Why We Walk

Hu-dad takes us on really long walks every evening. We wonder why we walk so much?

Just another evening walk

Just another evening walk.

Don’t get us wrong. We love our walks. We get to explore nature. Hunt rabbits. Sniff horse apples (yes, since we walk horse trails, the horses love leaving us gifts on the trail!).

walk backward!

And walk backwards!

Yes, yes, Typhoon, some of us walk backwards, too. Yes, we have lots of fun on our walks.

have fun!

Well, I certainly have fun!

But Hu-dad says there might be another reason that we walk every evening. Why?

too tired to figure it out

I’m too tired to figure it out.

    How far do you usually walk? Must be good for the humans, too.

    You’re really pawesome Typhoon for the talent of walking backwards! You’re all looking so fit and sporty. Enjoy your walks.

    I’m not sure why, either! And we got to go on two walks yesterday and Mom kept saying stuff last night about “what a peaceful evening” it was and a bunch of other things like that! I’m not sure what all she said … I was kind of … tired. It was odd.

    Typhoon is such a character! And an incredibly handsome boy, too! You must all be super fit.

    And I bet Hu-dad is tired as well. I only have to walk my sibe Silky and she wears me out.

Halloween Costumes

October 31, 2014 |

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.
