Keep Your Hiding Spots Secret

In a large family with many siblings, keeping your hiding spots secret might be a challenge, but that might be your best option for peace and quiet.

Are my brothers all busy? No one paying attention?

Are my brothers all busy? No one paying attention?

Cheoah loves her brothers. Really, she does. But, sometimes, a girl just need some time to herself. Away from those pesky boys.

Quick. Before they see me.

Quick. Before they see me.

So, on a nice summer evening, you might see a flash of red fur racing across the grass at Chez Herd. A red dog anxious to go where her siblings don’t see her. Just for a few minutes of quiet.

They didn't see me come down here.

They didn’t see me come down here.

And you wonder why she works so hard on her basement refuge.

One of my best hiding spots. So quiet.

One of my best hiding spots. So quiet.

    I don’t blame you Cheoah! I KNOW you love your brothers but as Hu-Dad says-a girl needs her space and peace and quiet once in a while! Enjoy your hiding spot sweetie!
