Belle and Other Wild Things

I am so excited.  My gal pal Belle is staying with me and MOM until June 2nd.  Belle has been my friend for years.  We have had some might fine and beautiful adventures together.  Whenever her family has to go out of town and she can't go she gets to come and stay with me.  I like her a lot!  How much?  Well...

I like her so much I let her lay on the couch in my spot next to my MOM.  I have only let her do that.  It's a special treat for her because she is not allowed on the couch at her house (Don't worry her mom says it's OK she does it at our house).  
We had such a fun first day together.  I took her to Bert's place and she got to meet so many of my friends.  Everyone liked her.  I don't have pictures of that because my MOM and Miss Vickie took their cameras to Bert's special mountain place to look for moose.  Here is what they found.

Some cute deer

More cute deer

MOM found another fishing pond

And they found FIVE moose.

This guy is HUGE.  I think MOM got to close.

I hope my MOM used her Moose Manners

How cool is this spider house?  I hope those caterpillars will become butterflies and not lunch.

This is where MOM and Miss Vickie were, "Bert's Special Mountain Place"

MOM said we will get to go next time.  I know Belle will love it there.  She is a very experienced mountain and hiking dog.  And she told me she knows all about moose manners.  So we will go there next week.   I'm OK with MOM going without us.  We had so much fun at Bert's Place.  And when we got home we were, as they say, dog tired.

"MOM you can have the couch.  Please turn out the light on your way out.  Goodnight"


  1. I havae toa be fast Goose Buddy cause I am in a bit of trouble. I kinda ate a whole cheeseball this morning. Whew was she upset. She said something about it giving me gas right before I go visit the patients at the hospital with your mom and My Vickie.

    Anyway, what I was gonna say is.....glad you came over and spent the day with me. I sure do like Belle and she can come any time cuase she is beautiful.

    Wish me and my tooter luck at the hospital. (So what is the problem with these humans anyway. Gas is a way of saying "MMMMM Good"


  2. Awww, Belle is so sweet that we can totally see why you enjoy having her come to visit so much. Glad you straightened us out on the moose hunt, just phototaking, not hunting:)

    Hope Mom got a good night's sleep.

  12. Brudder Goose, Belle is very purties, I hopes her is gonna likes me since her is gonna be stsin' withs you furs awhile and I do come sees you frequently. Does her likes beer and cheetos?
    I am very sures ya'll didn't mind da peeps goin off cuz you knows what they says...when da peeps go away, da dogs will party. Okay, so they don't say dat but it sounds genius to me.

    If you has more than one moose why not you calls them more than one goose is called geese?

    PS: I hope Bert don't goes and farts all in da hospital..hehehehe!

  13. I wonder if your Mom enjoyed snoozing on the couch? What beautiful photos they took.

  14. Hi Gooseberry, You and Belle sure look like you enjoy each others company. Do you know Big Honey Dog from Australia? She did a post and near the end she has an encounter with the HUGEST stick I have ever seen a dog play with and it made me think of you. She even has a video of her playing with the stick. You should check it out: . That Honey is your kind of gal. No offence to the beautiful Belle of course.


  15. Woof to you Goose!!!! After Belle shares her secrets with you, you'll have to give us all a primer on proper moose manners. Much love - XXOO - Mazzie

  16. Hi Goose, What a wonderful time you had with Belle; she looks like the purfect house guest. I love Moose; we've only seen them in one area about three hours from us but they are just so cute.
    Have a great time with Belle.
    Lots of love, Noreen & Hunter

  17. Belle is beautiful, you are sweet to let her lay right next to mom.Bert's special mountain place really looks like a special place, how exciting you both get to go there.

    The silvers and more

  18. Your friend sure sounds like fun - and she is mighty cute!
    I like those mooses. And the deers. The cutest pic, though, is you and Belle kicking back together after a mighty full day!

  19. Being CLOSE with a gooooooood furend is grrrrreat isn't it Gooseberry.

  20. It's always so much fun to have company isn't it? What a great host you are Goose!!

    Your pictures remind me so much of Alaska with the moose!! What a fun way to spend a day!

    (By the way, those are 'tent caterpillars' that will turn into moths around July. We have them here and while they're great food for birds, they can really do a lot of damage to trees because they'll eat the leaves and the nests suffocate the trees, so we always get rid of them...)

  21. aahhh Belle isso that Bullwinkle?

  22. Dear Goose,
    Me is a tiny bit jealous, but me knows yous is a dog and me is a cat and Bellie is beautiful! And she lives there and me lives here--sigh--And the scenery! Wow! My Mommy would LOVES to goes hiking up there!

  23. OK, so I am hoping your mom was using a zoom lens with those moose! Aren't they kind of mean sometimes?
