Pick me Pick Me

Our Humans took us out for a walk today and got in a competitive mood.  It was bitter cold and the wind was making it colder.  But the scenery was beautiful.  So here is the deal.....They want you to vote on who took the best pictures.
 Who could hold their frozen cold hands still enough to get quality pictures, who could catch the best blue sky, mountainous background, icy waters.....
 We are asking you to make a vote for your favorite pictures.
 The winner or My MOM) gets to choose their favorite charity and the loser is going to donate $50.00.
 Thanks for voting.....                            
Now go to Bert's mBlog and see what his Vickie did.  I would like to remind you that Allred, the Devil Cat, did ruin Bert and Vickies Computer and they are working with a temporary computer.  And let’s just say that the computer is OLD and they can’t use it like the one Allred destroyed.  So cut Vickie some slack in the “quality” of the photos as well as how many photos she is able to share.
Now, take a look and get out Bert's Blog Blog and then vote.
Runnin on the edge

Ice on Willard Bay

Me on the rocks with the froozen bay behind. If I were a drink I'd be called "Goose on the rocks". hehhe

Frozen Bay

My reflection in a pool of water
Our beautiful mountains

Me and my buddy Bert, side by side. I love this guy

Nothing like digging with a friend

Coming down the ridge

Cool huh?

Yep on another ridge

Check out the hawk

And again
Now  I want to be perfectly clear.  Those last two shots of the hawk would not have been possible if Bert's Vickie did not get my MOM in the right postion.  So really these two belong to both of them.

Now go check out Bert's Blog.


  1. Dang, those are some pretty fine looking photos! I particularly like Running On The Edge, the ice shot and the reflection photo. They are all really good but those are my favorites. OK, now I gotta check out Bert's . . .

  2. OK, back from Bert's blog. (BTW, the link didn't work.) I really don't want to vote because I think you both did a great job on the photos. However, if I am forced to vote I will have to give it to Goose because there were 3 that I favored. The pics made me want to get a dog so I could take pictures of it.

  3. Hi Goose,
    me started at Bert's and me thoughts they was all so wonderful me could not choose. Then me came here and Bert - your Mommy blew me away! Me just LOVES the picture of your reflection!
    Oh Dear, now me has to goes back and tell Bert!

  4. No question about it, your mom got the best variety of pictures. I love the hawk and the reflection shots and the ice ones and the mountain in the background with you in the foreground.

    My Vickie is already getting her wallet out.


  5. You've got some beautiful scenery where you live and you both got some nice shots... so I'm giving you each 1/2 a vote.

  6. Hi Goose! We finally started following you cuz we felt that we already knew you from Bert's blog! Both set of pics are pawsome! The Mommy can't seem to choose! xoxo

  7. So many fab pictures! We love them all, especially the mudddy paw!

    Wyatt and Stanzie

  8. Both of you win! Split the pot 50/50!

  9. Crikey...Both sets of pictures are brilliant shots.
    So we say you split the donation $25 each!
    We love the reflection of you Goose and Bert's muddy paw.

  10. You and Bert are the BEST of friends! How great is that...that you two can go out and dig and swim and run together!! Our vote is split right smack down the middle...we love all of the pictures!!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

  11. Oh Goose, that's too hard. I really love your ice picture and hope you had a good time!

  12. Hi Goose

    Well, I love all the pics ... yours and Bert's ones ... so I think you have to split the donation ...
    (loved your reflection in the water and Bert´s mooddy paw)

  13. You're kiddin' right? I has to vote between da two of ya'll?
    Both sets are incredible. But they differ in composition and color so I can't decide! I say split da donation. I am no help am I?

    Goose on da it!

    PS;Incredible hawk shot

  14. Okay Goose! This way to hard to just pick one!! I love love love your reflection picture, so you are getting 1/2 of my vote!! Just maybe you can split the donation??


  15. Goose, like I said to Bert... in Blogville we Love to SHARE so I think you should Share the Win and the Donations.

    BOTH are full of BEAUTIFUL pictures. You really do live in a gorgeous area.

  16. Gosh, I can't choose! These are all great! I am going to say it's a tie! I love the idea of sharing the donation. My favorite picture of yours is the one with your reflection. They are ALL lovely.

    Your pal, Pip

  17. Wow, love all the photos. I would call it a tie!!
    Your reflection and Bert's muddy paw are priceless photos. I agree share the win and donate to 2 charities. Everybody WINS!!

  18. It has to be a tie because all the pictures are just so beautiful!

  19. This is so unfair - how could we possibly choose between good friends! AND both of your photos are just awesome. We agree - split the prize - it's all for a good cause.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  20. Hi Goose, I like your mom's photos and both sets are so good but if I'm to be honest, Ms Vickie's photos are just a tad better in my humble opinion. At least no one really looses.
    Hugs, Noreen

  21. Really great pictures. And hooray, I can vote both because I like the last two pictures best!

  22. Hi Y'all,

    Love those last two pics. That last pic of Bert looking so majestic sort of swung the vote ever so slightly in his favor.

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  23. You two have put us all in a very tough spot. Both sets are awesome. What a hike!!!!!!

    I have this feeling that you're both going to choose the same charity, and you probably have a special deal to split the donation :)

    That being said, if forced to vote, I have to vote for Bert's Vickie's photos. I was being swung toward yours when I saw the hawk... but then you gave Bert's Vickie credit for them...

    Keep having SO much fun!!

  24. I loved every single one of them and admire you both for braving the cold to get them.

  25. Goose - I just posted at Bert's place...I have to tell you that I loved all of the pictures!

    My favorites were the reflection of you in the water, and Bert's muddy paw! Imagine! (OK, the mountains were pretty impressive, but I just seemed to see only you two!!)

    I voted for....

    Both of you! Guess your mom is going to have to come up with half of that donation!

    You guys just made it too difficult to choose! And you can't go wrong in any pictures when you have the scenery and backdrops that you guys have! That was so lovely!

    Bark at ya later!


  26. We agree with the majority: split it and each donate $25. Our favorites are Goose's reflection and Bert's muddy paw, too.

    Jed & Abby

  27. Zimmie just left Bert a comment saying there is no WAY we can choose, Goose!!! Your MOM and Vickie both take incredible pix! I love the ice chunks ... the hawk pix are powerful! ... your reflection in the water ... and all the gorgeous scenery (with SNOW!)!!!! It all just blows my mind! You both win - really! Or actually, we all do, because you guys and your moms are kind enough to share with us!!! Thanks, buddy!

  28. Both blogs have great photos!


  29. Those sure are some beautiful photos. :)
