Tasty Balance

Hello Friends.

Oh the fun never ends at my house.  As I am sure you know it is Girl Scout Cookie time.  Several of my MOM's kids at church are Girl Scouts.  I was puzzled when MOM came home with several boxes cuz she really should not eat the yummy goodness of cookies.  Although this time of year she talks about how much she really like the Do-Si-Dos and remembers how yummy they are, then sighs.  So again I was surprised why she had a few boxes.  But MOM assured me that she was going to take them to St. Anne's Homeless Shelter for the children there.  But first...

She thought she would balance one on my nose.  (Please excuse the weird lighting she forgot to turn on the flash).  I have balanced things on my nose and head for a long time.  But never a Girl Scout cookie.  Then she remembered how cool Miss Sugar is when she balances all kinds of yumminess on her nose and head.  So she wanted to see what I could do.

THREE, that's right 3 yummy cookies balancing.  But wait... there is more.

That's right pups and kitties FOUR Do-Si-Dos balancing.

Check this out.  I can even balance them while they are leaning.  The leaning tower of Do-Si-Dos.  

I find the key to success is to hold your tongue just right.
Nothing like a balanced diet.  
"OK, enough MOM can I have one now?"

MOM did let me have not one BUTT two cookies.  It was sort of a role reversal for us.  While I ate my two cookies MOM drooled.  Bawhahhaha


  1. Oh my goodness, Goose! Just like Sugar!

  2. Way to go Goose!!! You have so many talents, yesterday sticks and water and today it's Girl Scout Cookies.

  3. You are awesome at that Goose!! You should have kept going...maybe you could have put the whole BOX on there...BOL!!!! Great Job! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

  4. Nice Job Goose, Goose. WE get our cookies tomorrow. This is a great time of year. New snow almost every day and Girl Scout Cookies.

    Could life get any better.......?

  5. Oh my goodness Goose! Absolutely incredible balancing and self control my friend...I would have (cough) "dropped" the first (then landed it in mois mouth)! Hehe! I suggest checking out my friend Gator the Deaf Circus Potties on Facebook, he's got skills!!!

  6. Woof! Woof! More Woofs and Golden CLAPS for you Goose. LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Just remember those cookies got lots of SUGAR. Oh It's TASTY Tuesday on my blog today so make sure to add this post on the hop. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  7. All that talent and good looks too! You are so lucky, Goose. Those cookies are the best. Happy Tuesday. xoxoxo

  8. Goose you are very clever and patient to balance all those cookies on your nose and head. I'm glad to see you got to finally eat some too.


  9. WOW!! Thats most impressive Goose. I dont know that me nor Addi would have that kind of will power!!

    Jazzi and Addi

  10. We are so impressed Goose. We could not do that although we'd like to try. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  11. That's fantastic Goose, I could never do that.. You are so funny.Bawwhhaaaa xx00xx

    Mollie and Alfie

  12. O...M...D Goose!!! You are SO talented and such self-restraint!! We are barking out butts off in pure appreciation of your skill!!

    Wally & Sammy

    1. The real trick is to throw your head back so the cookies fly up in the air and then you catch them and chomp chomp

  13. Do-si-Dos...and handsome Goose all in one picture we are drooling too.
    OMDs Goose I had no clue you had such excellence balance!!!
    Here we go do-si-do...swing your partner to and fro.
    Hugs Madi your BFFF

  14. We don't have any girlscouts in our community in Florida. I don't think 90 year olds can be in the organization. Mommy really misses the Thin Mints.

    You did pawsome Goose. We are truly impressed with your cookie balancing skills. That last picture is priceless!

    Lily Belle & Muffin

  15. Goose, you are such a talented boy! Were the cookies good?

  16. WOW Goose, you are lucky dog!! Sometimes I get a nibble of donut but NEVER TWO COOKIES!! YUM.

  17. Oh, Girl Scout cookies are a sore subject at our house right now. Dad came home with two boxes of Thin Mints, one box of Lemonades and one box of Peanut Butter Sandwich cookies. Mom got four Lemonades and that's it. The Peanut Butter ones are her favorite and she didn't get one single bite. Maybe we should offer to guard them for her next time!

    We adore that last picture of you!


  18. You've got some great balance! Zeus does 1, but we've never tried multiple cookies... hmmmm......

  19. I can't believe it... you have FOUR cookies on your head and your nose and you haven't eaten it? WOW! Sadly here the girls only sell brioches to the people - I don't like it ;o)

  20. OK... Got it... the KEY is in the Tongue!! We are gonna have to give this a try.

  21. i am impressed, i can't get either one of my canine friends to balance anything, they shake their heads and off it flies...

  22. Goose this looks like nothing but torture!! We are calling the authorities, BOL
    Benny & Lily

  23. Very impressive Goose!

    the brown dawgs

  24. Good job Goose! Maybe one day we can do that too!

    Your Pals,

  25. The "Leaning Tower of Do-Si-Dos". Ha roo roo roo! Oh, that's a good one!
    There's no way I could do that, Goose - my hat is off to you! Of course, I'm not allowed to have Do-Si-Dos, but I don't think I could swing a stack-o-Stinky Goodness Treats, either!
    You're the PUP! Seriously.
    Play bows,

  26. Goose, you are one patient pup! Mabel snags the cookie before I can get near her head!

  27. Hey Goose, Wow what a trick-wish Hunter could do that! I'm sorry your mom can't have the cookies-I can't either because of gluten. It is better for her health though to avoid them(at least it helps keep me eating healthier). I wanted to tell you that when we went snow shoeing, we just rented the equipment for a day-it was just $5. per person-so I'd tell your mom that is what she should do to see if she likes it. You are both so oriented to hiking and camping, I bet she'd love it.
    Have a great day!!!!
    Wags and nose poke from Hunter to you.

  28. WE are very impressed Goose. I don't know if any one of us could do that. WE have no nose to balance on HA AH HA HA!!!
    Bailey, Hazel & Greta

  29. Wow Goose, that was awesome. I don't think I could do that!

  30. Wow!!! Wow!!!! 4# Wow!!! Fantastic !!!!!!!!
    You are so special!!!!

  31. Wow, you're very talented at balancing cookies on your noggin :)

  32. OMPUG there is no way at all that we could do that!!!
    stella rose

  33. That's one trick I just can't master!

  34. O.K. now my question is what did Mom do with the other two cookies you balanced on your nose and played with.
    Thanks for being a friend
    Sweet William The Scot

  35. I am very impressed by your pawesome patience to balance those cookies without gobbling them up!! My mouth is watering just looking at these pictures! YUM!


  36. Oh My Dog Goose, how did you do that.......... we are so impressed with you, and we are so happy you got 2 of them.

    The silvers and more

  37. I'd balance 100 frozen thin mints on my head if it meant I got to eat them all. What's important to note: I shouldn't eat them all. It's a good thing I can't eat 100. I would. In one sitting. Yummy!!!!

    Goose, btw, you're such a talent. Your talents just never end and that's so cool!

  38. That is impressive. We won't let our Lady balance anything on us. Lee and Phod

  39. Wow, What a feat! 4 cookies...we just get to look at the boxes and watch my mom eat them all. She can down a box of thin mints in record time...BOL!

    Wyatt and Stanzie

  40. Goose that was amazing. Next time can you find a way to just flip them all in your mouth?? That would be really cool.

    Loveys Sasha

  41. What a great job you did and what a great dog you are

  42. Appaws Appaws Goose...That's some mighty fine balancing going on's OK to work as long as there's treats involved...

  43. That's awesome Goose! You are a champion balancer of Girl Scout Cookies! I wonder what the world record is. Four looks like a lot!

    I read your older posts (sorry for my lack of comments but my hands don't work right)... and I've been getting a lot (I mean about 20 per day) of weird anonymous comments, and they're driving me batty! I would turn them off but I worry about cutting off someone legit...

    Keep Smiling Mr. Goose. It's great being you, isn't it (rather than trying to be Bert)?

  44. Oh my goodness! If the cookies came anywhere neat either of my Hairy Slobbery sisters there would be much snapping and gnashing of teeth!

  45. Wow, Goose! You have some serious balancing skills! Not to mention that impulse control business my mom is always going on about. I am glad you got to eat some of those tasty girl scout cookies!!

  46. OK. I'm now impressed, Goose. 'Cept now Mom is going to try it.....

  47. My pups are not at all good with balancing stuff!
