New Year’s Party Animal

You should have seen us celebrating the turn of the year. Typhoon was our New Year’s Party Animal and we have the photos to prove it.

Why are sticking the camera in my crate? New Year's Party Animal
Why are you sticking the camera in my crate?

Uh, Typhoon, do you realize the sun has barely set on New Year’s Eve and you are already curled up in a crate napping? Don’t you think this is going to hurt your reputation as the delinquent of The Herd?

Sorry. Fell asleep while you were talking.
Sorry. Fell asleep while you were talking.

Fine. We have to admit. Hu-Dad curled up with a good book and we were all snoring by dark. Even our resident bad boy.

Just stretching out to snooze the night away.

We wish all of our readers a very Happy, Safe, Prosperous and Rewarding New Year.

    Proves dogs are smarter than the humans, standing in the rain to watch the ball drop. Ruby did the same as you Typhoon, had a FrostyPaw and slipped to dream land. Happy New Year!

    AAWW Typhoon-I’m so happy you and the Herd and Hu-Dad were safely snoozing the night away when 2019 came in! I look forward to many many more stories to start my days this year! Happy New Year!

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.
