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

Look Of Concern

November 27, 2022 |

Frankie Suave is always calm and cool, but he does insist that certain important things happen in a timely manner. Mainly, meals and bedtime. In this case, suppertime approached and Hu-Dad was still busy with tasks, so Frankie gave him an appropriate look of concern to ensure schedule compliance.

Hold That Door

November 26, 2022 |

Hu-Dad went out to the backyard for a few things without taking us with him. We know, it sounds crazy and we knew it was a mistake. Don’t worry, though, because Roscoe took care of things and opened the door. You should have heard Hu-Dad’s shouts of glee when he saw us coming.

I Spy A Deer Friend

November 25, 2022 |

Landon freezes in the middle of the yard. He swivels his head and stares into the woods. With a flap of the tail, he engages the springs in his paws and bounces across the backyard to the fence. With that famous bushy tail flapping in excitement, he peeks through the slats and lets us know he spots one of his deer friends.

If Only I Could Fly

November 22, 2022 |

Hu-Dad’s first reaction was amusement at Typhoon’s focus on the hawk soaring overhead, but then he thought the Little Prince might be studying it for possible lessons. With a nice set of wings and the ability to float overhead, he might be able to return to his rabbit-catching days of youth. Hu-Dad tried to tell him the story of Icarus, but the Little Curmudgeon never wants to hear about the dangers of hubris.

‘Tis The Season And He’s Watching

November 20, 2022 |

A mere five weeks until Christmas Day, so something about he’s watching and keeping a list and tracking who is a good boy. Landon knows Santa Claus has always been very good to him, so he knows he’s watching. Now the only task is to convince his bad boy brother Typhoon. Hu-Dad muttered good luck with that.

Squiggly Tail

November 19, 2022 |

Landon’s ridiculous tail has long been his furry claim to fame. When he’s happy (which is almost always), the bushy mass of fur flicks back and forth. When he’s trying to sneak around with some mischief, it swirls even faster. Now, he’s added the squiggly tail to his running repertoire. We can only salute his talent.

A Twig Breaks In The Woods

November 18, 2022 |

We were enjoying a beautiful, if cold, day in the backyard. Canines were sniffing and Hu-Dad was shivering, but no one was in a hurry. Then, a sound. A twig breaks in the woods. Typhoon searches the shadows for an approaching threat, but nothing is spotted. A few minutes pass and things return to normal. And, no, we have no clue what was out there.
