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?

The Red Balloon (Except Silver)

November 28, 2021

The classic movie Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon) had a bouncing toy befriend a boy. My recent experience with a silver balloon, however, makes me question the uplifting tale.
