Acting Cool

When you are under pressure, it is important that you are always acting cool. Especially if the pressure if coming from a munchkin wanting to play.

Come on, let's rumble.

Come on, let’s rumble.

Typhoon’s endless energy should be harnessed and sold as he is a perpetual motion machine. His siblings love wrestling and chasing with him . . . for a while. And then . . .

Don't make eye contact. Don't make eye contact.

Don’t make eye contact. Don’t make eye contact.

So if one sibling turns him down, Munchie just moves on to the next victim.

Come on, sis, let's play.

Come on, sis, let’s play.

Not that the results are any different.

Don't make eye contact. Don't make eye contact.

Don’t make eye contact. Don’t make eye contact.

    Haha I like the above suggestions!

    That endless energy reminds me of Gatsby the Spitz – but it is directed towards humans! (Dogs she will have no part of.)

    Mom sez: Hmmm, poor Typhoon. Maybe you’re just going to have to expand the Herd, and get him his own “tireless puppy” to keep him happy!
