Meet My Cabinet: Goose


Today we are featuring 
Chaplain Goose from Gospel of Goose

1. Please introduce yourself(selves), tell us your age and a very special trait. 
They call me Goose and I am 13 years old.  My special treat...hummm I guess MOM's homemade salmon jerky.  Huh?  Oh trait.  I guess my special trait is that I can figure things out pretty quickly.  You know how to open a gate, figure out those dog puzzles in seconds, and how to catch fish.


2. If you had and alter ego, who would you like to be and why
I like being me.  Oh sure I admire Bert and his ability to do search and rescue, but really what would this world be with two Bert's and no Goose. 

3. What do you like best/least about where you live
The best part about where I live is that my MOM lives here and we have the most beautiful mountains to explore.  Least, well it's not worth mentioning.

4. Who are some peeps/furiends you'd like to meet and why
Oooo there are a few.  But the first that came to my mind is Lilly and Buddy.  They live in Georgia and we are friends and our mom's are friends but we have never met in the furs and I would really like too.  

5. If you could give one piece of random advice what would it be?
That no matter who you are, what you look like, where you live, or where you come from, you are beautiful.  You were created beautiful and don't let anyone, ANYONE, tell you otherwise.  Also don't lick a toad.

6. What do you do for fun
What DON'T I do for fun.  Life is an adventure and is to be lived and enjoyed and shared.  So no matter what I do it is fun.  But my favorite thing is backpacking with my MOM and fishing.

7. What is the first thing you do each morning
Open my eyes, otherwise I would fall out of bed and hit my head.  Then I get a hug from MOM and then I pee., then I eat a strawberry or raspberry.

8. What is the first thing you notice about a new furiend
Their smile.  Or if the other end is facing me the wag of a tail.

9. Tell us how you came to live in your family and how you got your name.
That's a long story so I will try and give you the cliff notes.  MOM went into a pet place for rocks for her Gecko Lizards, a rescue group was there and I was with them.  She saw me, I saw her.  She took me for a walk because the rescue lady shoved my leash in MOM's hand.  She called a friend and said, "Do you think it is time?"  (Note that is ALL she said).  Her friend said, "Yes it is time you had another dog in your life."  She went back and said "OK I'll take him."  But then the rescue lady said I was $600.  Which MOM handed the leash back and said, "Oh I can't afford that."  The lady talked with MOM a while about her Heart Dog, Pete, who went to the rainbow Bridge and they talked about the rescue place and other stuff.  Then as MOM started to walk away the lady put my leash back in MOM's hand and said, "Here he is yours.  He belongs to you and I know you two will be very happy together.  There will be no fee."  MOM walked out of the pet place with me and forgot to buy the rocks for the lizards.  I came with the name Goose.  Actually my full name is Sir King Goose III.  But MOM soon found out that I liked to Goose her in the butt. So Goose was the perfect name. hahhaha

10. What is your absolute favorite food
Anything eatable.  But I guess absolute favorite is whatever MOM is cooking, except beets.  YUK!  OK I have to say I have never had a beet but whenever beets are mentioned my MOM says "YUK"

BONUS Question:  Goose we all know you are a stick aficionado...please tell us the very best place to find sticks and what qualities you look for when hunting for one?
STICKS!!!!! Oh I love them.  Big ones, small ones, fat, skinny, with or without bark, dry or wet, brown or green, with or without leaves.  Really there is no such thing as a bad stick.  However!  I love love love sticks that are stuck in the water, or floating down a river.  The extra moister makes them all the better.  And the great thing about sticks is you can find them anywhere.  But you know the coolest place to find a stick.... a Beaver dam.  It's like hitting the mother lode.
Goose has never met a stick he doesn't like....and no stick is too large or too small.  Thanks Goose and Mom for pawticipating in Meet My Cabinet.

  18. OMD What a Splendid job Goose did with his interview. I had NEVER heard how he came to live with his mom. What s grand story THAT is.

    PEE S... to add to my growing list of troubles with WildBlue... Last night at 9:30.. I sent One Email... and Went to send a Second... and POOF.. I called THEM..AGAIN and they say they are having some ISSUES with Wildblue.net Email and that it MAY take up to 72 hours for them to get it running again... I know that I have one email from Puddles... butt can't answer it. I gotta get a better system going here!!!
    NO EMAIL stinks worse than a Squirrel Butt.

  20. Oh Madi thank you for doing this interview with our friend goose, we love hearing the story about how he came to live with his mom, we think that the rescue lady was really an angel just waiting to hand that leash over to michelle. We also know he likes sticks alot, but loves his momma even more.

  26. What a great interview with Goose. We just love him. That is some sound advice about not licking toads. I will have to remember that!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wait! Goose is 13???!!!! I thought he was like 3. Wow! I guess it must be all that stick deathing and hiking and no-beet-eating he does. I think I need to take up more stick deathing in the future. And stay away from beets.

    Also, I liked the part about being beautiful and not licking toads. Most Wise.
