Snoop dogs! A pack of Siberian huskies peers through the fence after the owner makes special peepholes
These hilarious photos show a pack of Siberian huskies peering through a fence after their owner creates special peepholes for their eyes and noses.
The curious Siberian Huskies have become quite the attraction watching passers-by in their hometown of St Neots, Cambridgeshire.
Their eyes and noses are often seen all in a row, looking out of the tiny ‘Mickey Mouse’ holes at the bottom of the gates.
Owner Andy Grannell, 57, said he drilled the holes in the wooden gate not long after he and his fiancé, Maxine Adamson, moved into the house in 2014.

He said: ‘At first when we bought the house there were no gates – but we needed gates there because of the dogs.
‘We had the big gates installed, but then we noticed that the dogs would stick their noses out of the opening at the bottom of the gate to try to get a glimpse of the outside.
‘They are quite curious and inquisitive and like to see what’s going on when they hear noise outside the gates.
“So I thought, instead of having them crack their necks to see under the gates, I thought it would be nice if they could see out from their normal height.”
So Andy started drilling the holes for his five Siberian huskies – 12-year-old Amber, Topaz and Talon, and 3-year-old Rocky and Vinnie.
He said, ‘I actually have five dogs – but the reason there are only four holes is because Amber is pretty deaf right now.
So she doesn’t tend to get up and run to the gate like the others do when they hear noises outside.
‘But they all love the attention they get from passers-by who see their noses and eyes sticking out.
“I think a lot of people recognize them because I often see them walking around St Neots with them all tied around my waist – which is a pretty unusual sight.
“I love seeing the posts on Facebook from people who saw my dogs peering through the gates.”

Andy’s huskies received special attention last weekend when Jenny Polhill, 26, walked past his house and saw all four dogs peeping through their holes.
Jenny, who works at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge, shared a photo of the dogs on a St. Neots Facebook page where it received over 1,000 likes.
She wrote: ‘My day was yesterday, I finally saw the dogs peeking out of their respective holes.
“We saw one and he looked at us, then three more joined quickly and it was great.”
Jenny said she had walked her parents’ dog past Andy’s house on Saturday when she saw one of the huskies lying on the ground on the other side of the gate.
She said, ‘I saw the holes a few months ago, but I never managed to see any of the dogs see through them.
Then on the weekend I was walking by with my mom’s and my partner’s dog, and I saw the front paws of one of the dogs clearly behind the fence.

‘So I went over and called to it – and then everyone else came running, and they all put their noses through their holes.
“It was great to finally see them looking out like this, because I’ve seen the holes a few times before, but never in use.”
Jenny added that the dogs are quite well known to people in the St Neots area who see Andy walking regularly.
Locals responded to her Facebook post, and some said they had waited ‘years’ to get a glimpse of the dogs peering out through their holes.
A social media user wrote: ‘My kids have been waiting to see this for years! They never look out when we pass by. ‘
Another agreed, saying, “I’ve waited many years to see them …”
Meanwhile, a third added, ‘I love these guys, always makes my day when I walk by and see them peeking.’
