Leap Tall Rose Bushes

June 3, 2023 |

Many of our readers asked what Landon did that caused Frankie to a put paw down and demand better behavior. Hu-Dad went back to the string of photos and found this as the perfect explanation. The Boom Boom was racing through the roses, so the Frankster had to tell him to slow down. Amazing that Landon can go from leaping to full braking mode in just a few steps.

Cornering Skills

June 2, 2023 |

Our crazy, high-speed games require blazing fast straightaways coupled with wickedly tight cornering skills. Roscoe loves seeing how fast he can take the turns, but does admit to one, slight problem. Dewy grass first thing in the morning can be a challenge. A wipe out may dampen the fur, but it never dampens the spirit, so the chase quickly resumes.

Put a Paw Down

June 1, 2023 |

Frankie Suave earned his nickname by his calm, cool demeanor. Other than thunder and other loud noises, not much bothers him. When he became the eldest in The Herd, his leadership style matched that personality. As long as the youngsters left him out of the mess, he didn’t stop their fun. Sometimes, though, a dog just has to put a paw down and say stop. This photo caught one of those moments.

Where’s Lunch?

May 30, 2023 |

When the weather is pleasant, Hu-Dad sometimes leaves his office for the table in our outdoor pavilion, the same place the humans sometimes eat meals. Doing that creates some confusion. Why are we outside when we are normally inside? And if we are at the outside table, where are the snacks? Inquiring minds—and curious Typhoons—expect answers.

I’ll Just Do It Myself

May 27, 2023 |

This may only be a photo, but we bet you can hear the snort of disgust, the stomping of the feety-feet, and the grumbling of His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey as he’s once again challenged by a world that doesn’t just bend to his will.

Frankie Suave Strikes A Pose

May 26, 2023 |

Frankie Suave believes in efficiency when he heads out to the yard. He handles business and wants back inside. His younger brothers, though, always seem to find something to delay things. Hu-Dad was amused when he turned and saw Frankie watching those dawdling siblings with a look of… well, displeasure.

I Missed You

May 25, 2023 |

True confession time. Roscoe is a daddy’s boy. He loves, loves, loves his Hu-Dad (almost as much as his bestest brother ever, Typhoon) and never wants to be separated. Even as this is being typed, he’s curled up at Hu-Dad’s feet. Actually, on Hu-Dad’s feet. You know, in case he moves and tries to leave the room without the appropriate canine escort.

Dance of the Trouble Brothers

May 23, 2023 |

The bestest buddies ever maintain a constant game of one-upmanship in their never-ending competition. First Roscoe goes for an advantage, then Typhoon. The fancy footwork of evasion will quickly be followed with a pounce of revenge. So goes the Dance of the Trouble Brothers.

Frankie Investigates

May 21, 2023 |

We are nearing post number 5,000 which is awesome, but it’s hard to find new stories to tell after we’ve told so many. Hu-Dad tried to mix things up by lying on the ground to take photos, but that seemed a wee bit curious to Frankie Suave.

Roscoe Roll

May 20, 2023 |

We’ve shared dozens and dozens of photos of Typhoon snoozing, rolling, or stretching in the grass of Chez Herd, but Roscoe decided he can’t let his brother have all the fun. Or maybe the grass has achieved the perfect spring thickness. Whatever the reason, we’ve spotted many a Roscoe roll the last few days.

Radar Detects Approaching Threat

May 19, 2023 |

The Trouble Brothers love their games, mostly involving sneaking up on each other and pouncing. Typhoon oftens gets the upper paw in these battles since he is a master of deception. Poor Roscoe, though, forgets how skilled Typhoon is in defense. Here, Typhoon looks unimpressed at the fast approaching Roscoe.

Duty Calls

May 18, 2023 |

Roscoe was enjoying a good ear scratch during his Hu-Dad time when the twig snapped in the woods. Sure, he wanted nothing more than to continue the cuddle session. But when a twig snaps, a Roscoe investigates. That’s just the way things work. After the deer were told off, Roscoe returned to Hu-Dad for more ear scratching, satisfied in a job well done.
