Table Service

Last night, the Hu-Grandmom came over to Chez Herd to have dinner. Typhoon provided table service, though we need to explain that a little.

Always helpful

Hey, I am always helpful!

For some odd reason, the humans decided to have dinner while we were outside. That never makes sense to us because how can we be social with Hu-Grandmom if we are stuck outside?

One of the many puzzles of life.

After they had finished dinner and cleared the dishes, they were sitting around the table chatting. Typhoon came in to say hello, but Hu-Grandmom was on the opposite side of the table.

No worries. Typhoon took the most direct route – straight up onto the top of the table where he sat and said hello to Hu-Grandmom. Hey, that was the fastest way to be eye to eye with the humans, but the humans were a little surprised that Typhoon had become the centerpiece.

right back outside

Can you believe I got to go right back outside?

    Ebby sez: Wow, wasn’t that a little “over the top”, even for you? Bet it’s been awhile since you went back outside THAT fast, hey?

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
