The DOR has been found

I found the DOR! She wandered in Monday evening with a pocket full of peppermints and a big grin on her face. She explained why she was missing.
It turns out there are more members in the DOR's herd than the ones I have seen. The DOR is the oldest of eleven kids. She jokes that it is a collection of his, hers, ours, and nobodies...she loves them all. Not only does the DOR have a human herd, but so does the support crew chief. His herd adopted the DOR into their herd. I guess when humans get married not only do they start their own herds, but they also belong to each other's herd. That is all too confusing to me, I have enough trouble keeping things right in just one herd. Can you imagine the chaos of trying to balance life in three different herds? I think that things are simpler with one herd at a time.
The DOR went with the support crew chief and mushboy to visit the support crew chief's original herd. There were aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, sisters, and the support crew chief's parents. Just like when horse herds gather, there was a bit of herd dynamics that needed to be worked out...the pecking order had to be made clear. One of the fillies...err I mean sisters is due to foal in May (maybe on my birthday). The herd leaders are really nice people and the DOR loves to visit with them. It is amazing how far members came for this herd gathering. Every member that came also belonged to other herds...it seems to me like it is similar to a meeting of world powers (only on a smaller scale). There were games, talking, a bit of grazing, and a party for the coming foal...err baby.
I am a bit upset that I didn't get to go to the grand herd meeting. I think I will schedule one for here the next time, that way the DOR will be here to take care of important matters like my butt massage. I did get my peppermint, scritches, massage, smooches, and my nose blown up...but she still has a lot of catch-up spoiling to do. I snurfed on the DOR's coat sleeve and dropped some hay in her hair. I did get a bit worried when I saw her with a green tarp, it turned out that it was for Freedom and not me. Good thing or I might have rehired the investigator to loose the DOR rather than find her.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR

Big herds are confusing, but it sure keeps things interesting at those gatherings.
