All guns blazing for the Valentine Party

It has been a stressful week chez Bouncing Bertie.

Well, OK, buying flowers for my Valentine date Addy was easy enough.

But oh the problems I've been having over transport.

I just knew in my heart of hearts that my attempts to deploy a so-called 'Magic' Carpet to take Addy to the Valentine Party would not go well.  I fear that for a carpet to fly, an ability to suspend disbelief is required, and that is not a strong point in this household.  And then, worse, it dawned on me that my 'in case the magic fails' calculations for the solar panel additions had not allowed for the near total absence of sunlight in February in Northern Scotland...

Well, it turns out that every cloud - and we have many in Scotland - has a silver lining. I am delighted to tell you that Addy, being a spirited lass, was quite content to ditch the carpet, and thrilled to bits when she saw my back up transport plan.
(Thanks to Addy's Mom for the composite picture)

What a girl! Oh isn't it wonderful when you find a partner who is not only beautiful, in a unique and distinctive fashion, but is also a soul-mate. Do we not look the perfect couple?
(Thanks again Addy's Mom)

So here we are, finally on our way to the Blogville Valentine Party. It's going to be a blast....

P.S. Don't forget to visit Addy's blog later today to find out what happens next...


  1. Don't blame you at all for proceeding to the back up plan!! That will be a bullet-proof arrival!!! Have a great time!!

  7. Well Bertie, we Aunties did vote for the tank!
    You two make a lovely couple we must say and we are sure your date will go with a blast....!
    True love will show itself when you guys are down to your last bonio........will you let Addy have it, will you share or will you revert to your normal canine behaviour and fight for it!
    We liked the idea of a magic carpet and cannot see why there should be any problems - we have seen many a carpet fly.

    Wow, that's one creative transport fur sure! I think you might have blown up the Rin Tin Tin statue in Blogville Park! Please watch where you point that crazy thing. Anyway, you and Addy look like you're have a blast (get it?!) together and I sure hope you don't blow up any buildings.
    Happy Valentine's Day!

  17. hey Bertie,

    Pawsome! How cool that Addy was up for the tank! She is quite a catch! You two are the perfect couple, and look absolutely lovely together! Have a blast at the pawty!


  18. Bertie, we wanted you to know that we voted for you in the Adventure Animals category of MM. We find you extremely adventurous!

    -Bart and Ruby

  19. Good job on the transport, which as we recall is what Addy wanted all along. You do indeed make a handsome couple. We have one bone to pick, however: in the American flag, the stars part goes next to the flagpole. You have our flag reversed. Being as you are such good allies, you are forgiven.

    What's with your new security word system? It now has two words, and one of them is blotchy ink over a big ink blot. Mama can't see it. We know she's old, but a lot of your fans have elderly assistants. If we have to repeat type in three times, you're getting a shirty email.
