P.S. – Daily rain like we get in June is great for making things grow – sometimes a little too well. Many people do not realize how much precipitation this area receives. Some of the southern facing slopes in Haywood (our county) and Transylvania (our neighbor) Counties receive over 100 inches (254 cm) of rain a year. Daily rain this time of year is just a fact of life. The alternative – wildfires – is simply not what we want.

Weekly thoughts from our Hu-Dad with the latest updates on his writing projects, the books he's reading, and a gratuitous dog photo of us.
A Walk on the Trashy Side
June 4, 2023
Maybe my neighbors didn’t notice, but I took a walk on the trashy side last week and need to confess my mistake.
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.
Chasing Sun – The Struggle Is Real
We try every day to let you know how tough the life of a working breed dog is, so today we share the struggle of chasing sun.
With tall grass, you can pretend that you are lions, out on the savanna, stalking some prey. I hope the squirrels and rabbits are watching out for you!
You guys live near Transylvania?!?! How cool is that! Any vampire sightings?
My dad needs to cute our grass to.
That’s a lot of rain. We’re ecstatic if we get 100mm! Maybe you should offer the hu-dad a Happy Hearts cookie if he cuts the grass? Humans usually respond well to treats.
But if the huDad has to cut the grass, that is that much less time for hiking.
We’re just saying.

WOO WOO Thundering Herd,
We think we get as much rain as you do! We got dumped on again this morning! Our regular path was under the water of Four Mile Creek! Don’t you love running in the tall grass?

Princess RainKhloud would be able to sponge up khwite a lot of pawesome wetness!
Oh how it’s been too long – so sorry – it’s been a bit wacky over here. Such beautiful greens (and from yesterday – colors!) in June there! Please, if you could, we’d like to order about a week’s worth of your rain. In exchange, we’ll send you some of our windy 90 degree weather that threatens the hills with fires this weekend ugh! Sooooo nice to see your lovely country! With sibes included (they make the land even more beautiful!
Sammie and the pack here
Today we celebrate UNITY in DIVERSITY with Maxmom and with all of the wonderful dog-blogs that have taken the spirit of the World Cup and made it MORE – made it an exercise in understanding, tolerance and community.

WOWZA! When you guys blow your coat you really mean business, don’t you☺
That IS some might tall grass you got there!!

The Fiesty Three
I am just going to say right now that I think I’m relieved that The Herd doesn’t live in Transylvania! That could make for some interesting Halloween posts.
Good heaven! Forget the mower! What you need is a hay baler!
Thanks for the code!
Ummm, I hate to mention this but I think that the Herd requested that grass-cutting at least a week ago. Methinks the human isn’t being very responsive to the oh-so-reasonable requests of the Herd 🙂
I agree – I choose rain over fire any day… except when the rain is pelting me as I ride my bike. Then, I have brief moments of cursing it.
That is a LOT of rain! You are right, I didn’t realize your area got rain nearly every day this time of year. That must make great puddles for splashing!
AHH! It didn’t work! darn.
Thanks for the code – you’re the best!
