Today I got to go and see
some of my and My Vickie's
friends up in the little town
of Heber Utah.
 I have missed them so much
so it was great fun to go and spend the
day with them.  I was able to
run free on the ranch the whole day
except when they went to see
the baby foals.  Now I am not afraid of
horses at all, but they were afraid I might
make the babies nervous.
I didnt' mind.  I spent the time
with Erianne. 
This baby is about three weeks
old and My Vickie fell in love.
I thought we were going to have
to bring her home with us.
A new baby is expected soon
and we are hoping to be up there
shortly after.  The momma horse
was incredibly loving and sweet.
My Vickie really misses having horses
but we turned the pasture
into a play area for the pups that
come and stay with us so
horses are a thing of the past.
The family live at the base of
one of our favorite mountain ranges
That is Timpanogos in the back ground
boy wouldn't you love to wake up
to that view every morning.
Here I am getting to know momma horse.
She sniffs butts just like us dogs do
when we greet.  IT made me a little bit
nervous though.  I mean, look at her
if she decided to give me a love nip
she could break me in half.
My Vickie got bit in the butt once by a
horse.  It wasn't a pretty sight.
WE got on a four wheeler
machine and road around the ranch.
Did you know, if My Vickie
should die, I get to come and live
here.  Yep, I could be a ranch dog
how cool would that be.
(But that isn't going to happen)
Goose and I have been modeling
a new kind of vest that is going
to be a new sensation.  It is made especially
for dogs to help with muscle and health
issues and a lot of other things.
I am not completely sure what
it all does, but My Vickie is going
to find more out about it
and let you all know.
So it has been a long couple
of days so I am off to sleep
Tomorrow I get to go visit my
friend Ryan who is in the
hospital.  I'll let him know
how all of you are wishing him
well.  Have a happy
and beautiful Sunday my friends


  1. What a fun visit and yes we would love to wake up to that view. I'm sure you will make Ryan feel better when you visit him.

    Cindy & Millie

  2. OH my GOSH Bert!!!! If you didn't live so far away, I'd be asking if I could come visit you for a while - what a day you had of it!!! I LOVE horses and ranches (well, we call them farms in Ireland and Australia but you know what I mean) and I would love to meet all those other four legged ones you met!!! And the view - well, I'm a dog, I don't get too excited about views (I'm too busy sniffing) but She was amazed by it!!! So glad you had a great day and say Hi to Ryan from us Down Under when you visit him tomorrow. We hope he is feeling a bit better.



  3. OMD! That farm is fantastic. AND you got to run free...most of the time. You are soooooo lucky.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  4. Nice new site my friend. Looks like you have been having a wonderful time on the ranch! My mama loves horses too, me, I am fascinated and love the smell!
    Give Ryan a lick from me when you visit :) It's healing as you well know!

  5. That looks like an amazing day out, Bert. If you lived closer to us, you could come and meet our horsies too

  10. OMD BERT.... we did NOT know that horses would sniff butts like WE do. THAT is so Cool. BUTT we would be really SCARED after hearing what happened to Miss Vickie's Butt.
    Ernie has NEVER sniffed a horse... BUTT I (Frankie Furter) have!! I have even gone fur a horse RIDE.
    THAT is a gorgeous ranch!!

  11. Bert, we think Your Vickie will be there with you for a long time to come, but it is wonderful to know you have such a beautiful and loving home as your backup. Loved all the photos.

    Happy St. Paddy's Day!

  12. What a great ranch, Bert. I can see why you and your Vicky like it so much. Maybe that little baby horse could fit in your backseat?


  13. What a great place! It reminds Mommy of the ranch she used to go to when she was young.

  14. What a beautiful place.....Hope Ryan is doing better.
    Cant wait to hear more about those vests. Happy Sunday.

  15. That horsie looked like she was going to eat your tail, Bert!

    Pippa :)

  17. Wow, Bert! You've been one busy guy. Beautiful horsey, but you is more beautiful! :)

  18. YES! I would love to wake up to that view and go to sleep with it too. I met some horsies on my Chrissie holiday, Bert! It was my first time. They were so big! They didn't want to play with me though, stuck ups.

    The Typist says to tell Your Vickie she's very pleased to finally meet another human being who's been bitten by a horse. She got bitten when she was 15 on the breast! Hahaha! She's been nervous of horses ever since.

  19. That place is beautiful! What a nice hoomin person.

  20. What a great group of photographs! Interesting vest. I'll be looking forward to hearing more about it and what it does for you.

  21. Woof! Woof! Oh Bert its a beautiful ranch. It made miss my horse friend Blaze. Oh I don;t think your Vickie will allow you to live there ... just a visit. Oh! interesting vest. Can't wait to hear more about it. Golden LOVE. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  23. Hi Y'all!

    Whoa! That vest looks hot, is it?

    Love your new look...what did you do Bert? Are those silly people accusing you of stuff that somebody else did?

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

    P.S. Maybe Blogger will stop puttin' you in my spam folder ;) Gotta get you out everytime! I'll be watchin' though!

  24. You and that baby horse are kinda the same color! A day at the ranch sure looks like fun!

  25. We thought we saw you wave on your way to Heber! Heehee! Wasn't Saturday beautiful? What a perfect day to go to Heber and check out the horses (and be checked out by them)! Looks like you had a fantastic time! And yes, that view of Timpanogos is stunning! We definitely live in one beautiful part of the country! Glad we found your new spot - hopefully Blogger won't put your comments in our spam folder from now out (we never quite got that...)!

  29. That's an interesting vest - can't wait to hear more about it!

    Gosh - that ranch sure looks fun and that baby horsie - adorable! Also, glad that momma horse did not do any damage to your rear area. Although it's a funny story to hear, it probably isn't too pleasant to experience.

  30. Mom needs her daily horse fix to keep going. The foals are always so cute!


  31. Hey Bert!

    Beautiful photos and yes, what a view to wake up to. You and your friends are really good. And that vest, all that's missing is a hard hat! :)

    Penny's human,

    Gary :)

  32. Nice visit at the ranch, you lucky dog! All that open space to run around and beautiful views...sigh.

    Be sure and let us know how your friend Ryan is and tell him the whole pack says get well soon!

  33. Hey Bert,

    You sure are brave saying hi to the horses, they're big! And of course beautiful, just like the mountain views, you've still got snow too, wow!

    I'm very intrigued by the new vests!

    Your pal Snoopy :)

    PS - Love your new site and name! :)

  34. Horses! Oh, I just love horses! They come to our park sometimes, for rodeos and stuff. I just love seeing them!
    Cool vest, Bert. Are you going to tell us more about it?
    Play bows,

  35. What a great way to spend the day, glad you had the chance!

  36. Don't tell anyone... especially since we live in Horse Country - Kentucky... but our mom isn't very fond of horses... they are just too big and powerful for her.

    But you are mighty brave.. and the baby looks adorable.. :)

    Shelle, Milo, Dixie and Newby,

  37. Omigoodness, Bert. That horse's head is nearly as big as your body. You be careful when you visit those pretty creatures.

  38. Hi Bert!

    Oh my gosh, I just found your new site AND I was looking through my spam folder and found a bunch of comments from you there. Not sure why they went to spam. I am so sorry I haven't been visiting lately. Your new site looks great!

    Your pal, Pip

  39. We are definitely wishing Ryan well. Please send our good wishes.

    What a day at the ranch! No, Bert, that is not going to happen - but you shouldn't sound so eager :) The ranch looks glorious, with the mountains, the foals, and the mother horses. Wow!

  40. We send White Dog positive thoughts to Ryan and hope that he is having a good week. Your friends have a lovely ranch and the baby white foal is such a cutie!

  41. Beautiful ranch you got to visit Bert! Such a darling foal :)
    My Mom grew up on a ranch with horses and cows and pigs and geese and... It's still in the family. Every once in a while she gets to go back there. Such happy memories your ranch trip brought back :)

    That new coat looks and sounds interesting. Can't wait to hear more about it!

    Waggin at ya,

  42. Oh Bert, you made my mom's day with those horses :) She is practically obsessed over horses! And you and Goose look very nice in that fancy vest!

  43. Hi my sweet friend,
    Just wanted to let you know that Mommy did put up a new post this morning around 8:30ish. So you may want to check back in with us. the story is a real doozy!

    Shelle, Milo, Dixie and Newby,
