Counting Noses

Hu-dad was well trained by our first Siberian Husky, Nikita, who was a masterful Escape Artist (click that link for an old story of her escaping ways!). One of his habits now is counting noses – a periodic pause when we are in the yard to make sure that all Siberian noses are present inside Sibe Quentin! Well, we like to make that a little difficult sometimes as Frankie demonstrates.

hunting Valentines!

Hey, I had to see if I had any Valentines tucked away so I can win this contest!

*****     *****     *****     *****     *****

Yes, Frankie got a big boost in the number of Valentines received yesterday – and is in the lead with 24 Valentines. But Qannik is still dominating the amount of donations raised with $132. Thus far, you have contributed $405 to benefit Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation.

Still plenty of time to get your Valentine in the mail to us. If you wish, enclose a check or money order to Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation and mail your valentine to:

Dog’s Name
c/o The Thundering Herd
PO Box 1835
Maggie Valley, NC  28751-1835

Remember, one lucky reader who has sent a Valentine will be selected to receive the Grand Prize donated by Smoky Mountain Dog Bakery!


Typhoon checking out the Grand Prize that one lucky reader will receive!

While all of this is great fun, the real winners are the animals that Sarge’s will be able to help because of your generosity. They work miracles every day finding homes for dogs, cats and, yes, even a pig last year!

    Yay Frankie! He’s my man! 🙂 But that is very impressive for Qannik!

    Love the new header – especially love how Kiska is just to the side, eyeballing Typhoon and making sure he is in line. Hee hee. Love it.
