Confronting The Enemy

November 15, 2022 |

Because of the social nature of Siberian Huskies, our reputation is that we’re more likely to consider a burglar someone new to play with than a threat. We share this photo today to prove, though, that we can be ferocious when needed. Landon confronted this pumpkin and demanded it not move. The pumpkin complied. What more can you ask for?

Suave Brown Eyes

November 13, 2022 |

We call him Frankie Suave because of calm, cool demeanor around Chez Herd, but don’t ever think he doesn’t know how to get his way. With that head tilt and the pool of brown eyes, he deploys his secret weapons to make the humans melt. Don’t worry, they did.

Walking With Nicole

November 12, 2022 |

We walk twice a day for a total of six miles. We do that every day. Every single day. And, yes, when we lived in Murrells Inlet, we walked during hurricane warnings (though never, of course, in the midst of the storm). So, yes, we received a couple of inches of much needed rain yesterday, but that didn’t deter us from our daily rounds. Can you smell the wet dog from there?

Our thoughts are with everyone affected by Hurricane Nicole, especially the people who have lost their lives or their homes. As always, we’re grateful to our first responders who put their own lives at risk every day to keep us safe. Our post today is a light-hearted look at our own dealings with the rain from the storm, but we don’t want to be disrespectful to those truly harmed.

Focused On The Pursuit

November 11, 2022 |

We’re quite serious about our favorite game—”tackle-wrestle-bitey face-body slam-tag you’re it.” The match goes on until Hu-Dad calls it, usually by shouting “Enough!” The indoor version is much shorter because Hu-Dad signals the end as soon as furniture, decorations, or humans become collateral damage. Outside, though, allows for a much longer match. Typhoon shows how much fun we have.

Monitoring The Neighborhood

November 10, 2022 |

Yes, Landon bounces and plays in the yard, but sometimes he needs to pause long enough to check in on the neighbors. The humans and canines are interesting enough, but this was the deer neighbors and they are very, very fascinating.

A Bed Of Leaves

November 8, 2022 |

His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey believes in his enthusiastic backyard napping, but when you add leaves for extra comfort, this might be a royal heaven for slumber. We just won’t ask what the neighbors think.

Those Ears

November 6, 2022 |

Roscoe has a quite expressive face, but those ears add accents to every message. He has the alert and paying attention face as seen above, but it ranges to the tired “Malamute” ears that droop to the sides of his head when he is sleepy. For today, though, we give you the perky ears.

A Sixth Scent

November 5, 2022 |

Today’s story is a great example of how Hu-Dad unfairly judges a Little Prince’s intentions simply because of a little historical pattern. After all, His Royal Highness argued, he merely planned to sniff the roses and savor their smells. Watering them was absolutely, positively not in the plans. What do you think, Dear Readers?

The Siberian Side-Eye

November 4, 2022 |

Landon bounced around the backyard in his usual Boom Boom style when Hu-Dad said some really crazy things. Something about “slow down” and “don’t trample the humans” and other negative things like that. Landon fired back the Siberian Side-Eye, that face that sums up the lack of obedience to come.

Strut With Confidence

November 3, 2022 |

Roscoe might be the youngest member of The Herd, but he knows that if you strut with confidence, everyone will believe you’re boss. Except for your bestest pal ever, who will tackle you in the next few seconds. And that bouncy Boom Boom brother who lives in his own universe. And that old suave guy who acts like he’s boss (yes, sir, whatever you say, sir). Other than them, Roscoe’s the boss (in his own mind).

Protesting The Guest Policy

November 1, 2022 |

Normally, the only people who ring our doorbell deliver packages to us. That’s of limited interest to us, except for a few rare exceptions. Last night, though, dozens of little humans dressed up in fanciful costumes and rang our doorbell. Then—get this—the Hu-Dad gave them treats. Them and not us! And we couldn’t greet them with the Siberian pounce. In fact, we were required to stay in Hu-Dad’s study with those doors closed. So, yes, Roscoe was protesting this inexplicable guest policy.
