A Life Saved

Hello Friends.

Before I get to the saving a life the other day let me tell you about the big Valentines Ball that our friends Ranger and Mollie & Alfie are hosting.  To see all the fun just click on their name.

My escort/companion/date/ brother Easy came over 4500 miles just to pick me up.  But there was a little problem after he got to my place.

But soon enough I found the problem (a squirrel in the intake valve) and we were on our way to the big shindig.  Like I always say, "If ya have a screwdriver,  a beer and duct tape you can fix anything."  

We arrived on the red carpet ready to party.

Lock up your hearts ladies or risk losing them forever.  We are having the time of our lives.  Anyone care to dance just meet us at the water bowl.

Before Easy picked me up for the Ball I was busy saving a life.

This poor helpless STICK was buried in an avalanche.

Hold on helpless stick I am here to save you.

Yes I think it is still alive, I think I can hear it breathing.

It seems the stick was loosing some of it's bark in the trauma of the snow and cold.

Don't worry friends I gave it mouth to stick resuscitation.  I am happy to say it was a success.  I then pulled it to safety.   

I asked Nurse Bert to continue the medical attention.
(Hey if Mr. PIP can have a Nurse PUDDLES, I can have a Nurse Bert.  Besides he has hospital experience).

"How is our patient Nurse Bert?
"Coming along Nicely Dr. Goose.  I think you got to him just in the nick of time."
"It was a close call Bert.  You keep taking care of this stick I am off to see if there are others."


  1. Well - don't you two look simply dashing !!! Tango down the red carpet - stick savoir extraordinaire - is there anything you can't do goose?

  2. Girls Girls, best watch out for those two handsome bachelors. And remember Valentines Day is Goos'es 13th birthday. I think that makes him a double whammy catch.....right.

    Well, I must be off to check on my patient Mr. Stick and mya I point out that I am not just a regular Nurse, I am a surgical nurse, which works out well as Dr. Goose has often had to take the skin off the sticks to perform his medical wonders.

    Have fun at the dance boys


  3. Goose, you are SO right, duct tape fixes EVERYTHING! (at least that's what my Ma is always sayin'!!)
    Oh, you two are DASHING!! OMD, you are gonna have all the ladies swoonin'!! You better be carefuls or your gonna break a few hearts there boys! *wink, wink*

  4. Oh My Goose, you and Easy are the cats meow!! hahaha
    Bailey, Hazel & Greta

  5. Oh Goose! You are such a brave first responder!

    Bart, Ruby and Otto

  6. We saw you unearth that stick and were quite impressed. But we never could figure out why Bert ended up with it. Must be cuz you were so nice to share with him. If he is Nurse Bert you must be Dr. Stick!

  8. Woof! Woof! LOVE your outfits to the ball. WOW that's a long stick. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  9. Mouth to stick resuscitation. OMD ... my mom is laughing so hard !!!! We too, feel that duct tape can solves most of the world's problems. Can't wait to hear more about the ball tomorrow!

  10. Goose you are a true-to-life hero!!!
    Wally & Sammy

  11. Bawaahhaaawwaaa..Mouth to stick resuscitation...Oh you are so funny Goose, tears rolling at all the photo's xx00xx

    Mollie and Alfie

  12. Don't you worry your self, I will meet you at da water bowl. A tually, makes it da punch bowl cuz I added a little sumptin' to it...fur medicinal purposes.

    Sees, I always knowned you should has been a search and rescue dog. But I guess bein' a Dr. works too. It's a good thing Nurse Bert was theres to help watch your patient while you went off to help some udders. Good team work theres buddy.


  13. Pawsome emergency rescue. We were on the edge of our seats. Would you pull Mr.Stick to safety? Would the resus work? On my better than any hospital drama. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  14. You two look marvellous tangoeing down that red carpet!
    Oh boy, I'm so glad you saved that sticks life. Avalanches can be deadly!!! If you hadn't got to the tick on time, he could have been no more than a frozen twig in a few days!

  15. That stick was lucky you came along! See you at the dance.

    Goose where to begin!! Oh dear me such fun. Well let me just say I needed reviving after seeing your and Easy in those form fitting pants!! Sighing in NC

    Stick was lucky to be stuck in a place where he was likely to be sticking out so that you didn't have to stick your handsome nose too otherwise it would have been a sticky situation.
    Hugs your BFFF Madi

  17. Oh Goose that is sooooo funny, you can sure find a stick in the deep snow! Good job! I love all the photos you and Bert look like you had an amazing time playing in the snow with your stick! BOL!
    Beautiful photos again Goose!
    I love the "mouth to stick " photo! You look wonderful!
    Love, Licks and Hugs from your furiend Frnak xxxxxxx

  18. You are the bestest stick rescuer Goose. It sure is a big stick too!

  19. I am thinking Bert might make a better nurse than Puddles. She keeps telling me to take my medicine and giving me Cheetos!

    Your pal, Pip

  20. Wow Goose, that was better than a season of "Scrubs" or "Emergency Room". I hope the stick is well or do you think Mr. Stick would need a REHAB?

  21. Oh Goose, good job saving that stick. Well done. Hope you two have such a good time at the dance. Take care.

  22. Thank goodness you were there, Goose! Have fun at the Valentine's Ball.

  23. so glad you saved your stick since it is one of the two things you would keep that is your entertainment.

  24. That stick was SO LUCKY to have you around! I'm sure its stick-momma and stick-daddy are so relieved you saved it.

  25. First off Goose we watched you on the Westminister Dog Show last night and thought you should have won! Second, please save me and maggie a dance, watch you don't step on her tho, maybe you should just put her in your pocket and do the tango with her! You and Easy look so handsome!
