Spring is HERE

Hello Friends.

Spring is here.  Want to know how I know?  Well there are a couple of signs, things that happen every year to let me know that Spring has come.  First thing is that MOM does not park the Blazer in the garage.  Yep, no more scraping ice off the windshield.   Then there is the first mowing of the lawn.  If you have read my blog for a little while you know that it takes MOM about 2 1/2 hours to mow my lawn.  But that first cut of the year it takes about 4 to 4 1/2 hours.  Something about it being long and thick and still a little damp.  For me it's like a four hour walk cuz I walk right beside her every step of the way.  I have to make sure she does not run over any of my sticks or any of my lost balls and toys that got buried by the snow.  The other sure sign is this:


I develop a green back.

No mistaking it, Spring has sprung.

And when Spring is here this happens.

Oh Yea!  Rollin' in freshly cut grass, playing fetch and keep a way.  Why don't you all come on over to enjoy some beautiful Spring fun.  Every dog and kitties too, can come over, there is plenty of room and grass and sunshine for everyone!
Blessings,
Goose

  1. That was a great vidoe Goose. It did sound like your mom still has some of her left over cold to. I know you are taking good care of her.
    Happy Rolling

  4. You sure are having fun in the grass Goose. Our grass hasn't started growing much yet so no mowing here.

    Oh Goose it would be lovely to share that grass with you - Jade too loved to 'grass bath'... but I must say I'd be getting a ride-on mower if that paddock was mine!

    So glad you are finally getting some decent weather. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty

  7. Look at your garden, wow it is pawsome Goose. We have a garden the size of a postage stamp but luckily our park is at the top of our road. Loving your green back. Happy rolling pal and have a marvelous Monday.

  9. Mom had the mower out last week too but our lawn isn't as big as yours...she has a ride on mower though and it only takes her ten minutes to zoom around.

  15. Bravo to Mom for making such a pawsome film! That was wonderful. We loved you rolling in the grass and turning green. That's pretty funny Goose.

    Happy Spring!

  16. Spring is not here. We do not have green backs unless your green back counts as our spring too

  17. Great roaching there, Goose. We are still waiting for our mowers to come to do our first cutting. Mom used to do it until she started having all those bone breaking problems. We have had so many rainy days that the ground has been too wet for the mowers, but maybe this week. Please say hello to Bert and Vickie for us - we read their journal and enjoyed it very much.

  18. What a nice video, Goose. I'm waiting for the spring too, today we had something like a "Bonsai-Spring" and I think Mr. Spring will visit me soon. Green is absolutely your color, it looks great with your silver-misty-gray fur :o)

  19. Hee, hee! The credits made us giggle. Playing keep away is beautiful when it gives smiles all around. We're sitting here with our back door open, loving the spring sounds and smells. Lilly is sunbathing and it is most certainly a BEAUTFUL day!

  20. Hi Goose,

    I gotta say that is some huge yard you have, oh my it must be so fun to run around and do zoomies.

    We had a hail storm yesterday I don't think spring is ever going to show up in Seattle.

  21. Goose that is very good that you walk besides your mom, just in case there would be a snake in that grass....that is what my mom worries about the most when she starts cleaning up flower beds, etc...yep snakes. Has she ever in 15 years seen one at our house, well NO but that doesn't stop her from worrying about one. Does that tell you a little about her personality. Also it is trying to be spring here but today it is cold.

  24. Hah, rolling in the grass looks like so much fun!!!

  25. You look like you are enjoying the weather! I love the grass too, but I am afraid of bees so I only go out front for a short roll around (the bees don't know about the front yard...I don't care what mom says). Enjoy Spring and playing keep away.

  37. Hi Goose, I can't believe you don't have snow today-or maybe you do. WE sure do, so much of spring yuck on the roads. It has been snowing, quite a bit, all day and should continue through tomorrow. Our back lawn is so big it takes hubby almost 2 hrs. Your mom rocks!!!
    Happy Day to you.

  46. Are those dandelions I see? We don't even have those yet and definitely our grass is not long enough to mow. You are a lucky doggie Goose to have so much green!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Goosie, that looks SO very fun! I wonder how I'd look with a green back. My new collar has green in it, so I think it would look very color-coordinated. I'll have to ask my David. He knows a lot about color.
