Today's Thundering Herd Story

Lunch Companions

August 16, 2022 |

Our poor Hu-Dad eats a bowl of unbuttered, unsalted popcorn every day for lunch. With our slightly cooler weather, he moved his meal outside to the pavilion. Don’t worry, though, his faithful lunch companions happily joined him so he wouldn’t feel lonely. How thoughtful and unselfish of Roscoe and Typhoon to think all about the Hu-Dad and not even consider that awesome smelling popcorn.

Watching The Neighbors

August 14, 2022 |

Landon was carefully performing his security duties by searching for any invading food particles that may have been dropped from the outdoor dining table. The canine siblings who live next door were outside, so Boom Boom added watching the neighbors to his task list. Yes, we are working dogs and can manage two tasks at once.

You Would Tell Me, Right?

August 13, 2022 |

We’ve all been there. You have something stuck in your teeth, your zipper is undone, or something else embarrassing is happening without your knowledge.

Who Is Taking The Blame?

August 12, 2022 |

While normally guilty of such chaos, in this case, they pleaded their innocence and wondered who was taking the blame.

Cruel Hu-Dad

August 11, 2022 |

We know everyone will sympathize with poor Typhoon’s plight. He asked to go out to the yard and our cruel Hu-Dad didn’t tell him it had rained and the grass was wet. He would have to get his feety-feet wet! The horror! The Royal Look Of Scorn sums things up perfectly. You may now share your messages of sympathy with the Little Prince.

Bestest buds Roscoe P. and His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey chase each other an estimated eleventy-seven bazillion times a day (according to Hu-Dad). Once again, you see Roscoe racing around his pal in his best attempt to spark a new game. The question, though, is did it work? Click for the answer.

Unauthorized Break

August 7, 2022 |

Hu-Dad thought all the canines were sleeping soundly, so he snuck out of his study to take an unauthorized break from his busyness. His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey doesn’t tolerate such shenanigans and followed the Hu-Dad to find out what he was doing. Busted.
