Walking With the Boys

Hi everypuppy and everycat! It's me - Ammy! As you know, Mom has been walking the boys and me together; it's gotten a little better each time and we've been going a bit farther each time as a consequence! I have some pix to share with you from back before my birthday - we got all the way to the water tower that day, then turned around to come back. Ready to see?

Like I said, we got all the way to the water tower. Once we were there, I started acting ... well ... maybe just a little bit silly. Here's a collage:

Me - Ammy!

I was just happy and dancing and started telling jokes and stuff. You know ... like I told the boys if we could get to that water tower, we could make a big splash. Hee hee hee! Things like that.

We started heading home and I was still acting just a little silly. So Zim said maybe he should take on herding duties. He was looking pretty serious and in charge ...

... so Mom said he could give herding me and Davy a try. Here's a look at that:

Dave, me (Ams!) and Zim
Umm... get along little Siberians! Ha roo roo roo!

He wasn't really into it and got a little distracted ...

Hey ... what's that over there? Is that one of my kit-cat pals?

... and things got kind of ... just really unorganized!

DSCN3658 Dave, Zim, Ams
Woo. Whatcha looking at, Zim?
Not back there, Dave. Over here!
Umm... I think I'm ready to get serious and herd the boys again!

So Mom put me back in charge, and I did my best to get the boys back in line!

OK, boys! Get together! Form up!

It was much better that way.

Since he's a Drill Sergeant, he needs to think more along Drill SGT/troops lines instead of the shepherd/sheep lines! I think that will work better for him!

For those of you with snow - enjoy! We might get another round tomorrow. I haven't made my snow-cast yet!



  1. We have just commented on Friday!!! Anyway great pics - loved the collage with the pink frame. We are always getting our leads twisted up too.

  2. You did a great job getting the boys back in line Ammy! We were worried it was going to get unruly there so it was good you took over. Where was Stormy?

  3. Nice job herding, Ams & Zim. By any chance, did my penguin-herding video inspire woo?

    Here's a joke for woo, Ams...
    Have woo herd, the one about the run-away ducks? It'll really quack woo up!

    Hope woo liked it, Ams!

  7. You do such a great job Ammy with the boys.

    We do love the disorganised piccie though...lol

    Hope you are having a great weekend you guys.

  8. Hi, Ammy!
    Sure you and the boys had a nice and long walkie!
    I guess herding is a hard job!
    Kisses and hugs

  9. Ammy, you are just so funny!! Dancing, telling jokes, herding!!! I'm glad you got everyone back in line! Love the pictures!!! If I could package our snow, I would send it all to you!! We have more than enough! Lots of love, Debbie and Hollydog

    Ammy, you sure are the life of the party! Good job keeping those boys in line! I thought for sure you were tough competition in the Herding group at MM 2010!!


  11. You did a very good job of sorting out the herding Ammy. Obviously that is not my bestest friend's strong point.


  12. Ammy you are the best at getting the organisation going.. Keep up the good work.. Hugs GJ xx

  13. Excellent work, Ammy. Funny - none of the boys of The Herd can "herd" at all (the pun is just for you). It always takes a female.

  14. You look so cute playing in front of the water tower!

    Good job getting the boys in line. You guys are some talented leash braiders!

  15. Ams, those boys wouldn't know what to do without you! You 3 look marvelous together. I'm not ready for any more snow....please say it isn't snow (ha roo roo)

  16. Zim looks promising for herding but maybe he just needs some distraction training.


  17. Great job! I can only walk 1 at a time, can't imagine 3.

  18. I just love that last picture! :)

    Great job getting everypup in order! And great job to your mom for walking all 3 of you!


  19. Ammy you are really good at that.. Bet you get to herd again real soon...

    Big Sloppy Kisses

  20. Love that third pic up from bottom with everypup looking in a different direction! (Of course, Ammy, hoomans do that all the time heheh!) I can see, though, that all three of you looked in perfect formation by the time you were headed home! Good job! Hope you got some treats!
    Hugs ox

  21. I never had much luck walking two Goldens together - or back in our Great Dane days - even one Great Dane! I imagine it is pretty exciting walking your crew together! They really are beautiful dogs!

    Hey Ammy,
    You need to go on Lettermen. We love your jokes. You must just crack everyone up with your quips. If Zim is such a good Drill Sargent why wasn't he barking out orders.
