Seats on the Bus

After driving over to Big Ridge State Park, we unloaded the dogs just in time for the first wave of thunderstorms.  Our timing is perfect, huh?

What is a little rain when it comes to walk time?

Certainly does not bother Rusty the Rooster.

Since our walk was a little short (though we did take another walk after sunset (and the storms), but picture taking is difficult then), we thought we would answer one of the questions we got on yesterday’s blog.  Where does everyone sit on the S-RV?

Cheoah and Rusty get the crates in the "cab-over" bed (above the driver). Why? Because they are the lightest for lifting.

Kiska and Natasha get the top of the "crate cube" so they can see out the window as we go down the road (and Natasha can navigate from behind the driver). Why? Because this is the Queen and her Princess.

Sorry, boys, but Qannik and Kodiak get the bottom of the cube.

The full set-up.

    everybody looks all comfy & cozy but I have a question for ya….does Cheoah whine on the road trips?? My parents said that I whined on the first 1 1/2 hr into our trip (I was simply telling them a long story) they told be to be more like bubba who was laying in seat being quiet..where’s the fun in that.
    Licks & Nibbles,

    Wow, very neat how you have everything organized and the reasons behind it.

    Perfect setup!
    Everyone has a special place there!
    Kisses and hugs

    I find that rain bothers humans much more than Siberians. You should see our parents when there is just a little bit of drizzle!

    I am happy you have cleared up my most organizational questions, and I am finkin…

    How does Rusty feel about being the smallest? Does he have Small Dog Complex?

  7. Sallie on May 15, 2010 at 8:17 pm

    Yay! Blog Hop! Woohoo!

    Confusion strikes again. I’ve been leaving you the wrong comments on the wrong posts… So sorry. Just overwhelmed and swamped. Your comment on “bark-a-laureate” degree had us in stitches.

  9. Clive on May 15, 2010 at 2:53 pm

    Love how you all fit in so well and comfortably!

  10. Marg on May 15, 2010 at 11:47 am

    Well that certainly is a great way to take the dogs with you. This is our first visit since we are hopping around. It looks like you have tons of fun with your dogs and they have tons of fun too. What a great thing to do to take them lots of places.
    Have a great day.

    Love catching up on the Herd’s adventures!! Sophie would love a day of running with this pack. 🙂 An impressive setup for sure!!

  12. Jazzi on May 15, 2010 at 10:20 am

    Thanks for visiting my blog, MAN!! You guys have quite a herd, WOW!! And quite a riding system. You do look like a cool and fun bunch of dogs!! I hope we can be friends!!


  13. Sam on May 15, 2010 at 10:08 am

    I love your setup! I used to go to shows with a lady who brought along 12 Jack Russels in a mini van – we had to get pretty creative when loading the dogs too!


  14. Life With Dogs on May 15, 2010 at 9:56 am

    The full setup is seriously impressive. Your pack rolls in style.

    I love coming back for more Thundering Herd adventures. The S-RV is an amazing set-up! We may need something similar for the Newf – but with a king sized bed rather than a crate.

  16. Houndstooth on May 15, 2010 at 9:41 am

    I hope I come back as a Sibe and end up in The Herd! Actually, I’m willing to be adopted! I promise to be less trouble than The Herd!

    I was wondering, were you specifically looking for another dog when you found each of The Herd, or did you just happen to come across each dog in need, and decide you had to take that dog?

  17. The OP Pack on May 15, 2010 at 8:49 am

    Hope the weekend isn’t too wet. Is there any room for Tartok and Ruby?

    Woos- Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  18. Mr Koda MD on May 15, 2010 at 6:51 am

    Can I sneak in a spot somewhere, looks much more fun then sitting at home!!!!

  19. Wild Dingo on May 15, 2010 at 4:56 am

    Can I be a Sibe in your Herd? geesh…they ride in style!

  20. Rachel, Phoenix and Zara on May 15, 2010 at 2:04 am

    but where do the people go LOL
