Too Early For This

We all know that morning when things start moving too quick and you just aren’t ready. All you can say is “Too early for this.”

too early for this

Life at Chez Herd by the Sea might seem blissful. Two long walks a day. Breakfast and dinner fit for kings. Comfy beds and couches for snoozing. Birds and squirrels to watch. But the price is our photographer Hu-Dad following us with his camera. Typhoon saw it pointed in his direction and grumbled, “Too early for this.”

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

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.
