The Many Typhoon Moods

Why are you aiming the camera at me?

His Haughtiness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey ranks as the moodiest dog to ever grace Chez Herd. Today’s photographs were taken within seconds of each other and yet show how quickly our little man’s moods can change. From the pensive look above to the dismissive look below.

Oh, this camera snapping so gets on my nerves.

Don’t worry, in no time at all, Typhoon had decided his best approach was his usual approach – just ignoring the humans.

    Typhoon is the perpetual toddler! I think it’s great. I’m sure those around him, both human and animals, might not agree. If nothing else his Haugtiness brings entertainment to the Herd. Good thing cameras snap quickly now. You could write a novel about the many moods of Prince Phooey…

    From a fellow dog/RV owner in Waynesville, I would love to see how you accommodate the Herd in your RV.

      The humans lost their couch and built a wall of crates!
