Monty doings...

Sam is resting up for his advanced beginners agility class tonight....

So I thought I would give you an update on how our boy Monty is doing!  I realize it's been a while since he has been in a post.   Monty, as you can see in the photos below, has taken up the rather entertaining sport of "Dad Wrestling"....

It starts out innocently enough.  A few paw grabs, a few licks, and then before you know it....'s an all out wrestling match!  I'm not sure which paw is which in this picture!
After a few horrifying moments, our combatants are left exhausted!
Monty usually recovers enough after one of these fearsome wrestling matches to help me on my latest project.  I am trying to make a denim quilt (trying....) and Monty is fascinated by the scraps!

I has a hat!
Wait a minute!
No worries!  Monty doesn't mind as long as he gets something out if it too.  He's found out that the left over blue jean denim makes a nice toy!
Oh yeah!
...and Sam just hopes I can keep Monty busy enough that he can get the sleep he needs!

I need my rest!


  1. Looks like Monty won the wrestling match to me!

  2. Ha! It looks like we have the same funiture! Good taste! That picture of Monty in the hat is hilarious!!

  3. We love to wrestle but we usually do it with each other. Mom makes us "take it outside".

    Monty, we can't believe you let her do that to you with that silly hat:)

    Monty, come on over - I'm demonstrating a smackdown neck hold today! wrestling is the bestest!

    About that scarf... not sure denim is really "your color", best leave it for mom's quilt. Just sayin'...

  6. Monty I like your style.
    I wrested with MOM this morning. And I may have punched her in the jaw. OK I did do it. I didn't mean too. But I knocked her back tooth lose and cut her lip. I felt terrible. But I guess MOM isn't mad cuz she is taking me on a hike in a half hour.

  7. Well Monty is proving his versatility, wrestler and then a more quite activity, watching his Mom quilt.
    Don't tell Monty but in the one photo with the denim around his head he looks like all he needs is a covered wagon....bol

  8. Hi Monty,
    Is that the latest fashion trend that you have on you head?

  9. Hey, Dad (Aaron the wrestler).

    Once upon a time long, long ago, in a galaxy far, far away there was
    a boy who would wrestle his dad. Sometimes when he sneaked into the bedroom, early on a Sunday morning, sometimes on the floor in the living room, lotsa time on the couch just as you and Monty but you were always the winner.


  10. Dad wrestling looks like great fun!!! Usually I only wrestle with my mom! Love Monty's fashion sense!

  11. Goldens are SOOOOO easily entertained ;-)


  12. We love dad wrestling - particularly when we gang up on him and he is outnumbered.

  13. I wrestle with my dad all the time too! It's fun!

  14. We have a bunch of that wrestling with Dad stuff going on over here too!! Glad to see you guys! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

  15. LOL, your dad looks so funny, and he really enjoy your cuddling times together, I saw your sparkling eyes Woof!

    I like wrestling with my Dad too.
    But I'm too big for the couch.

  20. Good luck with the quilt! If you need any help, give our mom a shout; she'd be more than happy to help!
    Monty, that first picture of you makes it look like your head is on your dad's body! Ha woooo!
    I like your hat... maybe that just me.

  21. Monty you have some excellent wresting techniques. With your head gear you could definitely start a new fashion trend.
    Good Luck to Sam in his new class.

  22. Monty is a VERY busy boy, makes for a tired boy, which means a good boy, right?

    Sam, thank goodness your humans keep Monty entertained!

  23. Monty you have some excellent moves there! We must try them out on our staff.

  24. Well, I'm pretty sure that Monty won. Go Monty!!! I gotta say that Monty looked awfully cute in that hat. Sam sweetie, get your rest!

  25. Wow! Wrestling on the sofa looks like FUN!
