Run Like I Have Wings

CYNDI:  I don't think it's fair.  You dogs get to walk Jan so you have some excitement in your lives.

MICAH:  Yeah, we get everything second hand.  Why doesn't Jan get a stroller and take us cats with you?

PERCY:  We long for the day when we can see everything for ourselves instead of just hearing about things afterward.

MARCUS:  Hey, that's a good idea.  I'm brave so I could be your bodyguard. I was attacked by that bird dog last spring and a Basset Hound has been coming after me for weeks trying to pick a fight, so, for sure, I'd have your back.

RUSTY:  Oh, we forgot about things like that.  Perhaps we should be thankful we don't have to leave the house, after all.

BUDDY:  We have seen geese a good bit on our walks, but either Jan forgot her camera or by the time she gets it out, they have marched off and they're so tiny we can't tell they're in the picture.

MERCI:  We saw a whole bunch recently but when Jan got her camera out, most of them had disappeared over the hill and these were all that were left we could see.

SAM:  Jan had to zoom in and crop them in the picture, but here you have photographic proof we dogs almost had a goose snack.

CYNDI:  Sam, you know you are thankful the geese went the other way.  What would you have done if they had come toward you?

SAM: I would have run like I have wings!  Those geese are quite intimidating.

BUDDY:  I haven't quite figured out what they're saying yet, but I think it's something like, "Woofer alert!  All females and adolescents retire quietly while the rest of us honk threats."

MARCUS:  Oh, so that's what they're saying.  I always thought they were inviting me to join them.  I yell, "Wait for me, wait for me", but they just waddle faster.

  1. Those geese can be nasty, and not only do they threaten they attack! Ask how it is we know this...BOL/MOL!

    Once a big goose stole a cookie right out of our then wee unfurbro the elder's hand, whilst he ws in his stroller...sheesh... good thing they didn't steal his fingers too...he became a piano least whie he was in school...but now he is a computer programmer...hey he still needs his fingers!

  2. My human has always wanted to get a pair of geese as watchdogs - but since we live in a neighborhood with coyotes, I doubt they would last long! They are mean, but not THAT tough!

    My uncle always used to say the geese were better guard critters than his sheepdogs on the farm!!! Hugs and honks, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. I was brought up on a farm with geese. They made a dreadful noise and used to chase us! But, like people have said, they were very good guard "dogs". Anyway, you cool cats stay within the boundaries of the house - it's safer that way!

  5. WE wonder if geese would keep SQUIRRELS and VACULA away????

  6. That is a cool picture of those geese, we have a lot that fly overhead as we live very close to the river, and many lakes....stella rose

  7. I ate gooses poop once. Although tasty, I do not recommend it

  8. Well, we have never had geese but do have some Mallard mixed ducks. They are very "flighty", especially when some certain canines want to play tag.

  9. Geese are fun to watch. They always seem to be having a discussion about something. Watch out though because they will "goose" you. :) It sounds like you have some fun walks.

  10. Geese are a bit too big for me!! And very noisy!!

  11. Mom bean says we has lots of geese around here but they can be furry mean. So we is glad we they don't come to our house!

  12. Run like you have wings? Would that make you a chicken?


  13. We guess it's all in the interpretation, huh? We've always thought that honking meant something along the lines of, "you stay over there!" :)


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
