Hu-Dad often looks at our resident trouble-maker, Typhoon, and asks exactly when maturity starts. No answer seems to be coming soon.
Typhoon’s annual physical is this week. Considering the amount of squawking and screaming that accompanies such a trauma, Hu-Dad might not be looking forward to the annual event. But, it is a reminder that Typhoon has now been a permanent resident of Chez Herd for four years. So, yes, that means Typhoon is, more or less, five years old. And, yet, he is still all puppy.
As the above picture proves, Typhoon still screams at the top of his lungs if a brush approaches his fur. And we mean that literally. He is screaming before the brush actually makes contact. (And, yes, we know some confirmed pluckers have enlarged the above picture and are doing their best to pluck the fur through their computer screens).
He can still throw the longest pout when he doesn’t get his way, is always picky about his food, and refuses to walk normally on a leash. And heaven forbid he is ever asked to conform to some basic command such as come, sit, stay. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!
Every day, the Hu-Dad asks the Perpetual Puppy exactly when he plans to grow up. And Typhoon gives his best Peter Pan response – never.

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window. This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
