Back to Normal

As Natasha and Cheoah continue to recover from their TPLO surgery, things around Chez Herd are slowly going back to normal. Well, normal for Chez Herd. Yesterday was the first time in almost three months that the entire Herd went walking together, even if the walk was limited the distance that Cheoah is able to go for now.

Oh, boy, we are all back together and going on a walk. As the youngest member of The Herd, I am so glad things are back to normal. – Typhoon

walking backwards

See, I even still walk backwards some of the time.


Not that Kiska is looking like she is totally happy with all of the chatter from a certain young pup.

    So, soooo happy to see the herd walking together again 🙂 🙂
    Hu dad and I’m sure hu mom too, are very special parents!

    Ha ha ha! It IS good to see everybody back together again! And I suspect that Typhoon will be a character forever!

    So glad everyone is better and able to take a walk together. Jack from our pack walks backwards also! He also goes between his Hu-Dad’s legs! Best wishes for the holidays.

    Nice to see them all together, even if briefly.

The Red Balloon (Except Silver)

November 28, 2021

The classic movie Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon) had a bouncing toy befriend a boy. My recent experience with a silver balloon, however, makes me question the uplifting tale.

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.
