Where’s Rusty?

We know we did this earlier this week, but again we show you the Red Team and ask where is Rusty?

Just like "Waldo", you have to search the picture for Rusty.

And many of you asked the other day if Rusty does this particular walking stunt often.

The answer is clearly yes.

Highlighted just for those still looking for Rusty.

This is a video that we showed you last winter, but since so many asked about Rusty’s unique walking habit, we thought we would share it again.  Enjoy. We think that the video answers a lot of your questions.

    Ok, it’s final I often wondered what it would be like to have that many doggies and do you have a favorite? I know now that my favorite is Rusty!! He’s so adorable walking that way. Any idea why he likes to do that? Just wondering.

    you girls and guys must love the snow you have the right fur coats to keep warm.

    No wonder you all love the snow look at those great fur coats you have. You look all warm and cosy,
    We liked it for a few dats.

    We enjoyed that video! It reminds me of our bouncing Reye! That is a really interesting trick!

    You look so cute Rusty … behind the Daddy.

  6. Honey the Great Dane on December 12, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    Hee! Hee! How funny – Honey walks that way – in exactly that position – sometimes too!

  7. Tucker on December 12, 2010 at 7:48 pm

    BOL! I totally didn’t see Rusty until you highlighted the photo, too funny.

    woof – Tucker

    Jenny 🙂

    Rusty is too much!!! He truly trots to his own drummer!

  10. Homer on December 12, 2010 at 5:55 pm

    Hey Rusty,

    LOL! Thanks for sharing the video of you going for your walkies. We had to replay the video a couple of time just to see you trying to walk in between your hu-dad’s legs! You are too funny and too adorable!


    PS: Be careful that the hu-dad doesn’t let out a stinking fart… that would be bad!
    (just kidding!)

  11. Stella on December 12, 2010 at 5:16 pm

    Rusty just feels a now and then need to


    Its his thing and he does it, even when he is being challenged by hu-dad!


  12. Deborah on December 12, 2010 at 5:12 pm

    Rusty is too funny! I was really looking for Rusty!
    Have a great week!

  13. Minnie and Mack on December 12, 2010 at 5:11 pm

    Is it warmer there? Very funny boy. He does march to the beat of his drum for sure!

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie and Mack

    Hi Y’all!

    Glad y’all are sharin’ in the white stuff. Wow, Rusty be careful…you push your master down and he might not let you go along anymore.

    Wind has picked up now and it’s sleetin’ hard. Stay warm and safe.

    This makes me smile every time I think about it 🙂


  16. Houndstooth on December 12, 2010 at 2:09 pm

    I spotted him in the second picture! I knew where he’d be. I’d ask if you’ve ever tried to train him to do something different, but I figure there’d be some laughter about training Sibes and honestly, I find that little trait of his endearing. He seems to love to get your attention, and every group needs a class clown. He could have been a circus performer in another life!

  17. Khyra on December 12, 2010 at 1:50 pm

    Or a kilt…


  18. jansfunnyfarm on December 12, 2010 at 1:31 pm

    We caught Rusty hiding back there, but we can’t figure out how he walks like that. Jan won’t let any of us walk behind her because something could go wrong and we could so easily take her down We keep trying to outwit her but she’d adamant! Aside from a few high energy incidents and nearly tripping over a leash a few dozen times, not to mention Sam being inattentive and ramming her so she almost fell a few times, we can’t figure out what her problem is.

  19. Amy / Layla the Malamute on December 12, 2010 at 1:23 pm

    Oh my, Rusty…

    I thought that was just a photo trick done for the sake of entertaining on the blog, but the video shows it’s legit.

    Silly boy.

  20. Sierra Rose on December 12, 2010 at 11:24 am

    Oh Rusty! What walking style you have pal 🙂 That was awesome! And, loved the enthuiastic ‘let’s hurry up and go’ jumps too 🙂 How funny and fun!

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose

  21. The OP Pack on December 12, 2010 at 10:53 am

    Ha Ha – we spotted him in the second pic – just knew he had to be there. Does he ever come all the way through – that would not be so good.

    Thanks for the b-day wishes for Ciara – and yep, she has been here since February.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  22. Wimsey on December 12, 2010 at 10:31 am

    Maria is desperately trying to figure out why you walk like that. And giving thanks that I don’t.

    Woofs and drool,


  23. tula on December 12, 2010 at 10:18 am

    Oh rusty, if that’s how woo have funballs- pestering your bean, than i guess?!


  24. norwood on December 12, 2010 at 10:09 am

    Jeepers Rooster boy!
    I hope a porn tweeter doesn’t see your highlighted photo. It might go viral.

  25. HoundDogMom on December 12, 2010 at 8:47 am

    Silly Rusty, I think he is just making sure Dad has a good goose to keep him going. We would be interested in calming techniques for fur-kids before walks as well. 🙂 HoundDogMom

  26. Carolyn on December 12, 2010 at 7:31 am

    He knows how to have a good time, the goober.

    QUESTION! Are they easy to get leashes onto or do they mill around jumping like crazy jumping beans? My two wear me out and I have *got* to figure out how to get them to behave while I get their equipment on. I would take them walking more if we could get that figured out. (Fortunately we have a huge backyard so plenty of zooming time is had back there).

    Crazy Rusty Roo is so funny.

  27. Stumpy and Cyndi on December 12, 2010 at 7:00 am

    That’s really funny…. and awkward. I can only think it’s a good thing you’re not wearing a dress!

  28. priscilla on December 12, 2010 at 4:42 am

    LOL! He definitely knows where he should be!

  29. Kess & Her Mama on December 12, 2010 at 2:32 am

    I love this picture puzzle! Go Rusty!

  30. Holly & Khady on December 12, 2010 at 1:38 am

    He is a strange one that Rusty! But, we love him!! He marches to his own beat for sure!
