We realize that some of you believe that Rusty is a clown 24/7, always marching to his own drummer. We would like to be clear that that is not true. He is a clown 23.9 / 6.999 . The rest of the time, he is very refined, suave and sophisticated. Don’t believe us, we offer proof:
And why was Rusty being so refined? Because at heart he is a Siberian – and I was trying to get a video of him clowning around. I was playing videos of other Siberians howling with the goal of filming a video of The Herd howling. This was the boisterous response I got. Nada. Zilch. Nothing.
I went inside and started doing something else. The Sibernacle Choir immediately went into full chorus only to stop when I got back to the door with my camera, all looking at me with the “What???” look. Sigh.
P.S. – I would like to wish my little sister a Very Happy Birthday today. I promised FORTY different times to not mention your age, so I absolutely will not do that.

A Walk on the Trashy Side
June 4, 2023
Maybe my neighbors didn’t notice, but I took a walk on the trashy side last week and need to confess my mistake.
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.
We Had A Little Snow
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.
Rusty I don’t believe a word ! Tell HU dad to watch out for lightning from above for telling stories about you!! And you never tell a ladies age – shame on you!
Rusty was a great one!!
Rusty will always be popular with the long timers here. Happy birthday to Hu-Aunt!
I think it’s so sweet that you called Rusty refined AND suave(now who does that remind you of?)
I too agree your promise to your Aunt is VERY special-So Happy Birthday no matter how old she may become!!
Happy belated birthday to your sister!
Love the pics of Rusty! 🙂
You silly humans. When will you ever learn that we perform when WE want to, not when YOU want us to. We do that on purpose. Just to make you crazy.
Good job, Rusty. The paws being crossed is an extra special touch.
Rusty.. you go me going aroooo rooooo! Oh.. I don’t howl. PS. That pose is worth the wait.
Ha! Now we KNOW you’re like WAAAAAY Older than her! 😉
of course it all stops when the camera rolls. sibes are so sneakey that way!
Tell your sister we said happy birthday!
Oh and Rusty looks very, very handsome in those pictures.
I can’t film Storm howling if she knows I’m there either. I have to hide around the corner. 🙂
Happy b-day to your sis, no matter what age! I like Rusty’s style – if they always did what we wanted things might get a bit boring. Then again, if our dogs did just one thing that I asked I’d have to pinch myself.
Great pics, really…
Happy Birthday to your aunt!!!!!!
Oh, he looks so regal. Ain’t it always the case? Just tell someone your dogs do not jump on people and what do they do? Yep, you were right to shield Heath Shuler from them.
I send FORTY happy birthdays to your sister, hudad!
Rusty is most sartorially splendid on his cold hard bench, deprived of a couch, probably getting cold elbows, pose.
Rusty – we think you look fabulous!
Harooooo Rusty. Furry refined. Such a handsome picture.
Rusty is one very smart Siberian – seems to run in the family.
40 shouts of happy birthday to the sister whose age we don’t know:)
Tail wags, the OP Pack
An old saying in Siberia is Pretty is as Pretty Does
and you are certainly a qualifier there.
Its good to see you behaving nicely, looking bwootiful, and enjoying it!
Way to rock it, Rusty!
Sounds like it’s a little bit like trying to catch Michigan J. Frog singing “Hello my baby hello my honey hello my ragtime gal”!
