Chuckling – we still love the suggested meme for the day – Ruby Tuesday – so we thought we would use Tuesday to share pictures from The Thundering Herd Annex – the hu-grandparents house.

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.
Oh Ruby, hopefully next time they will slip and you will get a goody from the counter!
Sam always has a post-dinner evaluations where he checks to see if there was anything he could have done differently to get more tidbits!
I hope some yummy things fall off the counter for you soon!:)
Keep the faith you will conquer the counter soon.
It’s always great to see Ruby – and I love the play on words. 🙂
Tartok knew better than Ruby today. Not even a crumb for poor Ruby? Sucks. I’m hungry now.
I think she’s working on a plan so that there will never be another meal prepared without something dropped. Please give her this tip from me: Lay right in front of the stove or sink so that your mom has to step over you to do anything. Eventually she will lose her balance and drop something.
Oh boy! Just LOVE this post! I do all the exact same things you all do pre-during and post dinner heheeee! What an imaginative share – thanks so much for the great photos too!
Big Hugs xo
Ruvy reminds Mom of TD – always ready for food.

My new brother looks just like you guys when dad or mom are making food. Me? I sit politely in the chair by the doorway and watch from there because I know dad ALWAYS lets me “sample” what’s cooking.
Oh yes you all help just like we do. Callie does the surfing. Louie stays really close, between mom and the cabinets hoping for droppings..

I’m sorry Ruby. Better luck next time.
Don’t give up…your bound to get something sooner or later!
You have to get lucky some time! Keep trying!!
Clive and the NSLM
whenever I read the theme for Tuesdays it makes me want a burger
Sammy agrees that counter surfing is indeed a fine sport — better luck next time, Ruby!
“Next time I’ll feint left and go right. They’ll never expect that.”
Good plot Ruby!
I see a major skhore in your future!

Aw, don’t they always look so disappointed when the opportunity for tidbits has ended? So cute.
Happy Ruby Tuesday from our Ruby to yours! 🙂
Woooos Ruby! So sad, no snacks… try harder next time, I snagged a meatball yesterday! Woooo!

It’s amazing how fast a dog like Ruby can train humans! Our R has us impeccably trained about the counters!
I mentioned that R counter surfs more for CDs than for food. Well, we’ve discovered that he’s specific about the CDs. He only gnaws on ones containing MRIs, CAT scans, or xrays of spine. I guess that I like his attitude. But, going back to hospital for new copies and having to explain that my dog chewed the first one is kind of embarrassing and funny!
Awww! Better luck next time, Ruby! Maybe they’ll trip over Tartok lying there on the floor and need a clean up on aisle five!
Ruby, don’t worry. The humans will eventually slip up and you will once again score some premium noms by counter-surfing.
Awww… no snacks? Maybe if you keep walking into your humans’ legs, they might drop stuff then!
There is never a dull moment with the herd! =) Aren’t Grand peeps the best?! Sometimes my Grandpeep winks and says “Oops” while dropping yummies on the floor. Shhh! Don’t tell! =)
No counter surfing? Well, at least you tried. You were in a good position, just too bad you could not take advantage of it. Tartok looks very content!
FIRST! I see how Ruby has assumed he pawsition as Queen and Tatok has faithfully accepted his duty. Go Ruby!
