That Other Herd

Driving on Friday evening, we passed our neighboring Herd of Big Dogs at Cataloochee Ranch.

They are some beautiful big dogs, even if they do smell a little funny.

But we also noticed something else specific about our neighbors.

Some big dogs are preparing their winter coats.

    That is a nice looking herd. 🙂

    Yesterday when we were in Washington DC, I saw a member of that herd, but it had a police officer riding on top of it. What kind of dog would let a person ride it? I barked and barked a message of correction trying to bark some sense into it, but he just kept on walking. Weird.

    Will the humans be plukhking in the spring?

    Ohhhh. I wonder if you’ve got one of those wooly caterpillars there (like I found today). Maybe those horses know all about weather predictions too!

    You keep an eye on that herd. They look tricky. And fast.

    That is a beautiful herd. I hope the thick coats are not thicker than usual. I’m ready for a milder winter over here. You guys can have all the ice and snow.

    I know which herd I’d rather feed and take care of! I’m betting the fur is about even, though!

    We sometimes see herds like that outside of town. I also like them herd of BIG dogs… Jen calls them cows.

    Beautiful photos. I would love to find a herd like that.

    We have those big dogs here too. I always want to say hello, but the humans don’t let me. Ours wear blankets in the cold weather so I don’t think they get a furry winter coat.

    Those are some very beautiful big dogs!!! Mom says she thinks we might be in for a cold winter here since we are all developing very big appetites. We don’t care if it is cold or not, just bring on the snow.
