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

Serious Furry Boom

September 27, 2022 |

Landon loves to romp, bounce, and dance about the backyard—activities that long ago earned him the nickname Boom Boom. Sometimes, though, the more contemplative Boom appears and he strikes a more serious pose. Don’t worry, though, such moments never last longer than a moment and the happy-go-lucky Boom returns.

This Past Week's Thundering Herd Stories

Dare You To Ignore This Look

September 25, 2022 |

Our Hu-Dad likes to pretend he’s in charge so we do our best to humor him. Each of us, though, has our own method to accomplish our personal goals. Roscoe’s approach is the head in the lap with the soulful eyes. And, yes, he’s really, really good. Now how many of you are willing to do whatever Roscoe asks?

Smile For The Camera?

September 24, 2022 |

Hu-Dad had a busy day yesterday and got way behind schedule. He realized yesterday evening that he hadn’t done our daily story yet. He picked up his camera and turned to discover that Typhoon wasn’t the closest member of The Herd. He asked Typhoon to smile for the camera and took this photo. We’ll let you judge how much of a smile that was.

Here Comes The Prince

September 23, 2022 |

His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey was busy in the backyard and didn’t want to be bothered, so Hu-Dad and Roscoe spent some time playing games. Games? Wait! Typhoon wasn’t letting anyone have fun without him, so he came charging up to find out what was going on.

Annual Promise Not To Mention Our Hu-Aunt’s Birthday

September 22, 2022 |

Each year, our Hu-Dad’s sister warns him ensure sure we don’t mention her birthday or her age. She accuses us of being cute in the way we mention it, so we’re taking 53 extra precautions this year. For example, we developed 53 point action plan and reviewed it 53 times. Nope, not getting her age out of us. Then, to hold us publicly to our pledge, we’re posting this promise here so that you know we will not mention that today is her birthday. Aren’t we such good dogs?

Our New, Shy Friend

September 20, 2022 |

We make many new friends when taking our twice-daily walks and love the extra attention and ear scratches. Our latest introduction, however, didn’t go quite so well because he turned out to be quite shy. Wouldn’t talk to us at all. Hu-Dad took the time to escort him safely across the trail.

The Face Of Concern

September 18, 2022 |

Hu-Dad’s very ancient iMac finally crashed for the last time yesterday afternoon and doesn’t appear to be coming back. Fortunately, he has solid backups, so no data is lost, but working is challenging until a replacement arrives. All of his stress resulted in this face of concern from Typhoon. Uh, Typhoon. Seriously, just a little concern. Never mind.
