Fireplace Inspection

We're so excited because the crew showed up yesterday to work on the next-to-last part of our pavilion project—the installation of the fireplace just in time for summer! Once this is complete, the paint crew will apply stain to the pavilion and the fence to protect it against the weather. Roscoe and Typhoon are hard at work on fireplace inspection to identify who left paw prints in the mortar mix. Hope they solve that mystery soon.

Why Are We Inside?

The long morning walk was hours before. The mid-day yard time has come and gone. Now we are waiting on the long afternoon walk, but Hu-Dad is consumed in his busyness. On this beautiful spring day, Roscoe's look asks the question we all wonder, "Why are we inside?"

Feel The Eyes

His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey has so many problems. The Hu-Dad, of course, is taking photos and disturbing his nap, but a bigger issue looms. His bestest buddy ever, Roscoe P., waits for the nap to be over so wrestling can began. He's patient, but he's there. Can you feel the eyes, Typhoon?

But We Are Behaving

Hu-Dad has so many funny rules in his office so he can do his busyness. For example, we can't sleep in his chair (ahem, Frankie), stand on his desk (yeah, Typhoon), or crash into Hu-Dad while doing zoomies (Roscoe). This may be hard to believe, but we shouldn't chew on his toes either (Landon needs reminders of that one). So when Hu-Dad asked why the Trouble Brothers were wrestling, Typhoon and Roscoe said, "But we are wrestling quietly and—for us—that means we are behaving."

The Royal Side-Eye

His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey can do no wrong—in his own view of the world. Unfortunately, the Hu-Dad disagrees from time-to-time (ahem—several times a day) and attempts to explain rule violations. Here, the reply involved the royal side-eye.

Topsy-Turvy Talent

Believe it or not, Landon isn't even the first canine at Chez Herd who sings upside down. Miss Cheoah "Cheesewhiz" could break into song lying on her back while getting her belly rubbed. When song time breaks out, vocal skills are needed, no matter what the topsy-turvy talent.

Canine Popcorn Envy

Silly Hu-Dad thought he could enjoy his lunch break outside while we canines explored the yard. We smelled his snack before he settled into his chair and greeted him with faces of canine popcorn envy. We negotiated a fair taxation rate that satisfied all parties, but he needs to bring a bigger lunch in the future.

On The Edge Of Suave

Frankie Suave's name comes from his calm demeanor around the house. Other than thunder, few things disturb him. Sometimes, though, he's on the edge of suave when things aren't quite right. For example, walk time has arrived, but the Hu-Dad needs "just a few minutes" to finish a few things. The look says it had better be very few.

Lounging In The Pavilion

Something perfect about a quiet, spring evening in the backyard. This is exactly what the humans had in mind when they started the pavilion project. The fireplace still has to be built, but we don't really need that right now, so we are already lounging in the pavilion. Yes, even the bouncy Boom Boom enjoys some peaceful time stretched out.

A Suave Friday

Mr. Calm is enjoying some pleasant weather time outside, mainly because those pesky younger brothers are all inside. He has decided a snack on the veranda would be perfect, so he has deployed those magical brown eyes on the Hu-Dad. Trust us when we say he might be a quiet guy, but those beautiful browns are quite effective in getting his way.

The Sniffer Knows

Our neighbors were out on their back deck. Roscoe could hear them talking, but he couldn't see much because of the trees blocking the view. He sat back up and put the ultimate weapon to the test. The sniffer knows all and soon announced all the edibles they had at their outside dinner. Too bad Hu-Dad didn't let him go over and perform a taste test.

Not Up To Nothing

Funny thing about any mischief that happens around Chez Herd—Typhoon is always involved. So even if Hu-Dad hasn't figured out what's been done, he stands ready to accuse the Little Prince. Just last night, Ty was giving his absolute best "not up to nothing" routine. Hu-Dad nodded and said you're sure up to something.
