As we have explained before, we live beside Cataloochee Ranch, a thousand acre ranch with lots of horses. Many visitors to the area will rent horses from the ranch and go on guided rides through the ranch, the neighboring properties, or into the Great Smoky Mountain National Park (a somewhat large neighbor of ours). Thus, when we are out for walks, it is very common to pass some of these “big dogs.”
One of the ranch hands was one who saw us a few months ago when The Herd got Out Herded – and she remembered it.

Requiem for a Rabbit
May 21, 2023
A poor bunny made a bad decision, so I wanted to pay my respects with a requiem for a rabbit. My dogs plotted their own event.

Missed A Rabbit By A Hare
In a fumble of Sibe Quentin security, Typhoon almost caught another rabbit, though Hu-Dad has kidded him that he missed it by a hare.
oh wow! Make sure to be extra careful around those 🙂
Don’t forget, we moved to http://dogisgodinreverse.com/
Best to stay clear of big dogs. They have hard feet.
Oh yes, we’ve worked plenty on not getting too excited on those big dogs out here in CO! But sometimes, a little doggie just can’t help it!
When I was a pup, dad held me in his lap while he rode one of those dogs…they smelled funny and I fell asleep from the rocking stride!
That’s really cool! I live wif a small pony myself.
I mean… have you SEEN the Bleu???
I rest my case.

Wow, those are some really big dogs! Did they want to play?
Love the body language! As for the comment you left me today, “you never leave pee mail on human legs”, yeah right!
I love watching horses, but don’t really know enough about them to get near them, but they sure are beautiful.
They are mighty big dogs! They don’t smell like digs but they do smell good!
I saw big dogs like that at the rodeo!
I bet they would be SO much fun to zoom with too!
Now we know that huskies are the perfect sized dog. You guys wouldnt want a human to ride on you, its bad enough you have to pull them on their sleds and digglers.
Poor big dogs, we hope their backs dont get sore.

I wish I lived near some big dogs! I think I would have fun sniffing them!
Cool article! 🙂
We had NO idea that we live in a neighbor state to you guys!!!
Woofs and Kisses!

No surprise to us that you all are headliners!!! We only wish we could walk behind you in that walk for such a good cause.
Those big dogs are beautiful.

I grew up with some of those big dogs! I have a feeling that The Herd could be a lot more fun to go for a walk with, though.
Very cool article about you leading the charge. I hope you at least got enough money in to get the t-shirt!
Woos herd! Those are some big doggies woo live by. Is Rusty still jingling? I took my jingle bell off and “lost” it. Mom was using it to scare away the birds and squirrels, I have my own methods.

hey t-herd, funnie they don’t seem to mind 6 sibes staring at them! i would:)
My Momma luvs the big dogs it is part of the reason she wants to emi-great as she knows she can gets a job with the big dogs
We’ve got five of those big dogs too! We have yet to show Monty them, we just think it would be too much for the boy!
Must be fun to live next to ‘big dogs’!
Horse dogs are the best! Mom has six of them at home. One of them is a bit mischievous but we get along well. I put my paws in their water buckets (great cooling system!) and sleep on their hay!
These guys look very healthy and I’m happy you have them under control! 😀
