Line Up!

Tail wags, pups and kit-cats! It's me, Stormy. We just love reading the comments you leave on our blog posts! We appreciate the time and thought you put into letting us know you stopped by, read the post and checked out our cool pix!

Before I get to a great observation some friends made, let me say that we are aware some of our photos from our FlickR account seem to have disappeared. We have no idea why, but we will work to remedy that over the next few days!

Last week on my birthday post, our pals in the Thundering Herd left a very interesting comment about the photo of the four of us walking together! They said, "Need to work on the red team mixing with the black and white team - we keep that organized!"

We were out of synch, weren't we? We were having a little criss-cross leash action fun - you know, make the walk a little more fun for the bipeds. Ha roo roo roo! I, as Supreme Commander of the Ao4, usually do keep things more organized on our walks. I had Mom shoot this picture of us this morning, just for you:

8 SEP 09 walk with the Ao4
Very good, troops!

All nice and color-coded. Reds on the left, black and whites on the right! My Drill SGT and I on the flanks, so we can keep everyone in formation. We're also lined up by age - Zim, the youngest, on the left, through Ammy, then Dave, then me - the ... err ... most experienced. And we're boy-girl, boy-girl.

Hope you puppers enjoyed our more "orderly" photo!

Tail wags,


  1. Lol! More experienced Stormy. :) Good description. Not old, no way! Loved the picture.

  2. We love the pictures - order or not!
    We will leave the Order for Marvin's court case.

  3. oh Stormy, I am in awe.

    As usual, as the old, old joke, goes, "I have no idea where awe is"

    ok on to more pressing comments........oooops sorry my J has had a marathon ironing blast this arvo, so I cannot help making some 'flat' jokes!

    I digress, as usual, I like your line up here, and you truly are the Supreme Commander!

    er, can I get Diana Ross's autograph? She was in The Supremes I believe......

    lotsaluv Marvin xxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Who is currently on Remand............or was that demand.....life is so confusing I need to sleep!

  4. Wow! That's some organization! I love reading your blog and learning from all 4 of you!


  5. You're way more organized than The Herd is. I don't think they have the boy/girl arrangement in place.

    Princess Eva

  6. I love the photo! They are like a precision drill team! Way to go, Stormy!


  7. Hey there, Stormy
    Wow...you guys are really beautiful, but as I said...I really like Amber! She has the colours of the African Savanna and seems to shout "Rainbow Doggie"!
    We love you guys!
    Lots of licks

  8. When you line up boy-girl-boy-girl, does that keep talking to a minimum? When my mom was in school, they had to line up that way so everyone would stay quiet in the hall. I imagine with Ammy around, things are never quiet.

    Dear Stormy,
    that is amazing! No wonder you call yourselves the A04. I am surprised the hooman army hasn't recruited you yet!

    Mr Darcy

  10. You guys look so great, lined up. How about doing a synchronized drill team of somekind. You could hire out for parades and other special events. You would have all the treatz money you could ever want!

    I can see it now!


  11. Phew! We're glad you're back in line. We were out of sorts when your leashes were mixed up! Now we have a question, are the girls bigger than the boys? From that angle it looks like it but we're not sure.

  12. WOW...you are so very organized. Bilbo and I are lucky we don't trip over each other...and there is only TWO of us...not to mention we are under 20lbs each!


  13. Great picture..
    Callie girl is the one always messing up our walk. She doesn't like to walk next to Louie so she is always running around behind mom. When will those kids ever learn...

  14. I love how you keep everyone in line Stormy. Have you got the mum and dad trained like that as well?

  15. We feel much better to see the organization, but have never thought of all the ways you are organized. We need to do some work - Princess Eva is right.

    Left to right, we are Boy, Boy, Girl, Girl, Boy, Girl. Hmmmm - Guess we need to get Cheoah and Kodiak to switch.

    And no talking of the age order - Natasha refuses for us to discuss, mmmm, experience rankings.

  16. Man. You guys are GOOD! Guess you made the rest drop and do 20 or so to straighten them out! ha
    Howdy to Dave!
    Sunny & Scooter

  17. Did ya'll go to West Point or somethin? You guys are good!!!

    Riley and Star.

  18. Very well coordinated!
    Kisses and hugs

  19. Talk about organization! You have that down to a t.

  20. An example to drill teams everywhere!

  21. Wooos! But I loved you guys all mixed up, more fun that way! I think organization is over rated.... Scampi always goes on the right and me on the left though.... I wonder why....

  22. Very nice and orderly!

    Wags and Licks,
    Mollie & Bobo

  23. I kinda like it when you mix it up, but color coordination is nice too!
    Stormy does such a great job keeping everyone in line!!


  24. I like the photo! Good job getting your troops together, Stormy!

  25. Very nicely organized. Makes woo want to stay at ATTEN-SHUN!
    Left. Left. Left, Woo, Left!

  26. Mom has this weird thing with symmetry and having things in pairs. I think this post made her very happy :)

  27. You're such a great leader, Stormy! :)


  28. Good job on knowing your places, guys! You line up beautifully!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  31. You're so funny. I always wonder how your mom and dad keep from getting all tangled up in you and your leashes in some of those "criss-crossed leash" photos!

  32. great pic - makes me think that i need another red in my pack - got the 2 whites already!!
