Normal Backwards

Just a little family walk at the beach and everything is perfectly normal – if you consider walking in reverse to be a normal backwards.

Just a normal family walk.
Just a little family walk.

For Typhoon, backwards is normal.
For Typhoon, backwards is normal.

Yes, that’s right, we have more photographic evidence of our Little Prince walking in reverse because that is just his style. Some dogs like to see where they are going, some like to see where they have been, and some–like His Haughtiness—like to keep an eye on the Hu-Dad.

Our Little Prince has style.
