The Bone

Hello Friends.

My MOM bought two bones for me and Belle.  She thought it was cool that these two bones came in the same package but each was a little different.  

MOM put them on the floor and I let Belle choose which one she wanted.

She choose the orange like one.  I think it must have been a cheese like flavor, I think.

So I got this one.  It is more of a chicken broth flavor.

I Know what you are thinking, "Goose you sure are eyeing the bone Belle has."  Well you would be right.  I think I would like that one more.

For a moment Belle let me try hers and she took mine.  I was right I did like her's better.  She thought mine was OK, but the orange like one was the best.  We traded back and forth for a while.  Not in a mean way, we just share it.  Then my MOM took it away from us and went outside, without us.  We were very puzzled over this.  Did my MOM want it for herself?  When she came back it she put the bone on the floor.

That MOM of mine went in the garage and got out the jig saw and cut the bone in two so we could both enjoy the bone we liked best.

I'm trying to show off.  "See Belle I can fit the whole thing in my mouth."  You can tell she is impressed.

Sharing is the best.  And when we are done we will still have another bone for another day.  Win win.

I call this synchronized chewing.  Maybe that could be an Olympic event next time.

After the bones it was time for a sun puddle nap. Belle took the spot on the floor.

I got the puddle on the couch.  You are looking at one satisfied dog.



  1. Oh that Mom of yours is pretty darn smart and super awesome Goose! :-D A cheese flavored bone sounds darn delicious too, no wonder you both enjoyed it! Naps in the sun are the best kind and especially when it's cold outside!

  2. Nothing beats trading bones

    Stop on by for a visit

  3. You and Belle sure are great friends to be able to share a bone so close to each other. You are one lucky dog.


  4. Wow! Not arguing ther! Belle is one sweetheart!

  5. Woof! Woof! it's TASTY Tuesday on my blog today. Make sure you add your post/url on the hop (it should open soon, time issues). Sweet that you shared. Belle such a great addition in your household. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  6. Goose, you sure were polite to let Belle choose which bone she wanted.

    Your mom is one smart cookie.

  7. It is wonderful to see you two sharing and having such fun together! We do the same thing here...we always want what the other one has!! Just the way it is...Daddy has to saw stuff apart here too! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

  8. True love is: to chew bones together ;o) That was a very good idea to cut the bone ...and I'm glad your mom did it without a carnage (like my mom):o)

  9. I think the bone that someone else has is always better..... Lucky your ma has a jigsaw!

    You do look happy and content.

    Tail Wuggles,


  10. ahhh goose your mom is so clever i would of never thought of that :)

    Charlene and Stormy

  11. Your Mom is very smart. It sounds like a perfect day!

  12. Sun puddles and a bone ...what could be better. That was a great idea to cut the bone in half so you could share.

  13. We know the King Solomon routine. Many a time my peeps cut a pigs ear or hide in half so Pippinpumpkin and I could share. You both look very contented. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  14. Goose right off the bat I want to commend you for being such a gentleman to let Belle chose first. I bet you also let her go through the doors first!! Be still my lady cat heart a man w manners!! If you were wearing a bow tie, I would probably be your slave for life. MOL MOL
    You and Belle are very sweet together...have you known each other forever?
    Hugs madi your BFFF

  15. How sweet. The two of you share so nice! Brudder Max (DaOdderWeenie) won't share anything with me! :(

  16. You're such a nice dog Goose... I'm pretty sure I'd want both bones.

  18. I just love your Momma Goose! She thinks just like me. I do the exact same thing with a few bones for Fred and Gloria as they always seem to want the same one. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who has sawed bones in half. Sharing is caring. You and Belle just look so sweet each in your own sun puddle! :)

  19. Your mom sure is a smart lady, and you are such a gentleman! I bet Belle is hoping her stay with you lasts for a long time!


  20. Goose,

    You are a true gentleman, your Mom taught you how to treat a lady.
    Blessings to you!

  21. Now that there Goose, is an excellent lesson in sharing!

    We love that your Mom cut the bone in half. My Mom does that too but only because some of them are way too big for me (in HER opinion.) No bone is too big!

    Hope that you and Belle have another beautiful day together!

    Lily Belle & Muffin

  22. What a very smart momma you have! Cinderella and I trade our treats all the time. I think some things are just better shared.

  23. Your mom sure is smart. Goose you sure are good at sharing. Please don't swallow that thing

  25. Your mom is one smart cookie!! So nice of you to share--plus now you have another bone for another day.

  26. Your mom is a real smart woman!!! Sammer and I would have been hissing and growling and rolling around on the really he would have just stole mine and hid it under the bed for himself later!

  30. Gosh, that must be why you are both so tired today. I mean, you get dropped off and you both come in and go to sleep. Seriously Dude, I thouhgt you would want to play since I havn't seen you for two days.

  31. Oh I like this whole sharing concept. I think you are having a great time with your friend!

  32. Your MOM is BRILLIANT! For a biped, I mean. You know. What a great solution, though.
    Does the bone taste like Cheetos? That's what flavor it looks like to me. Cheetos. Not that I've ever had any, but the color looks like Cheetos.
    Play bows,

  45. How great is it to have a friend like Belle and a mom like MOM? You are SO blessed!

  46. Hey Goose!

    Grr and Woof,

  47. How neat for your mom to cut that in half so you can share it. Jan says she is not buying us a bone to try to cut into 3 parts, though.
