And The Herd Expands Again


As the Queen, it is my duty to let you know that the Herd expands again


You see, the hu-dad got this phone call last night about a litter of six Siberian Husky puppies needing a home.

Typhoon and The Herd expands

Considering how much the youngest member has matured over the last several weeks, we could not turn down this chance to expand.


So the hu-dad decided to adopt all six and let each one of us raise our own Siberian Husky puppy.


Though there is one important detail that all of you should know.

Q look at camera

Even Qannik knows that today is April Fools’ Day. Did you really think hu-dad was that crazy?

    Ayla sez: Okay, so you got ALL of us here in Dawson Creek! And the hu-Mom says to tell you that in answer to your last question — YES!

    Yep, we were there with everyone else up to the ‘keeping all six’ part. Perfect April Fool’s gotcha!!

  6. Steve & Kat on April 1, 2013 at 2:36 pm

    Wow! You really got us there. We thought maybe since you have a new house you needed more pups to fur it up!

  7. Sam on April 1, 2013 at 11:38 am

    We were getting kind of excited there!

    Yes… I did, until ‘each would raise their own puppy.’ Such an addicting breed. Almost believable.

    One can only hope. ; )

    You had us until you said all six puppies! We didn’t think your dad would be THAT kerazy!

    Sadly, I fell for the “Herd expands again” headline. And when you mentioned the litter of 6 puppies, I squealed “Oh, you’re getting a PUPPY!!!”. Then when you said you were taking ALL SIX, I knew we’d been had. Dang it! I just finished reading another April Fools post on another site, I should have known!

    Although… The thought of QNTE raising a puppy and teaching it all her evil ways almost from birth is an interesting idea.

    Sigh….I fell for it too. Guess we all thought hu-dad could be that crazy when it comes to rescuing huskies!

    I wanted to see each one of you raising a pup too!!

    brilliant! wish you’d seen my face when i was reading the ‘adopting all six puppies’ bit! priceless.

    Khonsidering two KHATS took khontrol of my blog today, I knew QNTE had things under her khontrol!

    PeeEssWoo: Mom is listening to WHYY on her iPAWd – the high in Philadelphia will be 100 today 😉

    OMG! I totally fell for it and even said out loud holy crap! Good one hu-dad. Hugs and kisses to the herd.

  16. Piappies World on April 1, 2013 at 2:59 am

    For while there we got excited and we imagined that each of you will have a leash attached to a little collar of the lil sibe pup!

    Good one, Queen Natasha!

    Happy April Fool’s Day!

Undercarriage Dog Wash

Q-tip loves hanging out in the yard, particularly on a rainy, muddy day like Sunday—even if it does mean he needs an undercarriage dog wash.
