Fun at the Fort

Hello Friends.

Saturday was a very good day.  I took my gal pal Belle to the Fort to romp with my friends.  I'll just let the pictures do most of the talking.  WARNING:  There are quiet a few photos so grab a snack.  MOM had even more, but I cut them back so you could get on with your day.

There were like 87 dogs there.  MOM says it was more like 20 something, but I am pretty sure my number is closer.

All my old friends were there, like Stanley and Murphy.

Belle and Jessie getting to know one another.

Of course my very good friends Logan and Baci got to know Belle.

Me and Belle

Me and Belle, Annie, Baci and Logan broke off from the pack and took a different path.  Bert took the rest of the group a different way.

It was a beautiful day.  

I'm calling out to the gang to hurry and catch up.

One of the things I love about Belle is she loves to go off the beaten path, just like me.

It is so good to have Annie back with us.  She was very sick for a long while, it had to do with Heart-worm.  But she is back and loving life and we are so happy.

The stream is a little low, but still a lot of fun.

I found this great stick in the stream.  

We stop for a moment cuz my buddy Logan got a few burs in his paw furs.

Check out this stick!  My beaver brothers sure know how to take down a stick.

Just strolling with Belle in the river.  Right after this shot was taken Belle saw a duck on the river and chased it for like 50 yards.  That old girl is fast in the water.  MOM was so surprised she didn't even take a picture.

Can ya tell how happy I am?  See my smile.

Can you find me?

MOM just loves to watch Logan bounce around.  He's like a bunny.

I love it when Belle chases me.  

Logan, Annie and Belle love swimming.  

Isn't Belle just beautiful?  

We all watch as Belle swims out to get a stick for me.  She's sweet like that.

When we got home we took a nice long nap and dreamed of what tomorrow will bring.  


  1. Wow what a large outing of friends!

    Stop on by for a visit

  2. Looks like you had a great day, Goose. Nothing like spending the day with good furriends, out-of-doors! Happy Sunday. XOXO

  3. I wish we had some friends like you have around here for Millie to play with. You guys always have so much fun.


  4. Now that looked like an absolutely wonderful day Goose!! Your 87 friends look super awesome to hang out with, especially Belle! How can you go wrong with sticks, beautiful scenery, and great friends?! Have a good rest so you can have a blast tomorrow!! :-D

  5. Belle is wonderful! Does she like cats?

  6. Hey Goose! You are like a party animal!!! What fun you must have had with all of your friends!! Hope your buddy's paw is better...those burrs can be bad! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

  7. Goose so nice to see you back to normal and romping around the Fort with your pals. Have a super Sunday and hope church goes well.
    Best wishes Molly

  8. What a beautiful day you and Belle had! We love that your Mom took a gazillion pictures for us to see. It makes us feel like we are right there with you enjoying the day. Which of course we wish we were! Tho I'd be a little worried that Muffin and I would get stepped on because we're so short.

    After all that running around, I bet there was a lot of loud snoring going on last night. I think I heard it all the way here in Florida!

  9. Now that is the way to spend a wonderful day with you gal pal.....but my dog ness those were some huge burrs that got stuck in the fur. So happy to see Annie back...we wondered what happened to her

  12. Goose I could feel the happiness in your smile aal the way in NC. OMDs you were correct I counted 87 beautiful dogs too. Mom has a silly question (well maybe not too silly). We noticed no one has a leash so we must believe you are all Very well behaved....but downy of you get so excited you get too far away?

  15. We loved your outing to the fort! It's pawsome that you have so many friends!

  16. You guys sure know how to live the good life!

  17. Goose, that was Soooooooooo much fun, and all the furiends, stick finding, and swimming has made us tired, off for a nappie poo ourselves!

    Your Furiends

  18. Yes it was a fun time and we are PAWSITIVE there were 87 dogs there! If only our pawrents would let us get in the river! We were so glad to see you looking so happy (and healthy) and thanks for singing to us! Seeing Annie run like her old self was fantastic! Belle is such a sweetie too. Too bad every day can't be like that!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  19. Whoa... look at all those doggies! Must have been tons of fun.

  20. What a perfect Saturday with furiends!! Thanks for sharingit with us, Goose!

    -Bart and Ruby

  21. O what a wonderful day - you are such a lucky guy ... and I had a nice idea as I saw the burs ;o)

  22. O what a wonderful day.. you are a lucky guy... and I had a nice idea as I saw the burs :o)

  23. My favorite pix - wait a minute! You've trained Belle to swim out and get sticks for you?!? How cool is that?!?! Wow. OK, anyway - what an awesome time you all must have had! My favorite pix are the one of you smiling and the one of Belle chasing you!
    I wonder if Beavers go to some kind of Trade School to learn those skills? We have a Vo-Tech school here that teaches Carpentry - I wonder if there are any Beavers in the program? I think it would be a good fit.
    Thanks for taking us to the Fort with you, Goose!
    Play bows,

  24. Amazing pix... I just love to see dogs playing in the water! I'm thinking Belle is gonna send her folks on vacay every month!

  25. Looks like you had an amazing time! Great photos :-)

  26. Oh my gosh. That is a lot of dogs. I've never seen so many dogs.
    Makes me a little nervous.

  27. Yups, I thinks you were right Goose, there were AT LEAST 87 doggies there! You sure have the bestest furends. What a great way to spend the day. Belle is such a sweetie!! LOVE her!


  28. Hi Goose, Wonderful photos of such a great time! Love seeing you and Belle with all your friends. The weather looked wonderful; so glad you were all out in nature-especially the peeps.
    Have a great evening.
    Wags, Noreen & Hunter

  29. Wow the fort looks really fun!! I'm glad you had such a great weekend!

  30. You all have so much fun together - such a great community of peeps and pups. We are happy to see Annie doing so well, and somehow we just knew you would find a stick:)

    Thanks for your good thoughts for Phantom, he has been having some sick days lately.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  31. That looks like one fantastic outing! I would have had so much fun, and Morgan and Kuster probably would have loved it even more!


  32. Hey Dude, I looked up andyou were gone. it is never as fun when we all go in different directions but still nice.
    then today, I looked up and you and Belle were gone. My Vickie didn't even see you come.
    Anyway, She said to tell you we have one client dropping off a dog at 6 but then we are going to run right over. I need all the churchin I can get.
    Later Buddy,
    and give Belle a hug for me will ya. I like that girl

  33. Wow Goose,
    It sure looks like you had a great day at the Fort.
    Your right Belle sure is a pretty gal.
    It's to cold here to go swimming now.


  34. Wow! You had a fun day with your friends!

  35. We LOVED the photos Goose, looks like everyone had a great day, we sure wish we lived closer so we could go on awesome walkies like that with you.


  36. looks like you had a fab adventures guys, wish we could of come :)

    Charlene and Stormy

  37. Sure looks like fun, but yikes on those burrs!

  38. Woo hooo! You guys had some fun times at the fort. Those burrs Logan got on his feet look like they'd really hurt. How nice of Belle to swim out and get a stick just for you. Good times!

  39. Sweet dreams, but it looks like that was a dream of a day - except for those rotten burrs! I can't let Lilly and Buddy see this post. They'd be upset with me that such excitement was taking place and all they got to do was romp around with me in a car and in the leaves and in the back yard. Oh, they'd have it in for me! :)

    Happy seeing beautful - as always!
