Bert is Down

Hello Friends.

Yesterday I promised to let you know how Bert ended up like this:


He is down.  But how did he get this way?

Well after we finished helping the SAR dog we all were just walking a long and then Bert comes running at me saying, "Hey old dog Goose I'll race you up this hill and back down again."
OLD DOG!  Is he crazy or drunk?  He knows my mad running and climbing skills.  But never one to back down from a fun challenge, I accepted.

And the race was on.  As you can see from the above I am not even breaking a sweat.  Bert however seems to be struggling a bit.

I reached the top and was head back down before Bert even made it to the top.  In fact he seems to be going sideways.

Then it happened.  I am not sure why or how he ended up nose down on his face.  But there he was.

Judging by the look on his face I think he just might be drunk.  I'd feel sorry for him, but he didn't even offer me a sip.
Blessings,
Goose

  8. LOL Goose. We'd say our pal Bert just felt like rolling a bit in that nice grass. Sure looks like a great place to run and roll in the grass.

  13. Now GOOSE... you May be right about the cause... butt since you are such a SLEEK Furred guy.. and Bert is like Ernie and ME... covered with WIND RESISTING long Furs... maybe THAT is why he wore out so soon.

    PeeS... I was able to find Bert's Email from his recent post... I told him about the pawsibility of using Verizon for his ISProvider. It seems to be working GRRRREAT fur me... OTHER than the fact that I lost all of my Contact Emails in the pawcess. We MISS him soooo much.

  17. Goose, when you started this story, I thought it had a bad ending. But, it looks like Bert has been spending some time with Puddles in secret!! No sips for you? Bad Bert!

  26. I think Bert saw he wasn't gonna beat you up that hill and took his own detour...

    When I was a kid, my cousin was an AMAZING runner... I would challenge her to a race...just to see her run! LOL

  27. Is it really possible that Bert is drunk? Where is Puddles? I would think we would see beer bottles scattered about.

    I bet that Bert was just pulling your paw about racing up and down the hill. We think he got you good!
