Will He Ever Learn?

Typhoon has lived at Chez Herd for well over two years, so we all ask the question, “Will he ever learn?”

prove stronger

Where is my sister? I want to prove I am stronger.

Typhoon loves nothing better than a good wrestling match and his favorite wrestling partner is Cheoah.

Got you now

He always goes high thinking that will allow him to dominate, but Cheoah is the master at keeping her weight low, even, and very, very steady. The end result is always something like this.

what do I do

Now what do I do?

Her task complete, Cheoah wanders away knowing that the next lesson will occur very soon – because Typhoon is nothing if not persistent.

Next time

Next time I win. I just know it.
