Mentoring the Young

Mentoring

Look at how sweet it is that Cheoah is mentoring Typhoon on hole digging.

Digging and teaching

Just patiently digging and teaching. Digging and teaching. Deeper and deeper.

Potential trouble.

Though that is going to cause a problem when hu-dad has to mow the dog lot with the tractor.

you can stop now

Ok, Cheoah, that is enough mentoring. You can stop now.

Life of the hu-dad.

The life of the hu-dad. Always being ignored.

    Come on hu-dad, support the arts. It is not mentoring hole digging; it is mentoring the creative flow needed for terra-forming art. Imagine the beauty of a creation filling the entire yard created with the keen artistic eye and talent of the Herd…you should see the yard at White Dog Ranch!

    Excellent, job, Cheoah! What other essential skills are you teaching Typhoon? Counter surfing 101? How to achieve maximum shredding and de-stuffing of furniture?

    Ayla sez: (proudly) – Me ‘n Ice have some pretty beaudacious craters in our back yard, too. You’re lucky though, you got a whole lot bigger back yard to dig craters in than we do!

    Good thing the hu-dad has a sense of humor, eh?

    Hole+Siberians=Craters
    (for more fun and easier digging, add water)

    Our Elkhounds dig a spot then roll in the dirt especially Sheba. Oh well dogs will be dogs. That digging thing is in the blood.

View from the Ranch

The view from the ranch, our neighbors, is awesome, especially as the leaves begin changes and the cold weather rolls in to our mountain.
