End of Beach Week

The Herd and Herd Annex have thoroughly enjoyed their beach week vacation and, today, we pack up for the beginning of our journey home (we have a Christmas Day stop scheduled along the way). But what better way to show the end of a vacation, then to show how relaxed everyone is?

Only Queen Natasha is awake and on guard duty (looking from the hu-dad's RV over to the hu-grandmom's RV).

Tartok says it has taken him most of the week to get his "sleeping hole" just right.

The Red Team shows their extreme sleeping skills.

Cheesewhiz in her most innocent look.

Frankie is dreaming about all of the good times on hist first beach trip.

Ruby decided she could help with guard duty by watching the road in front of the RVs.

While Natasha and Kiska maintain feral cat / squirrel / rabbit patrol behind the RV.

    Does the Herd sleep outside on these camping trips? Do they sleep quietly throughout the nite?

    I’d be nice and relaxed after a week at the beach, too! I’m glad The Herd has everything under control!

    They look so cute, relaxed &/or tired! They are beautiful!

    You guys look SO comfy! I’d probably be on cat/rabbit/squirrel watch, too… but my motives might be a tad different!
    Play bows,

    Or Frankie could be dreaming up diagrams on how to make that hole deeper and wider for his sleeping pleasure.
    wondering how Tartok and Ruby get along with Frankie?

    The Frankie stories were my very favorite. Have a safe journey home.

    Oh boy good thing I didn’t come along…. The queen would’ve had me removed from the string. Pawsome trip and Merry Christmas. We always enjoy your bloggie every day although not always commenting. Thanks for another great wooful year.

    Just been reading back through your holiday posts – some beautiful photos and looks like you had a great time at the beach.

    Enjoy Christmas and best wishes for the new year.

    We’ve really enjoyed following your beach trip! Its much more interesting than our beach trips that usually only last maybe an hour.
    Have a safe trip back, pups, and Merry Christmas!

We Had A Little Snow

January 25, 2016 |

Our winter may have been mild so far, but, like much of the east coast, we had a little snow this week. And so we had a little fun.
