Santa Claus Down

We were startled on our morning walk to come across a heinous crime scene—Santa Claus down during this festive time.

Santa? Santa? Santa? - Santa Claus Down
Has Santa been in the eggnog again?

We see interesting things on our sunrise walks, but the sight of Santa sprawled in a front yard and spilling into the street was disconcerting. Too much eggnog? Another overzealous SantaCon reveler? Or just another inflatable victim of cold overnight air? I guess you could say Santa was feeling a little deflated (our Hu-Dad has dozens of these, so we should stop now). Don’t worry, though, boys and girls, we’re the right Herd to solve this problem—one of us always has some air to share.

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.
