Why, of course, we had visitors.  Unfortunately, despite all of the comments, Holly did not come and visit us.  We did get a very gracious email from Holly yesterday and thank her for that.


After breakfast Sunday morning, Karen Ramstead and several others stopped by to say hello and The Herd was really pleased to get all of the attention.  Cheoah, called the “I Wanna” Dog because she is a master at asking for something, is seen in this first picture doing her patented paw scratch and getting Karen to pay attention to her.  Rusty laughs as he is getting scratches and Kiska is getting attention from Peg Moore in the foreground.


Cheoah, of course, is rewarded with lots of special attention:


Rusty, however, is looking less than pleased that his scratches stopped.


Hope everyone enjoyed their visit.

    Wow, I can’t believe you got a personal visit from THE Karen Ramstead! I always knew the Herd was famous and special, but I didn’t quite know how far-reaching your fame really is!

    Perhaps rusty need to perfect his puppy dog eyes impression to keep the scratches coming!

    Woooo! VIPs visiting the SRV. Did you talk them into visiting you in your Maggie Valley home?


  13. Kira on June 2, 2009 at 8:56 am

    Wooo! at least you had some nice visitors who gave you scratches. Nice. Did you get to come out of those crates anytime? I only tolerate mine for a couple of hours in the day, then the whining starts…
