After yesterday’s vet visit, we are glad to report that we have a normal Typhoon. Of course, now we are confused what that means.
Typhoon’s recently celebrated his sixth anniversary of living at Chez Herd, so we estimate he is seven years old. With birthdays come vet visits, so he got to go be poked, prodded, tested, and weighed. And, most importantly, he had to have a blood draw for lab testing.
We are proud to report that we did not break the record of the number of people required to draw his blood (the record still stands at three), though he did show his pouty self by spitting treats at vet techs afterwards. The good news is that his eating habits remain strong, we have reduced his medication for diet issues again, and he continues to eat well. In other words, he has been declared “normal.”

Undercarriage Dog Wash
Q-tip loves hanging out in the yard, particularly on a rainy, muddy day like Sunday—even if it does mean he needs an undercarriage dog wash.
Way to go Phooey! My female spits her daily pill at us…we can literally hear her say ” patooey” as she spits the pill across the room. Sorry about the poking and prodding. The anal thermometer is demeaning enough…good boy though! You won’t have to do it again for a year. Until then, keep being your Typhoon self!
Mom ‘n Ebby both say: One definition of normal shows “normal” and “Typhoon” to be an oxymoron. Another old quote says, “Normal is a setting on your dryer”. Not sure which one would apply here. Just keep on being yourself, Ty!
Happy Gotcha Day Typhoon! What beautiful news on your birthday that you’re “normal”! Izzy the Akita also requires at least three techs to draw her blood. She just likes to help them hone their teching skills!!
Huskies aren’t ‘normal’ dogs and we love that quirky nature.
Happy to learn Typhoon is doing so well that he is now considered Normal. Typhoon’s normal is delightfully a little different from others. He is truly unique with his backwards walking, he knows the others are watching for dangers ahead and he is your self-appointed watch dog so he has to be in a position to protect your back. Love those dogs.
Good job Typhoon and Hu-Dad!! Always keep them guessing what normal means!! Much more fun????
Good boy Typhoon keep those techs in line.
Typhoon-so glad you are considered “Norma;”-lol but so happy you are healthy and happy. You can continue to walk backwards anytime you want and it will make us all happy!
