Hiking Boots

Hello Friends. 
So there I was going about my normal stuff. Rolling in the grass, chewing a stick, laying in the shade, walking my property, finding sticks, barking at the horses going by the front of the house, chasing dragon flies, and chewing sticks.  You know normal Goose stuff.  I went into the house.  I think I could smell them even before I entered the room.  And then I saw them.

What are MOM's hiking boots doing out?
"Hey Cheeto do you know why MOM's hiking boots are out?  Oh Dog do you think we are going hiking????  Could it be?"
Oh the beautiful smell of adventure!
"Mom are we going hiking?"
"Then why are your hiking boots out?  I think it would be a great idea to go for a hike."
"Are they out?" 
"Yes!  Yes, they are right here!  Since they are out already maybe we should go for a hike."
"Oh Gooie I don't think so.  Maybe some other time."
"But MOOOOOOOM!  Why would you put your hiking boots out here if we are not going hiking?"
"I guess you will just have to wait and see."
"Awwwww I don't want to wait!"  {{Sob}}
"Wonderfully beautiful things can happen if we just give it time."
"Yea I know........ How much time?"
Stay tuned friends and think good happy hiking thoughts for me.


  1. Goose be careful if you do go hiking! Bert's Mommy talks a lot about the snakes where you live and even a doggie who goes to your doggie care was injured badly by a big scary snake. You have to be careful because if you got hurt, then your Mommy would be all worried and sad.

  2. Me is thinking hard!!!!
    Hiking, hiking, hiking, hiking

  3. ::Those boots are made fur walkin,

  4. I know, I know.....I mean, seriously, I know
    But I wont tell you, no matter how hard you beg, no matter how much treats you offer me. I wont tell. But I KNOW.....

  6. Although the wait is usually worthwhile, it is so HARD! Patience...and anticipation!

  7. Hopefully, hiking will be in your (near) future!


  8. Woof! Woof! It's good and worthwhile to wait. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

    By da way, I likes your monkey's name Cheeto...hehehehehehe.


  12. We are hoping you are going on a hike real soon!!! I have a funny feeling it might be real soon! :)

  13. Goose what a very perplexing situation. Surely your Mom realizes you are an intelligent, handsome K9 and your nose knows something is up!!
    Take a nap and surely everything will be better when you awake!!
    Sweet dreams
    hugs madi your bfff

  14. Oh boy Goose! The suspense must be killing you. I'm sending my best hiking thoughts your way buddy! :)

  15. Good luck, Goose! I hope that whatever it is, you have a great time!


  16. I'm sure a great adventure will wait for you!!! I'm so exited to hear about.... and if you go to the mountains it could happen that you will see YETI....

  17. Sending you all kinds of happy hiking thoughts!

    Your pal, Pip

  18. Ah, some of the most beautiful things in life come with time. I'm sure the suspense is just eating at you (and Cheeto, by the looks of him). Goose, maybe you should just start doing a little hiking training around the yard. Maybe. Just a little. Just in case.

    Happy seeing beautful!

  19. Hiking....never tried that one....hope you get to go very soon!

  20. Maybe you should just hike around the livingroom until all the snakes go into hibernation....thats what we do here at our house we practice hike in the house until I decide I am ready to walk out in the real world...we have practiced hiked for two years so it may be awhile longer until I am ready.
    Have a great wednesday

  21. Oooh, to be continued! That's so exciting!

  22. We tried and tried and tried to figure it all out for you Goose, but couldn't come to a consensus around here. A hike would be fantastic and a lot of fun and you could collect all the sticks you want. Maybe she's just teasing you and Mom is just gonna wash the boots instead. Oh, that would be bad..... OK, bad for you but good for the boots!

    We'll be waiting to hear the outcome.......

    Lily Belle

  23. Hiking sounds great but maybe you are going CAMPING and that would be even better!!!!!!!!!

  24. I hope you find out what your adventure is soon. If it's a hike in the mountains you better be careful, I hear sneaky snakes buddies are out there!!

  25. I'm just curious ... since your MOM's boots smell like adventure - do they smell like cinnamon buns? Ha woooooo!
    Oh, I hope this means you and your MOM are going off on some really fun adventure together -- and SOON!!! I just can't wait!

  26. Hi Goose, I can't wait to see what happens. Hunter is tugging on my capris right now and barking, I think he wants to come visit you. You guys be careful with snakes please. Happy Day to you.

  27. Oh Goose, it must be a great adventure your going on...a suprise :) Aw wez can't wait to find out :) xx00xx
