When we mention the Speed Racer Club of The Herd, we think of the champion, Typhoon. But guess who was added to the membership roster?
Without a doubt, Typhoon is the fastest here at Chez Herd. He not only has incredible speed, he can also dart, twist and turn faster than any rabbit here. Which, of course, never ends well for the rabbits.
After a couple of weeks of daily rain, our weather cleared and cooled last night – a beautiful, crisp summer evening. That burst of cooler temperatures added some bounce to everyone’s step – and a little speed to someone unexpected.
Maybe not faster than a speeding bullet? Maybe she can’t leap tall buildings in a single bound. But someone has turned on the turbo!

What Weather When?

How do you dress for a day in the Western North Carolina Mountains? Just answer what weather when? Good luck with that.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
The Queen and Decorum
Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
Mom sez: Just goes to prove that “age is only a number”, it’s the heart that tells the real story. ‘Way to go, Cheoah!
Go, Speed Racer! Go, Speed Racer, goooo! Umm… I mean Cheoah.
Our mom says something about having a cartoon theme song stuck in her head now and it’s all your hu-dad’s fault.
Love watching her shine
She’s just reminding the younger boys who the boss really is!!
Way to go Sis!!
With the “Holy cow” exclamation from Typhoon, I really thought we’d be seeing a picture of Qannik! ???? Cheoah seems to still be pretty fiesty so it’s hard to remember she is considered older.
Hu-Dad saw top speed from the Q last week, but he didn’t have a camera to capture it. Dinner was being served and Q was at the bottom of the yard. He hit maximum White Fluffy Speed.
That is a video I’d love to see!! 🙂
Go Cheoah Go!!!!
Look at that beautiful happy face!!!
Ty Ty you’re still #1 for us but look at your big sister!! She’s amazing!!!!!!!
You go, girl!
I love seeing my older collies run and play. It doesn’t happen often, but always makes me smile. I’m sure you feel the same, it would be hard not to enjoy seeing them having fun. How old is Cheoah?
She has been with us just over 9 years, so the question is how old was she when we got her. She was found tied behind a foreclosed house as the owners had just left. There were AKC papers that suggested that she was 2.5 years old, but no way to know if the papers belonged to her or not. So at least 10, maybe 11, possibly 12.
Wowwwww! Looking fabulous Cheoah ????????
