A Near Chomp

We almost did not use these photographs because they are so out of focus, but the pictures are really funny. Hu-dad took this rapid fire series of a race around the yard between Typhoon and his pursuer Frankie. Frankie gets a near chomp on Typhoon, except for a unique defensive move by Typhoon. So, apologies for the poor photography, but hopefully it will give you a Monday chuckle.

almost catch Typhoon

Frankie is cutting corners and is about to catch Typhoon.

jaws open

Jaws open . . . Typhoon rump exposed . . . This could be painful.

look of concern

Notice Typhoon’s face has gone from a smile to a look of concern.

Frankie missed

Typhoon pulls a rump tuck – a specialized move! Frankie missed!

    Mom sez: What great pictures! Don’t need a narrator for these, they tell the story all by themselves! The facial expressions are priceless!

    Those are great photos! I’m glad you shared them – blurriness and all.

    Do they ever get injured in their play fighting? Does fur get pulled out?
