Welcome Committee

Both members of our welcome committee sport big smiles and a receptive attitude, though may be more bouncy than others.

A happy greeting to all - welcome committee
A happy greeting to all

We enthusiastically greet our visitors to Chez Herd. Some might say a wee bit too enthusiastically. In case we haven’t made it clear, Rocky the Raccoon has joined our carvings and our welcome committee. He’s a little stiffer than Roscoe, but the smile is just as big.

    Between the fox and the raccoon and the other one, these are adorable. Can one get them if they live out of state from you?

    Welcomes are always great-no matter if the smiles come forma Sibe named Roscoe P OR a carved Raccoon!

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.
