THe monday herd | The Dogfather

The Godfather, The Head Hancho, Mr. Big Cheese.  The Patriarch.

Every rescue I imagine had it rough in the first few years of their lives.  They experience things a lot of us wish they never had too.  But it makes them who they are.  Jake came to us with patchy hair, a broken tooth(from gang fights at the track I imagine), teeth worn down from chewing on the chain fence and a hunger for affection.

He now proudly sits on top of the herd hierarchy.

Five things you may or may not know about Jake.

  • Jake’s real, well full name is Jake The Snake.
  • He was rescued from Wonderland.  Despite the name it’s not wonderful and it’s now closed thanks to Massachusetts law.
  • Jake’s tail does not wag side to side, it goes in a circle like a helicopter.
  • He loves carrots
  • Stairs were alien to Jake when he came to our house.  He still is not positive on their purpose or how to go down them

Love it!

The Monday Herd | Ladies love mondays

Pretty Woman

She went from working gal, to country gal in a split second.  Joy is our newest addition to The Herd, and quite the addition she is.

5 things you may or may not know about joy.

She has two tattoos, one in each ear.  All racing greyhounds get these.

She spends every waking hour outside investigating and exploring, even if its pouring out.  We call her our little flower girl since she loves being outside so much

When she gets in trouble, she lowers her head and just looks up with the sweetest expression.  Kinda makes it impossible to be mad at her.

She roaches a lot more than Mr. Jake.  Almost everytime she falls asleep she’ll roach, it’s acutally quite amusing.  She loves to make a big scene about it.

We rescued her from CT Greyhound Adoption.

Oh! Every time you post from the humane society, it just breaks my heart. If having a dog (or additional cats) wouldn’t absolutely ruin my timid little kitty’s life, I’d have a house overrun with furries.

Great photos as usual!

The Monday Herd | Holy Awesomeness

Herd

-noun

A number of animals kept, feeding, or traveling together; drove; flock: a herd of cattle, a herd of sheep; a herd of zebras.

Herdies

(My uncle coined this)

-noun
1. a person, plant, animal or more specifically a dog that is part of or belongs to a; commune, party, herd, pack, collective or any other body.
So now with the education out of the way, I’ve decided to, for the next few MH to look at the individual Herdies that make up TMH.  Starting with Tech.
Five things you may or may have not known about Tech.
  • Tech goes riding with me.  Riding as in mountain biking.  We usually(try to) ride almost everyday, for those you do go riding you should really check out some of the New England trails they are pretty sweet.  Tech is an expert at drinking our of my camleback and for the amount of deer we have seen he has never chased any of them
  • He is the instigator, he loves getting the other two herdies all worked up.  He’ll growl and bark just to get them going; he loves pushing the envelope to see how far he can go.
  • Hates Chips, loves carrots, tomatoes, cucumber, pickles, broccoli, onion, pork, chicken, yogurt, and pumpkin.
  • If you play “alligator pie” by Dave Matthews.  He will freak out at the beginning of the song and bark extremely loud.  It’s actually pretty funny
  • Every time the flash goes off, he knows he is going to get a treat and he is one of the most tolerant dogs I have ever owned.

Rock Star portraits, aren’t just portraits.  They really express who your dog is.  Tech is one bad mother.
