Didn’t Think That Through

Sometimes, in a Herd of Huskies always plotting and planning, you can tell that someone didn’t think that through and the outcome was unexpected.

looking comfortable

Big Brother Frankie is looking very comfortable on his picnic table.

Typhoon is forever stirring up trouble just to see the reactions. And his Big Brother, Frankie, is often the target of his mischief.

Mischief wheels

Mischief wheels are spinning.

Seeing Frankie relaxed, Typhoon simply cannot resist the temptation and will try to entice a game out of his brother. Sometimes that works. And sometimes . . .


This play bow has taken on an “Uh-oh” look.

The best part of being a big brother, of course, is that ability to say, “No. Not right now.”

eating my head

Hu-dad! He’s eating my head!

And, with that, the game is over before it even began.

back to nap time.

Ahhhhhh – back to nap time.

Of course, you all know that Typhoon is just in a corner plotting his next misadventure.

    hey Typhoon, Koda from the beach here. You know what my Hu-dad always says to me and it’s annoying?!?! “Koda the best lesson learned is a lesson learned the hard way”. Yah yah yah whatever. I just happen to think the hard way is much much muchhhhh more fun. (Paw-5’in ya bro).

    Woof woof. Oh and Grandma Misha says hello too. (She’s been doing a lotta Rollin of her eyes at me lately not sure what that means but Hu-mom always “I feel ya Misha” when she does. You bro gotta clue? Maybe ask Qtna maybe she knows).

    Ice sez: Some kidz just never learn when to quit, so they have to learn the hard way. Seems to be the Typhoon way, too!
