Working and Playing

Saturday In Pictures
The day began with getting hay
We make cool play areas in the winter for
our guests with the hay
We have two wolf hybrids staying with us for a few weeks
It is amazing to listen to them talking
Hopefully we can get them on video for you
You will feel like you are out in the wilderness
listening to the music of the forest.
They are so sweet yet there is a wild spirit
that appeals to the very deepest part of our souls.
Sweet Cat has been here two weeks
and is ready to go home
She misses her family.
Dakota is as crazy today as the day he came.
He is super playful.
After work, me, Abby, Scrappy and
Willa got to go over
to Goose's house to play.
He is the best host ever.
Willa loves playing at Goose's.  She gets to go
and get any toy she wants out of Goose's toy box.
Me, well I get to play ball, again and again and again.
That Michelle sure has a good throwing arm
and a great back yard to throw it in.
Michelle pulled out this bubble making thing.
I didn't get it, but Goose, he LOVES it.
You should go over to Goose's Site (Click Here) 
and check out how
awesome of a day we had.
I was tired and way thirsty but so afraid
someone would come and take my ball
But it is ok.
I handled it.
Have a wonderful Sunday everyone

Oh, wolf hybrids. They've always fascinated me.

The pics of your Saturday fun here and on Bert's blog are awesome, and it looks like a good time was had by all!

KB said...

Bert, You are too much! You just go and go and go. And then you somehow drink water with a ball in your mouth. Wow!

Love the bubbles. I'm going to visit Goose. And, thanks for the photo of sweet Willa. She's so lucky that you and Vickie had her join your family.

Sam said...

Nothing like laying in your water, right Bert?

Looks like a wonderful day and time over at Goose's!! There's something yummy waiting for you on my post!! :-D

Merlin Wylt said...

Bwahahaha! You drinking without letting go of the ball is great! I usually bury toys when I want a short break, but am afraid someone will steal them.

GOOSE said...

Bert Bert Bert. What can I say? I had a super fun time with you and the gang. I think I would have loved to help you with the hay, that looked like fun fun. And I can't wait to meet the hybrids.

That looks like a super fun Saturday!
I love how you wanted to keep the ball but get a drink at the same time, it's very sweet.

The Cat From Hell said...

Wowwie Zowwie! Yous guys sure look like yous is having fun!
BTW my hairy slobbery sister Cinnamon is part Dingo!
Yep. Her Mommy was 1/4 and her Daddy is 1/2. And boy oh boy she sure is a wild child!
PS when the coyotes howl at night, sometimes she yips back!

scotsmad said...

Such a great way to spend Sunday....except the bubbles. We're afraid of those!

Mitch and Molly said...

Looks like a busy, fun filled day.

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

Again, great photos and great fun!

The doctor I worked for in Alaska had a wolf hybrid--She made me a little nervous and she knew it, so I had to stay away from her...

What Remains Now said...

There is so much fun going on in this post I don't even know what to say other than...FUN! How cool that you got to go for a play date. I LOVE your "keep the ball safe" technique. Hey, water flows over a ball as easily as a tongue. You've got to do what you have to do.

Dexter said...

Bert. I bow to your superior problem solving skills. The tennis ball / water bowl. Yes! Why didn't I think of that?


Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Bibi-Chan, Gen-Chan, Vidock, Violette said...

I will often wash my ball in the drinking bowl at the end of a play session!

The wolf hybrids are beautiful! And I love that shot of Goose with the funny lips! *snicker*

You always have such fun guests at your place. We would love to see a video of the wolf hybrids talking. We might join them in conversation:)

Fun time at Goose's place - we have to find our way there too:)

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning.

you guys are always having so much fun.....we sure wished we lived closer so we could come for a visit

Murphy said...

Thanks for the tip on drinking water and still holding onto the ball. Mom likes the header pic too. Yup, that Michelle can really throw a ball. All the dogs in the county talk about it!

Your Pals,

Bert, that picture of you and your water and your ball made Mom smile so much! Our great brother Booter used to do that - it brought back a lot of wonderful memories!!!
Dave and I would love to hear the wolf hybrids talking! I might even be able to translate a little for you. I was taught to sing by the coyotes, before Stormy taught me the ways of the Siberian, so I might understand a few howls here and there!
Play bows,

Hi Bert, I think it is wonderful that you are providing a safe haven for the wolves. Did you know there is a Wolf Sanctuary in Fort Collins that is very cool. I have a friend that works there. I also wanted to ask your Vickie what site she gets your headers on-they are so beautiful and festive.
Happy Day.

We love that you have your ball kept safe in your water bowl!

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Wowza Bert, we would love to hear a video of your wolf hybrids. Glad you had such a good day with Goose too. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

That was a big day Bert! I get a little possessive of my balls too, completely understandable!

browndogcbr said...

Hi Y'all!

Bert, I understand completely why you like your ball better than bubbles!

Y'all come by now,
Hawk aka BrownDog

klahanie said...

'Hay' Bert!
Wow, what a Saturday for you all and hay, what neat photos. I must go now cause I'm still trembling over the fireworks that the silly humans having been setting off in the streets over here in England.

Pawsitive wishes and doggy kisses, Penny xx

Cotton said...

Those pics just keep getting better!

haopee said...

I remember reading this caption of a dog holding a ball in his mouth with the background in the picture of a vet clinic. It said, I'm holding on to this one because the last time I went in, I lost two of my balls.

Huggies and Cheese,


stellaroselong said...

Bert: Those wolves are very wolfy looking.....
I would love to come over and play with all your mom wishes our back yard looked like yours but dad says no! Boo Dad!!

Oh Bert,

You're so funny, not even leaving your ball to have a drink!!

I was trying to mind my bone the other day when Cosmo was here, but I fell asleep in the end and he swooped in!! Doh!!

You've got lots of awesome friends buddy :)

Your pal Snoopy :)

RYKER said...

Ha, I do that with my ball too!
Looking forward to seeing more about those wolf hybrids, love the howls!

Wyatt said...

What a good idea...drink with the toy still in your mouth! I take my toy to the pond and stop for a drink and then forget about it. Mom thinks that if we ever drain the pond, we will find about 87,000 toys down there!


Lydia Criss Mays said...

This is spectacular! Fielding hay, chasing tennis balls, over indulging on water. It's a beautiful day for sure!

Keisha said...

Oh wow, u can had fun!!!

Bassetmomma said...

What a great Saturday you had! those pictures are all just wonderful. I love the one of your head in the water bowl with your ball!
