Florence Rain Bores Us

As the Hurricane (now Tropical Rainstorm) dropped its Florence rain on our heads, we griped loudly about how bored we were.

When do our walks happen during Florence rain?

The most shocking part of the day was when Hu-Dad suggested that our evening walk might not happen just because of a little rain. Just look at our faces above as he tries to explain this. Can you imagine the horror?

Can we track muddy paw prints across the floor again?

By the way, we would like to congratulate Typhoon. On a rainy day when we were pestering the Hu-Dad, Typhoon managed a special feat of irritation. Hu-Dad decided to remove his bandage on his leg as the wound was finally healing. Less than a half hour later, the boy managed to split the wound open again. Notice his shiny new (pink) bandage.

Skilled or what?

Movie Memory Monday

Our walk may have been threatened last night because of a little rain, but we certainly remember a video where you got to walk with us. And, yes, we mean right in the middle of us thanks to a special camera angle. Come Walking With The Herd.

    I’d think Frankie and Ms Kiska would make an excellent pairing as well. As laid back as he is…though for some reason I’m having deja vu saying this, and thinking you have some story about why this isn’t true….

      Frankie gets along with everyone, including Kiska. He has this laid back style that just works with any dog.

      What makes the Typhoon / Kiska pairing so great is that Kiska is so good for Typhoon – not putting up with his junk. She just fixes that stare on him and he decides behaving is a good idea. No one other than Queen Natasha the Evil has had that impact on him.

    Is Typhoon hanging with Miss Kiska permanently now?

      No, but he spends a couple of hours a day with her.

    Hopefully, the worst is over.

    Oh Typhoon! You have to leave your little leg alone so it can heal!!!
    Phew ???? I’m out of breath! That was a great walk with you guys!!

    The poor herd with no walks because of a “little” rain-lol. BUT TYphoon Phooey did it again-took center stage by ripping his bandage off and opening his boo-boo. NOW you wear (again)the bright PINK bandage because you were angry at HuDad for NOT taking you out!!!
