Our evening exercise routine for the junior team turned into a wet walk, but Hu-Dad had a good reason to make it happen anyway – Tired Sibes.
Our evening walks are split into two teams. The senior team, Kiska and Qannik, take a fairly short walk to ensure they keep up their exercise despite not being able to go very far. And the junior team takes off on a more vigorous and longer walk around our neighborhood (which probably requires neighbors to really be a neighborhood). With the ski area closed for the summer, we enjoy a peaceful stroll through the empty parking lots and roads.
Our mountain weather has been quite consistent – the rain always starts when we are at the furtherest point from the house. Last night didn’t disappoint and we all got wet from a little shower. Still, we completed our walk and everyone was dragging by the time we got back to the house.
Miss Cheoah has lived at Chez Herd for just over 10 years now. As a reminder, she was found behind a foreclosed house, abandoned by her previous owners. Paperwork in the house indicated that she was 2.5 years old, which would make her 12.5 years old now. But we aren’t sure if the paperwork applied to her or not. So she is at least 11 years old and probably older. Keeping up with those young boys isn’t as easy as it sounds, though she is determined not to be labeled a senior quite yet.
On the otherhand, you wouldn’t expect certainly youngsters to look this tired by the end of our walk.

Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,500 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window. This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
