Happy Sunshine Day – We Missed You!

After over a week of rain, we finally had a happy sunshine day. Blue skies, spring like temperatures, and a quite happy Herd.

Dawn and I can see the sun rising!

By the time you read this, rains will have returned to out area. In fact, they probably will start before midnight Sunday, so technically we had another day with some rain. But we don’t worry about technical. We only care that the day itself was absolutely gorgeous. And some of us, after a week of indoor living, might have been a wee bit happy.

Celebration time!

Now some of you might think Typhoon was being fast in that picture. Oh, no. The Typhoon Turbo had not been engaged. This is fast:

Engage Typhoon Turbo!

Movie Memory Monday

One of the most common question our humans receive is how do they manage to walk all six of us at one time. But long time Herd readers will remember this video when the humans walked eight of us together. Yes, Ruby and Tartok joined us for a stroll down the beach. For some crazy reason, people just stared and stared. We hope you enjoy a walking video where Hu-Dad declares, Eight is Enough!

The Red Balloon (Except Silver)

November 28, 2021

The classic movie Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon) had a bouncing toy befriend a boy. My recent experience with a silver balloon, however, makes me question the uplifting tale.

View from the Ranch

The view from the ranch, our neighbors, is awesome, especially as the leaves begin changes and the cold weather rolls in to our mountain.
