Typhoon Responds

After yesterday’s video post of Twisting Turning Typhoon, our readers had a number of questions.Β In today’s post, Typhoon responds to those questions.

Ready and waiting

Ready and waiting.

In regards to all of the readers who wanted to pluck the shedding fur from Typhoon, his response is simple. DON’T. The ever expanding list of things Typhoon does not like includes plucking. And brushes. And the blow dryer. In other words, yes, any conceivable means of shedding fur removal is met with resistance. Never mind that the rest of the Herd loves the blower. And the brush. And even tolerates plucking.

nonsense

Hopefully, that puts this plucking nonsense to rest.

To respond to all of the readers who note Frankie’s incredible patience as a big brother, Typhoon replies – Hey, this is about me! Oh, sure, Frankie is the most even-tempered, well-behaved dog in the house. And, yes, he puts up with the constant Typhoon Tornado (hey – an alliteration of disaster!). But, Typhoon would like to note, there is that occasional moment when he is racing to the far corners of the yard with Frankie in hot pursuit. Let’s just say that even the Franken Monster has his limits. (Though, all is forgiven in moments and Frankie is back to the big brother role).

one last question

Ok, one last question.

So, readers wanted to know, does every member of The Herd tolerate Typhoon antics as well as Frankie.

To which Typhoon refers you back to the video and reminds you that at no point did he collide with Queen Natasha the Evil. Well, not on video. Yesterday during our regular walk, Typhoon bounced around and accidentally collided with QNTE. Let’s just say Typhoon spent the next several minutes of the walk hiding behind the Hu-dad. And we might have heard Frankie chuckle a little.

    Ty is so an uninhibited. He’s a pleasure to watch especially after losing Rusty. Every pack needs a comedian.

    My husky, Keeli, doesn’t tolerate plucking, brushing, toe nail trimming, or the blower. And let me tell you, she let’s everyone know her unhappiness with the blower when we go to the self bathing place. Everyone knows who Keeli is there. Most of them are probably sigh with relief when we only go in for dog food.

    oh no TyTy. You will just have to remind QNTE that, like popular TV commercial for a car insurance “news flash Queen accidents happen” lol. But yes best to mess with Big Bro in his lane of traffic. Snuggles Ty (oh let me pluck this one loose fluff rightttttt, there got it”. (That’s Kodas way too, “the no way” way. )

The Big Pout

Queen Natasha the Evil has many skills that allow her to lead The Herd and annoy the Hu-Dad, but no skill may be as great as the big pout.
