Study the picture above carefully. Yep, there are eight of us on the drop line. Our cousins, Tartok and Ruby, of The Thundering Herd Annex joined us on Sunday for some walks. We love having them – and our hu-grandmother – join us.
The real fun part is that these pictures were taken at the Folk Art Center on the Blue Ridge Parkway. What we did not know was that a lecture on the red wolf was being presented at the Center at the same time we were on the drop line outside. Our hu-dad had to explain over and over that we were not a part of the presentation and not wolves. We just enjoyed all of ear scratches and belly rubs.
The best part was that we got to go on not one, but TWO, hikes as an extended family. And remember how our hu-dad was really excited the other day that he had taken a picture of all 6 of us. You know he took it as a challenge to get a picture of all 8 of us walking. But since he was part of the walking team, that was proving challenging. He finally got it, though the angle is a little wild.
That would be Rusty, Kodiak, Cheoah, Ruby (yes, yes, the reds hung out together), Tartok, Qannik, Natasha and Kiska. The fun part was watching the expressions of people – and dogs – coming around the trail in the other direction.
