Not A Morning Cheesewhiz

Our resident redhead keeps the junior boys in check with a number of rules, the most important is to remember she is not a morning Cheesewhiz.

My crate - enter at your own risk.

My crate – enter at your own risk.

Cheoah heads outside in the morning along with everyone else (we all sleep indoors at night for safety reasons), but settles into her outdoor crate for her wakeup time. The boys are warned to leave her alone until she decides to emerge (and, yes, they pay attention to those rules). But even when she emerges for the day, she might need a little more time to be fully awake.

Nope, not a morning Cheesewhiz.

Movie Memory Monday

This week’s Movie Memory Monday was the very first video we made that featured our own resident Boom Boom. He will celebrate his second anniversary here at Chez Herd this October, but we thought we should go ahead and replay the Welcome Landon video.

A Whiff of Wildlife

January 29, 2023

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.

While we may not be siblings since we don’t share parents, we certainly claim each other as our brothers and sisters.
