I am ashamed to admit that I have
pushed poor Bert too hard over the last
9 days. There has been major
construction on our house which
has been very discomforting
for all the dogs, especially Mr. Bert.
Then there were numerous
demonstrations to be done.
Much more than we normally
do in a week. The Therapy and the
School kids reading.
It was way too much pressure to
put on the boy. He took it all so
well until last Friday
and then it just seemed to
reach a breaking point
for him. Bad Human......
Bad My Vickie
There were many highlights
in the week though, one of the
best was Friday when we went
to Idaho Falls to do two demonstration.
On the way there we got to stop
in and meet our blogville friends.
WE met them at a park just off
the freeway and it was very exciting.
Bailey and I still have a few
things to work out, because.....well,
he's a guy and these were his
women and I was, well you know
the gorgeous and handsome
Man of the world.
The lovely Gretel quickly
won my heart with her sweet
and happy spirit. She was lots of
fun and we even got a video
of her doing her obedience to show
you, but My Vickie says we need
to wait a few days before we
post it. You'll love it.
Hazel was the most patient
with me. She even came up and
gave me a kiss, well
And then, even after I was a bit
moody with Bailey, Miss Linda, who is
by the way.....a great and fun human being,
gave me my own stuffy. She actually had
two stuffies in the bag, one for me and
one for Goose, but I got to pick.
Hope you don't mind Goose, I picked
the lion. You'll have to wait until Monday
to see who you got. It was a wonderful time.
After we left my friends from the Pug
ranch we continued on to Idaho Falls
where we met up with My Vickie's
sister Debbie and her hubby John.
Then we went to a school full of
fun kids and did a demo and another
one later in the day.
Back to earlier in the week.
I love my groomer and you may not
be able to tell but this is a smile I
have on my face and I save it just
for her. I don't even smile for
My Vickie, just the groomer.
More hospital visits and one final
visit to the kids at the school, I am
going to really miss our reading time.
But My Vickie says it will start
up again in just a few months
and we are very excited because
Miss Sugar has sent us some
books to share with the kids. I
can't wait to let them read it too me.
If you want a good read you should
check this out Sugar's Furry Friend
More demo's too. I especially
like it when we do them outside
in parks. Here I am modeling
"How to stay warm and dry"
Or here I am playing the Lake
and teaching the children how
to approach water when lost.
But it wasn't all work,
Miss Sophie and I played a
game of softball while waiting
for the kids to arrive.
I missed this one, but I
tried really hard.
Miss Sophie and Paulette played
the outfield. She was pretty good.
And "YOUR OUT"
There was a trip to the Lake
but I got into a little trouble
on that one. check out Goose's Blog
to read about it.
Allred is in one really
bad place and has been for
months, but we will write more
about that in a few days.
Anyway, My Vickie realizes she
has put too much pressure on
me over the last few weeks
and so this Saturday and Sunday
was all about me getting LOTS
and LOTS of rest.
So now I am off to bed again
but here are a few more pics
from the last few days that
we thought you might like.
Here's my bud Dougal who
got to go to the Pineview lake this
week and, check this out
He then got to turn around
and spend the day at the
Great Salt Lake. Check out
all that salt. Not a great lake
to drink the water in, but
still a pretty fun lake to swim in.
You know, you can't sink in it.
Bongo has been spending
some quality time with Kristi.
This week she and Kona got
to work on the treadmills.
They want to get fit and look great
for when someone is lucky enough
to adopt them. Fingers Crossed everyone.
Zero shows off his pearly whites.
And I experience the
"Big Red Slide"
Hopefully things will quiet
down a bit this coming week
for both of us. I think My Vickie
is almost as tired and moody
as I have been.
