Dougal Update and Saturday Fun in the Sun/Water

I know it is Sunday but this is because
I had so much going on yesterday
that I didn't have time to
make a post and read all yours.
(I'll catch up tonight"
First I want to start with an update.
Remember my buddy Dougal and his Snake Bite?
Click HERE  and HERE to catch up
Well here is how it looks three months later.
Much better, but still our Dougal is having
to wear the "Cone of Shame"
Can you imagine having to wear
that thing for THREE whole months?
This is Weena, (Dougals little sis)
and the happy looking bouncy thing
in the back on the right is
Trixie.  Trixie was found
starving and scavenging for food
behind McDonalds by Dougals
family Kit and Jon
They did the same thing a lot of us do.
They brought her home,
Took her to the vet,
Fattened her up and then
when it was time to Find her a Home
Decided she already had found it.
Welcome home Trixie
After a long summer of not
seeing some of my friends
we started up our Saturday
Walking group.
Boy a ton of people and dogs
showed up.  It was great.
I led them all to the river for a quick
swim.  It was cold, but oh ya just
cannot pass up a good dip
if you get the chance.
Then we started our walk
and yahoo, found more water.
I dont' know where Goose is
but I did some fishing.
and caught a 8 pound rock.
Our Saturday walks include lots of kids too
and check out what the kid is doing.
Yep, finding rocks for me.
Dang it all, though
My Vickie said he couldn't
throw it and I couldn't
try and catch it.
Gigi showed up, I haven't seen
her all summer.
Good looking, don't ya think.
We was all walking
(Goose, Logan, Baci and Annie
had gone on ahead)
when this photographer lady came up
asked if she could get pictures of
all of us.
Well of course we obliged.
Then we headed to the off lead
part of our walk. lead.....running, swimming
I'm already off and gone.
Come on everyone
I found a good deep spot.
What a beautiful day it was.
I love Saturdays.
I love Sunday too
I love Monday, Tuesday
Wednesday, Thursday
and Friday.

Poor pup! I hope that leg heals soon. And who could resist keeping that little Trixie! Adorable! All the dogs playing in the water look like they are having so much fun. Cute!
Happy Sunday!

Holy cow! Poor Dougal and his humans. This is terrible. I'm glad he is doing so well. Paws crossed for continued healing. That picture of Weena & Trixie is one of the cutest pictures I've ever seen! I love Trixie's teefies. It looks like you all had a lovely day. Friends are the best thing in the whole world.

I love seeing you and your friends out and about! I hope your friend Dougall is doing better-looks much better!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Poor Dougal, we are happy to hear he is doing better, but that leg still looks sore. We hope he is getting lots of good treats for those three months of coning.

We read about all your fun at Goose's - we just love how you dive in that water.

I wish we had a group like that around here to go on walks with. That picture of little Trixie in the sink is precious and I love the way your hair gets all kinky when wet.

OMD, Trixie is soooo little and cute, yeah for her finding her perfect forever home! I'm super glad that Dougal is healing, but I'd be going "nuts" if I had to wear the cone of shame for three months!! [shudder] You all looked like it was the perfect walk with the perfect group of friends! Have a great Sunday!

GOOSE said...

You didn't tell me you caught a rock fish. Those are pretty rare....not. I am glad Mr. Dougal is getting better. But DANG a cone for THREE months. And of course his family took in Trixie, they are that kind of people...the good kind. I hope to see you tonight. If not see ya on Tuesday.

Smile With Your Tail said...

Such awesome photos...we didn't know you were part submarine! hehe...

Poor Dougal....he is looking better, but darn those snakes! we are lucky we don't have them over here :(


Merlin Wylt said...

You are a crazy dog, sticking your head totally under water like that! Up to you eyes, sure, but never put the ears in!

Reilly / Denny Cowspotdogs said...

You guys have so much fun - you make us all jealous - we want to come and live with you!

Mason The Big Stinky Dog said...

Sounds Fun Bert. We must live in one of the LAMEST states ever because we do not have one of those!


NanaNor's said...

Hi there, I loved seeing your pics of yesterdays fun in the sun and water.
So glad Dougal us getting better. I hope you've had a wonderful Sunday-and have a great Monday.
Hugs, Noreen & Hunter

Kirsten (peacefuldog) said...

Whoa that rattlesnake story is harrowing! Glad Dougal is recovering--what a relief!

That walking group looks like about the most fun ever. Glad you got to stick your head all the way under the water.

Golden Woofs! SUGAR said...

Woof! Woof! You are such a Golden DOG when you see a body of water. What FUN walk and group. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Wyatt said...

Bert, you are such a happy fella...that makes us happy!

Wyatt and Stanzie

P.S. glad we don't have bad snakes here...

georgia little pea said...

Dear Bert, you are the happiest dog I know. Do you think you could bottle what you have and send some to my Grochy Typist ASAP? I can never see enough pictures of you with your head underwater! Sooooo cool! Maybe a fish would be tastier than a rock though? X

Val said...

Wow tell Miss Vickie those are some great photos. Looks like the gang had a wonderful time. Glad to see Dougal is doing better--but 3 months is a very long time to wear the cone.

Sue B said...

oh Bert you are one 'houndsome devil' Tucker would give you a run for your money in that deep pool!
checked out your buddy, Dougal's link..heartbreaking, the poor guy! be sure to keep us all posted on his progress.

Keisha said...

scotsmad said...

That was a fantastic walk. we love meeting up with our friends on Saturday mornings.

We're not allowed to walk some places now, or go off lead because of snakes. We're happy Dougal is improving...but that cone, that's terrible.

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy said...

Thanks for taking me with you via pictures on this fabulous walk. I will cross my paws for Dougal, he is such a brave dog - 3 months with a cone - think he deserves a place in the Guinness Book ;o)

Frank The Tank said...

Hi Bert!
Owwww Poor Dougal I hope that leg heals soon!
I really love the photos of the walk, it looks like you all had such a good time, I love the photo of you in the water in the deep spot, you have the most handsome face Bert! Tell Vickie that the photos she has taken are fab!
Love, Licks and Hugs from your Furiend Frank xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Casey said...

What a fun day!! I hope you found lots of grreat rocks.

Murphy said...

We were glad our pawrents took us to the fort even if we had to cut it short. It was amazing how many dogs were there! We saw Miss Vickie last night but she scooted out of there before we could say hello. Mom did not know she was there but I saw her and was making a little quiet noise and then I pointed her out to mom. Have a great day Bert!

Your Pals,

Murphy & Stanley

Bassetmomma said...

How great to be doing your walk group again. It looks like so much fun. that Dougal's tail still looks nasty, poor guy. How great that Trixie has her loving forever home now too! :)

Blueberry's human said...

Golly - that snake bite is nasty! I cannot imagine the cone of shame being on for that long. Sheesh. :(

What a great walking group! That looks like so much fun!


Gee, we thought wearing the cone of shame for three days was long

chicamom85 said...

Bert, pawsome pictures. It makes me happy to see you in the water with your pals. We are lucky pups to have so much love.

Happy Thanksgiving

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Welcome home Trixie! I can tell you will be loved and cherished.

Poor Dougal! We are sending White Dog healing energies and positive thoughts that the leg will get better and the cone will coe off.

And, oh yeah, GREAT walk gathering and fun.

Jeanne Pursell said...

Hey Bert! We just love coming over here and reading all about how happy you are and all of the cool things you are doing with your Vickie and all of your friends at the park! We feel bad for poor Dougal...he must be in a lot of pain...poor guy. Hope he's feeling much better real soon!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

Collie222 said...

What a wonderful day! And great pictures! We love Trixie's story!

The Army of Four said...

Bert, my heart goes out to Dougal! You don't even want to know how long I had to be in the cone of shame after my last surgery! Sure, Mom and Dad started calling it a hoodie to make me feel more hip and all ... but I just could NOT leave my surgery site alone! I COULDN'T!!! (You have my mom's email address - please email her if you'd like to know what we finally had to revert to in order to get me out of the cone.)
I just LOVE your group walks! What a blast that has to be. I wish Dave and I could join you guys!
Play bows,
PS: Check this out; maybe it'll cheer Dougal up:

RYKER said...

You lead such a fun and busy life, Bert!
We are in love with Trixie, what a sweet little bugger!

Teddy said...

Looks like you guys had a lot of fun!! Im really hoping your pals, snakebite has improved, that looks so sore poor dude!

Mazzie @ Mazzie Takes Manhattan said...

Woof to you Bert!!!! OMG - we love the uber handsome photo of you in the deep spot you found. You look like a 4 legged movie star ... swoon. And Dougals' 2 legged family sound like such lovely people to save Trixie like they did. My assistant and I wish that there were more 2 legged folks in the world like them. Much love to you and your Vickie - XXOO - Mazzie

Sagira said...

Looks like you had such a great time!
I have a friend named Dougal to. :)
