Boom Boom Wants To Understand Hu-Dad Secrets

Boom Boom attempted to understand some Hu-Dad secrets, but couldn’t stay awake long enough to have success for some odd reason.

Yet another family walk.

Yet another family walk.

Hu-Dad insists that we take a lot of family walks when we are on one of our S-RV adventures. We take a pre-breakfast walk, a post-breakfast walk, a mid-morning walk, a midday walk, a pre-dinner walk, and a post-dinner walk. But why do we take so many walks?

Can you share one of your Hu-Dad secrets with me?

Can you share one of your Hu-Dad secrets with me?

Hu-Dad started to explain to Landon why we walk so much, but Landon’s eyes got heavy and he was softly snoring before he ever heard the answer. For some strange reason, that made Hu-Dad smile.

Wake me in the morning.

Wake me in the morning.


Way Back Wednesday

Hu-Dad commented last night that we should recognize how many of our classic posts for Way Back Wednesday have something to do with our “resourcefulness.” In this classic story, we provided Hu-Dad with the perfect Project Day – and yet he remained unimpressed with our help.

    Thank you for being a good dog parent. We had to live in a RV with four german shepherds for 60 days while moving states and buying a house. Thank goodness it was off season for RVers because our dogs do not like other dogs like yours do. We exercised them a lot too to release the boredom of not having a yard (we had come from an acre yard). We did buy a house with 20 acres and I was never so glad (and the dogs were joyous) to have a yard again to walk in without leashes and to just hang out outside. Like your dogs, german shepherds need exercise and stimulation or they can be destructive or get into trouble. I had a homeopath (yes we use homeopathy and herbs and feed raw for our dogs-can you say good life) who asked me once why when we had an acre yard, we still felt the need to take our dogs for walks in the woods and swimming every day. I told her that dogs don’t exercise themselves and if left to their own, walk around the yard, not run and exercise. She was a breeder of dogs and should have known better but did not.

    A tired Boom is a good Boom. Isn’t it humbling when we have to try to be more resourceful than Sibes? It’s a full time job!

    lol Neither present nor past angles would dare chew on the rails….I think you have termites….

    The herd was just helping you by carrying off dangerous or damages pickets. They were thinking of safety.

    I still marvel at your ability to wear out dogs that by definition shouldn’t be able to be wore out unless you’re running them 16 hours a day…I guess they’ve grown soft 😛

    Maybe the Herd from Way back Wednesday needed a couple extra walks that day ????????

    A tired Sibe is a good Sibe 🙂
    Love Project Day! We have pickets on our deck that have been used for chew toys as well!
