Fear The Little Prince’s Wrath

Typhoon pickiness displays itself in many everyday occurrences. but nothing attracts the Little Prince’s wrath as much as weather interrupting his fun.

How dare Mother Nature displease me.

How dare Mother Nature displease me.

Yesterday, Typhoon spent the morning napping in Hu-Dad’s office while Cheoah claimed her usual couch in the den. Everyone else remained outside.

Around midday, the weather shifted and a small storm rolled over the mountaintop, releasing buckets of rain. Frankie is never a fan of bad weather, so he banged on the door to come inside. Landon has to go anywhere Frankie goes, so he also entered the house. The rains were strong enough that even Kiska and Qannik – the perpetual outdoor dogs – decide that inside was a great option.

Way too crowded for me inside.

With his previously quite napping spot getting noisy, His Highness insisted on going outside. When he saw the rain falling, however, he expressed his disdain to Hu-Dad.

Do something about this, Hu-Dad.

Do something about this, Hu-Dad.

We wish a Happy Independence Day to all of our American readers!

    Mom sez: Poor Ty, just seems like nothing wants to go HIS way these days. Hope things dry out for him pretty soon.

    We just can’t win here in WNC this summer. It’s nice one minute, pouring buckets the next. Poor herd.

    Lovely rain and some calories retained by Typhoon. Win win.

    I understand Little Prince. After enduring drought conditions here in Florida for months, we’re now experiencing huge amounts of dumping rainstorms that’ve been going on for weeks!!! Ugh!! Wishing you all a happy and safe 4th!

Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
