Every Step You Take

Unlike some of the past leaders of The Herd, Frankie Suave doesn't spend time bossing the youngsters around or telling them what to do. As long as they leave him alone, they have free rein. To keep them in line, though, he reminds them in more subtle ways that he has what it takes. He goes on our twice-a-day walks and keeps pace, sometimes with a sideways glance to remind them—every step you take, I'll take. They get the message.

Around Every Corner

You may have noticed the new fireplace isn't finished. Of course not, mumbles Hu-Dad, because now we're waiting on the stone. Who wouldn't want perpetual construction? But ignore grumpy Hu-Dad because we think it's added yet another hiding place in the yard. Just remember, Dear Roscoe, around every corner might be a waiting bestest-brother-ever who wants to pounce.

Royal Judgment

Hu-Dad displeased His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey. We don't know what he did or why he deserves the royal judgment, but the look of shock and horror on Ty's face says all we care to know.

Here Comes Trouble

The crew working on the fireplace left. Hu-Dad settled in a chair with a glass of wine and a good book. What could possible go wrong in the peace and quiet of the backyard? Then the door opens. Here comes trouble—in the form of the Trouble Brothers—His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey and his ever-present shadow, Roscoe P.

An Unexpected Event

Hu-Dad said he needed photographic evidence to prove this unexpected event. Things like this just don't happen with Siberian Huskies. And yet... yet... Hu-Dad said, "Come here." Roscoe did. Shock! (And notice Typhoon on the side ignoring everything.)

Fireplace Inspection

We're so excited because the crew showed up yesterday to work on the next-to-last part of our pavilion project—the installation of the fireplace just in time for summer! Once this is complete, the paint crew will apply stain to the pavilion and the fence to protect it against the weather. Roscoe and Typhoon are hard at work on fireplace inspection to identify who left paw prints in the mortar mix. Hope they solve that mystery soon. (P.S. - Click the link to read a funny side story on the blog.)

Why Are We Inside?

The long morning walk was hours before. The mid-day yard time has come and gone. Now we are waiting on the long afternoon walk, but Hu-Dad is consumed in his busyness. On this beautiful spring day, Roscoe's look asks the question we all wonder, "Why are we inside?"

Feel The Eyes

His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey has so many problems. The Hu-Dad, of course, is taking photos and disturbing his nap, but a bigger issue looms. His bestest buddy ever, Roscoe P., waits for the nap to be over so wrestling can began. He's patient, but he's there. Can you feel the eyes, Typhoon?

But We Are Behaving

Hu-Dad has so many funny rules in his office so he can do his busyness. For example, we can't sleep in his chair (ahem, Frankie), stand on his desk (yeah, Typhoon), or crash into Hu-Dad while doing zoomies (Roscoe). This may be hard to believe, but we shouldn't chew on his toes either (Landon needs reminders of that one). So when Hu-Dad asked why the Trouble Brothers were wrestling, Typhoon and Roscoe said, "But we are wrestling quietly and—for us—that means we are behaving."

The Royal Side-Eye

His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey can do no wrong—in his own view of the world. Unfortunately, the Hu-Dad disagrees from time-to-time (ahem—several times a day) and attempts to explain rule violations. Here, the reply involved the royal side-eye.

Topsy-Turvy Talent

Believe it or not, Landon isn't even the first canine at Chez Herd who sings upside down. Miss Cheoah "Cheesewhiz" could break into song lying on her back while getting her belly rubbed. When song time breaks out, vocal skills are needed, no matter what the topsy-turvy talent.

Canine Popcorn Envy

Silly Hu-Dad thought he could enjoy his lunch break outside while we canines explored the yard. We smelled his snack before he settled into his chair and greeted him with faces of canine popcorn envy. We negotiated a fair taxation rate that satisfied all parties, but he needs to bring a bigger lunch in the future.
