Rusty’s Rainy Day Option

Rusty 1

As the remnants of Isaac continue to rain on our days, The Herd focuses their efforts on remaining entertained without driving the hu-dad totally insane.

Rusty 2

As a member of a working breed, Rusty demonstrates his amazing skills by keeping this couch from floating away.

He can even multi-task by being in charge of the TV programming.

    If we complain about the rain, momma threatens to make us watch “Singing in the Rain!” It is really not so bad cuz dad sings along to ALL of the songs but momma has a thing about musicals.

    Hope your rain stops soon so you can get back to normal Rusty adventures.

    I always knew you were a talented, multi-tasking boy, Rusty!

    We are also trying to stay busy with the rain. Luckily we have had breaks to get in our walks, but it has been interfering with Mom’s biking to school. Hopefully you can get out soon.

    Rusty! Are you the alpha!?!? I thought only the alpha got the remote!
    Play bows,

      Zimstigator –

      Yes, I am the alpha male. Which apparently means I get to tell Frankie and Q-Tip to knock it off and go do their horseplay somewhere else. And I get to do whatever else the female Sibes tell me to do.

        Rusty – That’s so totally cool! As long as I did whatever Stormy and Ammy told me to do, I could boss Dave around all I wanted! Not that I did or do… but STILL! Ha ROO!
        Play bows,

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.
