness. And your species remind me to take it easy e.g. It's OK that I need to sleep a lot, I'll live longer. Haha!Life's a breeze :)

Love you both, your fan always.

I want to know how you get so many terrifying pictures of Allred! If Barbie came across him she would run screaming just from that look!

Also, that mud looks like it would be very good for your skin!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Bert that must have been the mostest WONDERFUL time Ever... What a wonderful Liquid Black Gold patch you found. It must have been FANGtastic fur your nails and paw pads. Spa Day fur sure.
Do you think Allred just needs a FUREND?? If he had a FUREND do you suppose he would be... NICER? I'm just askin beclaws I would be GLAD to send Ernie to him.

~Shelle said...

Oh, wow!! What fun you had! Our mom gets ever so twitchy when she sees us even getting near the dried out creek bed... something about at some point its gonna bet wet, then they will be wet and we'll have to haul in to stinky dogs for a bath... seriously twitchy.

I am so glad Mayor Frankie mentioned us yesterday cause wow, we are finding so many really cool friends! Mom added you along to her Google Reader and clicked the "Google Friend Connect" thingy... :) So now we can read all your posts and be ever so jealous of the good times you have.

Mom is just ever so jealous because of that field of poppies at the beginning of the post.. Poppies and Daisies are two of her favorite flowers ever.

Have a great Sunday!!
Milo and Dixie (mom, Shelle, is making tea cause she is getting twitchy after thinking about giving us a bath!!)

Oh, the black ooze! I can't even look without having a panic attack!

Murphy said...

Great video Bert! We were so excited to be in it too! I bet having that liquid gold all over your legs was great. We love getting all dirty and muddy. It is the bestest feeling. One of these days we're gonna meet Big ol' Murphy. He looks like he'd be real nice. It looks like June is going to be a fun month. Oh, wait, just as I said that Stanley reminded me about Tuesday. OK, most of it will be fun. Tell your Miss Vickie we had fun too!

Your friends,

Murphy & Stanley

Mazzie @ Mazzie Takes Manhattan said...

Woof to you Bert!!!! You look very pleased with yourself in the photo where you have mud all over your feet. I'm so jealous!!!! And you have to make sure that Allred doesn't let his newfound fame go to his head. Much love to you - XXOO - Mazzie

NCmountainwoman said...

Bert, I had to quick scroll down past that Allred!!! I loved your video. Aren't you (and your Vickie) so glad Goldens are wash and wear? But did you HAVE to stick your sweet nose in it too?

KEY WEST COLLIES said...

Allred doesn't look happy about being in the Search Dog Unit. Maybe he wants to be a Search Cat. BOL.

What a great video! It sure was a pretty place to get "lost", especially the liquid gold and the beautiful forest.

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

Wow, Bert, I was looking just like you yesterday with all that liquid black gold. If'n that be wot is be called, then why did mom hose it all off of me? Hey, the udder night I thought Allred escaped and was at MY house! No lie. We woke up hearing "RrreoowwWW HISSS RrreoowwWW HISS RrreoowwWW..." Turns out a feral kitteh was in the winder and our kittehs went CRACKER CAT! Just like Allred!
