Operation Rescue

Hello Friends.

It was an epic day of rescue here in my neck of the woods.  I enlisted the help of my buddy Bert because the task was so huge.


While I drag a stick from the water to the bank Bert swims them in from the middle of the river.

This guy watched us work.

























He was soon joined by his girl.  But there was no time to admire them any longer.  There were sticks that were in need of rescue.

This big boy was heavy, but worth the effort.

When rescuing sticks you must pause to asses the situation for optimal success.  

And there are times when one must give mouth to stick resuscitation.  This one made it.

And it helps to have a partner in rescue operation.
"Hey Goose we have a situation over here."

"I'm on it Bert."

Woo, got it.

The rescuing was never ending.  This stick not only was drowning but it was stuck deep in the mud.

When a sticks life is on the line the adrenaline kicks in and I get super Goose strength.  Which enabled me to pull it from it's muddy, watery death.

But it was not over yet.  It need some critical attention.  

Another successful rescue operation.  I could not have done it without my buddy Bert.  Stick rescue was not all we did.  Tune in again to see what else happened.
Blessings,
Goose
Special note:  MOM and I have a lot of stuffs to get to and to be done.  While I might post each day I might not be able to leave comments on each of your blogs.  But I am pretty sure I will be able to read them all.

  21. Hi Goose, I so understand about being busy. Will pray for extra energy for you and Mom. I knew there were sticks calling your name; glad you had some time with Bert. The last picture of you together is priceless-think it should be hanging in a museum or someplace important-maybe the White House.

  24. You and Bert sure do make a pawesome rescue team!!! If we could just find a nice big stick like those, we would be able to practice mouth to stick resuscitation too. It sure looks like a fun and rewarding experience.

    Oh Goose (and Bert!) - I hate to think what would have become of those sticks had you not been right there on the scene. Planning out a rescue op like that requires skilful loggy-stix... &>

  39. Goose, do you think you and Bert could come out to NC and help us clear the creek? Our dogs won't pick any of them out of the water. And it's hard work.
