Thirteen years old or not, Cheesewhiz leading the walks is the way things work in The Herd (and a confession where we are).
Cheoah may have recently celebrated her thirteenth birthday, but she is still very much respected by the boys. On our longer walks, she can be tired by the end, but she is always enthusiastic and ready to go at the beginning. And, no matter what, she is leading the way.
By the way, a number of readers picked up on little signs like the lack of snow and, probably a bigger hint, palm trees in the background to suggest we aren’t at home. Nope, we are on a little S-RV (Siberian Recreational Vehicle) adventure. Don’t worry, we will have the Hu-Dad home in time for temperatures hovering near 0 (and that’s Fahrenheit, not Celsius).
