The Little Prince’s Expressive Face

Our resident Little Prince, Typhoon, has the most expressive face as he shows his disdain to Hu-Dad’s suggestions for better behavior.

Oh, please.

Oh, please.

Typhoon has long believed that the rules that apply to the rest of The Herd do not apply to him. While Siberian Huskies are notorious for their ability to disregard orders that don’t benefit them, Typhoon’s doesn’t feign deafness as an excuse – he just refuses.

You want me to do what?

You want me to do what?

We can’t show this in a simple photograph, but the look is often accompanied with the stamping of his front feety-feet, a percussion accompanying his looks of disgust and snorts of derision.

I see point in following orders.

I see no point in following orders.

    What a funny boy. Endearing (sometimes,) husky traits. We get the I’m ignoring you by not looking at you, but my ears are focused in your direction.

    When One is The Heir One knows the rules do not apply to Him.

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

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.
