Tuesday Snippets

 Early morning game of "King of the Hill" with my buddy Goose
 Then off to the river for a nice cool down
 Pretty flowers growing along the river
 Goose working an area looking for a stick.  
Down to the river to wash the stick off.
 My Vickies favorite view of me.  (ha ha)
 Allred was in his regular "Happy" mood.
 Now it is bath time for my hospital Visits tomorrow.  Goose is telling Michelle how to do it.
 I am not really happy about this.
"Please My Vickie, Save Me"
 "Well, on second thought, she does a pretty good rub down"
 Goose gets a "Sympathy Bath"  Sympathy for me.
 He is a really great sport
 And he loves the "Rub Down" Towel Off.
 I am watching thoughtfully.
 And for the completed "Dry Off" we run, play and jump
"Yeah Goose,  Good One"

Good Day to All of You
Bert

GOOSE said...

Buddy. Thanks for making my day great! Did you know that was the first time EVER I have had a bath outside with a hose? Normally I will only take a bath in the tub. But I'd do anything to make it better for you. And you know what? It was not that bad. Playing ball afterwards was a bonus. Your going to smell great for the hospital.
Blessings,
Goose

Dear Bert, I will NEVER understand how you put your head in the water like that. I wish I wasn't such a scaredy cat with swimming. [No offence AllRed.]

In my current state of lameness and associated inability to do anything much, I am SO envious of you guys!

Woofs,
Tommy

Hi Bert,
Your pal, Goose, asked me to pay a visit to you and it didn't take me long to get here because I already had a preview of your fun on his blog. I don't know which pictures I like the best so I will just say I loved them all but the best pic (to me) was the one of you swimming where only your backside was showing. Very funny!
I am your newest follower and would love it if you followed us sometime!

2browndawgs said...

Glad you and Bert don't mind baths. You are both good sports. (The Save Me picture is adorable. :-))

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

EXCEPT for the Baff... that was a super day. Love the pic where you and Goose are BOTH caught some Major AIR!!

browndogcbr said...

Hi Y'all,

Thanks so much for stoppin' by for a visit. I'm so glad y'all could make it!

I love gettin' a bath! Hopin' my Human gives me a good one before we go back to the cool in the mountains! Hope, hope!

Y'all come back now,
Hawk aka BrownDog

Agnes B Bullock said...

What a fun day! (Except for the bahs, of course!)

Murphy said...

Nice of Michelle to be the official bath lady! BTW, noticed the artificial turf. Mom wants to put some in the Doodle Clubhouse. Please ask your mom to email my mom and tell her where she bought it and how well it holds up.

Your friends,

Murphy & Stanley

Hey Bert, What a fun day with your best furbuddy. Loved seeing you on the hill and also just playing. You look spectacular!
Woofs, Hunter & Noreen

Mazzie @ Mazzie Takes Manhattan said...

Woof to you Bert!!!! I would love to come play "King of the Hill" with you and Goose, especially because there are very few hills of that size and stature in NYC.

And I share your sentiments re bath time, but I guess we just have to go with flow! And my assistant, like your Vickie, really enjoys your rear view!

Much love to you - XXOO - Mazzie

Dawn said...

Looks like you two had a pretty great day!

Lassiter Chase and Benjamin said...

Love the picture of Goose shaking the water off when he is being hosed down. We love to make sure humans get wet too when us dogs get a bath.

heyitsjethere said...

Hey Bert, Jet here.

Nice to make your acquaintance. What a playdate with Goose. Mom does spa day inside, bet it's more fun outside! Mom asked me to share that you're very handsome. (Yeah, she has a thing for goldens...)

Mason the Dog's Mom said...

Hey Bert!

Have been reading Goose for awhile now and didn't know you had a blog! Bowza, I thought your morning photos were great!

~Stinky Kisses, Mason

The toweling is the favorite part for our Lab(s) (I'm not used to the singular yet). I hope that the hospital visit is fun!
