Ready for a New Year

Imagine my surprise when MOM took me to play with Bert before she had to meet with a family about a funeral she will be doing Tuesday. 

A little tug of war.  Bert has a good technique in that he keeps low.  But he under estimates my head shake to rattle his brain.

This is a little "kiss" for Bert from his beloved Charlotte.  Sorry Charlotte I had to keep the Frisbee between us.

The things I do for a yummmie.  How long do I have to hold this?

Ready for MOM to toss the Frisbee.  I think Bert has a head start.  He is getting really good at catching it.

Then we went to run in the woods and jump over some fences.

And of course we had to play in the water.  It's not a complete outing for Bert if we don't dip our toes.  Well I dip my toes, he DIVES in.

Whew I am tired, I can barley write my blog.  I need to get a little shut eye before the clock strikes 12.  See ya all next year.

Dear Lord for this coming year just one request I bring:
I do not pray for happiness, or any earthly thing—
I do not ask to understand the way you lead me,
But this I ask: Teach me to do the thing that pleases you.

I want to know your guiding voice, to walk with you each day.
Dear Lord make me swift to hear and ready to obey.
And thus the year I now begin a happy year will be—
If I am seeking just to do the thing that pleases you.

Do not [earnestly] remember the former things; neither consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

 Isaiah 43:18-19

  14. Hello Goose.
    We stumbled across your blog and we just love it!

    Look forward to reading your 2012 posts, happy new year :)


  15. Hi Goose! We wish we could have been there with you and Bert!


  16. Hi Goose, is your momma a preachette?


  17. That is so cool, Goose! What denomination are y'all?


  18. Well, Goose sounds like you had another great day with Bert. I can't believe how well you stood there with that treat on your nose! LOL! Since I do love reading your blog so much I have passed on the Liebster Award to you. You can go to my blog to follow the simple requirements. Congratulations!

  19. Great post, Goose. I can tell that you and Bert are great buddies. Please don't rattle his brain too much. He has important work to do as a therapy dog! And, all retrievers are the same about water, regardless of how cold it is, they dive all the way into it!

    I hope that 2012 brings you good health and happiness.

  20. Looks like you had a super fun day with Bert! We know he is so happy you introduced him to Frisbee, not to mention being so generous and thoughtful and giving him one of his very OWN! You are both quite the fence jumpers, too! Very impressive.
    Wishing you all the best in the new year and beyond!
