    Haa Roo!! That’s a great picture…I think everyone was just excited to get out and about in the snow for a walk…you guys sure do love that white stuff as for me I’m counting the days til spring.

    hehe…looks like fun!

  11. Wild Dingo on December 16, 2010 at 5:11 pm

    We NEVER do that at Wild Dingo. Nope. Never.

    BTW: we’d love to see “other” off-leash action shots…perhaps in woo’s doggie yard? we think you keep that private because all the dogs are pefectly behaved the entire time in their yard. and it would be boring.

  12. Ryker on December 16, 2010 at 3:24 pm

    Thats good to see, just a normal family!

  13. HUSKYS RULE on December 16, 2010 at 12:51 pm

    Love the action shot!!!! Looks like Rusty & Q are minding their own business being the “angels” of the walk!!!!!

    We are not sure what happens to the fur-kids at this time of the year. It must be something in the snow. 🙂 The HoundDogs

    I had wondered about that… Good to know! But there still looks like a lot of order in that chaos. I can still just barely handle my one dog!

  18. Fiona on December 16, 2010 at 10:11 am

    You have just made Mom feel MUCH better, as we are sometimes a bit directionally challenged… 😉

    Oops!!! your hooman was quick enough to snap this moment!!! I don’t think there is any craziness in it, I just see the true you!!!

  20. Shmoo on December 16, 2010 at 9:23 am

    Love that photo!

  21. KB on December 16, 2010 at 9:04 am

    Now that’s more like it!!!! I don’t feel so silly now for ending up wound up in *two* dogs’ leashes! It doesn’t even look like Rusty was at the root of the craziness…

    Great photo!

    Dear K&N

    I khan’t believe The Hu-Dad hasn’t figured out woo only do that fur blog material!


  23. Shawnee the Shepherd on December 16, 2010 at 8:31 am

    So glad to know you guys is normal! I is the bestest behaved on hikes, in fact, mom says I am the pawfect hiking dog, but take me for walkies with my sisses and I would blend rite into your picture of noggtiness up there.

  24. Houndstooth on December 16, 2010 at 8:30 am

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! I think I heard some Jaws music in the background! That’s a great shot!

  25. Ricky on December 16, 2010 at 7:50 am

    LOL! You all have made me feel much better about my occasional freak-outs on walks! Glad mom doesn’t get pictures of me though – 🙂

  26. Stumpy and cyndi on December 16, 2010 at 7:38 am

    That trail looks narrow and the hill steep! Not a good place for a glitch in the pattern, unless your into roly poly.

    Someone is VERY brave, risking their balance for a picture! Kudos!

  27. Boomer and Bluebelle on December 16, 2010 at 7:38 am

    might be normal craziness but looks like a lot of fun

  28. Pamela on December 16, 2010 at 7:13 am

    I think snow requires those kinds of silly faces.

  29. MAXMOM on December 16, 2010 at 5:03 am

    Hey there Herd….

    It seems like this ‘craziness’ is universal. Out Goldens have also started ‘mirror-prancing’ this morning. Enjoy the snow while we enjoy the rain.
    If I don’t get the opportunity again, I’d like to wish you all a wonderful festive season, a happy Christmas and a bright new year.

    Check-out the cover of the “Territory Ahead” catalog. I was sure they ‘rented’ you guys for the “cover shoot” when I saw it. Of course we live in L.A.

    PS did you borrow my rottweilers, floof them and then harness them for this shot??

  31. Sierra Rose on December 16, 2010 at 2:28 am

    WHAT A SHOT! Wish I could be a stand-in T-Herd!! It would be fantastic!!!! I’m on call…just give the signal and I’ll be right over 🙂

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose
