Sunday was predicted to be the hottest day of the year and, pups, they were right. So we did our Sunday morning stroll up past the ski resort and across our field, had some brunch in Downtown Waynesville, picked up some dog food, and then crashed at home Sunday afternoon. High temps on Tuesday are supposed to be 10-15 degrees F lower – YES. So, today, we just share a few pics from our Sunday Stroll.

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.
Requiem for a Rabbit
May 21, 2023
A poor bunny made a bad decision, so I wanted to pay my respects with a requiem for a rabbit. My dogs plotted their own event.
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.
Missed A Rabbit By A Hare
In a fumble of Sibe Quentin security, Typhoon almost caught another rabbit, though Hu-Dad has kidded him that he missed it by a hare.
hello thundering herd its dennis the vizsla dog hay how ar they going to git the snow pushd thru those pipes??? i thawt snow wuz mostly solid!!! ok bye
A good early walkie and a nice nap time after that!
Kisses and hugs
Good thing you found that big shady tree! NC looks so pretty! Can’t wait to come visit your pretty state!
We got a walk too, but it is still pretty warm and humid here. It IS better but . . . Bring on the snow – those slopes look like they could use some white stuff.

Glad you had a nice walk! The temps are going back up here in the Northeast to the mid 90s again by Wednesday, so our break was only a few days (high 80s, some break!) A “scorcher” they are predicting for Wednesday. Great. Not Husky weather for certain! Stay cool!
Oh – nap time is the best! 🙂
That is so interesting to see the change in landscape – I can remember when you showed the same places covered in snow – not that long ago, it seems! 🙂
By the way, my human, Hsin-Yi, was wondering if it’s OK for her to email your Hu-Dad to ask some questions about moving to a self-hosted blog? She is keen to but she is scared of what it could involve as she doesn’t feel very confident with HTML codes and stuff like that. She knows a bit and is happy to learn but is worried about messing up and losing the blog or something! 😉

Fear not Northern breed brotheren (and sisteren)! If our weather pattern is heading your way cooler is on the march East! In the meantime, take lots of naps, drink plenty of fluids, eat pupsicles, and don’t over exert!
So exactly how hot was the “hottest day of the year”?
What a wonderful walkie! So glad it’s going to start cooling off a little bit!
we heard the eastern states were crazy hot this weekend. luckily I was back west 🙂
I got to go for TWO walks today!
AND IT WASN’T EVEN DARK YET!
It was hot here this weekend to, but Saturday was worse than Sunday.
Looks like you guys were nice and tired by the time you got back home.
We’s in da SC and it is MISERABLE. We don’t goes out but just to do busyness!
More snow?!?! I love the sound of that!
Try to stay cool! YOu sure do live in a pretty part of your state. 🙂
What we wouldn’t give for a little snow….it’s supposed to be 97 here today with the heat index of 117. Us siberians are wanting to take a vacation to Siberia right about now (we might even be able to talk the humans into it)!! We totally understand the nap part!!!!!

good thing woo’s tree is big enough to shade the entire T-herd! that would definitely be my fav spot.
Hmmm, I can just feel that lazy heat by looking at your photos. Here, it hasn’t been hot at all–it barely even feels like summer. Very weird. It’ll probably get super hot in late September and October, when we’re dying for fall to arrive.
It must be mighty hot to keep the Herd from hiking! I’m glad to hear that it will cool down soon. It’s not supposed to be that warm in the mountains!
I love the Kiska sleeping photos. She appears to be an expert at finding comfort!
It do be much kewler and not so hoomid here today after the thunner boomers yesterday. Mebbe it be heading your way. Evenshually.
Woos Herd! I am sure woo all miss the snow, welcome to my world, ugh hot and yucky… That little friend named Chinook in your last post looked like me! Wooos, I thought I was visiting and forgot! I think I need to move north fur the summer, any recommendations?

Tell me the Hu-Dad did not go out and mow in that heat! I think they keep jerking our chains about it being “the hottest day of the year” so that they can keep mocking us back in the back room of the news station!
lovely walkie and looooovely scenery……thanks for taking me along
Nothing else to do when it gets so hot other than nap! Glad you got in a good walk first though!
How do you guys go from looking noble in one photo, to looking so cute when you’re snoozing in another? It’s amazing!
I think when you can hide half a dog in the grass is a pretty good indicator of the lawn needing to be mowed! BOL!
Well we have lots in common that’s clear. Not only are we lucky enough to live in lovely parts of the world, but we (or is it our humans) are occasional partial to a spot of alliteration)!
But I think it is a little hotter in your region. You huskies should come to Scotland for your summer break.
PS Can I let you into a secret? Our weekend walk actually took place on Saturday, but we pretended it was Sunday ‘cos Gail said it made for a better rhythm in the title of the post!
um, Q’s back end looks about the size of that trunk! 😉 I love to make fun of his pantyloons. they’re so big! you know what they say about big pantyloons… (hint, the same thing they say about big muscles)… His pantyloons look ripe for plucking. Juno had her 2nd coat blow. I plucked. how do you resist?
What a beautiful place to have a stroll. Thanks for the pictures!
Naptime is an excellent way to unwind and spend a sunday!
Sorry about the excessive heat. We are very comfy up here in Anchorage although we have had lots of rain this summer. It has been a washout… but we dash out between storms and get our walks in. Your dogs are just gorgeous, and look so cozy during nap time. PS thanks for sharing your license plates, very clever and appropriate!!! Have a great week! xoxo
Thanks for taking us along on the stroll, great views!
Is it just me or do we keep hearing that repeatedly this summer? I could swear my weather man has talked about ten hottest days now. A little snow on those slopes might not look too bad right now…
