Funny Friday

Hello Friends.

We all go through it, training.  Sit, stay, down, retrieve, fetch, wait, heel, roll over, get me a beer.  Yea we have all been there, mom's and dad's training us to be the best we can be.  BUTT what the parents don't know is we really are training them.  Oh sure we follow their commands and directions.  Without a us barking a word we have trained them to do what we want.  Case in point: While at my buddy Bert's house, Bert's ball went under some furniture where he could not get his Golden butt under there to get it back.  What were we to do.  Enter my very well trained MOM.

"That's right MOM it's right under there."
"Goose you have a very well trained mom."

"Bert buddy I have been training her my whole life."
"Dude we didn't even have to ask her to get my ball, she just got down here."

"The key, Bert my friend, is constant reinforcement.  Well that and lots of love, kisses and cuddles.  It is VERY important to have a well trained MOM."
"True that Goose."
Friends I would like to point out that there are TWO balls totally in reach for Bert and me right behind Bert.  Yet that is not the ball we wanted.  A well trained MOM knows this and will retrieve the one we want.

As you can see MOM got Bert his ball.  Now she is making sure there is not a wayward stick under there for me.  Hehehhe.  So friends go ahead let them think they are "training" us.  We know the real truth.  Gotta go now, MOM needs a beer.


  1. HEy Goose buddy, youo train your mom to do that and as you can see I have trained My Vickie to document and photgraph the evidence.

  2. Truth be told, i think our pets have us all trained!!


  3. HahaMeow! This is so true, Goose.
    Thank you for sharing the funniest pics we've seen all week!

  4. Yup, trainin da peeps is important.

    Best wishes Molly

  7. I've watched the pups slowly train Aaron over the years without him knowing it. I've tried to point it out, but he is in deep denial. BOL - I can't wait to see what they teach him next.

  8. Hehehe, Goose, you are a grreat trainer mate. Mum deserved her beer after crawling to get your ball. Have a grreat weekend. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  9. you are a fabulous trainer, brother! I sometimes throw things behind my bed and call my mom to pick it up for me... just to refresh the lessons she learnt from me :o) I agree with you and Bert, it's not to get any ball, it's to get THIS ball, nof ifs no butts.

  10. Shhhhhh..don't tell anyone how well trained our Moms really are!

  11. BOL! Goose, I agree with you 110%! I have two humans to train, and I think Mom has been easier to train than Dad, but it's a constant work in progress. Thank you for a huge morning giggle today!


  12. now the secret is OUT... us humans are totally trained... good job mom

  13. OMD GOOSE you have your mom trained to be a TRUE RETRIEVER Just like Bert is.
    THAT is FANGtastic fur Sure. Well done buddy.

  14. You have done a great job training your mom Goose. She is a very good friend to Bert too.

  15. Goose, you have a very well-trained Mom!!! No ifs, ands or BUTTS about it:)

  17. Your MOM is VERY good! My squeaky tennis ball went into some bushes in the yard the other day and Mom and I couldn't find it. When my daddy came home, he plunged RIGHT in and dug and dug around until he found it. Very. Well. Trained.
    Yours sincerely,

  18. You do have a very well trained mom. BOL Have a nice weekend. :)

  19. Everybody has a job to do and as long as they do it everything works like a well greased machine!

  20. Hi Y'all!

    All I can say is that, even if I didn't know y'all are in the West, I'd know y'all weren't in the deep South...lots of areas around these parts are Southern Baptist. You pretty much can't find a church of any other denomination. When you belong to "the church" you believe drinking, even beer, is a Sin. Yep, no beer to reward your poor Mom.

    Oh, don't worry Goose, my Humans aren't Southern Baptists, but if the Southern Baptists are correct,my Humans aren't going to go to Heaven either.

    Hope your Mom enjoys that beer! and y'all have lots of fun with that ball!

    Y'all come by now,

  21. Goose my pal, bravo and well done. It takes years of training to get these Mommy people in line. You have it perfected. I need to learn more from you. My Mommy is almost there, but I just need a little more tweaking. I will keep on it and report back.

    Love Sasha
