We really like our header picture, but we have been using it for quite some time.  Taking advantage of our snowfall, we decided to try and get some pictures of The Herd walking in the snow for a new header picture.  Simple, right?  One person running backwards in the snow taking pictures while another walks The Herd.  What could possibly go wrong?  Lean back and enjoy (you can click on any of them to get the full, big effect):


Kodiak headbutts Cheoah to avoid Natasha


Qannik showing off his better side


Maybe Kiska needs a bath?


Look over there everyone!


Kiska and Rusty – do something weird with your heads!


Kodiak – Stop, shake and trip the human!


Queen Natasha the Evil strikes


Qannik is not amused


Natasha in mid shake

Tomorrow, we will post our favorite non-outtakes and ask you to vote for your favorite.

    Qannik dares to talk back to the Queen?

    hello natasha its dennis the vizsla dog hay ummm i think yore hed is on sideways!!! maybe its just the angle!!! ok bye

    What a rare bunch. You questioned Kiska needing a bath, but she is really one of the smartest ones to keep her distance and stay out of trouble, especially with Quannik and the Evil Queen handy.

    I can’t wait to vote on this bunch. So why was it you thought you needed a new header?

    Husky kisses,

    I am woofing with laughter! Or should I say howling? You dogs are so funny and the pictures are excellent representations of snow dogs being snow dogs in the snow! My favorite is Queen Natasha the Evil striking, and how Qannik gives her a ‘what for’ right back! Keep up the great work pups!

    These are out-takes? Oh my! This is gonna be awesome. I already have more than two favorites. Bring it on! I’ll just grab my heating pad and wait for the next batch.

  7. Kit on December 21, 2009 at 3:32 pm

    I think you got some good shots, especially considering you were trying to capture all 6. I can’t get my 3 to cooperate!
    Can’t wait to see the others.
    Hugs and belly rubs to all the very photogenic pups,

  8. Sheba of West Africa on December 21, 2009 at 1:32 pm

    You guys are hilarious! I thought ALL of them would make great headings, especially the one with the crazy head turns!

  9. Wild Dingo on December 21, 2009 at 12:19 pm

    I love ’em! Why don’t you tether them all to ONE spot so they fan out, but then walk in front of them and hold a steak out… so they all point their heads forward for the shot? Ok, you see i have some experience with this… LOL! i can just see that poor tether line now… and herd paws and fur flying…

    Fabulous photos – all! The pups are made for the snow they prance in! Woooooos to you pups!
    Hugs xo,

    We like them. We sure wish we could have gotten a video of both the dog walker and the camera person. Now that would probably be in the funniest video’s.. Mom can’t even get a good picture of all three of us much less 6…

    Big Sloppy Kisses

    Those outtakes are great!! I can’t wait to see the ones we’ll be voting on.


  13. Jack on December 21, 2009 at 10:08 am

    Those are all great shots! Qannik looks amused to me, isn’t that a big ol’ playbow? Maybe woo just snapped at just the right moment.

    a-roos to yous,
    jack a-roo

  14. Life With Dogs on December 21, 2009 at 10:03 am

    I think some of these would make a great header pic! It’s great to see them in their element!

  15. KB on December 21, 2009 at 9:27 am

    Those photos much better represent how I visualize walking 6 huskies would be! The amazing thing, to my eye, is that Rusty is very cooperative. One funny head tilt was the extent of his mischief. Wow, Rusty, you let an amazing opportunity pass you by!!!!

    Many chuckles from Colorado! (And, btw, I sent you an email at ‘contact us’, explaining something mysterious in my blog that you asked about).

  16. Khyra on December 21, 2009 at 9:24 am

    Well done!
    Well done!!
    Well done!!!


  17. Cocorue on December 21, 2009 at 8:30 am

    do you realise how beautiful you guys are??????? i would loooove to walk beside you or ride on one of your backs bol…..


  18. Wimsey on December 21, 2009 at 7:21 am

    Oh most excellent! Making sure the humans have to take many, many pictures to find one they consider usable. But seriously, such an attractive herd you are.


  19. The OP Pack on December 21, 2009 at 6:41 am

    What’s wrong with them? They are all great – our favorite is the one with the bookends doing the weird thing with their heads. We suggest you make your header into a collage of all the best. You have done much better with six than Mom can ever do with just two.

    Woos, the OP Pack

    Pee Ess, Hope you enjoyed Survivor as much as the Momster did:)

  20. Maxx on December 21, 2009 at 3:51 am

    Great pics!! We luv it!

    Maxx and Mommy

  21. Sierra Rose on December 21, 2009 at 1:44 am

    Great shots! If you scroll through fast, it’s like a little movie on it’s own! Fun walkie!

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose
