Bobbing for Apples

Hello Friends

Come along with me and I will show you how I "bob for apples."  As some of you know MOM and I water our yard by flood irrigation.  It's way cool.  It's like my own private pond.  My pond even has an apple tree.  And when you combine water and apples you get tons of fun fun fun.

"OK MOM I'm ready.  Let the fun begin.

Gotta stay focused on the apple or you might be wearing apple sauce on your face.

Of course having water jets on your paws help you leap in the air to grab a tasty apple.

Oh yum yum.  Lip smacking good.

Apple down!  No worries I'm on it.

I may be over 13 years old, but I still got the moves.

This is my chipmunk impersonation.  How many apples can you stuff in your cheeks?

Come to Goosie delicious apple.  

Hope ya all enjoyed our time together bobbing for apples.  I'm headed to the patio for some dinner.

"Come on MOM lets throw some fish on the grill."  Not much better than fish stuffed with fresh from the tree apples.  I'll save a seat for all of you.
Blessings,
Goose

  21. Is it apple time already?!? I'll have to go out and check my apple tree. How do you know when they're ripe? I think maybe playing fetch with a Jones hoof would work, too.

  34. Goosie, you sure DO have the moves! I would love to come bobbing for apples with you! I don't catch, though. It's against the Code Of Siberians. I'm all about splashing around, though, and run, run, running! That looks totally fun.
    Grilled fish? I'm so there. Maybe I can get Zimmie to drive me.

  42. Hi Goose!
    That looks like some crazy apple bobbing fun! Those are some amazing photos! I love that you can leap so high in the air to catch the apples and I was laughing that if you missed an apple you would end up wearing apple sauce on your face!
    It looks like a nice way to cool off, apples to eat, water to splash in, apples to play with, water to roll in - the fun just keeps on coming!
    Have a great time!! love, licks and Hugs from your furiend Frank xxxxxxxx
