Last Day

The last day of me and MOM's stay at Bert's place finally came.  We made the most of it.  Let me show you.

When it got light outside MOM started to vacuum our play area.  I discovered something, all the other doggies don't like or are afraid of the vacuum.  I don't understand that.  Bert is torn, should he protect his ball or run.

The truth is my MOM has to push me with the vacuum to get me to move out of the way.  Sometimes even then I won't move and she just vacuums around me.

Now we are ready to play.  There were even two dogs there that was their first time at Canine Country Club.

Here is James Dean with one new guy Ryder.  Ryder is still a pup and this is also his first time being with other dogs (besides his litter mates).  It took a little while before he would play with us.

But then he realized this was going to be a great day with new friends.

We even taught him how to play with a ball.  Something else he has never done.

And this beautiful gal is Stella.  I am playing out that scene from that old Marlan Brando movie.  She now lives with James Dean.  She and I hit it off great.  Like me she has separation anxiety.  But she did great at daycare.

Bert was showing off how high he could get all four paws off the ground in one leap.  I tell ya the girls all fainted.  And Ryder was awe struck.

We played ball for hours!  Ryder learned a lot about ball from Bert the Master of the round orb.

Willa and Scrappy got tired just watching us.

Then me and MOM went to make sure the boarding guest had plenty of water in their pools.  This is Keni. 

And this is his brother Kodiak.  I know what you are thinking, "Sibes liking the water?"  Well you would be wrong they LOVE the water.

Raj and Mystery taken it easy in the shade.  They are waiting for their pool to finish filling up.

I stopped by the small dog area to see my friend Buddy.  He always has a joke to tell me.  It must be a doxie thing.  They are very funny.

This is Harley.  You can't see it real good here but this guy has the coolest mustache and beard.   

Best way to get a drink.

That soon turned in to water fun and Charlie and Gus wanted in on it.

Then it finally happened.  No, we did not duck tape Allred to a tree.  In fact I don't think I saw him all day.  But I did feel like I was being watched.  What happened was what Bert, Jamie, Abby, Willa, and Scrappy were hoping for.  And I gotta say all of us were hoping for.

Miss Vickie finally got home from Florida.  She smelled like suntan lotion and oranges.  Everydog wanted to greet her.  She didn't have enough hands to pet us all.

I was in charge of singing the welcome home song.  Yea, I nailed it.

While I had a blast helping at the Club while she was gone, what's even better is that she is back and all is right with the world.  And now my MOM can get that cup of coffee.  hehehhe



  1. What a great day with friends, Goose!
    Bert sure can jump :)

  2. Oh Goose, My Vickie IS BACK!. I mean, I loved it having you and your mom come and stay with us. And I had such a great great time with you, but MY VICKIE IS BACK.......

    When she got home and after all the petting and the lovin and the "just being close " to her again, we all sat down and read your blog.

    My vickie laughed and laughed until she couldn't even breath. She just loved the Sneaky Snake day. And she loves you and your mom for taking such good care of all of us and the day care and the kennel while she was away.

    And.....she brought you back the coolest present.

    I didn't get a present, John didnt' get a present, your mom didn't get a present BUT you did.

    I can't wiat until you see it.


  3. BOL ! another great day, Goose !
    I don't like vacuum... I'm affraid of it ! you are very very brave with the vacuumm.....
    I think your Mom deserves a lot of coffee cups !

  4. You guys have the BESTEST times together! I love that you all helped the new pups feel right at home. (I loved your Brando, GOOSE, seriously!) Bert's airborne pic is phenomenal. How does he do it?!?!
    I'm sure everyone was glad to have Bert's Vickie home!
    Play bows,

  5. What an awesome last day! So full of fun with all your friends. Goose I just loved your "STELLA!!" That was a very impressive Marlon Brando imitation! Though you had fun, I'm sure it will be good to be back in your own home with a great cup of coffee for your Momma!

  6. Oh wow, I bet you are ready for your cup of coffee now! Enjoy it!

  7. That looked like such a great day! So much fun! Rama says she wants to go!

  8. My pups could care less about the vacuum

    Stop on by for a visit

  9. Furst... My mom is very much RELIEVED that Your mom can now have all the coffee she wants... And after drinkin the coffee... RELIEVED takes on a WHOLE NEW MEANIN... and I'm not just tryin to be CHARMIN here. BAAAAWAAAAAH.

    OMD OMD what a major fun time you had. I think that Bert needs to make a movie... SUPERDAWG... judging from the way he can fly.

    I have truly LOVE this series.... well not the Allred and Vacula Pawts.. You did a WONDERFUL Job. Superb Pics and narratives. THANK YOU Goose!!!

  10. A lot of work for you and your mom Goose, but I think you had lots of fun too. Miss Vickie must have been very happy to receive such a warm greeting from everyone!

  11. I bet that was so much fun. Back when we lived in Missouri, we had a boarding kennel on our property. We also had two big play yards for the dogs with a great walking trail. I loved all the dogs that came to stay with us while their parents were on vacation. We were called Grandma and Grandpa to the dogs. Seeing this post made me really miss it, although we are just way to old to keep something like that up. Also I have two shih tzus, one loves the vacuum too and won't get out of my way, the other runs outside to hide!! Silly pups.

  12. It looks like you had a great time while staying at Bert's and I am sure Miss Vicki enjoyed her vacation. It is difficult for kennel owners to ever get away from the job. You and your mom are very nice to fill in like that.


  13. Hey Goose, Here in Hawaii, your name would be Nene-thought you'd like to know that. You and your mom are the bestest friends anyone could have-I know Ms.Vickie is mighty thankful for the time away. Wow, I still can't believe how wonderful you and your mom were to take over the kennel/daycare for her. Now life will get back to normal.
    Have a great day!

  14. Hi Y'all!

    Welcome home Miss Vickie!

    Hawk aka BrownDog

  15. You can tell that I'm a coffee addict based on the main thing that I can't get out of my head - you MOM waited all those days for a cup of coffee? Oh my....

    The canine country club looks like the coolest place. Fun dogs to play with, pools, balls,... you name it. Your MOM sure did work hard to make sure that everything was perfect for everyone.

    Ryder looks like fun little dude!

    I saw that Bert says that you're getting a present. I can't wait to see it!

  16. Goose, WOW can Bert ever jump! your pictures just scream FUN to me! I know you had so much fun leading everyone in the welcome home song. That's just like you, helping everyone else feel part of the gang and seeing beautiful!

    Happy seeing BEAUTFUL!

  17. Goose, we are so green with jelly. You had the most amazing time and you and your Mum were fabulous in caring for all those doggies. Its great to have Bert's Vickie back. We only wish we could visit the Day Care too cause it always looks wonderful. See ya soon. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  18. I would like to hear the welcome home song from goose! Love the pictures. Those are some lucky canines.

  19. Oh Goose, I can just hear your rendition of the Hallelujah Chorus!!!!!
    I'm so glad your Miss Vickie is HOME, and that was quite a welcome wagon that greeted her!!

  20. OK, this post did it for sure. WE want to go to Bert's place now and help his Mom out. There is so much fun going on there. We had a pool like that once, but none of us would go in it. Maybe we need to take lessons from those two sibes.

    Bet everypup was happy to see Miss Vickie arrive.
