A little Clarification "From Allred"

Note from Vickie:  Sorry everyone, I am not responsible for any comments made on this blog by Allred.   It seems I have little if any power over him or his temperament.  We just try to co-exist.

Apparently some of you small minded four legged, namby-pamby's out there think that I don't mean business when it comes to Goose and his "Mom".  

Some of you think the look on her face in last weeks photo was of her laughing or giggling,
That is not a giggle.  That is the face of a "Pastor" who is in fear for her nitwit dogs face and eyes, and maybe even a little concern that I might miss my aim and claw her eyes out by mistake.

That lugubrious, lummox, Goose has been trying to intimidate and threaten me for almost a year now.  

FYI:  Rodomontade, thats what I'm doing behind your back you fatuous waif.


It is hot outside and so every-body, and this includes that blockhead Bert,      

I am now reclaiming the inside of the house.  Everybody better BEWARE.

So call me, Satan, The Devil, Beelzebub, Old Nick, Prince of Darkness, Belial, Apollyon or Mephistopheles.  Call me what ever you want, but if you have any brains at all, YOU WILL ALL STAY OUT OF MY WAY  until the temps cool down some.  

Over and OUT....

Oh Yeah, and by the way.
Bert and My Vickie are off mourning something so here is a quick note regarding the Olympics.  Not that I care a diddly squat about them, but I guess, for Vickie, it wouldn't kill me to mention......
Be sure to check out HERE to get the latest of what is coming up for the Pet Olympics of 2012.  and be sure to check in here on Thursday to see the contestants of the Pole and Jumping competition.

What do you get when you put Goose and Allred together

 So, I was out taking my walk this afternoon with my own personal Dog Walker Areane.  We walked our usual path which ends up at a big canal full of......You Guessed It........WATER.  It is very hot here so My Own Personal Dog Walker lets me swim as long as I like.  It was so refreshing.

When I got home I found this:
Michelle and Goose were visiting and at the same time Allred returned from his latest "Walk-a-bout"   Now you may think that it looks like Michelle (Gooses Human) looks afraid of Allred.  The truth is.....she is more scared of Goose grabbing Allred and ripping him apart.  Goose doesn't care for cats.

Allred, who as we know, being the devil himself is afraid of Nothing.......Not even Goose. So he saunters on over, right in front of Goose and climbs up on Michelle's lap.
 Goose came over to let Allred know that this was "His" human.  Allred gave him "THE LOOK"
Michelle backed away in order to keep her face and hands out of the way of the upcoming battle that would surely ensue.  

We were all waiting breathlessly.  Anticipating the blood and carnage that was about to happen. one is one dared move......they stared into each others eyes.
the room was still.   the air was heavy.

And then
Guess what happened.
 NOTHING.  That's right. NOTHING.   

Sheesh.  What's up with that.

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

For The Moose Fans

I am turning my blog over to My Vickie today.  Hope you enjoy.

Couldn't help putting in these two links to our trip up to check on our moose this week. Both videos were take by my friend John Hemenway who is a wildlife photographer. 
This first one is a bit long but well worth it.  Five bull moose in all.  It was so incredible.  The two that are playfully sparing are brothers who hang out together.  Check out the antlers as they come near the eye.  Thank goodness the velvet is still on.

                                   OR CLICK HERE

This one is very short but it is playful and cute to watch as the little one bounces through the forest and tries to engage a deer to play with it.  This little one thought I was a playmate and darted right to me.  When I realized what it was doing and that momma was so close, I had to firmly tell her "No, go away little one"  
Yes, I do have a bit of sense.  Not much....but a bit.

Thanks Bert for letting me take over for a bit.  As a reward, how about I take you swimmin?

This and That

 Remember how My Vickie told you all about how she gets rid of flies.  The copper wind twister with the crystal in it.  Well those are not only good for keeping flies away but the one that hangs outside by our picture window is also our afternoon entertainment.  Can you see what happens to my picture on the wall.  Our room is full of these big colorful reflections that dance through the living room like little magical faeries.
It is way cool
 We are still having tons of trouble with our internet.  It takes about five minutes for each of your blogsites to come up and another five or six tries before we can leave a comment.  So we wanted you to know, we are reading them as often as we can but it takes so long, we just give up on commenting until we get this fixed.


In the mean time I still get all that I want, swimming, playing with friends, walks and now I have a new friend who comes and takes me jogging. with her a couple of times a week.  (Thanks Roselyn, plus we love it when your mom and you come visit, especially when you bring us treats)
My Buddy Goose is coming today to stay for a few days.  I was not able to contact him and warn him before he here is what happened.
 You see Allred has found a new place to scope out his victims.  He has figured out how to get onto the shade tarp just above the entry gate.  Oh he is a sneaky one.

BTW Roo, My Vickie said that Allred got his name in a very boring way.  When Allred moved in with us, She was reading a book by Garth Allred.  She was on the phone talking to someone about this crazy cat who had taken possession of my world when they asked "What did you name the cat"  She looked around trying to think of a fitting name and saw the cover of the book. Thus the name Allred was born.  That's it, nothing special, just grabbing things out of the air.  Who would have thunk.....
 Anyway, I didn't warn Goose of where Allred was waiting and well, Well, all I can say is,   "Poor Goose"  He got the surprise of his life.
I bet he aged 2 years when Allred flew off his perch landing just inches from Goose who was waiting for Michelle to return snarled at him and ran into the house.  Poor Goose.   He is still out there looking up at the shade screen in fear, just in case the beast returns.
 Truth is, we are all just a little afraid of that area of the play area now.
 My Vickie and John went for a quick hike last night and boy did they strike it big.  They have been hoping all season that the Moose would return to our area and guess what?  They found 8 moose on their short three hour hike.  And the guy in the picture above was the smallest of the bulls.  I mean, My Vickie and John were like two little kids laughing and talking about their hike all day today.
They found two mommas with babies.  Now normally we have twins about 90 % of the time but this year they all seem to just have one.  But oh, my aren't they cute.
Here is a short video of this youngin as it wanders through the area about 30 feet from My Vickie.
He tried two times to come and play with her, but she told him, that it wasn't a good idea and that she didn't think his mom would be happy with that.  So they just checked each other out from a distance.  Anyway, check him out.  

As the sun was setting they came across this momma, the dear and if you look to the left you can see her youngin heading to a bull who is up on the hill.  That didn't go over well cause Momma came and chased the bull away about 40 seconds later.  
The sunset was incredible for them too.  It was like the perfect evening, except for the fact that I wasn't there.  Oh well, I gotta let her go off on her own now and again.  You know, so she can learn to be independent and all.
Back home, I got this bandanna in the mail from Osker a while back.  I kept trying to figure out what you do with a bandanna
I felt like one of those Pioneer women who crossed the plains with it on my head.  that can't be right....
Seriously, this just cant be right.  Osker what do I do, what is this for, how do I wear it.   

OH, I get it....this is for me to wear around my neck to let you know that I am a host to the Olympic games.  
Now that is better, I look way better with it around my neck.  So thanks to all of you who entered the Jumping Portion of the Olympics.  My Vickie and I are excited to put together our post for this event.  
So we are off to try and pull up a few posts before midnight.  Crazy Internet.
See you all soon......I hope

Note from Allred

Well, that blockhead (and I mean that literally) Bert is off somewhere doing something puerile and callow so I have taken over his blog to remind all of you that there are just a few more days left for you to get your entries in for the Olympics.

Now personally I don't give a diddly squat about the "Olympics" but it is apparent to me that this is important to my Sweet Nellie so if I have any chance of winning her heart, I figured I better get on board.

So to check out all the other "Olympic Categories" you can click HERE  

I also checked the list of entries for Nitwit (Bert)'s category of jumping and thought I better list it here so you could know if they got your submission.  


So Miss Nellie, I did good, didn't I.  Do ya love me more now?

See Beautiful Blog Hop

In church we sing a song that says "There is Beauty all around..when there's love at home. There is joy in every sound, when there's love at home."  another saying says; "love is where the heart is"
My heart found, beauty and love this week at almost every turn.   I wish for all of you my blogville friends, much beauty and joy.

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. ~Albert Einstein

 Never lose an opportunity to see anything that is beautiful. 
It is God's handwriting - a wayside sacrament. Welcome

it in every fair face, every fair sky, every fair flower. 

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Nature holds all the answers - go outside and ask some questions - open your heart and listen to the response! ~Amethyst Wyldfyre,

 If you truly love Nature, you will find beauty everywhere. ~Vincent Van Gogh

"Life is full of beauty.  Notice it,  Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces.  Smell the rain, and feel the wind.  Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams."
Ashley Smith 

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
