The gift that keeps on giving

Lately I have been worrying about what would happen if, like some other bloggers, I should ever run out of subject matter for my blog.

Gail, I regret to say, has not been taking my concerns seriously. "Will the Daily Express ever be short of stories about Princess Diana? Will conspiracy theorists ever give up on the assassination of JFK?"

Of course, my owner and I are not always of one mind when it comes to deciding which topics readers will want me to cover in my posts.

Gail says I really must tell you about what she calls "the unfortunate incident on the 'A' frame", which took place at the end of the last week's DDAC* training session in Drumforskie barn.

I can't imagine that any of you would be interested but, for the sake of domestic harmony, I have agreed to post Gail's rather poor quality cartoon of what occurred.

  1. Bertie, there is an old saying "a picture tells a thousand words" and it seems the words that Gail left out in her last post are clearly drawn in the cartoon of you..


    PS My human instantly thought of Tin Tin cartoons when she saw Gail's drawing. Bertie, if Gail keeps drawing perhaps one day you there could be a book about you!

  2. Bwahaahaahaa! You showed them what you thought about them telling you how to run that agility course! Well done!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  3. Bertie - A boys got to do what a boys got to do !

  6. Do over mom's iPad got hung up when we were trying to correct spelling

    MOL MOL MOL. It appears heights scare the poop out of you..give me a holler next test I will gladly do the heights for you
    Madi your bfff

    1. Gail says: In fact Bertie wasn't even supposed to be on the 'A' frame at that point. My theory is that he ran up there to find a 'private' place to poo...

  7. Yo were just making it yours! Our Lady use to think she would run out of things to say, but then we always find ways to surprise her. We are sure you won't run out of things. Lee and Phod

  8. WAY to... "GO" Bertie. You did it YOUR WAY.
    So why was Gail making a STINK about it?
    We think you just elevated your Poops to a NEW Level.
    Pawhaps it was already there and your "A" was Framed fur the job. Just sayin.

  9. I bet all the other dogs were running up there to try that after you bertie! Glad you showed the agility folk what you think of that A frame thing!
    Pippa :)
    P.S. Eve seems to think dogs like pooping on hills because that's where I drop my smellies. Maybe it's true!

  10. Bertie you are so funny, did Gail have to clear it up?

  11. Bertie we will never believe you can run out of things to say. You always have Gail to talk about

  12. I recall seeing a high class dog like yourself, taking a dump in front of a judge at a Big Dog Show. Every one was embarrassed except the dog.


  13. Bertie mate, this made us all totally crack up. You are a character and we love ya. We reckon you thought up this little episode just for your mum to blog about. Thanks for the smiles this Sunday morning. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

    BOL - OMD - Have just landed in OZ after a traumatic and very extended journey due to airline "poos", so I badly needed the laugh at your expense - sorry mate, but am glad you went with Gail on this one!!
    Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  15. Oh that is so, so funny! Gail, we want MORE cartoons!!!

  16. Too funny, Bertie. I kind of agree with you on heights! What a great cartoon, more please :-)

  17. OMD, Bertie, did you get extra credit?! Just think of all the EXTRA agility it takes to manuever and balance so pawfectly AND leave poops behind at the same time!

  18. Brilliant cartoon!!!

    Thanks for your Border Collie advice! Oz's parents want him to join an agility club over in Tuscany. They are going to have their hands full with him!

  19. Other great athletes have been caught similarly short...

  20. That was a story well worth reporting and the illustration was brilliant.


  21. Oh NO Bertie, you didn't! Gail's cartoon tells it all and our hooman is laughing like a hyena.
