Woo, puppers, yesterday was a really long and tiring day for us.
First, our humans decided we needed to be walked prior to going to the Downtown Dog Walk for Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation. Does that make sense to you – a walk before walking? Something about needing to burn morning energy off of us so we would behave. Whatever do they mean? Anyway, our hu-dad took this picture off of the front porch and we thought it was pretty cool. It is the moon working its way down in the western sky while the sun rises behind us, starting to color the sky.
Secondly, it was warmer than we had felt all summer. It got to 78 F (25 C) at the house yesterday, which we probably could have handled and all, except that we weren’t at the house. The dog walk was down in Waynesville, NC. They had a high of 84 F (29 C) and that, puppers, is hot for The Herd.
We will have plenty of pictures and even video from the walk on our Walking Wednesday segment this week. We even have video of Rusty being so Rusty. Trust us, we have never seen him do what he did before and he had people laughing it was so funny. But you will have to wait until Wednesday to see it.
In the meantime, we thought we would share this picture from last year with you. When our humans arrived downtown, people kept saying they enjoyed the pictures in The Mountaineer from Friday. Except our humans never opened the paper on Friday (it only comes 3 days a week). Here was the picture:
We love that Kiska is sticking her tongue out. While we like raising money for a good cause, she is not a big fan of crowds. And we all appear to be milling about – not walking forward. It is a chaos shot! Woo!
So, anyway, let us tell you how tired we got during the day. After the dog walk, which was after a morning walk, we went for another peaceful walk just for us. Can you tell what is wrong?
Long time fans of The Herd will notice that we are out of order. From left to right, that is Cheoah, Kodiak, Qannik and Natasha (Rusty is off to the left and Kiska is off to the right – both playing like they always do on walks). Woo, that is so wrong. We normally walk Kodiak, Cheoah, Natasha, Qannik. We will try to do better. First, we need some sleep time.
At least Rusty is not too tired to remember that he never sleeps on the ground. Wooo.

Canine Kitchen Flood
March 19, 2023
One of my dogs had an accident which resulted in a canine kitchen flood. No, no, not the way you just imagined. He’s more creative than that.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
The Queen and Decorum
Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
Our parents take us for pre-walks or sometimes even pre-bike rides when we are supposed to behave. You know, maybe if they changed their standards to match ours, we’d always be behaving!
We forget to stay on our sides when we are tired too.
Steve and Kat

Bricey – 110% Dog
Such a tease!! Can’t wait to see what Rusty was up to.
What a great photo of you resting! I lurves it! It’s really hot here too, so we feel your pain (or should i say heat!)
Misbehave, the TH????? When? We just don’t believe it.
And why are there only four of you in that pic? That’s wrong too:)
Can’t wait to see Rusty’s fun.
And it was 98 here, no walk before a walk for us, in fact no walk at all.
Your hu-dad took a beautiful picture! How wonderful that you all made it on the newspaper. It’s so cute that Rusty never sleeps on the ground.
A walk before the walk? That’s just plain crazy!
PS: Any idea why Dad always walks me for 4 minutes to an hour before everyone else goes with us?
I know you guys are tired and all but get back in order — rules are rules!
Wooos!I am really looking forward to seeing my favorite Husky being himself, Go Rusty!

Hey a tired Sibe is a happy Sibe!
I would kill for some 78 degree weather! Our high today is 92 degrees. Fun. If it got down into the seventies I would probably be wearing long sleeves lol.
Glad you all had fun. Oh and it is not nice teasing us about Rusty. I can’t wait for Wednesday!!
They look like they did fine, even though they were too hot and tired! How did the hu-Dad do?
Can’t wait for Wednesday and more pics. Your gang is more fun to watch than clowns at a circus!
I’m sure woo sufficiently tired out the humans as well!
