You can tell the holiday season is getting closer. Our neighbor, Cataloochee Ski, was really hopping. As we were out for our morning walk, we enjoyed watching the skiers having fun:
And when we got back from our walk, we really enjoyed reading the guesses of who was who in yesterday’s contest. Our humans laugh, because the only view of us they have when we are out hiking is this, so it pretty easy for them to know who is who from this angle:
So thanks for all of your great guesses. Here are the official answers:
Congratulations to everyone who guessed correctly (and to those who didn’t, but played and had fun anyway). Maybe next time we should do noses. We could call it “Pick The Herd’s Noses.” What do you think?

What Weather When?
March 26, 2023
How do you dress for a day in the Western North Carolina Mountains? Just answer what weather when? Good luck with that.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
Undercarriage Dog Wash
Q-tip loves hanging out in the yard, particularly on a rainy, muddy day like Sunday—even if it does mean he needs an undercarriage dog wash.
I think “Guess the Noses” would be harder than guess the rear views.
I’m bummed that I missed out on the game, but I got Rusty and Cheoah mixed up anyway. 🙂
My human and I were discussing your lack of snow problem. Maybe if you learned to ski they would let you go play in their snow…
hey, why not? It would be an end-to end guessing game!
a-roos to yous,’jack a-roo
Drat – missed the guessing game!!! Love the ski pix – my momma and daddy wish they were there heheeh! We died laughing over your funny commenting on our latest post – you are very punny pups!!!
I am going to have to commit these views to memory for the next quiz. I bet I’ll look funny studying with flash cards…
Haha I love love love the contest! and feel quite honored to be apart of this event. Mom laughed about the noodleloons.. So tell me.. are they jodhpurs or pantyloons? My favorite herd tail feathers.. the cockadoodloons..rusty the rooster gets my vote.
Neat view of the ski hill.
We guessed them right but we think picking might be a lot more difficult (and messy). Nice to see the ski business kicking in down there.
Woos, TD and Phantom
Well, I didn’t get them all right. But that’s okay.
Dang! We missed da contest! Oh well! Maw was laughin’ at dem pics. She quotes, “If’n woo ain’t da lead dog, da scenery doesn’t change.” What she mean by dat?
We got it! Yay, because we hardly ever get anything like this and would NEVER get noses, ever.
So, whats the prize? Its a contest, must be a prize, right?

Dang, I got only two… It must have been hysterical to you to hear our funny guesses.
My first two dogs were littermates and almost identical twins. One day, I switched their red and blue collars. My husband spent the first half of our hike flummoxed by the lack of response by each individual dog to his name. Then, it dawned on him… I’ve been laughing about it for 20 years!
Funny thing was, if you closed your eyes and stroked their ears, you could absolutely tell them apart every single time. Their ear silkiness was very different.
I only got Kodiak and Rusty mixed up! I thought Rusty was the darker one lol, but now I know better. I’d say I did pretty good. 🙂 Yep, let’s do noses. Since I have a heads up I’ll start studying them now. 😉
OMDog, can we pick your noses?
I pick Loki’s eye boogers every day. He’ll only let me do it if he gets to eat them though. if he sees the kleenex, he goes running. sick sick sick dog. you want him?

OMDog, You live my a ski hill? No way! You must get tons of snow! I am so jealous. Maybe send a little over here to me?…
Are we talking boogers?
Darn it!! I missed the game! And, what a fun one it looks like it was! Love the butt shots! Those are funny!
