And Now Back to Our Story

Hey All.

Sunday I showed you a little teaser photo of me and my friend Bert.

This is how it began.

"Awe come on Bert let me play with your ball."


He finally let me chase him while he had his ball.

I tried to sneak in a grab.  But that Bert just would not let go.

It did finally slip his super strong grip, or he was just teasing me and let it drop.

But I always say, "Seize the opportunity."  And I sprinted my fastest.

For a big fluffy guy Bert is super fast and he got to the ball first.  But I kept trying.

Oh so close, yet so very far away.

Oh My Goodness!!!  I'm in the lead!  I just might get this thing.  Paws don't fail me now.

It is a It's a photo finish.  Who got to the ball first???????  Place your bet friends. 

ME!!!!  I got it, I got it!  There are so many to thank for this moment.  My momma for taking me to Bert's,  Bert's Vickie for letting Bert play with me, all the other pups standing around cheering me on, and my never give up attitude.  What I learned in all this is that if you want something, if you believe in something if you have a passion for something NEVER GIVE UP.  Oh sure Bert beat me to the ball 9 out of 10 times.  And each of those 9 times he did I learned something and it made my desire for the ball all the more stronger. 

And when you get that "ball" then you start all over again with more confidence and belief in yourself.  Thanks Bert for being such a good friend to me and teaching me a thing or two.  You really are a Golden Boy in every way.



  1. From Vickie: Oh my goodness Buddy, you are such a shining light to all others. I can only hope that Burt learns as much from his friendship with you as I learn from my friendship with your human.....and especially thanks for the humor in your lessons.

  2. Oh that look like amazing funs! I'm glad you got the ball in the end!
