Rain Delay – And Answers

The weather forecast yesterday was for afternoon thunderstorms, so we had a plan of starting out early and being back to the house by mid-day. Great plan, but Mother Nature had other plans and we hit a rain delay. The showers arrived in the morning, but we still made it out for a walk in the afternoon.

family walk despite the rain delay.

Woo-hoo – family walk despite the rain delay.

So other than the timing, it was a very normal Herd Sunday.

normal for us, as Typhoon did part of the walk backwards.

Well, normal for us, as Typhoon did part of the walk backwards.

Because we were late in the afternoon, the Hu-Dad decided to stop on the way back to the house and get some dinner. Well, some dinner for him while we guarded the Jeep.

guarding is hard work

Hey – guarding is hard work.

Most readers got the quiz from yesterday’s post correct, but Frankie and Typhoon tripped up several people. The correct order was:







Hope you had fun with that!

    Our dad is SO envious of the fact that the Herd doesn’t tangle your hu-dad up with leashes going all dfferent ways. The White Dog Army is not quite so disciplined, even when dad wears his extra hands belt.

    Hi Thundering Herd and your Hu-Dad,
    I’ve been following your blog on and off for quite a while, but been one of those bad people who don’t comment. (I always find it awkward to start commenting after some time!) I remember the antics of good old Rusty as well as when the Typhoon ripped through and stayed! I really enjoy the way you blog, and your stories about Nikita.
    Decided I really have to comment now since I gave a nod of thanks to you in my blog post today, as you’ve always reminded us about a certain piece of wisdom…
    P.S. Even though I haven’t stopped by for a while, I only mixed up Typhoon and Kiska’s Ears!

    Loved your game, and the pictures of all those ears. Soft, soft ears.

    Yup I had the bros mixed up but now looking closer I can’t imagine why I did. Because I know how much Tyty hates have his fur touches so the extra fluffies should been a dead give a way haha.

    Hugs to the 6 herdies.
