Radio Control Retriever

Mom:  Ready Barkley?

Preflight - Complete!

Before Start - Check!

My Hovercraft is full of eels! - Check!

(If Barkley could talk) - Moje vznášedlo je plné úhořů !
When you have a Labrador Retriever in the family you soon learn, that not only are your toys "his" toys but the urge to retrieve is hardwired into him.   It was a Friday.  I'd been on the road, and was happy to be home from travels safely with a new toy and a black lab always happy to play air traffic controller  (Watch that landing Mom  - Bouncy Bouncy!) 

I took the little RC helicopter down to play in the walk out basement Barkley following me down, wanting to be part of the fun,,

Remember what I said about the "retrieving part?'

"Great Leapin Labrador Retrievers.  Climb Captain CLIMB!!"


  1. Ah, yes, the joys of Barkley. :) We can so identify, of course. :)

  2. Oops... Hope it was a cheap one... Tooth marks in the rotors kinda upset the balance...

  3. And to Barkley I would reply..."Na množství nehleďte!"
