WE finally got out....

Hi everyone, My Vickie here.
It seems the only time I can
post is when I am at my mothers.
So I am taking advantage
of  this "While she is sleeping"
to let you know how we are doing.
We are still keeping up with everyone
from the computer at home, but our
Internet service is very slow
and making comments is an almost
impossible thing to do until after
midnight and as much as I love
you all, my bedtime is way before that.
I did finally get a chance to take Bert up
into our mountains last night and we had
a wonderful time. 
Of course there was swimming.  All the
swimming Bert could handle.  At least
until the moose moved in for a
late afternoon watering.  Then Bert
had to give up his swimming hole.

It may not appear so in the picture
above, but this was "one Huge Moose"
probably the biggest one I have seen
this summer and I have seen some big ones.
Even the guy in Alaska was not
as big as this one.  Even Bert was
watchful when this one came down
to our lake.   Normally Bert is
pretty un-aware of his surroundings
when he is swimming, but this
guy had us both a little on edge.

My boy showed his golden hue
just as the sun was going by.
And no, this is no where near the
quality of my friend KB's photos
 but it was fun to take.
As the sun disappeared over the mountain
Bert and I took one last look at our
giant, then headed back home. 


  1. We wanna see a Moose!

    Glad you're out and about and enjoying the summer. Hope the internet gets sorted.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  2. Wow - that is one huge moose! We love your Golden hue photo, Bert, and we also love your header photo!

    Mitch and Molly

  3. We agree that KB's photos are pretty amazing, but yours are great too! Thanks for sharing Bert's fun times with us!


  4. I never saw a moose for real, only my mom in her "you-look-like-a-dead-moose-jacket". That must be great to meet one. Maybe you can get a new internet-connection via satellite? Have a fabulous Friday dear Bert

  5. Hi Vickie & Bert!
    I'm so glad to hear from you,how dare you say your sleep is more impawtant than your blogger furiends! Sheesh! Ha,Ha,Ha,Ha!
    Well it looks like you have been having a great time and its so nice to see that you and Bert enjoyed it up in your mountains, it looks like such a beautiful place and clearly Bert loves to swim, I have been swimming in the lake in the woodland walk (did you see the photos on my blog?) it was so warm that I had to cool my furs off and I swam for about a half hour! 
    That is one Huge Moose indeed, oh boy is he big and beutiful, was he scared of you??
    I have never seen a real life Moose before, Mum has but I have NEVER!
    Wonderful photos, loves the one of Bert showeing his beautiful golden hue, thats a great photo, he looks so royal and dramatic, very, very handsome!!!
    Love licks and hugs from your furiend Frank xxxxxxxx

    Have a great weekend!


  8. THAT is a MAJOR MOOSE... like BULLWINKLE on Steroids!!

    We are so glad to see you. We miss you somethingy FIERCE We WISH that your intermutts thingy would UNDERSTAND that Blogville Misses BERT (and even Allred) and get their act Speeded up.

  9. He must of been a grand daddy moose - he sure looks big to us. We are so happy you got some splashy fun in

  10. Great hearing from you. He does look like the "bull of the woods" Continue to do well.

    love you

  14. We are so happy to see Bert and hear that you both got out for some fun. That moose is one big guy. Mom always remembers the day a big buck came out of the brush just as we were trying to go over the bridge. He was just a couple of feet from us. He was as surprised as we were, and it all happened way too fast for a photo op.

    Happy weekend.

  15. Howdy Bert and Vickie, good to see ya mates. Gee that moose is huge and we would love to see him in real life. What a beautiful creature he is. So majestic. We love your photo of Bert in the sunshine. He could hide in that golden grass! Take care. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  16. Now thats one big pupper!

  17. It's so good to see a post from you!! KB does take amazing photos, but yours are just as stunning--I don't know who is more handsome, Bert or the moose--I think it's a tie, but I'm leaning towards Bert!!! :-) Take care!!!

  18. What a moose! Great photo of him in daylight. Wow.

    And your photo of Bert is a classic beauty - way better than my photos, for sure! I hope that you put it up on your wall... I love the light in it and the handsome golden Bert.

  19. Oh, I hates it when the intermutts are slow!! It can be VERY frustrating (that's what Ma says anyhu).
