Wait! Who Decided It Was Game Over?

Sunrise time at Chez Herd with a rousing game of tag in the yard. Imagine some pup’s surprise when he discovers his sister declared game over.

Wait! Why is it game over?

Wait! Why is it game over?

Landon and Cheoah were romping through the yard yesterday morning, enjoying the dewy grass during sunrise (don’t worry, Hu-Dad cut the grass a couple of hours later). The race ran around the Tree of Life and under and over the picnic table, a raucous play time that our resident youngster thought should never end. So imagine his surprise when Landon spins and looks for his sister, only to discover that she had other plans.

Breakfast time!

Breakfast time!

Yes, Cheoah was racing away from the competition and headed for the porch. What could possibly be happening that would justify such behavior. Only one thing trumps play time around Chez Herd and that is the realization that a meal is being served. Don’t worry, though, Landon caught on quite quickly to the change in plan.



Movie Memory Monday

The Landon and Cheoah games have been ongoing ever since Boom Boom’s arrival here at Chez Herd. He adores his big sister and she loves playing games with him. In this week’s Movie Memory Monday, we take you to an earlier version of Sparring With Cheesewhiz (which includes a special guest appearance by Little Prince Typhoon Phooey).
