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.
What Weather When?
March 26, 2023
How do you dress for a day in the Western North Carolina Mountains? Just answer what weather when? Good luck with that.
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.
The Queen and Decorum
Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
How funny! Two of my favorite things – Siberian Huskies and air conditioning. 🙂 You see, we have two Huskies at home. Timber and Tonto are 3 and 4 years old. We adopted them from our local shelter 2 years ago. They were too much of a handful for the previous owners. You need to keep them active. They are such a lovable and wonderful breed. We love them so much! I’m also an air conditioning contractor by trade in our hot state of Florida. You can imagine how much our huskies depend on the air conditioning to stay cool.
Love it! What a beautiful dog! Any way to stay cool during the summer helps!
Great stuff. They look so comfortable. I know I am a little late (over a year?) but Husky House has done some great things!
Much love to the herd.
What a gorgeous dog you have. Thanks for sharing.
Excellent positioning and form! I’d give you a “9.8” We all do the same here…ours is not a home for the overly bashful…or modest.
We are so ready for your big day…and maybe a donation to Sarge’s.
Me and Zimmie do a lot of that, too!
That is one of my favorite ways to lay! I also cool off with a nice AC vent under me!
Voting for Taysia Blue!
Ah..the upward dog yoga posture!
My favourite too!!
Hey, we resemble those poses too! But we do think having a wall helps.
Nominating Joplin Humane Society again.
jack & moo
Belly up! A great way to keep it cool!
Kisses and hugs
We did some of that afte showing off for the biped grandparents today in the Texas heat. Hope everyone is having a safe weekend!
Another nomination for texas husky rescue, please!
Niko and Wolfy
Whitney likes his style!
We’d like to share one we got an email about today – it is part of a donation drive for the OK tornadoes –
Khyra and Her Khampers
my 2 cents for Joplin Humane Society..almost forgot to stop by but am watching Natgeo on tv and they are showing the footage again.
Went to a page with the animals listed who have been found..it’s heartbreaking to see so many missing their families and the families are certainly searching for them. The Humane Society has declared that none will be put to sleep. They will hold them as long as needed till their families come forward to claim them.
Hee hee hee… There is nothing funner and more cooler on your belly than rolling over under the cool airs of the indoors… unless you live with a kamikaze hellion. Just saying.
Nice work, Tartok!!!
with love from the Bleu
Golden Retriever of Houston
Gotta keep the belly cool!!!!! We know that pose well!!
Licks & Nibbles,
Kody & Nia
Our nominee is Charleston Animal Society:-)
Um, Teddy sleeps like that sometimes. Australian Animal Protection Society again!!!
It became very warm very quickly here today, so there have been three bellies on display here too, even Phantom. Of course, one pup found her spot by the a/c vent:)
Go Joplin Humane Society!!!
Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara
We opted for the air-conditioned house today (it’s about 90 degrees outdoors)–maybe we will go lay in the cool grass this evening. We went wading this morning! Putting another shout out for Tails of the Tundra Siberian Husky Rescue.
–Rubi, Holly and Sprite
We’ve got natural air conditioning at the moment! And we want to throw out a vote for OUR favorite charity, Paws and Stripes (http://pawsandstripes.org). They train rescue doggies to be service animals for veterans with PTSD and/or traumatic brain injuries. They totally rock!
-Fiona and Abby the Hippobottomus
Keep those tummy cool….
Our shout out today is for Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue in Delray, W/ Va.
I often wish my pups would lay like that. I vote for BAD RAP 🙂
Maddox is jealous, he can’t do that. He sneezes like crazy!!!
Tartok has the exact same style as Morgan, although for the most part, she prefers that pose for belly rubs. That is one relaxed Sibe!
We vote for Quad Cities again!
That is so funny. Sagira lays like that a lot as well.
Yeah…my rescue is listed. Sure do hope Louisville Weim rescue gets picked, that would be awesome. 🙂
In the greyhound world we call this roaching. They are famous for it.
And, of course we have lots of roachers waiting at the Oregon Greyhound Adoption for their forever homes.
We will cast another vote for the Arizona Golden Retriever Connection.
Here in Arizona we have our AC units in the ceiling, so our dogs don’t get to enjoy that!
Great contest!! The pictures made me giggle. We had a collie growing up who used to sleep that way. Not sure if it was her way of keeping cool in the summer but it always put a smile on my face. 🙂
We totally resemble those poses quite often!
We also want to put in our nomionation again for our dear friends at Taysia Blue SHR.
Holly and Khady
We totally resemble both those poses!
And, of course, are putting in another nominagtion for our beloved Taysia Blue SHR!
Holly and Khady
Skye smushes her face up against the AC when we’re in the van so that none of the front-seat passengers get any cool air. But how could I begrudge her, with that super thick coat of hers?
Our group, Texas Husky Rescue is doing a drive to collect items needed by the displaced Joplin dogs – we’re collecting all dog-related necessities and planning to send all the donations on June 12. Wish we could do more for them… But I’d still like to nominate Texas Husky Rescue, as there are a number of huskies right now that need rescuing from local shelters!
This is a good contest, Herd, because we always want every body to win, and this way we can vote for at least a few of our favorites. To day Stella is voting for:
Golden Retriever Rescue of Houston
Mogley wrote today about the loss of Gracie, another beautiful Golden and this in in memoriam of her.
