A team of misbehaving Siberian Huskies, known as The Thundering Herd for the sound as they approach, and their hapless humans.
This Week's Thundering Herd Special Features
Weekly thoughts from our Hu-Dad with the latest updates on his writing projects, the books he's reading, and a gratuitous dog photo of us.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,500 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window. This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
This Past Week's Thundering Herd Stories
We know many of our readers are dealing with far higher temperatures than we are, but we’ve broken into the 90s several days in the last two weeks. Our walks are early in the morning and later in the day and strictly along shady trails. But when we have a sultry suave—Frankie Suave, that is—you know it’s hot.
Afternoon walk time approaches and our official clock-watching Siberian Roscoe P. takes his duties seriously. Hu-Dad, however, catches on his reading in a more leisurely approach to time. Could you concentrate under the not-so-patiently waiting gaze?
We hang out with Hu-Dad in his study as he writes in the mornings and does other busyness in the afternoons, but the mid-day break is the most exciting time.

Typhoon is applying some serious thought control to will the tasty morsels to fly toward him.
Is it the deer? Bear? Rabbits? Squirrels? We don’t know, but Landon loves sitting by the front doors and watching. Hu-Dad has been trying to capture a good photo of the daydreaming Boom Boom sitting at his post, but took this one through the glass doors of the study. The reflections in the panes gives the photo something of a dreamy effect.
Dear TTH Fans: Hu-Dad here. On Saturday, we tragically lost my brother-in-law. The sudden and unexpected end of his life has devastated us all—his parents, his sister and her family, his extended family, his many friends. My own sister is reeling from the loss of her rock and partner. My Super Nephew… I don’t even…
Landon appreciates all the compliments from yesterday’s post about his crazy tail, so here is another view of his plume. Landon thanks everyone for your compliments on yesterday’s post about his crazy tail. He posed with a big smile in the yard last night giving you another view of the plume.
