Straw Day

March 10, 2009 |

Guess what we got?  Natasha is checking it out: So is Qannik, but he is being shy because Bricey revealed his secrets: I fought the dog food bag and the dog food bag won.  *** Sigh *** Ok, let’s go check it out: Yep, we got fresh straw down in the dog lot.  Since we…

While we were out yesterday, Natasha was working hard to track down the Snow Thief.  Here she is following the Snow Thief’s scent: Unfortunately, the trail ran cold.  Er, warm.  Oh, whatever:

Wow.  It got much, much hotter yesterday than predicted – 80°F (27°C) in the valley according to – just 1 degree off of our record high for the day.  Considering that a week ago, we were walking in snow, this is weird.  Our low this morning of 34°F (1°C) was higher than our highs…

Happy Saturday to everyone.  An absolutely gorgeous day here with lots of sun and a high in the 60’s predicted (almost 20 C), so we are headed out to go hiking and enjoy a nearly spring day.  True, we preferred last week’s snow, but the humans seem really energetic today, so we better take them…

Dear Humans –  I’m mad.  Can you tell? Wednesday morning, you made me miss breakfast.  Breakfast.  That, may I remind you, is a meal.  Food.  Need I remind you of how I get when breakfast is late?  And this wasn’t late.  This was missed.  Gone. For what?  A visit to the V-E-T.  That’s two strikes.…

Nothing in particular today, but a few tidbits of information: ********** Poor Natasha and Kodiak.  Yesterday morning, they figured out something was up when breakfast was served and they didn’t get any.  Ruh-Roh – it is time for the V-E-T.  They failed to pay attention to Zim’s instruction of Dental Health Month and had to…

The Day After

March 3, 2009 |

Tomorrow, we will show you some video of us walking in the middle of the storm (we are saving that for Walking Wednesday), but thought we would share some Monday pictures with you – the day after the storm.  Nice warm day with a high of 23F (-5C), so we went for a long walk…

A Blizzard Rescue

March 1, 2009 |

Ok, not really, but the title sounds good.   The story is simple.  Our hu-dad’s parents went down to see our hu-aunt and uncle and, importantly, our little hu-nephew (is that all clear???).  Forget it – ignore all of this human stuff, and focus on the really important thing – our cousin Tartok went to…

Sigh . . . Rain

February 28, 2009 |

We have rain.  Lots and lots of rain.  1.6 inches (4cm) in the last 24 hours, so the Herd is expressing its total boredom right now. Rusty, Kodiak, Cheoah (er, cleaning herself) and Qannik (or, Qannik’s ears and body) on the porch   Rusty and Kodiak in the dog room (they swear not their wet…
