Ducks, Geese, Goose and a Bert Too

Hello Friends.

Come a long with me on a little adventure.  But before we do that as promised yesterday until Bert can get his interwebs fixed here is a little Bert fix for ya all.

Tomorrow I will explain how Bert got into this position.

I know that some of you know by now that my MOM has been very sick.  Those medical types still don't know what the deal is but I think she is finally on the mend.  On Saturday she had promised to help out a Search and Rescue team.  What that means is that MOM and I get ourselves lost and the dog, Zoie, finds us.  We love doing this.  But as I said my MOM was real sick.  But off we went any way and we got lost and as my MOM was laying in the thick tall grass behind an old dead tree she was thinking to herself, "I think I might need rescuing for real.  I hope they bring a stretcher."  Zoie did a GREAT job and found my MOM right away.  MOM decided that since we were already out there she might as well let me have some romping fun before she had someone take her back to the hospital.  Yea my MOM has a crazy sense of humor like that.  Anyway....

As we were walking a long in an open area I thought I smelled something.  And my ZIM training took over.

Hahhahaha oh yea I knew it.  Take a look out ahead of me.  Do you see them?  Lets move a bit closer.

It was a small herd (I think that is the scientific term) of gooses.  

I took a few steps closer and tried my very best ZIM communicating skills on those gooses.  And guess what?  They started to walk right towards me!!  They just kept coming and coming.  That Zim is one masterful teacher.  "Hey my Northern goose friends.  My name is Goose and it is real nice to meet you.  Before I leave do you think you could do a fly by so my MOM can get a picture of ya all in flight?"

"No problem brother Goose.  Hows this with the mountains in the background?"
"Oh that is beautiful.  Thank you!"  Do ya all see them to the right in the photo just above the grass?

Then they circled and tipped their wings to me.  
 What a nice herd of gooses.

As we headed back to the Blazer I stopped all of the sudden and stared at this tree.  MOM thought is looked beautiful so she took a picture.  Then she realized the tree was moving.  She was right.  Do you see why?   No?  Here let me take you in a little closer.  Be prepared for beautiful overload.

Do you see those wonderful Wood Ducks flying across the tree?  There are two males and one female.  WOW!  MOM said it was breath taking.
What a wonderful day.  We got to help out Zoie the Search and Rescue dog, MOM got to lay down for a while, I met some new feathered friends and we got to see a whole lot of beautiful everywhere we turned.

And just in case you need a little more Bert in your life here he is.

  1. Goose brother, My Vickie says you and your mom are the best victims ever. She always knows you will help us out as we train the SAR dogs. We sure are hoping your mom feels better. See ya tomorrow

  2. We hope your Mom is feeling better now. The geese pics were great and you did an excellent job of not chasing them. Hope you have a wonderful Monday. XXOO

  3. Thank goodness for the Bert fix. I needed it.

    You made me worried about your mom. I'll be thinking of her, hoping that she feels better really soon.

    The wood ducks are amazing. Breath-taking. You had a great day. Now, Nurse Goose, please help your mom get better. We love you both.

  4. Goose-
    Sending love and get well wishes to your mom. We know you will give her the love and nursing she needs.

    Wyatt and Stanzie

    We look forward to reading about you tomorrow over at Mayor Madi's Blog!

  5. Goose, glad your mom is finally starting to feel better. Looks like you're having a blast with Bert.

    I think you got yourself a "gaggle of geese" :P

    Glad to see Canadians aren't the only ones bombarded with these creatures.

  6. Thanks for the Bert and of course the Goose fixes. I sure hope your mom feels better soon.


  7. Goose, Geese, Ducks and a Bert. Looks like a success to me! :)

  8. Wow we agree all those geese and ducks what a great chance to play chase. Goose your bird whispering is pawsome. I'd be too busy chasing to talk. Have a marvelous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  9. What fun, Hope Mommy feels better soon Goose xx00xx

    Mollie and Alfie

  10. Morning Handsome G&B!! Great to see to good buddies on the same page.
    Goose please make sure your Mom is resting...if you have to SIT ON HER!!

    Search and Rescue game is kind of like hide and seek.

    We have a herd (scientific term cracked us up) of Canada Geese here fact we call them North Carolina Geese. Years ago before GPSs they came for the winter and never left.

    The pictures of the ducks are spot on!!

    Hugs Madi your BFFF

  11. Despite not feeling well, your mom sure got some beautiful pictures. Those Geese sure look friendly. Hope you Mom is feeling better today.

  12. Goose we are sorry your mom is sick. We hope she is better soon. Our Lady would do the same thing, finish a walk before going to the hospital. Looks like a good walk. We are laughing cause we live in Canada and we don't have geese around our house right now. Turkeys yes, but no geese!

    Have a great day. Lee and Phod

  13. I loved your interview on Madi's blog today. great job. and what a great day you had.. i would love to do what you did, be a part of practice for search and rescue plus see all those winged beauties.

  14. You and your mom are such day brighteners even when she doesn't feel well ... you must be taking good care of her :)?

  15. Great shots. Glad to here Mom is feeling better.

  16. Sir King Goose III, we just LOVE your name! We never knew you were Royalty, but we probably should have. We just read your interview and loved it! You, your Mom an Madi did a great job putting it together.

    First we want to say hi to Bert! We know he is having such horrible internet problems so wanted to give him a quick shout-out.

    We hope that your Mom feels better real soon Goose. We will be keeping her in our daily thoughts and prayers.

    We're glad that Mom was able to help be a victim for the SAR training. (tee~hee~hee loved the little nap part.) Happy to read that she didn't need that stretcher after all.

    Your pictures are so beautiful. We love how your new friends the geese put on a show for you. With a name like Goose, you all need to stick together!

    Great post my friend. Hope you all have a beautiful kind of day.

    Lily Belle & Muffin

  17. OMD Goose you got to commune with the OTHER GOOSEes. THAT is so cool drool. We love the pic of the ducks flying by the tree too.

    WE have already seen your interview with Mayoress Madi. You did a superb job with it buddy. WOW.. I don't think you have ever told us exactly how you came to live with your mom before. THAT is a gorgeous story!!

    PeeS... I was trying to send BERT an email last night, about how WE can figure thingys out, and suddenly POOF... my Email thingy got DEADED. I wanted to tell him about how he found your mom's medical device that had gotten lost!!! THAT was amazing.
    So NOW I have NO EMAIL... WildBlue says that it could take up to 72 hours to get it fixed. {{SIGH}} Bert and I seem to be in the SAME SINKING ISP BOAT!! I am going today to see if I can get VERIZON.

  18. Yikes, did you say your Mom had to go to the hospital? We sure hope she is OK!!!

    Great fun you had out there with those geese. Mom says that a group of geese is called a gaggle when they are not in flight and a skein when in flight. We actually prefer the term pack:)

    Thanks for the shot of Bert and when you see him, please tell him that we love him and so enjoyed his last post.

  21. So nice to see Bert again. And so nice to see you again too. Are those GOOSES {hehe} relatives of yours? Do you have hidden feathers?

    Sending warm wishes and prayers to Mom. Hopes ya feel better really quick!


  22. Well Goose, I hope your Momma is feeling better and thank you for our Bert fix. I wonder why he is in that position and we can't wait to hear about it tomorrow. I really liked your interview at Madi's, especially the part about believing in yourself!

  23. I hope your momma is feeling better. It's never good when our humans are sick. If she looks really pathetically sick, I MIGHT even forgive you for calling me a GIRL today.

    ...Maybe. Grr.

    I BOL at Bert and wondering 'bout he got upside down. Now, I hope you will not be offended Prof Goose if I tell you the official term is "gaggle" of geese... and what great day indeed. This is the sort of day that aids healing, regardless of the ailment, so I hope Mom is truly on the mend. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty

  30. Goose meets geese...that has a nice ring to it. Glad you had such a nice time out there, but really, really sorry Mom is still not feeling well. I sure hope they get it all figured out.

    Loved the pictures of Bert...we were missing him.

  31. We finally made it over here! Mom is getting us all caught up. We hope your mom is better cuz she sounded terrible yesterday!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  32. Good morning, Goose...thanks for including Bert in your posts; we would really miss not seeing him. We have our paws together and saying little prayers that your Mom will soon be good as new. She has the best nurse in you. Cool photos of your feathered brothers. Lady Caroline

  33. Really Gooses Mom????? You are your own worst enemy - you are supposed to give yourself TIME to feel better. It is nice to get out and enjoy the fresh air though :)

  34. Thanks for the Bert Fix, I was starting to shake. WOW, we like just looking at the mountains! You get MOM to hospital now and get her well Goose!!!

    The Mad Scots

  35. Hey Goose!
    Wow, i sure hope your Mom is feeling better now! Lots of healing vibes headed to her just in case she needs them. I bet napping in the tall grass was really relaxing. BOL Gosh, with that flock, it was a double-dose of Goose! Actually, I just read your Madi Cabinet post, so it's a triple-dose of Goose! Woohoooo Loved your article and thanks for the Bert fix. I hope he gets the technopeeps to fix his interwebs soon.
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, Furiend

  36. Oh shoot Goose (BOL!!! Oh, I didn't even realized I said that! 'shoot' and 'goose'....), I hopes your Moms is finally on the mends! I'll be sendin' her some healin' vibes and some AireZens!
    Those are some cool birds Goose, I thinks I would have chased em' thou...your a much sweeter pups than I!! hehehe

  37. Hey Goose, good to see you and Bert too. Tell Bert Hi from me and thank you both for visiting me on my Birthday! What a beatiful walk you had, lots of beautiful things for your mama to focus on while she recovers. Sure hope she feels better soon. She is in our prayers.

  38. It's so obvious you speak Goose. I mean, they probably loved seeing a furry family member with four legs who could charm them. I'm sure they flew off to tell the rest of their clan. It was also special to see Lilly and Buddy mentioned at Madi's blog. I think they dream about you Goose. :)

  39. Goose & the Geese...sounds like the name of a new band...with you singing lead of course...Loved your interview with Mayor Madi!

  40. Goose, my sweet pal, first I hope your Mommy is ok and getting better. Nothing is worse than having a sick Mommy. I will cross paws for her. I love your goose talking skills, Zim is a really good teacher and you are a good student. I read your story by Madi and love how you and your Mom met. Sometimes things are just meant to be and you two were meant for each other.

    Loveys Sasha

  41. BOL..Duck, Duck, Goose ......geese and Bert too...

    I hope your Mom starts feeling better..let me nose cuz I can send MY mom to take care of her if needed!! She's a nurse and I will share her wiff you!

    Your furiend,

  42. Wow Goose I was gettin hungry lookin' at your post today!! Geese, Ducks...... mum could confit them really good. That Easter duck is still giving me great memories.

    Mum and I hope your MOM feels better soon. We are happy she was found in that Search and Rescue!!

    Tail Wuggles, Rubie xxx

    Hawk aka BrownDog

  46. I hope your mom is feeling much better soon! That sounds miserable. I'm glad Zoie found her quickly. I don't go out and get lost with Mom for SAR, because who knows how long it could take them to find us!


    P.S. There are tons of beautiful images in your blog today! It's one of our favorite parts of visiting you!

  47. WOWZERS!!! Goose, I am SO proud of you! Aren't gooses cool?!? Not as cool as Goose yourself, but really! I'm so glad you made friends with them. I just love the flyover they did for you. And wood ducks!?!? That is TOTALLY BEAUTIFUL! I've never seen any of those in real life. Maybe one day.
    Way to go with the Search and Rescue stuff. And mostly, way to help your MOM start feeling better! Give her a hug from Dave and just one lick on the nose for me, OK? Oh. And then slather her with kisses for Camo. Sigh. Girls!
    Play bows,
