Posing on the Bench

Did you see Rusty posing all Zen like on this bench yesterday?
He is not the only one who can “strike a pose.”
Hu-Dad says ignore the nose art on the windows and the fur balls on the floor.
Just focus on my beauty and my fluffy tail.
Oh, and here is Rusty as you really know him. Nice scary face, Roo!

    This looks like a young Kiska, before all the floof. She was such a beauty.

    So many fond memories.

    Ms Kiska was a beauty ! Pre Chief of Security days ?

      Whatever Miss Kiska’s background before she arrived at Chez Herd, she always had the distrust of others that gave her the natural security instinct. Her friendship with Queen Natasha gave her the confidence to stand her ground. So she probably hadn’t earned the nickname yet, but she was well on her way.

    HU-Dad-SO many great posts on this one. I too have to say I love seeing the fur balls and the nose art! IF I didn’t have those things at my house it would be a VERY lonely house! Kiska’s tail was SO bushy and Rusty was a handsome boy!

    Gorgeous! Y’think they’re ready for the CATwalk? 😉

    Such stunning beauty, Kiska. You should be in Vogue or Dogue or something similar.

    Kisses,

    Of course the dogs are beautiful! How could they not be?

    I was excited to see the nose art and fluff balls. I hate seeing pictures of houses with dogs they don’t look like anyone lives there. It just makes me feel bad.

    Thank you, thank you–pretty dog pix and a normal looking home.

    WOO WHOOO! Look at all the models over there! 🙂

    You know you’re a long time dog lover when you see through and do not notice nose art…

  11. Mr Koda MD on August 15, 2010 at 11:00 pm

    Nose art and fluffballs are fine by me! Great poses

  12. Lorenza on August 15, 2010 at 5:57 pm

    You are a super model Kiska!
    Happy Sunday!

    Great poses, Kiska! But I DO like Rusty’s zen, too.

    Strike a pose — vogue!

    When my the Mom sees you all, she just wants to run her paws frew your furs. She finks you are all so pretty and also handsome.

    As for me, I fink you all know how to command the bench. Great place for watchin out the window and excellent job wif the artwork! Me and the Bleu need to perfect our work on the back door and trolley windows!

    As for fur, I have been finkin of openin a toupee business for the hairless breeds… Wif your help, I fink we could make millions. Just sayin.

    wif love from the Luke

    Kiska, I honestly didn’t notice anything else until you mentioned it! All I saw was your stately beauty on a pedestal!

    That IS the Rusty that we know and love!

  17. Shawnee the Shepherd on August 15, 2010 at 10:55 am

    Your hu-dad has such class calling it “nose art”. Tell-it-like-it-is mom calls it “dog snot.” So embarrassing.

  18. Khyra on August 15, 2010 at 9:44 am

    We sooooo khan’t take our eyes off the furry fluffy tail!

    Great job Kiska!

    I didn’t notice the fur on nose art or fur balls until Hu-Dad said to ignore them! That bench would make a nice grooming station, though!

  20. Martha and Bailey on August 15, 2010 at 8:56 am

    Just gorgeous! We just came over from Facebook and it wouldn’t let us leave a comment for some reason so went back to blog!

  21. Husky Daddy on August 15, 2010 at 8:33 am

    Kiska, you are indeed the next great Supermodel! And Rusty – great maneuvering to get the leg of the bench right behind your open mouth so it looks like you have 5 inch long fangs!

  22. El'bow & Hauwii on August 15, 2010 at 6:42 am

Miss Kiska takes the challenge from Rusty the Rooster to prove her modeling chops by posing on the bench. We think she wins.
