PIP's World Bucket Tour

Hello Friends!

Well I am very excited to show you the latest leg of Pip's World Bucket Tour.  


Pip is not feeling so well and he is an older guy.  But rather that just sit around Pip, with his nurse Puddles is going on a word, blog tour. Places he has always wanted to see.  So today he has stopped by my neck of the woods and I could not be more honored.  You can click on the photos to make them bigger to really experience the tour in your face.



Pip arrived in Puddles fashion.  Even though I had MOM clear the drive way of the snow, Puddles managed to end up in a snow bank.


While Puddles and I dug the World Tour car out of the snow bank my MOM took Pip to the hospital to do rounds with my buddy Bert and his Vickie.  Pip brought much joy and comfort to many at the hospital, both patients and staff.  Everyone loved Mr. Pip.



Next stop, me and MOM's church.  I think Bert was a little embarrassed  that that Pip and Puddles would actually sit on the altar.  I said, "At least they are not swinging from the chandlers."  


I spoke to soon.  Bawhahhahaa

I know I could have taken Pip to see the capital and famous land marks here in Utah.  But to be honest I wanted to show Mr. Pip my world here.  And that really does not include capitals and the tabernacle choir, as great as they are.  So our next stops were places I love to go, the Fort and the Pond.

We hooked up with a few of my friends.  Puddles had a few to many "beverages" and just could not stay on the log.  She kept falling off.  But Pip was a pro and rode the log like a snowboard.

Bert gave Pip a ride he would never forget.  I think he might have a future in being a jockey.

Of course Puddles wanted to give it a try.  Bert said she was all mine. hehehhe

We stopped on the bride that crosses the river.  I was pointing out some ducks swimming when all of the sudden Pip took a header off the bridge!!!  My heart stopped.

But never fear, Bert of course was down below in the water and caught Pip.  

I thought I'd show Pip and Puddles how to catch fish.  Just so happens that Pip brought his fishing hat and who knew Puddles owned a fishing vest.

But then again Puddles fell down, AGAIN.  Good thing my buddy Bert taught me how to swim.  I jumped right in without a second thought.  I mean Pip cannot lose his nurse and driver.

By now we all were getting pretty hungry.  Good thing lunch was roaming around.  Puddles got to deaded herself a buffalo.  More on that later.

We tried once again to sit on a tree.  And friends miracles do happen.  Puddles actually stayed on the tree.   (We ran out of beer so she was sobering up).

We romped up and down snow covered hills.


While MOM was cooking up her world famous Buffalo Burgers from the deaded buffalo Puddles caught, we hung out in the back yard and had some beer and appetizers.  And you see that beer there chillin' in the snow?  My MOM has had that beer for over 20 years.  But because this was a very special occasion she let me break it out and share it with my friends.

This is my MOM's famous Buffalo Cheese burger.  We each had three.  Oh yum yum!

After dinner we had some bubble fun.  Pip was a pro.  He was flying through the air, chasing bubbles and laughing.  He has the best laugh.  

Then we settled in and played poker with some of my neighborhood friends all night long.  

Mr. Pip thank you for coming by my place on your tour.  I hope you had a good time and were able to cross a few things off your bucket list.  You make me see beautiful.  You make me laugh.  You can really hold your beer for a little guy.  You are simply are the best Mr. Pip.  And I am honored to be your friend.  

Blessings,
Goose

  8. Goose, I hardly know where to start this was such a wonderful day!!! First off, thank goodness you took Puddles (and me) to church despite the swinging from the chandlers, I think some of your mom's good words sunk in! Thank goodness!

    And thank you for taking me along to the hospital. My assistant always thought I would make a great therapy dog so that made her day to see me helping spread good cheer.

    Your pal, Pip

    This was such a wonderful day and I thank you so much for sharing your world with me!

  20. What an adventure! After seeing that car wreck, we thought for sure you were all gonna end up in the Hospital. But thank goodness it was for a different reason. I bet Pip had the best time visiting all the sick people there.

    You sure had a busy day with them Goose. It was very entertaining! We loved that in the end, a great day was had by one and all. You and your furends are all amazing and were very gracious hosts to Pip and Puddles.

    I think ending the night with a card game or two or three was the perfect thing. Butt, you didn't tell us who won??

    Thanks for all of your hard work at putting this together. You can take a nap now buddy.

    Hugs,
    Lily Belle & Muffin

    We can't wait to follow their next adventure.

    OMD you and Bert had to SAVE both of them from THEMSELVES so many times. WHEW... we would not want to think what it would have been like if you were not there to lend your paws.

    Holy Gwalk A Moley... you both let them RIDE on Your BACKS... Like a Jockey??? THAT was THRILLING.

  29. Goose Buddy, that was the perfect day, I am so glad you let me come along. Hey buddy, look outside now, it is snowing. Good thing Pip and Puddles were on their way before it hit.

    Thanks again, I loved the burgers and what a crack up watching PUddles take down that buffalo. That is one very impressive nurse Pip has.

    And Pipers, if you read this.... (Since My Vickie hasn't let me post for a week now) I love ya. You are my idle.
