Taking a Trip

After coming in from outside I noticed that there was something by my bed.  It was a bag and boots.
Me: MOM are you going somewhere?
MOM: Yes I am.
Me: Nooooooo.  
MOM: Why so sad Goosey
Me: I don't want you too.  I don't want you to leave me.
MOM: I'm not going to leave you.  You get to come too.
Me: Really? Where? It can't be backpacking cuz this is not the backpack.  And where is my stuff? 
MOM: I haven't gotten your stuff out yet.
Me: Oh I can help with that.  I'll get my stuff.

Me: OK I got my stuff together.
MOM: You are not taking all of that.  We are not going for that long.
Me: But I need my stuff.  And I still have a few more things in the office to get.
MOM: No.  You don't need all of that.  Besides you will be to busy to play with all that.
Me: To busy? One is never to busy to play.  Where are we going?  Have we gone there before?  What will the weather be like?  Will I know anyone there?  Will there be others there?  Why will I be busy? Are we taking my treats?  Is it far away?
Me: What? 
MOM: Yes we have been there before.  The weather is suppose to be raining like it is raining now.  Yes you will know others there. You'll be busy because you know others there.  Yes we will take treats.  It's not to far away.  Now you pick one thing to take with you.

Me:  OK OK.  I choose Sneaky Snake.  I can't trust him here alone with all my other stuff.  You saw what he did to bunny.
MOM: OK Sneaky Snake it is.
Me: MOM?
MOM: What?
Me: Will I like it where we are going?
MOM: Yes you will.  In fact you go there all the time and you love it.  Just this time I am going with you and we will stay till Monday.
Me: I go there all the time?  But you don't?  The only place I go and stay without you is Bert's place.
MOM: Goosey you are one smart dog.  That's where we are going.  We are going to stay there while Bert's Vickie goes away for a little while.
Me:  Woo Hoo.  Not that Vickie is going away, but woo hoo that I get to have a sleep over with my friends.  Which means I have to bring one more thing.
MOM: Oh Goose.  OK but first put away all the other stuff.

Me: BUBBLES!!!!!!!!!!!  Everydog is going to love this.  Just one more thing.
MOM: No more toys.  Don't even ask.
Me: No that's not it.  Yummmmm what about Allred.  Will Vickie take him with her.
MOM: No.  He is staying with us.
Me:  Oh, then I think we should pack some duct tape as well. It might come in handy.



  1. Oh Goose we can't wait to read about your visit with Bert while his Vickie is away for a few days! Take lots of photos and make that Sneaky Snake behave!

  3. I bet you are going to have SO MUCH FUN!!

    Your pal, Pip

  4. Hey Goose, I have been sad all day worrying about My Vickie going without me. But knowing that you and Michelle are coming to stay with me is like the best thing ever.

  5. Dear Goose,
    Yous is having a sleep over at Goose's! Wow! That will be sooo much fun! Don't stay up too late telling stories.
    Kisses for yous and Bert and Allred

  6. You all are going to have a lot of fun. I can't wait to see your reports on all the adventures.


  7. This sounds like it is going to be a GRAND adventure! Have lots of fun.

  8. You're going to stay with The Beast, I mean, Allred? Wooooo! Goose, you are a lot braver than I gave you credit for! Not that I thought you were a coward before, but, well, Allred! I think that cat might be possessed.


  9. Ah haha -- you're funny, Goose! You must be so excited to see all your friends. It's party time! :)

    Woofs & hugs, <3

    ~Bailey (Yep, I'm a girl!)

  10. Oh dear Goose - please send Bert a lot of kisses in my name! I'like to hear that you and your Mom are staying with him - so it's easier for him to be without his Vicky. You are such a good friend - and I wish you both the best Party ever!!
    Kisses Charlotte

  11. This is going to be a big adventure for you Goose! We can't wait to hear all about it!

  13. It look likes you are going to a party Goose ! Have lots of fun there !

  14. Goose, what a great place to go and stay. Is Bert going to be there or is he going with his Vickie? Can't wait to hear about your stay there. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  15. you speak so well, but that should not surprise me, since you LOOK so well also. enjoy your mini vacation visit.

  16. LOL Goose. I bet you were too busy to miss all the great toys you had to leave behind!

  17. BOL Goose!! Have a great time!!


  18. Oh Goose!! I am so sorry that you can't take all your stuffs with you, butt taking Sneaky Snake is a good idea... Maybe HE will tame Allred. Butt if not... there IS that Duck Tape!! THAT was good thinkin. I can't WAIT to see and hear all about your grrrreat time at Bert's House.

  19. Oh Goose, it sounds like you're going to have tons of fun with all those 4-leggers at Vickie's place. Your pile of "stuff" to take was too funny!!! Duct tape and Sneaky Snake sound like a great combo against that Allred!

  20. Goose, you are HYSTERICAL! What an adventure you have in store. I can only imagine Sneaky Snake and duct tape will lead to a hysterical episode. You might want to keep an eye on sneak snake in the off chance he does something with the duct tape without your approval.

    Thanks for the belly laughs today. They were absolutely BEAUTFUL!

  21. I am laughing out your shot of all your "NEEDS" Have a great time with all your pals. Thanks for the giggles

  22. Loved your pile of stuff Goose! Have fun at Bert's place and watch out for Allred!!

  23. Have fun at the slumber party!

    Stop on by for a visit

  24. Goose, definitely pack that duct tape - you never know which Allred will show up:) And about all those toys - if you are going to Bert's you don't have to worry about toys, you all are going to have a blast. HOpe all is well with Bert's family.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  25. Duct tape. Ha woo! (Oh... please don't tell Zim I laughed. He's got this thing for kit-cats.)
    I could keep an eye on Sneaky Snake if you need me to.
    Have fun with Bert and crew!

  26. Sounds like you're going to have fun. Can't wait to hear all about it. :)

  27. Woof to you Goose!!!! Sounds like you have a very exciting string of sleepovers with Bert and your other 4 legged friends to look forward to. As a chronic overpacker myself, I understand what a struggle it must have been for you to determine which things you truly needed to take to Bert's place with you and I think you chose wisely! Good luck with Allred and the duct tape.... Much love - XXOO - Mazzie

  28. Yep! You definitely have more stuff to pack than your Momma. Sorry you had to whittle it down though. How nice of your Momma to look after Vickies place for her. You're going to have loads of fun!

  29. Oh Goose, you put away toys?????????????????????
    Zoie only gets them out & out & out!!!!!
    It sounds like you are going to have a great time!!!
    You sleep with your Mom???? Mom must have a big BIG bed!!!!!!!!!
    I know if I slept with Zoie, she would be sleeping on me!!!!!!
