Rain, Rain, Go Away.... Bikes, Baskits, Blooms, and a Fond Farewell to Goose

Well, as Whitley has been tellin' ya, we has had our fill of da rain. And then sum. But dere are no end in sight... rain is predickted fur da next week or year or sumthin'.... sigh.

Has I told y'all how I hates a wet canvas? I hates a swampy one more. Ya would think we's livin' in da Everglades or sumthin' instead of da Blackland prayeree.

Momma ordered a new bike fur herself and one fur Whit's Momma, too. Now I ain't too fonda humans on wheels-- just kinda wrong, ya know?

Momma's been sick wiff a coughin' thang dat Daddy gave her. Let's jest say he is still workin' his way outta da doghaus fur dat one! But she are feelin' a lil bit better dis week. (Sunday she felt terribull)... so yesterday she put together their bikes. She were real proud of herself when she got it done and they tested them out by ridin' dem up and down da block. Here they are, in da sunroom...



Me and Whitley barked 'em from da kitchen window....

I might make an excepshun fur dese bikes... cuz Momma tole me dey isn't jest fur her and Whit's momma....

See, she gots sum baskits dat go on da front dat is made fur takin' pups on a ride wiff der folkses. Momma is gonna make baskit liners and pillows fur us to sit on while we ride. And harnesses to make sure we stays in da baskits...bol!



So I's got anudder reezun to hope it stops rainin' sumtime in da forseeabull future. I wants my ride. I wants to be showfurred 'round da nayborhood like da princess I is. I decided to try out da baskit and see whut it wuz like to sit in... purdy gud!



And you knows Whitley. Any chance she gits to ride rather than walk.... well, she'll be all fur dat!

I agreed to let Momma show ya a few more of da flowerz dey've been havin' bloomin' 'round here...


















And last, but certainly not least.... we lost a real gud pal to da Rainbow Bridge dis week.... Goose.

I started my blog back in 2011... but kinda got outta da habit of bloggin' fur a while. Anyways, one of da furstest blogs we found was Goose's. We luved all da wisdom we found dere, and how he and his Momma had such a joy and appreesheayshun fur life and all it offers... plus, his Momma takes real gud photos... we felt we were right dere wiff 'em...When we came back to bloggin' last year, Goose's blog was one of da furstest we commenced to readin' agin... 

We sure will miss ya, Goose... and we sends yer Momma lots of love and prayers fur peace... Ev'ry time I looks at my BadAss dat ya sent me, I'll think of you and smile....

Luv ya, Goose.... furevfur and always......




Bark ya later, gators....

  4. Message from Gail to the Mom's: You may be needing those harnesses, if Whitley and Finley react anything like Bertie did the one time I tried giving him a ride in a bicycle basket. (There is a reason he's called 'Bouncing Bertie'….)

  15. My human has a bike just like that (except her's is red)... She doesn't think I'm and "in a basket" kind of dog... For some reason (I can't work out why) she thinks that I'd be out and chasing the first dog we peddled past!

  18. Finley you got a paisley bike, why I have never seen a paisley bike. You are sitting in the basket so nice, you look like you have a question on your face. Well just wait till that bike starts moving for real with the wind in your furs that question of what am I doing here might get bigger and bigger. The iris that is snow white with the sky blue is gorgeous, they all are but that one is my favorite.
    Thanks for being a friend
