Behold The Clown Prince

The Little Prince Typhoon Phooey considers himself to be proper royalty, though Hu-Dad likes to point out he is more clown prince than crown prince.

I am prim and proper (except for the tufts of hair around my "wings")

The above is the image that His Little Highness wants everyone to see, but he is really more of a class clown. Everyone else might be napping, but he is playing.

Little Ty is always seeking out mischief and games, just as Siberian Huskies do.

Looking high for birds.

Unlike everyone else, though, he doesn’t like being caught. As you can see in the next photo.

Are you calling me the Clown Prince again?

    Mom sez: Typhoon is very much “his own Sibe”, with a “Peter Pan” personality, in that I doubt he will every fully grow up. Which can be a good thing, as long as he knows not to get into serious trouble, and I fully believe he’s smart enough for that!

    Typhoon is a very unique individual. Funny little monkey.
