Adventure Animal credentials take a knock?

Look it's REALLY SCARY when your human takes you on some supposedly gentle walk in the woods and all of a sudden you are faced with a scramble down into a gorge via a slippery and precipitous rock face.

As happened earlier today at Burn O'Vat.

Friends, I am sure you will still vote for me in the Adventure Animals category of the great  Mango Minster competition tomorrow.

Won't you?



  1. That doesn't look like a stroll in the woods to me, Bertie!! Very kind of you to help Gail down, though!

  2. HOLY GWALK A MOLEY BERT..... that would scare the poops outta ME!

  3. I could barely get myself down that, let alone one of our boys! Wow!


  4. Bertie you are a brave adventurer. You've even brought your sherpa with you!! Don't forget who the cutest girl is!!


  5. That gorge does look scary. We're glad you're helping Gail get down it safely...BOL!!!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  6. That is too scary! Good luck in the competition!

  7. I think I already promised Ludo I would vote for him as most adventurous. Maybe try it again next year, practice up some or go for another category. Cutest maybe.



  8. Bernie,

    As you know, we live in flatland USA, so we can't begin to grasp how scary that topography must have been -- but we are with you all the way!WFT to WFT!

    And please tell Gail we love her adventurous spirit -- but we is who we is!

    Wirey love,

    Jake and Just Harry

  9. Yikes! Your walks are certainly thrilling turns of adventure. Makes our strolls in the park seem quite dull in comparison.

  10. Oh that looks so scary. Think I'd rather stay home! :o)

  11. Are you kidding? That was a major adventure ride and you sat calmly on Gail's lap and let her carry you down the rough, hard rocks without flinching. All you need is a pith helmet and a swagger stick.

  12. Still looks darn adventurous to me mate. I can't get over styles! Deccy x

  13. humans get so nutty at times

  14. Now Bertie going down that slippery sloap could be dangerous, but your tanks and guns ablaze and dust and dirt poem makes me think your dangerous. You might blow up the Valentine Dance! I might have to report you to Sarge and Mayor Frankie. Just saying!!

  15. Oh Bertie you do look worried!! Gail to the rescue.
    I'll go and vote for yea :)
    Have a good week
    See yea George xxx

  16. I'm back ~ we bounced over to the Mango Minster Competition and we winked for you.

  17. Bertie, I am visiting from Jazzis blog and am quite concerned about your poem. Are you bringing guns to the dance? Is Tank green now?? What is going on? I hope to meet you there with my date Remington but just to be safe we will wave from across the room. I am off to the Minster now to investigate your entry.

  18. Wow, that does look kind of scary, but also neat at the same time! And I didn't even realize the voting had started, I better fly right over there.

    Your pal, PIp

  19. hey Bertie,

    Scary indeed! Slippery rock going down is no place for a pooch! Especially one with a tendency to topple. BOL!

    I am glad you and Gail are safely down the rock and home. :->

    I voted for you! Good luck, Bertie! Paws crossed you win!


    p.s. I thought your "Topple" post was pawsome!

  20. Dear Bertie,

    It's OK to be scared when things are objectively dangerous!

    BTW, I absolutely adore your Mango entry!

    Keep on wagging,

    OMD Bertie lad... risk to life and tail!!! Exciting though... Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
