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

Where’s Lunch?

May 30, 2023 |

When the weather is pleasant, Hu-Dad sometimes leaves his office for the table in our outdoor pavilion, the same place the humans sometimes eat meals. Doing that creates some confusion. Why are we outside when we are normally inside? And if we are at the outside table, where are the snacks? Inquiring minds—and curious Typhoons—expect answers.

We Had A Little Snow

January 25, 2016 |

Our winter may have been mild so far, but, like much of the east coast, we had a little snow this week. And so we had a little fun.

This Past Week's Thundering Herd Stories

I’ll Just Do It Myself

May 27, 2023 |

This may only be a photo, but we bet you can hear the snort of disgust, the stomping of the feety-feet, and the grumbling of His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey as he’s once again challenged by a world that doesn’t just bend to his will.

Frankie Suave Strikes A Pose

May 26, 2023 |

Frankie Suave believes in efficiency when he heads out to the yard. He handles business and wants back inside. His younger brothers, though, always seem to find something to delay things. Hu-Dad was amused when he turned and saw Frankie watching those dawdling siblings with a look of… well, displeasure.

I Missed You

May 25, 2023 |

True confession time. Roscoe is a daddy’s boy. He loves, loves, loves his Hu-Dad (almost as much as his bestest brother ever, Typhoon) and never wants to be separated. Even as this is being typed, he’s curled up at Hu-Dad’s feet. Actually, on Hu-Dad’s feet. You know, in case he moves and tries to leave the room without the appropriate canine escort.

Dance of the Trouble Brothers

May 23, 2023 |

The bestest buddies ever maintain a constant game of one-upmanship in their never-ending competition. First Roscoe goes for an advantage, then Typhoon. The fancy footwork of evasion will quickly be followed with a pounce of revenge. So goes the Dance of the Trouble Brothers.

Frankie Investigates

May 21, 2023 |

We are nearing post number 5,000 which is awesome, but it’s hard to find new stories to tell after we’ve told so many. Hu-Dad tried to mix things up by lying on the ground to take photos, but that seemed a wee bit curious to Frankie Suave.

Roscoe Roll

May 20, 2023 |

We’ve shared dozens and dozens of photos of Typhoon snoozing, rolling, or stretching in the grass of Chez Herd, but Roscoe decided he can’t let his brother have all the fun. Or maybe the grass has achieved the perfect spring thickness. Whatever the reason, we’ve spotted many a Roscoe roll the last few days.
