A team of misbehaving Siberian Huskies, known as The Thundering Herd for the sound as they approach, and their hapless humans.

Since 2007, over 5,000 stories have been posted to this website about the lives of rescued Siberian Huskies living at Chez Herd in Asheville NC, their forever home after a rough start to life. These are stories of fun, mischief, and adventure—with just a sprinkling of education mixed in.

The stories are told by the stars, the dogs of Chez Herd, and transcribed by D. K. Wall, also known as the Hu-Dad. He spends his days penning novels. You can find out more at his website, dkwall.com.
