Today was Perfect
Perfect in so many ways
For instance:
My Vickie learned today a
friends mother had passed away.
As she headed to the car
and got in, she noticed
something on the dash.
 The "Perfect" Cupcake
Gooses mom had left it for her
as a surprise and it couldn't have
come at a better time.
 Chocolate Cake
mint filling inside the cupcake
with a hard chocolate top
with more mint filling.
I heard her arteries screaming
but there was a smile on
her face when she ate it.
 I found the "Perfect" look
for me.  A nice red cap.
I had to take it off Pastor
Michelle's head, but
I think it looks better on me.
What do you think?
I mean, she looks OK
but I think I look better.
 And then when we was doing our
daily walk through at My Vickies
second job.  I found the "Perfect"
toy.  A purple pig.  "Perfect"
 Now you may think the above
"Perfect" is about Goose, who is
the "Perfect" friend, but it is also
about the picture in the background
of our mountain goats on the
top of the mountain on a
beautiful day.
 For sweet Tanner who
is three days out from some
pretty hairy surgery
"Perfection" is a comfy bed
and My Vickies woolen robe
as a blanket.
 Today while the kids were
practicing their reading with me
at the school, this one
little fella held my paw in
his hand all the time he read.
"Perfection" again.  There is nothing
in the world that us dogs
want more than the loving
touch of a human.
And finally, as you can
see it was the "Perfect" blue
sky, dark and warm, bearing the
hope of warmer days to come.
Today was truly

  6. A perfect day for a perfect golden :)

  7. Perfection IS NOT over rated. You do look great in my MOM's baseball hat. I do believe you rock it buddy. But ya gotta give it back. It is one of her favorites. Oh sure she has about 87 hundred of the baseball hats, but for some reason this one is her 3rd favorite. I mean she only has one head, so why so many hats. Humans! I will see you in the morning. Oh by the way, are there any cupcakes left?

  8. How lovely to read of your perfect day, Bert!

    And we agree, that red cap is just perfect on you!!!


  9. You truly did have the perfect day, Bert! We love you in that red hat!

    Love ya lots,

  31. Thank you for pointing out that there is perfection in every day, even if we have to slow down and recognize it! We're rooting for more warm sunny days - as much as we love our snow, our Mom takes us on longer walkies when the roads are clear and she isn't freezing!

    Much love!
