What do you do when you get in trouble with your elders?


You go the safe zone, of course.

Safety 2

The problem is you might be stuck in that safe zone for a while waiting for them to relax.


Sooner or later, though, you get your moment to escape.

Back in trouble

Of course, that youth thing just gets into trouble again.

    It’s hard to think of Frankie as an “elder.” It’s obvious from the pictures that Typhoon is a youngster indeed. He is a cutie and seems to be enjoying himself, despite the indoctrination!

    Love to all the Herd 🙂

    Love it! So nice to see Ty enjoying his new life 🙂

    That series of photos told the story all by itself, pretty much didn’t even NEED the words for it! Ty seems to be taking his “indoctrination” into the Herd pretty much in stride. (Long, fast strides!)

    So much energy, so much fun!

    Envious that you have nice weather….

    Youthful energy is good for everyone. Keeps us all younger.

    That’s a hoot.

    With two new youngsters, has Q-tip acquired the position of alpha male?

    Funny how that lesson has to be learned over and over again! lol

    Great body language on this pictures. Hang in there Typhoon, they like you, but will just show it later.

    I’m soooo happy I stumbled across your blog a few days ago. This entry is simply wonderful. For those of us who know dog behavior, these pictures alone would have told the tale (tail)!! 🙂

    Peace~ Andrea
