    He sure looks hard to approach..

    Maybe that kid has a heart of stone?

  6. Sagira on September 1, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    Why isn’t he talking back to you and petting you? geesh…what is wrong here?

    Kiska, get one of the boys to pee on him. That should get him moving!

    That kid is just plain rude and will be a stiff when he grows up.

    I bet I wouldn’t have been as brave–sometimes I wait and see what Toby does before I get near something new.

    Ha ha! From the post title, I wondered what kind of unfortunate and unenlightened kid would not be attracted to the Herd! Now it makes total sense.

    Forget the kid, Kiska… let’s lick his plate!

    wif love from the Luke

    “This kid’s a stiff.”

    It looks like the Herd was less embarrassing than R can be around statues. When he realizes that they aren’t responding, he starts barking insanely in this high pitched voice at them. Everyone in the area stares as I pull a bag over my head.

  17. Houndstooth on September 1, 2010 at 8:06 am

    Kiska, anyone would have to have a heart of stone to resist you, and I think that boy does!

  18. The OP Pack on September 1, 2010 at 7:55 am

    Looks like Kiska might be more interested in the birdie than the kid. Great shots.

  20. Wild Dingo on September 1, 2010 at 6:57 am

  21. Carol on September 1, 2010 at 1:56 am

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
