Everything’s a Game

When you are Rusty the Rooster, everything you ever run into can be turned into a game. Even if it is just erosion control fence cloth stretched out by a gravel road.

Hmm - this ground feels funny to the paws.

    Rusty you are my most favored Herd pup just because you are so much fun.

    However, it is my wish, before I die, to get a Kodi-hug to send me on my way (and it might from the description!).

    Kisses,
    Stella

    Tail up and ready to play, we see! Well, we’d like to play too, but we just have to make do with ears up! is that stuff softer on the feet, Rusty?

    Maybe Rusty and Wilbur are related. A couple weekends ago, Mom and Dad were painting the living room and Wilbur went crazy running around on the plastic drop cloth.

    Hi guys – sorry I haven’t visited in so long!! My stupid human has been madly busy the last few weeks making lots of Dead Lines and so hasn’t had any time to help me with my blog or visiting friends – humph!

    Anyway, I have enjoyed catchign up on your posts – and especially reading about your names! I had a real laught at Cheoah’s story and I’ve always liked the fact that you kept Quannik’s name in essence but changed it to something more ‘suited’ to a boy! πŸ˜‰

    Slobbers,

    “Hmmm… Do I see if I can rip it up, scaring the daylights out of the rest of The Herd or do I try to roll on it and see if I can drag the Hu-Dad down…”
