Tight Formation

As Typhoon trains his newest little brother in hunting techniques around Chez Herd, he insists on a tight formation from his student.

Ok, Roscoe, follow me closely and do exactly what I do.

Typhoon has always been the lone wolf of The Herd, never caring to have a close buddy. But he and Roscoe continue to hit it off and can often be found hunting voles or rabbits in the yard together. Roscoe does maintain a respectful student pose at all times.

A nice, tight formation as they patrol the perimeter.

When hunting, though, sometimes your mind can become distracted and you close that respectful gap just a little too much.

Just a wee bit too close there, Roscoe.

    Mom ‘n Ebby say: Typhoon always seemed to be the “odd Sibe out”, while the others all appeared to have their “soul mate”. Me’n Ebby are both happy that at last, it would appear that Ty has found his “SiberMate”.

    This is trouble. His Haughtiness is planning world domination with his apprentice.

    It looks like Roscoe was meant to be a member of the Herd.

    It warms my heart to see such a close bond between Typhoon and Roscoe. Especially since Typhoon was always as you said Hu-Dad-the lone wolf of the group. Roscoe seems to be such a great student Typhoon-you are an awesome teacher!!

The classic movie Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon) had a bouncing toy befriend a boy. My recent experience with a silver balloon, however, makes me question the uplifting tale.

View from the Ranch

The view from the ranch, our neighbors, is awesome, especially as the leaves begin changes and the cold weather rolls in to our mountain.
