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.
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.
Number 2 followed by 4. 2 for the regal look and 4 for the more wild look. Hope that you Christmas was a great one!!!!
Great pictures, again! We vote #2. Merry Christmas to you all!
I vote for #2!!! But they are all great shots, w/ beautiful subjects!
They’re all great! Hmm…I think I like #2 the best!
I love how Kiska is posing in #3! 🙂
#1 or #4, I prefer #4 cause it shows some personalities of the herd (or part of the herd).
So while they are all really good, I think I will pick #2. I like that angle and for the most part, you are all looking at the camera. Kodiak is also covering your human’s legs for the most part and we know that there is no place for a human on the Herd’s blog.
What a Great pics fof you guys!!!
Sorry for our late answer!!!
Our preferred is N° 4!!!!!!!
You all look soooooooooooooooooooooo beautiful and happy walking on the snow!!!!
What a special family you’re!!!!
Sweet kisses and licks
Wooos! I like #4! Shows a thundering herd effect!
-Kira The BeaWootiful
I like the first one except for Kiska’s and Kodiak’s expressions.
My favorite though is four! I love the interaction between Kiska and Qannik. Also love Kodiak’s stare and how Rusty is trying to pull away to do his own thing. I would definitely go with four. 🙂
I like 2 or 4. 2 is more centered than 1 up and down wise. 4 has some of your personalities. The most “perfect” picture would be 2.
I like number two, but it’s very close with number four! They all look like they’re about to start laughing in that fourth one!
Even though Kiska is stunning in #2, #3 and #4, I have to vote for #2!
Brice the Handsome
I like #1, because it looks like everyone is facing the correct angle for their position in the line!
ooo….so many votes for 4! but so many like 1 or 2 too… i think i like 4 best, cuz it’s discombobulated, thundering, lots of expression… not perfect, but yet symetrical enough!
Hmmmm, I think I like #2 – just look at that paw formation they’ve got going on the left — “right paw forward…NOW!”. Furry impressive pack-work.
a-roos to yous,
Can I vote for one of the out-takes? Those look like the most fun! Ha roo roo roo!!!
PS: We’re trying to get caught up with our blog-reading! Thanks for being patient with us!
One is my favourite and if your hu-dad was worth his chops he could photoshop your leashes and those person legs out of that photo.
You all look pawesome in the snow. #1 because you all are focused on the same thing…what was it?
I like Four. Because they’re all moving with each other, but they all have a little bit of a different expression on their faces. Qannik’s barky face is too cute!
No.2 is the vote of the Irish jury!
We thought you might like to see the husky sleigh ride alright! It was an amazing experience for the NLSM – one he still talks about three years later!
love and woofs
Number 2!! Definitely Number 2!! They are all great photos, and all you pups look just beautiful! But my eyes keep going to picture Number 2 because I think all of you look your very best in that photo.
Loved number two…they all look happy and they look like they are a really well behaved pack of puppies 🙂
#4, followed closely by #2.
#2 looks the most formal (and I like how everyone has one paw forward), but 4 definitely shows the most character!
Thank you for visiting my blog.
I love your pitures and my favorit is number 4.
Your are sooooo beautiful.
I guess I’m the only one who liked #3 – it just seemed to jump out at me!
I vote for #1 or #2….Mom agrees with me (which is as it should be!)
wags, wiggles & slobbers
#4 fur it best khonveys the Sibe-ness of The Herd!

Numbah Two for almost-perfection herd-like attitude!!! But for personality, #4!!!
We wanted to send you a link to a terrible story in our local Denver paper. 108 counts of animal cruelty are being filed against the owners of Huskys. The owners failed to feed the animals and five starved to death before authorities moved in. The Herd needs to help us send up a “howl” about this incident.
Mogley G. Retriever
Number 1, please!
Numero 4 has most accurate positions.
Number 4 is the only one for me, full of spirit and movement. Its just THEM, moving along, pulling and loving their Sibe lives.
Jo and Stella
The dogs look like they’re most organized and well-behaved in #2. I can see everyone’s face.
But, in #4, they look like a tribe of wild Sibes. In control but with lots of spirit.
I’m having trouble choosing because the two are so different – but I think that I’d choose 4 for the spirit!
I like number one! They are so fabulous!!
We like all of them, but #1 seems most appropriate with five of the pups in step together and Rusty being the different one:)
Woos, Phantom and Thunder
#4 for sure.
Has Qannik been doing some modeling?? There’s an ad in the current issue of Smoky Mountain Living for a jewelry store in Waynesville that has a beautiful
white ‘Qannik look-a-like’ in it!!
Enjoy the snow!!
Chuckling. No, Becky, that is not Qannik. But we know the store owners and the Sibe. Highly recommend them for unique jewelry if you find yourself in Waynesville. They have done some repair work as well as some new pieces.
Has to be number 4 for me, great picture
Gotta go with #4 – even tho Rusty and Cheoah seem somewhat distracted, and Kiska is attempting to correct them -lol. Alternately, #2 would be a close second, being the most symetrical.
#4 looks “thundering”
2 and 4.
in 1: Kiska looks depressed, that’s why i like 2 better. they all have similar expressions in 1 & 2, except kiska, who looks better in 2. tho the reds are slightly out of focus in 2. but i think expression rules over perfection in focus.
3 is out because i don’t like the angle. too messy. but that’s a sibe i guess! and it’s the most out of focus. good dogs TTH-dad, stop eating the pot brownies before your walkies!
4, i like because QNtheEvil is in the middle, as she should be. Looking very serious. Quannik looks playful and Kiska has an awesome expression on her face. And Rusty is being rusty, doin his own thang.
peeesswoo: you should change headers seasonally!
I definitely think one or two. They are soooo similar! The formation is great and the pups all look fabulous! The alignment looks really good in number one also.
Phbbb and KhL
hmmm i likes one and two…. but one best
