Best Comfortable Spot

On a rainy, cold day when Hu-Dad is working on taxes, the battle for the best comfortable spot in the study was all important.

Roscoe claims the best comfortable spot in the study.

Sunday started out nice with enough sunshine to allow our morning walk, but once we returned to the house, storm clouds gathered. Oh, yeah, sure, outside where a steady rain dropped another inch on our already soaked ground. But also inside where Hu-Dad worked on his taxes. Weirdly, that never puts him in the best moods so he wasn’t interested in refereeing our jostling for prime napping places.

What do you mean you won't make him move?

We only have one crate in the study and it has a really thick mattress, so it really is the best place to hang out. Unfortunately, we were taking numbers to see who got it next.

Don't even think about it, Boom Boom.

Movie Memory Monday

A reader asked yesterday to see a video of Typhoon walking backwards, so we dug in our vault back to 2015 to find a video of the walking antics of our Little Prince – Twisting Turning Typhoon. Hope you don’t get too tangled up watching this one.

    Chaplin: “It varies from day to day, but we can tell you that it’s never the spot in front of the computer doing taxes!”

    Well done Roscoe!! Best seat in the den!
    Typhoon is such a talented character with his backwards walking and leash tangling expertise!

    What, no bed for everyone in the office?! ;-D I was thinking how hilarious the video would be at double speed. (It was already funny.)

    LOVE the way Roscoe has just made himself at home-grabbing the nice THICK pad in the crate. You would think he has been there forever-makes me SO happy. Too funny the way Typhoon is telling Boom Boom-“Don’t even think about getting the next chance”. Hu-Dad- thanks so much for the video from 2015 with Typhoon Phooey walking backwards and tangling the leashes-I am STILL laughing. He does have it down to a science.

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.
