The joy of children

 I love kids.  Just love them.
And this week I have been
blessed to be with Many Children
 It makes me jump for joy. 
This week I visited my new
friend who is staying at the Hospital
after being burned over 33 percent of his
little body.  He had been told I was coming
so when I got there he greeted me with
his first smile of the day.
He has a long recoup period
so if you are prayin folks,
would you send a prayer up
for my Boy Ryan.
 We also got to hike up to
my favorite place in the world
to do demonstrations.
It is a place where school kids
get to go to spend the day
learning about the wilderness.
I come up and teach them how to stay
Safe if they are in the wilderness.
 Miss Sophie came with me this
time and we had about 150
kids to play with for the day.
Now how cool is that?
 Some of the best times we have
on these demos is the hike up to where
we do the demo and the hike back
down after we are through
I was excited to show Miss Sophie
all the fun we can have when she
comes with me. 
Today I went and played with more
kids and adults at the hospital
and now, I am very tired 
 My buddy Goose gave me this
cool stuffed doggy (this is his head)
and I now have a great place
to lay my head at the end of a big
fun week.
So below, for those of you whol like to
watch video's is a short film
on Sophie and my trip hiking
up to the Center where the kids are
and playing our way back home.
Plus a bunch of kids.
I love kids.

  1. I love being around kids too, but my mom and dad don't know any for me to visit with. I love the song in your video too. You and Sophie sure had fun.


  2. Oh Bert I hope some day you take me to that special place. It looks wonderful. I am glad you like your new "pillow" I hope it brings you sweet sweet dreams. Your the best buddy for all you do and mostly for just being your loving self.

  3. Bert, you are such an amazing dude. Not only do you love kids, but they love you too! It's so cool that Miss Sophie went with you. You can teach her the ropes, all about how to be an awesome role model.

  4. That 'hike' looked more like a romp and run. We thought you were going to wag your tail right off!!

    Kids are VERY tiring. No wonder you were exhausted.

    XXXOOO Daisy, bella & Roxy

  8. How nice that you could give that boy Ryan a reason to smile. All those kids look very happy to be with you and Sophie and I know that you two had a great time too!

  9. two really had a fun day with the kids and then in the snow!

    Hap-Pee Turds-Day!


  10. Shrunken hobo mans are fun to play with? But they are noisy and loud and try grabbing at the can that be fun? Maybe it is because you are special Bert ....they actually behave around you.

  11. What an amazing adventure - I am so glad that Ryan smiled, it's a sad story so it's wonderful to think you brought him some happiness.

    That snow looks like a huge amount of fun!



  12. Oh I love being with kiddos too, but it looks like you really had some good times! I also really like your action with that dog stuffie :)

  13. I think that Kids are almost as good as Snacks and Naps.
    That was so very much wonderful of you to go to the hospital to see the kids who are not feeling good. BRAVO BUDDY!!!
    you and Sophie had a super time together.

  14. Bert we can't seem to find the right words to tell you what a blessing you are to us, to the children and to your doggy friends. We loved the song, and the video. We will remember Ryan in our prayers.

  32. This is wonderful! Did you write the song? It's so perfect with the video. What a joy to see such happy, healthy doggies!

  33. How fun! I bet the kids loved having you guys come to visit!


  34. Looks like you're great with kids, there mate... I'm really not.... bol!

  35. That is so cool that you do all that for those kids, Bert!

  36. You are so great with kids... we aren't even good with adults, so I doubt our mom would let us babysit like you did... when we adult sit our mom's friends, we like to lick them to see if their noses are wet... you know, health check... and give them a sniff, to see if we have met them before.. and we always like to have a smidgen of their food, just to make sure it is ok for them to eat.

    Wonder why mom doesn't invite many people over....
