Snow, Friends, & a Hoot

Hello Friends.

As promised I have more pictures of my romp in the snow.  What I didn't mention is that I had a couple of friends join me.  My buddy Bert (of course) and Miss Sophie.  You won't believe how fast she is growing up.

See what I mean.  She is getting so big.  

And oh boy does she love Bert!

She does not hug me like she hugs Bert.  But she loves to follow Uncle Goose through the woods.

Oh we ran, and romped, and played in our special Fort.  We had the whole place to our selves and we made the most of it.

Of course no romp at the Fort in winter would be complete without the group photo of us in a tree.  That's right, we are in a big old tree.

On Tuesday night MOM played laser light with me outside.  At one point she looked up and thought she saw a pigeon sitting on a wire that runs into our house.  But she was wrong.  Take a look.

It was an Owl!  What a Hoot. hehhehe

How cool is that?  I think it is a young one cuz it is not as big of an owl as we have seen before.  It just sat up there watching me play with my laser light in the snow.    Wonder what the owl thought of that.


  1. Wow! We has heard the owls in our backyard and we sees their shadow but we has not seen them that clear!
    And boy oh boy does your romps look like fun!

  2. You always have so much fun with your friends at the fort. Miss Sophie sure is growing fast. You and your mom are real lucky to see an owl although he probably wanted you to go in the house so he could get hunting.


  3. Hahaha, he probably thought that you were a seriously odd and crazy pup!!! Wowee, you had some awesome fun at the fort with Bert and Sophie! She is getting huge, isn't she?! :-) What a wonderful thing to do around New Year's!

  4. Hey Goose! Looks like you had fun! Happy New Year to you!!!

  5. Man Goose, you didn't tell me about the owl. That is so cool. I wonder if it wanted to come play lazer light with you. We used to have owls but all the building and traffic that has started up over the last few years has made them move.

    You are so lucky.

    see you in the morning

  6. Wow ... your fun in the snow makes me like winter a bit more :)! Sounds magical and fun with your friends and an owl! So cool. Happy New Year!

  7. What a pretty owl. We loves all the exciting pics your Mom takes and the exciting things you see on your walks. Thank you for sharing each and every one with us. XOXO

  8. You have snow AND owls??? wowza. You're a lucky pupper!! Happy New Year!!

  9. What a fun day you had playing in the snow. That is a beautiful owl, it reminds me of my sweet Tweedles pal Owlbert.

    Happy New Year

  16. I just love love love seeing you romp and play with Sophie and Bert!!
    Best Buds are priceless!! I bet Bert tricks Sophie into hugging him..he probably has meaty breath or something!!

    WHAT A ONCE IN A LIFETIME OWL shot...it was a hoot for use to see it too. Wonder if owls taste like chicken?
    Hugs madi your BFFF

  17. What lovely photos. You guys had such a great time!
    Happy new year!

  18. Oh the beautiful pictures of the owl, very cool. Those are hard pictures to get. Good job. Love the group photo too. :)

  19. What a great romp in the snow! And that picture of the three of you in the tree is fantastic! Now that's how to start the year off right.

    I bet Mr. Owl was trying to figure out just what the heck you were doing outside with your laser light. Maybe next time, see if he would like to join in on the fun.

  20. i am battling OwL envy right now. what a great shot and find. and the photo of the three of you is really beautiful, the one above the owl. great shot, in fact super

  21. I bet that sweet owl wanted to join in the fun. Just think s/he had probably been snoozing all day and had so much energy. I wonder if the owl had its own game after you all went inside for the evening. I bet you're the talk of the Owl Town! Have you read the book Owl Moon by Jane Yolan? It's a children's picture book, but it's one of the most beautiful picture books out there.

    P.S., You three look like you were having a ball - as usual! Maybe it was even a snowball-sized fun romp!!

  22. I just saw on Puddles' blog that your mom has New MOAN ya. I am soooooo sorry to hear that. I can't imagine what your life is like when your mom as a NEW Moan ya. Mom's can be kinda Difficult and Grumpy and stuffs with OLD MOANS at us. I suppose it is TWICE as bad with a NEW MOAN thingy. Ernie and I hope that she HURRIES and Wears it out REALLY Soon.
    WHOA Buddy what a MAJOR fun time you all had in the snow... esp at your FORT.
    WOW WOW WOWIEEEEEE that OWL is amazing. He was WISE to stay up there ... outta your way when you were doing your SNOW ZOOMIE... LASAR LIGHT thingy.
    PeeS... Get WELL SOON to your mom.

  23. Hey Goose!
    Wow, what great snow zoomers you all are! I'm totally impressed with the technique and I really wish I'd been there too! Great job slushing and swooshing. OMD owls are so very pawesome! I bet he was impressed with your zooming too.
    I'm sending tons of healing vibes to your Mom!
    Happy 2013, buddy!
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  24. Your snow pix are GREAT and that looks like so much fun! But WOW, Mom is going WOW over your owl pix!!! How beautiful is that!?!?
    I'd love to come play in your fort with you. You need a really cool snow fort in your fort - don't you think? And I'm just the guy to build one for you!
    Have a great day, Goose!
    Play bows,

  25. Looks like ya'll sure are having fun romping in the white stuff! Happy WW!

  26. what a brilliant romp in the snow you had Goose and friends. I wish I lived nearer you so I could come to.

    Do you think i could make it swimming over the pond?

    Love the owl too, that would scare me though.

    Have fun today Buddy


  27. It's a zoomie extravaganza! How weave pictures of the snow

  31. It looks like the three of you had great fun, i love your smile Goose in the picture of youse three in the old tree!!
    Love Milo :)

  32. We cannot believe Sophie is getting so big and we have only played with her one time and that did not even count cuz we were on leash! She is probably 100 times bigger than me already! I am gonna have to talk to mom and dad about this problem! Oh, that was a cool own. Did you play with it?

    Stay Calm & Bark On,

    Murphy & Stanley

  33. Yup, what a hoot. We love owls! Mama wakes up daddy every time she hears one at night...daddy doesn't like them owls, he prefers his sleep!

  34. Cool! We love owls too, but none come close enough to take their picture. Loved your romp in the snow!

  35. Wonderful photos of you and your pals romping through the snow!

    And, that photo of the young owl is great!!

  36. Looks like you. Guys had a great time in the now. That owl is SO cool!

  37. Wow, wow, and wow. A wonderful romp - and you made me smile with the photos. Sophie sure is growing fast. She looks like a really fun girl!

    I love the owl!!! And, actually, I bet that it's a grown-up (they're usually full-grown by this time of year). I've seen many that were about that size in our area. One was a Saw-whet Owl who perched on our deck railing. Thanks for sharing!

  38. Hey Goose - I think it was a Boreal Owl. How cool is that?

  39. Looks like so much fun!!! I am glad you were able to spend fun time in the snow with your friends!

    That owl is SO AMAZING!!!!

    Your pal, Pip

  40. Oh my dog, Goose you and your friends have so much fun at your fort, it's really fun for us, to get to see how much fun you all have. We love the picture of all you happy dogs in the tree. That owl must of thought your were a hoot, chasing around the light BOL..........

    The silvers and more

  41. Hi Goose,
    The woods are lovely, dark and deep (with snow) but you have promises to keep and miles to go before you sleep! BOL!
    What a wonderful time you all must have had together, it looks like so much fun! I love the snow, I especially like running in it!
    The Owl is so cool, he must have enjoyed watching you play with your Mom! He sure is a handsome hoot of a fella!
    Keep enjoying your wonderful snow, still wanting it to come my way so I can play like you!
    Love, Licks and Hugs from your Furiend Frank XxxxX

  42. Howdy Goose, I loved seeing you playing with all your bud's! Looks like you still have a good amount of snow. I hope that baby Owl doesn't think you look tasty. Your card game looks so much fun that Hunter wants to use my google map on my IPhone to figure out how to get there. BOL.
    Wags, Noreen
